I’m not sure what you mean…Do you mean a designer with a tag that says “made in China”?  I recently bought a dress that says “made in china” but, as far as I know, it’s a local designer.  So I’m confused by all that.

My Future Sister-In-Law had a replica made and she looked fabulous. Her dress was slightly small though. She was able to wear it during the ceremony and the beginning of the reception and then changed into something more comfortable for the remainder of the reception. It was a mermaid so it was difficult for her to sit. No one noticed that it was too small though; like I said, she looked fabulous.

I’m wearing two dresses and since the first was already over my dress budget and I had fallen in love with the Maggie Sottero Janessa also, I ordered a replica from Dress by You (they’re one of the China replica companies).  I figured that since I already had one beautiful dress there wasn’t too much risk involved. It came back beautiful and almost exactly like the real Janessa.  It came in two months to the DAY that I ordered it, which is what they promised. My only caution is that the proportions weren’t exactttly right, which I’m now spending $150 to alter (which is still substantially less than the real Janessa when added to the $230 or so I payed China).  Specifically, the torso was longer than the real Janessa creating almost a dropped waist appearance rather than the ballgown shape of the real Janessa. It’s alterable though.  Also, it was substantially less fluffy than the real Janessa (think about it, they have to ship it across an Ocean) but I ordered a $20 crinoline/petticoat off ebay and it fixed it.  In sum, I recommend Dress by You, but you should probably specify the lengths that you want each part of the dress.  I’m happy.  I still love my more fitted Maggie Sottero Jovi more, but the Janessa will let me wear a ballgown too.

I had one made. I’d ordered it before I found the one I’m going to wear so I couldn’t cancel it. It needed some tweaks but it fit perfectly (amazingly well) and overall I’m happy with it. Not sure what to do with it since I’m not going to be wearing it.

@camrie: You should do a TTD shoot!  I am actually thinking about ordering a cheaper replica from China so I don’t ruin my actual dress!

@dance: I might do that but I think I might just offer it up on here – free to a good home. Haven’t decided yet but I think it would be nice to just give it to someone in need.

@camrie:  Oh that would be so nice!  I didn’t even think of that!  I am sure there are many brides who would very much appreciate such a kind offer!

I’ve always wanted to be a 2 dress bride; I can totally see myself using most of my budget on a nice designer gown and then buying a cute reception dress replica from China for a couple hundred dollars. I checked out that Dress by You website that somebody mentioned and it looks like all their photos are of THEIR dresses and not designer pictures stolen, which is nice because you can see what you’re going to pay for.

ME!! I LOVE mine. I got it from lightinthebox.com!

I went with them because they post pictures of the dresses they have made not the originals. The ones from them are more like “inspired” rather then “knock offs”

I bought mine off of Ebay (100% positive rating) and LOVED IT!!!!  It is even prettier than the original $1,500 one I tried on!  No one believed I paid $156 for it…..just the chiffon to make it would be twice that.

Those who’ve posted that they got ones they liked, can you post the dress here? Maybe with a pic of the one it’s based on as well?
