@lashlylu:  I had my dress custom made and I can tell you that no, it’s not always cheaper. Mine ended up being the same price as the designer’s regular dresses. Alot depends on the style and look of the dress you want, and the ones you have pictured look to have a TON of detail work. It’s worth a try to get a quote though- you never know until you ask!

@lashlylu:  no, they weren’t local. I’m literally 5 hours away from any decent sized city so that wasn’t in the cards. We do have a woman locally that makes custom dresses but she’s got a very hippy style and that’s totally not my style so I knew I wouldn’t be happy with her stuff. I got my dress made by a vintage derby dress & wedding gown designer in LA- most of their pre-made dresses were around $500-$800 and they made me a custom gown for about $650, but I didn’t have alot of detail work like your pictures, it’s was pretty simple & straightforward… Here’s my dress:

 

It was a fun process and I did enjoy it, but didn’t save any money in the end.. I’m okay with that though, I got a dress that was exactly what I wanted, even though it wasn’t less expensive it still didn’t break the bank & fit our budget… I know other bees have posted about Jasmine’s replica website-hopefully one of them can pop in and give you some information!
