@beetobee255:  Its beautiful! The layers don’t look as flowy to me though. Maybe the top ruffles need to be just a touch longer?

Wow,  looks great! The only difference I can see is that the ruffles don’t have a raw edge to them like the original. Otherwise looks amazing! This may or may not be important to you, I probably prefer the raw edge look. I’m curious how much you paid for it?  I tried on this dress at the store before I decided on a similar style.

@beetobee255:  Maybe a bit. It still looks good, just different. I feel like ruffles are too organized? I’m not sure hiw to describe it, but they look layered differently on the original dress. Or maybe its just because they may be shorter?

These are minor things though. Congrats OP, that is going to be a show stopper on your day!

I should add that I had to look closely to see the difference,  I think they did a good job on this one!

I totally agree that the ruffles are too organized/stiff… I’m not even sure they used the same type of material to make them? The dress looks amazing though!

I actually like it better than the original divina. I think they did a great job.

i think they nailed the bodice. But couldn’t say the same to the skirt. The ruffles seemed short and stiff

The Divina dress  has always been a personal favorite of mine. That being said they did a great replica of the dress, the ruffles somehow doesn’t flow.

@beetobee255:  its a beautiful dress- and they did a great job as usual. If you are comparing, like the others say, the difference is in the skirt- The ruffles may be steamed to make them fall rather than hang up- but they need to add more layers of ruffles in between the layers they already have- it looks scantier
