Post all "Knock Off Wedding Dress" questions/comments here

Recommended Posts

Ok because I had such a hard time finding info on buying a Chinese knock off I want to post a detailed review. This dress is gorgeous. Really well made. Great details, there are little beading details that are very well done. The ruching is lovely. The fabric is really soft and pretty. I paid $200 including rush shipping and processing for a custom made wedding dress. There's a ribbed bodice, nice satin inner lining, beautiful chiffon outer layer. And it's exactly what I ordered. The waist could be taken in a bit but that's because I mismeasured my natural waist (took it too low and therefore the number was larger) and I meant to tell them to remove the train but I forgot. But they made exactly what I ordered and did an excellent job of copying the original. Honestly, it fits wonderfully and really doesn't need any alterations just that one little 1/2 inch or so! Best purchase I've ever made! Couldn't love it more.

 

 

They were super responsive when I asked them to remove the sequins, always answering my emails promptly. I could not recommend dressilyme.com more for a wedding dress. Not sure about bigger poofy ones but for this fairly simple sheath one I couldn't have done better. The quality is way better than most of the dresses I tried on at David's Bridal.

Hello everyone,

 

I'm new here on this forum. I am getting married in May 2015 but still have to find a dress! Because of time  (purchasing one here in Europe in bridal stores takes about 3-4 months to get it...) and budget constraints (well, you only wear it just once & I would rather spend more on the honeymoon than on the dress) I was leaning towards ordering one online... I found one I like on lightinthebox.com (http://www.lightinthebox.com/nl/MADISEN---Trouwjurk-van-Satijn_p80720.html). There are quite a lot of 'real' pictures on the website from brides who have posted their pictures. I would have it custom made to my measurements plus it has the lace-up in the back which should ensure it to fit nicely even if the size isn't perfect.

 

I have never really ordered clothes online before though and especially for a wedding dress I do have some reservations... Does anyone have experience with this website at all?

 

It is really cheap for a wedding dress but if this does not work out, I really wont have any time left to go find something else...

 

Any advice/thoughts/ideas you girls have to share would be very much appreciated!

 

Thanks!

I looked at this site as well. I would go ahead and take the chance and order it. As you said, there are many good reviews with actual photos so your chances of getting something you're happy with is pretty good. I ended up ordering a dress from a Chinese dress maker through Etsy. Instead of using designer photos they post their own designs. I was pleased with that because I was looking at photos of their acutal work. That plus almost 300 5-star reviews gave me confidence. I just placed my order on Monday so I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

 

Good luck.

Who did you use from Etsy?  I'm leaning towards Misdress.

Misdress was in the running and I had many communications with them but ultimately ordering from Mermaid bridal. I am ordering 2 dresses from Misdress for my daughters though. Misdress has many excellent reviews as well.

 

I see we have the same date! Congrats date twin. :)

You're welcome. FYI, China will be shut down for a  month beginning in a couple of weeks for Chinese New Year so your production time will be extended by that long. Don't wait too long to get your order in. Come back and post what you decide to go with!

    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
