    I hear you!!! When I knew Maggie would be my designer, I found those low priced dresses and got so excited too!! I had so many people say to me that it wouldn't be what I expected and that this is my wedding dress I was talking about going cheap on...I kind of decided they were right that it wasn't worth it. I am so crazy about my dress!!!!! :o) I'd like to see what they look like too!! You picked a GREAT dress -- It's so wierd that I thought the landis was THE dress for me for awhile, then I started getting the itch that I just felt like it was missing something for me (my style I mean)..I got back on maggies site and fell in love with Leoni and that was that! I called over a dozen salons until one store finally had to order in a 'rental' just to try it on!! I was determined, but it was well worth it! In my case, it was good that I went looking again...even though they say not to!

    ...and wow, people get bitter on this site!!!

          Crystal, very nice dress! It is perfect for beach wedding! I love the way it flows, it feels so light.

              Test Market was explained to me as the designer only puts out a couple dresses national wide to see how well they sell and if the designer will mass produce them. I am the only one in my state with this dress :) It's kinda cool to have one that unique.

                    I had a bad experience with the knock off. I originally wanted a Romona Keveza dress but after seeing the tag of 3k I thought going the knock off route would be good. The dress cost less than $300 but when I got it I didn't like it that much. After leaving it with my mom for two months I got it back and tried it on again and realized how much I hated it. I ended up shopping at the last minute for a dress and ended up with an Alfred Angelo that I loved much better...and the complete opposite of what I thought I wanted. For my body type I really needed to try on the dress to make sure it complimented me. Here's mine:
