    Hello All!

     

    I'm new to the forum...I'm likely not having a destination wedding (though I wish!) but this thread is best I have ever found regarding knock-off gowns. Thanks ladies!

     

    I have a couple concerns. I have tried on similar styles to gowns I love in stores and I really love the fabric and how it fits. I am wondering if the fabric will be anywhere near the same. I'm not big on satin or any other shiny materials. I like the matte taffetas, organzas, and chiffon type fabrics.

     

    I also go towards a more atypical dress design. I stay away from any lace and beading, but the dresses I love have A LOT of detail in the fabric. I'd love to get a dress like these made:

    apologies for the giant pictures.

     

    Does anyone have experience having a dress with a ton of fabric detail like these made? How did it turn out?

     

    Thanks!!

      hahahaha...Rowe ..this reminds me of a $6000 dress that we saw a couple of pages ago....no comment!  However, I think Babyonline can make it.

       

      Misst,

      I don't know why u picked that vendor for a dress that needs heavy beading skills, but I think u can ask them to add more beadings.  Plus, it is hard to judge from photos, usually the real dress is more beautiful.

              Just to keep you all posted. I still haven't received my dress. With all the hassle I've been going through trying to get this dress, it better fit perfect. I'm also worried to try on my first one since I unintentionally lost weight, it might not fit either.

                I think I might have seen the dress you're referring to. But that one had a few fabric flowers attached to the skirt whereas with these styles, the skirt is just made up of the fabric floral detail, no separating the two. Bit trickier to pull off.

                 

                 

                Whats Babyonline's website/contact info? I couldn't find them through ebay or a google search. Thanks.

                  Rowe, they are a seller on dhgate.com. It's very similar to ebay. If you want to contact them, sign up for an account on that website.

                    Thanks, mochamakes3!

                     

                    They look promising. The finished product photos that they have a few of look really good. And so inexpensive! For good quality materials, I am willing to pay a bit more but I may not have to with this seller.

                      Rowe, Just make sure to order well in advance. I ordered early February, I was promised to receive my dress by March 20, it was not sent until March 28 and it is still in transit. We leave next week, so no alterations for me.
