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?
