I would almost always vote to get the real one. You never know what you’re getting with a knock-off.

I also see major differences.  It’s also hard to really tell what the quality is like in the pictures.  Plus, just because it looks a certain way in what they are advertising doesn’t mean it will be the same if they make one for you.

I would be leery about ordering a knockoff.  Have you tried getting a price quote fron Netbride.com?  They sell actual designer dresses, not knockoffs, and you may be able to save a lot of money than if you got it from the store.

Get the real one, support the designer.  That way you know what you are going to get.

I would get the real one.  The knock off is no where near as pretty as the real one.

If the real one is in your budget then go for it, but if it’s not or it’s a strech (or money you’d like to have to run-over in another area) consider the knock-off.  I personally have no problem with knock-offs.  I don’t feel wedding dress quality is as much an issue because the dress only needs to holdup for a (not even full) day.  Not too many people are coming up inspecting seems and beading detail.  But alas that’s just IMO.  Yes, I see the differences, but it’s not a uniform that you need to match to someone else.  You may end up liking the design of the cheaper one better.

I was always told you get what you pay for.  Go with the Allure.

Go with the Allure, the knock-off doesn’t look the same at all!

If it’s in your budget to get the real one, then definitely do so. But if it’s not, the only differences I see in the two dresses is that the knockoff is done is gold stitching and has less beading in the bodice. I would think that you could ask the company to do ivory/cream stiching instead of gold and that you could ask them to add beading to the bodice for sparkle.

I agree, if you can swing it, go with the Allure – I see a lot of differences with the knock-off.

In my opinion the real one blows the knock off out of the water.  It’s gorgeous!  So beautiful honey!
