anapoa27, Thank you! I feel I got a great deal too cause the inspiration dress here is about $1,600 to $2,000 CAN dollers. Since I didn't go to the bridal stores I can't compare to the inspiration dress but I do know the price range of the inspiration dress and I'm happy with th quality of my dressilyme. I hope my review helped you with your research on Knock-off dresses.

here in Brazil, wedding gowns are extremely expensive - I mean it. it's virtually impossible to get a dress here for less than $1.000 and still, the fit and the quality of the materials is not good. so I feel great about the possibility of getting a knock-off dress from China.
That dressilyme dress is amazing. Congratulations! you must be so happy. Even the packaging looks professional. Beading, details and fit are spot on.
Thank you very much dshane! It is true that I never tried on a single wedding dresss in stores or even went to the bridal stores. However, I looked at thousands of dresses online and my mum/friends and I talked about different styles of dresses and how they would look on me. Everyone was so nervous for me because they thought i should at least try on dresses but I decided to really focus on designers that make a range of sizes like maggie sottero, bonnie bridal, morie lee, Sincerity and Callista for brides with Curves. LIke Misskim said it might be a good idea to take pictures while you are at the bridal store so that you are positive about the style . I read this entire thread numerous times for about a year and half now. I also read posts on weddingbee and project wedding. Everytime someone said a new seller I did my own research. I focused on which sellers who got measurements right and structure support on a regular bases. Then I looked at what people said about materials like beads and fabric. Like you said "know what you want and get it done without outside influencing deterring you. Please do your own research and don't rely on just a few opinions. But i do hope that this has helped a little with nerves and fears!

Amazing. I have opted to try on dresses (sample sale) and if I find the right one that is outside how much I want to spend, I will definitely be looking to get it online.
Again.... The dress is amazing and it looks great on you. Cheers to you for knowing what you want and getting it done without outside influences deterring you from doing it your way.
