    Hello everyone,

    I keep falling in love with Maggie Sottero dresses, specifically the Catarina, Leoni, Karena, Florencia and Ella.

    Has anyone had a nice copy made of any of her dresses?
    In general I notice these dresses all have a nice lace with decals everywhere and they all have some beadwork going on in the bodice with a lot of tulle underneath. 

    Who would be a good maker for these styles?
    Below is a pic of one of my favorites.


    TYIA :)

        i'm getting one of dresses for myself.

        Are you living in united states or canada?

        i check out the price for the states and its around 10-15000 for some nice ones.

        I don't have any links for knock off's but i think you pay for what you get.


        I have to go to the canadian stores to see the prices soo, if it's too high i'm most likely going to buy it in the states.



        BUT GOOD LUCK!






        Married! xo

          I think your best best is to go to the knockoff dresses thread. There is a ton of information there and different people have used many different replica companies. You can read reviews, see pictures and figure out which you think would be best.

            Thank you,
            I went through almost every page in the knock offs thread but it was pretty confusing... wasn't sure if there was a company most known for this kind of material etc.

              I have read through the whole knock-off thread as well and it's really a bit of a crapshoot in my opinion.  I got a knockoff made for Maggie Sottero Jovi and it is exactly like the picture and was really well made with good quality material.  You won't always end up with a cheap dress if you can't afford to pay thousands of dollars.


              My one suggestion if you are thinking of a knock off:  if you are a very picky person and/or if you have really specific expectations about your dress, don't get a knock off - it will be too stressful for you and there is likely to be something that you don't like since it is not the exact dress that you like in the picture.  If not, give it a try, I know in my experience it was definitely worth it.

                  Hi MarlenaMami....please try jasminesbridalshop.com.  They did an AWESOME job with my dress.  The communication which is most important when ordering anything online was amazing.  Check out there website becauseI believe they have Maggie dresses.  Their site also shows you work they have completed and not just the designer photos.  I was/am a budget bride and I refused to spend $1,000's on a dress.  As I mentioned, the communication was great and they send you pictures in progress.  I searched online for about a month until I found them.  Other websites may be a little fancier, but hands down they have the BEST work.  Their site has a link on facebook so you can see some of their work. 


                  Good Luck!  Let us know what you decide!



                  So Amazing......July 4, 2012!!!!!!

                    Why get a knock off when you can get the real thing for a fraction of the cost?!?



                    Try the website above, they carry Maggie's dresses and I checked with the company, this website sells legit real brand name dresses!


                    Good luck!

                      I used a seller on ebay - not sure of the name off hand but I can get it for you if you want.  I have also ordered my bridesmaid dresses from a different ebay seller but haven't received them yet so I'm not sure how they will turn out!
