Hi I’m struggling with a decision where to get the dress of my dreams from. It’s Allure 8764 and I’m absolutely in love with it. I’ve tried it on and it’s so dressy and classy..
Trouble is the price of an original gown. It’s way out of my planned budget so I’ve found this website where you can buy a replica and it’s so much cheaper!! It says that the dress they make in ‘deluxe plan’ will be similar in 98%. That would be close enough for me if not the fact, that it’s a lace dress. I don’t want to end up wearing a net curtain on my wedding day if they’ll decide to take 2% off from the lace they will use to make my dress!!
Some of you have already had some experience with this company but have you ordered a dress that would have lace elements? Would you say they were as nice as original ones?

Have you looked into used options?
I tried on a lot of lace dresses, and the lace can make a big difference. I would be a bit wary of ordering it from a knockoff site…I would hate for it to arrive and it just not look right.

@jennyfe43: you are so right!
I already decided I’m not ordering it from phoebebridal as it is almost imposible to contact them so the risk is just to high. They’ve only managed to answer for one of my enquiries saying
‘ i am very sorry i am not have a picture of this dress we made. we made this dress many times before and our client like. i have some picture of the dresses we made but this style. if you like we can send it to check, thanks’
…so I kindly asked them to ‘send it to check’ (13 days ago) and still have no answer.
Although I feel pressure (at the end of the day it’s TIME to decide something) I still hope for some kind of miracle to happen and I will finally find the original one much cheaper 😉

@megg: you might check out scarlettscloset.com. They sell sample dresses bought from other stores. They have some screaming good deals on there. I bought a few evening gowns from them and with some slight alterations they were perfect.
