This blog is born because it was hard to find reviews of these online shops selling wedding dresses.
My dream dress from Maggie Sottero Hampton that is about $1,400! I found a knock off on inweddingdress.com for $300 (including shipping).
The goal of this blog is to provide knock off wedding dress reviews from every bride that has ordered one.
I found this dress on various sites that make designer replicas: !
The list goes on...
All of these sites sell the replicated Maggie Sottero Hampton for around $150-$300. That's a pretty affordable price. How could it be so cheap? I googled each site and hardly found reviews about them. I decided to email www.inweddingdress.com and asked them this:
I was wondering if you could send me real photos of the actualy wedding dress that you make for Style DE022? Also, I found a ton of other sites just like yours that sell this dress for less (example lightinthebox.com houseofbrides.com bestdressprice.com)...They are charging around $150.00. Are your dresses higher quality? I would like Style DE022 to be exactly as pictured and the fabric to be the same. Is this possible?. If so, then ordering from you would be good.
looking forward to hearing from you.
This is their reply:
Thank you for your interest in our dresses. We use taffeta to make this dress. Sorry that we did not have a complete photos of all the styles, We will custom the dress exactly look like the picture. To be instead, we sent you DE097 which is in similar design for you reference. The photo is taken from our workshop, the photo quality is not very good, only can be taken for your reference.
All our dresses are custom made with the measurements given, we recommend you to order custom size, which is free of charge and also can help the dress fit well, if only your measurements are correct, the dress will be fitted. You could check our how to measure for directions.
If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact us.
This is the dress they are trying to replicate:
Doesn't look the same huh? well..I'm going to take a leap of faith and order it.
I believe the site says that I should receive this dress within a month or two. I will update this blog with pictures and a detail description of the dress once I receive my gorgeous dress.
Please feel free to send me pictures of your dresses that you actually received from any of these sites. Please send me detailed reviews about the material, the fit, the stitching..etc. I would gladly post everything for you on this blog.
I hope to hear from all of you brides out there!
Thanks for reading.
Until my next posting...(can't wait for my dress to arrive!!)
