(I almost died... I'm paying $1500 for this puppy -- minus alterations -- and they're selling it for just under $400.) I have to get a few alterations done, too. The bust is a little too tight and it's way too long (I'm 5'6.5", but am wearing flats... probably). So think it over and let me know...

Anyway, here's one of the links I found:

OMG Melaina I want to get married again just so that I can wear that dress! I LOVE IT!

I almost picked her Landis design!! It's beautiful and perfect for a DW...I ended up with Leoni because it had a combination of that dress with the extra edge I really wanted!!

ooooh ladies those links scare me!!! A maggie for less than $400.. that spells disaster!! Be careful of deep discounted dresses!!!! They are NOT true designer dresses, they are mock-ups and almost never match the dress design OR quality!! This is your wedding dress ladies, not the place in the budget to cut corners :oP

well well well, I ve seen a real 100% authentic Maggie in Hong Kong for $200USD...fyi, all Maggie and most of the Pronovias are made in china (Amsale, Vera Wang, Monique Thuiller are 100% made in USA), so you can find them in HK for much much less. Of course, if $1000 can buy the insurance for sleeping in peace, it is a decent price to pay. I believe it is the girl who makes the dress, not the dress that makes the girl.
As long as it fits perfectly, and it makes the bride feels beautiful, then it is the perfect dress (designer or not designer).

You are SO sweet. I bought it like two weeks after we got engaged (haha) and there have been times (especially watching this thread!) when I wonder if I should've waited and tried on more dresses. Hearing an outside voice confirms what I think I know... that I love it :)

Yeah, I'm too chicken to purchase a dress online (heck, I'm even nervous about buying my BM's dresses online!). It was just such a huge eye-opener to see that the same dress was available for the fraction of what I paid. I'd love to see what one of those knock-offs really look like.... Sigh.

Sorry I didn't post the actual pic, I'm afraid to put the pictures on my photobucket just in case my FI comes across it!!!!
Pretty dress. Just as a FYI- if you go to a website and right click on the picture and get the web address- under properties, you can copy it and paste the website using the lil "picture" icon here. Sounds complicated- but basically the same way as posting a photo via photobucket, but your FI can't see!

We have a knock off dress thread here. Check that out to see how it's worked out for them. It's kinda too scary for me, but I think I've seen some happy reviews.

I just love wedding dresses and still have Say Yes to the Dress on my DVR recordings. Beautiful dresses ladies!!

Melaina,

When u try on the dress, u would know if it is the ONE! Don't second guess!
I did my own drawings, so I knew that is what I want. I tried on so many dresses, and they were a bit weird, maybe they were too big for me.
Some knock-offs are very bad. Asymetric bust, pin marks, weird proportion and scarce beadings ( I ve seen it on different websites and on this forum). Some are very nice with nice imported materials and true to the original, my guess is that the dressmaker did get the original pattern of the original Maggie or Pronovias/LaSposa/San Patrick dress since these brands are..manufactured in China.

Hi ladies!

 

This is my dress. I'm adding spaghetti straps to it, and it hasn't been altered (its way too long) but you get the idea :)

It's a Cosmobella #7411. It was about $1000.
