Might be a little tedious but try going on Marisa’s website and looking through the “Family Album,” that’s the only way I could find pictures of my Marisa dress! Good luck – it’s beautiful!

I’m not sure what dress it is… BUMP for other views while I look around the interwebs 🙂

I know how you feel! I’m a Marisa bride and my dress is from 2011 I believe and I have two pictures of real brides in it – took me forever to find! They’re getting better with advertising and posting pictures of their dresses on models. They never used to do that! It’s such an unknown brand!

I think I know what dress that was originally, and if so, the lace was definitely added. Maybe you could haggle to $700 or so because the integrity of the dress was compromised. Try bringing in a picture of the original.

 

If it was untouched, original quality, I’d say $1000 would be great.

I bought my 2011 Marisa in January 2013 and it still cost $2995. The craftsmanship and detail is unbelievable, and I’ve never seen an even slightly similar dress. I’m in love with it!

@taylorkirby:  You could try to bargain for it, but you are at a disadvantage because you are in love with it.

You’ve done your homework. If these dresses sell for the prices you metioned, yours is in that ball park. Offer lower, but be prepared to spend $1,000.

It’s a lovelyd ress, by the way. Waht is that fabric? I do like the shade of it. It must be silk if it’s been dyed.

That dress is amazing. I would email Marisa and find out the original MSRP, then go from there. I would tell the shop owner that you found the dress retailed for $1000 (or whatever Marisa tells you), and then I would offer them 50% of that.

I wouldn’t pay more for a dress that is already worn, altered, dyed, and had lace added. It’s not that its not BEAUTIFUL, its just he principle of the matter. Dresses that are 5+ years old and have been extensively “messed with” just aren’t worth 80% of retail price. That lady is crazy.

I’d offer her $500  (I’d go IN there with $500 cash in hand) and let her think about it for a week or two. I bet she takes it.

Just looked and sites suggest that the MSRP was $1900, in which case I would offer about $700 (I realize that’s less than 50% of retail but your dress has had a LOT done).

Also preowned wedding dresses.com says this dress was on SYTTD in 2012, so I doubt it is 5 years old.
