I wouldn’t trust it. I made the mistake of ordering a dress off of etsy from a different seller (also from outside the US) and it was a total waste of money and not even close to the measurements I sent. 

That store also only has 6 reviews, but it’s been open for over a year and has 76 sales. That makes me skeptical. It could just be people from the company making different accounts to leave a good review.

Keep the dress you already have, it’s gorgeous and I can guarantee you that almost any custom dress you buy off etsy will look “cheaper” than the one you have.

I like the one you bought much better.  I think the one from Etsy is borderline trashy.  I think the first one is much nicer.  Please don’t blow that money on the Etsy dress, your’s is beautiful, and I’m sure it will look gorgeous on.

And the etsy dress looks identical to a Ghalia Lahav… But i would be worried to buy it on etsy without seeing real photos of what the dress looks like, rather than the promo picture… I think you shoould stick to yours, but thats just my opinion. Do whateever makes you feel beautiful 🙂

llcoolray:  I understand your dilemma 🙁 I personally prefer the second one (but  that’s just me being a bit of a non-an for the curly organza). Since you’ve bought the first dress though, I suggest trying it on again and taking pictures. I guess you purchased it because you loved it in the first place after all. But I think, ultimately, if you have having second thoughts then try to ease it by trying the dress on again and if it really doesn’t make you feel happy, go for the other 🙂

Calm down, that dress is beautiful! Even if it were cheap material, it is not like you’re getting married under fluorescent lights. 😉 That being said, if you TRULY are thinking of switching dresses, the Etsy dress is also lovely. But I think your first dress is great! I am sensitive to cheap looking dresses and I honestly don’t see it at all. When I think of cheap, I think of something overly shiny and 80s prom.

Your dress does not look cheap. Is that divina?

Anyway, it’s beautiful.

A replica dress from China WILL look cheap in comparison to yours. It lacks the same quality control.

llcoolray:  I know right?! I tried one on during my dress shopping two weeks ago, but I have to say they are gorgeous on the rack, but if your not stick thin, it isn’t flattering 🙁 I’m a size 6 and it made me look pretty bad haha. I’ll stick to drooling over the models in it!!!
