Ok so I have been emailing back and forth with Dressilyme asking a bunch of questions about the two dresses I want made. Well it turns out that they can’t make them!!! I want the Maggie Sottero Venecia and the James Clifford 11177. I send them pictures of me on the dress and also the pictures from the designer website. But I just got an email that says that they cannot make the dresses from the pictures I sent, because the will the be able to guarantee the quality of the product (which is fine, I like that they are honest).
But what to do now???? Any other good vendors?? 🙁 These dresses are from recent collections and it doesnt seem like chinese replica makers have made a lot of them..Please help!!

@elliestan: Yes of course. But the idea of having it made by Dressilyme (or any other online vendor) is to save some money. If I buy it locally at a bridal store this dress is well over $1000 dollars!

Have you looked local for a seamstress?

@peacockchris: I would try emailing Milly Bridal, Landy Bridal & Jasmine’s Bridal for quotes- they are all reputable for making quality replicas, plus they have a ton of reviews & may have already made one of the two you’re looking for.
Milly is bit more expensive because they make a test dress first for you to approve, but that is probably favorable to some brides. I found Jasmine’s on facebook recently where they have actual pics of dresses they made & they were AWESOME.

Have you looked at other less expensive designers who might stock a similar gown?

These companies have great reviews.
Of course there are more options out there. It seems these are having consisent results.
Can you post a picture of the dress they said no to?
Sometimes it has to do with a match in materials or the complexity of the gown. Either way I am sure we can help you find a trustworhty company.

That dress is georgous and you look great in it. Milly Bridal is suppose to be the best. I’m planning on buying from Shades of Pale because they have tons of pictures of the actual dresses that they make not just the designer’s pictures and its an American woman who runs it so she speaks perfect English so she will be able to understand exactly what I want. Avoid Coral and Jeffliu I have heard some really bad things. Also Shades of Pale’s real pictures are definitly way better than Jasmine Bridals real pics. Good luck ordering your dress.

I would try April Bridal or mybigfatbeautifulwedding.com. The second one has pics of dresses they have actually made on their site not just designer pics

I forgot about mybigfatbeautifulwedding.com
I don’t think its complicated or that the material is different. I am not sure why they didn’t agree to your dress but there are other really great companies to choose from.
I hope you can find the right one for you.
