    I haven't seen lot chiffon dresses replicas, do you think the "flow" would be good? While I love traditional gowns, they are not enough "beachy" for me. Many of Maggie Destinations are made of chiffon, and I love how it floats around in the pics. I fell in love with this one ( SD5238 ). I could probably pay full retail (not so expensive), but I don't have the time, so my only choice is a replica. I just want it to have the same "grace", what do you think?

      hello everyone. I have ordered a lace gown from them and I should be getting it at the end of this month.. so as soon as I receive it I will surely tell you and show you how it turns out!


      As far as the chiffon dress by Maggie, I'm sure it would be pretty easy for them to duplicate. Good luck to all of you! I hope I love the dress when it gets here because I am out of time to order from a bridal store around me!

        A girl on this site (RachelRaye-spelling could be wrong, but she has posted in this thread) had a Maggie dress replicated. It turned out beautifully. It was also chiffon. I believe she even had the dress up for sale on this site.

        Have you tried off the rack? Maybe a bridal store carries your size and you wouldn't have to alter it so it would be ready in time for your April wedding.

            Thanks, I've checked Rachel's dress and it is pretty nice. Anyway, I don't know how I could be disappointed when I haven't even tried on one of those 1000$ dresses!

            And there are no bridal stores carrying Maggie Destination around here, I'd have to drive down to the States 2h, or in another city 3 hours. Maybe I could just call them to see if I can at least try it on, but we have so much to do here right now (big DIY house reno), I just don't know...

            This is so much work. I thought you could just go and buy dresses off the rack!

              Ladies, have to say that this thread is fantastic!!!
              I do have a dress already, but I' thinking of selling it and getting one more, beachy, so to say from eBay!
              Always good to see the reviews!

                Ewok, none of the stores on Plaza St-Hubert carrie Maggie Destination? When I looked at the store locator of their website, they mentioned a few of those sores. Though they could be carrying just other collections by Maggie.

                    I posted in here a while back about getting my replica dress. I was torn once I received it, but ended up wearing it on my wedding day. LOVED IT! I just got my pro pictures back (one is in my siggie). Ill try and post a link tomorrow so you can see an up close picture of it :)

                    It was a replica of a sottero & midgley dress :)
