I fell in love with an Oleg Cassini dress at David's Bridal, but the price was more than I desired to spend. I spent some time researching knock-offs and reading blogs from other brides who had ordered them. I ended up purchasing a knock-off of the dress from StopDress.com (made in China). I got the knock-off dress and the fit and stitching was just amazing... it was perfect, better than the designer. But, having fallen in love with the real thing, I found that the knock-off fabric and beading was not the soft, charming feel I'd fallen in love with. I ended up selling the knock-off dress for the price I paid on weddingdressmarket.com. I do believe that had I never seen the designer dress, I would have loved the knock-off, particularly if there was no beading involved.
