I finally just went for it and ordered my "scarlet" inspired gown from bridaldress4u.com.  I ordered it (2) weeks ago and sent them my custom measurements. I paid $595 with shipping. I keep checking their ebay feedback and they have gotten at least 3-4 positive comments in the last few weeks. Everytime I have emailed them with questions they get back to me really quick. When I get my dress I’ll post how it went here… 

I’m keeping a back up dress in mind… just incase!

I ordered the "Scarlet" inspired gown from bridaldress4u.com. I had my heart set on that design, but nothing could justify that price tag in the bridal salon. The staff was very helpful and the dress shipped promptly. When it arrived, I tore open the box in anticipation to find a beautiful gown…….that didn’t fit at all! Not even remotely. I’m not sure what happened there as I sent in very precise meaurements.

I took the gown to a highly qualified seamstress in NYC who designs/sews costumes for the New York City ballet. Her name is Carmen Gee http://www.carmengee.com and I HIGHLY recommend her. She confirmed that the dress would require major alterations (no surprise there), but she did say the fabric was good quality so at least the company didn’t fleece me there. She also said the quality of the sewing left something to be desired. The dress had to be taken completely apart and resewn. A couple hundred dollars in alterations later, I had the gown I wanted.

In closing, my experience with bridaldress4u.com was mixed–the gown did highly resemble (though it wasn’t an exact replica) the designer dress in the photo. The fabric was of good quality. The workmanship was less good, though not terrible. The fit was not at all to my specifications. All turned out well in the end, but if I could relive the experience, I would probably have Carmen sew the gown from start to finish. An experienced seamstress should be able to replicate any gown from a photo. Hope that helps.

Oh goodness, thanks so much for this post!  I have been eyeing the "Miranda" knockoff on bridaldress4u…now I am scared too. 

MIF, was the dress you received too big, or too small?

@Kimbeerlee: I emailed you a picture. I don’t know how relevant it is though, since I had the dress substantially altered. Also the original neckline was much lower. My mother was scandalized so I had it raised.

@hulafish: The dress was much too big. I’m a size 2. I estimate the dress I received was at least a 6.

@jtuholsky: I have pictures of a scarlet replica from bridaldress4u. If you PM me your email address, i will send them to you. I was considering getting the same dress through them, but, I decided to go another route. They might be helpful for you to look at.

Designbee and sprinkles-

would you be able to send me your replica photos as well? My email is [email protected].

I was looking into bridaldress4u.com, but am just a little nervous about it without trying it on first. Scarlett is my dream dress, but I have an 800 or less budget!!

I  hate to sound like a broken record, but I’m also in love with the Scarlet dress but can’t afford the real thing.  If any of you who have pictures of a replica dress, I’d love to see pictures. My e-mail is [email protected]. Thanks!
