    I have not tried this dress on because I can't find it anywhere, but I thought if I could find a replica of it, that might be enough for me. I just love it!!!
    I have looked on a few different websites such as Light in the Box and InWeddingDress but, no luck so far. Will these places try and replicate a dress if you ask them too? Or has anyone seen this dress come up in their searches?? Thanks for your help!

      Ive seen this dress all over Ebay from the China sellers who do custom dresses. I would look on there, look at their feedback and see if anyone bought the same dress and look at the comments.

        The store locater says that they have a store in Brampton - L & J Bridal. Maybe give them a call and see if they either have it, or can order it in for you?

        It is gorgeous! If you find it, make sure you post pics!

        Good luck!

          I looked on eBay and was only able to find an inspired dress, which I think looks awful!

          I have already contacted L&J Bridal in Brampton as well. They don't have it in the salon but can special order it for purchase ......$4500 - $5500. Out of my price range, unfortunately!

            I asked Light in the Box when I ordered my dress if they make custom dresses-they can copy a photo-but I felt this was risky so I ordered one thay had on the site.
            If u love it-their prices are great so maybe u want to take the risk? U can always get it altered afterwards....

            Good Luck!!

              Has anyone actually ordered from Light In A Box? Seems like there is mixed messages. I have looked on TheCustomDresses.com and they are a chinese company as well,who have emailed me and said that they can replicate any dress on their website or from a pic you send them, up to 95%. I'm hesistant in ordering a repicate of my designer dress for $200, when regualar price is 7500! Seem to
              o good to be true! Can anyone vouch for any of these chinese companies online or on ebay?? Thanks.

                I ordered mine from inweddingdress.com and I have to say that it looks like the photo on their website (with the exception of the 100# model being in the dress and I'm not that) They as well as light in the box do custom dresses. Most of these companies offer their dresses for $100-300 so they are not going to be perfect. If you are that type of person that expects perfection, then I do not suggest going with them. The ONLY problem that I had is my dress is a corset back and I have to tighten the strings all the way for the dress to fit and I think it is still a little big. No problem for me because I knew I would have to have some alterations done. PM me your email address if you would like to see photos of my dress.

                  I don't know exactly what your budget is, but here's an authentic one on ebay - you might be able to make an offer!

                    Thanks ... I saw that one but it's size 10-12 which will be too big for me. Also, the price is still a little high for something I have never tried on. I wish I could find it and try it on before I actually purchase.

                      I know this doesn't really help, but I found my dress on a Chinese website and got scared about quality and fit, by the time I found the original designer, no one within 3 hours of me could get it in in time, so I am having mine custom made. I found a lady in town through google. She has a software program that she entered my measurements into and it made a pattern. Should have the dress next week, but so far I'm happy with the process. And its custom to me!
