    LOL!

    I tried on dresses very similar to what I wanted, and if when they looked good I decided to order the dress online - in part because I couldn't find EXCATLY what I wanted in stores, and in part because it was a price too good to beat.

    If you love a certain style or even a certain dress, see if you can't find it online. And as long as its a close fit, you can always get it altered if its not perfect. Still might be cheaper than buying a dress from a salon that you will have to alter anyway.

      I wouldn't really say that's true. I tried the original on in a store and knew it's what I wanted - just not what I could afford. Then the place I'm ordering from will send me proof picts and I have the option not to buy it. So, I know before really committing if it's going to be close enough to make me happy. A lot of ladies CAN order a dress they haven't tried on or have a completely custom one made and be really happy. From past experiences I know this doesn't work out for me. I bought two sample wedding dresses on ebay and hadn't tried on either one. I got them and just wasn't in love with them. I also ordered my reception dress online (Amazon) and just got it yesterday. I was again, disappointed in the quality mostly. But that's really my fault for not asking the seller what the material was (they didn't list it). In this situation, I know I LOVE the style and know what kind of material they'll use so I have no reservations about it.

      But i'm sure if you found something you liked in a store and knew the style/fit were right for you - there'd be no problem with the knockoff. As long as you ask the right questions and make sure the seller understands what you want, you can't go wrong!

        Ok, here was my shot at getting a knock-off. I finally got it and it is a beautiful dress! It's even very well made! I just do not like how it looks on my body type. I ordered it thinking it could be a TTD if anything. Not a bad dress, just not for me. SOOOO if anyone likes it I have a post in the "Sell, Trade, Freebie" category with this on there

            RaychelRae!! That's so pretty! I have a hard time believing anything would look bad on you btw. Too bad it didn't work out.

              Awwww! Thank you! You're a sweetheart!

              I got it from a seller on Ebay for $160. Since it was kind of a blind trial run for me I'm not looking to make any money on it, just trying to get my money back so I can start looking for another one! : )

                  They did such a good job. Is it a Maggie knock-off?? Looks like one of the destination ones I was going to get for my TTD.
