@MsAmandaAnn:  A lot of brides on here have had great experiences with Dressilyme and Jasmine’s Bridal. I would definitely check those out for a knock-off or a copy. I think people may have had a slightly better experience with Jasmine’s. 🙂

Most gowns, even designer gowns, are made in China. Jasmines or Dressilyme come highly recommended.

Check out the cheaper designers and see if they make a cheaper version! Allure and Maggie Sottero both have TONS of gowns!

@MsAmandaAnn:  Jasmine’s Bridal out of all the overseas vendors probably produce the best work. I got my dress from them. Just search the forums, alot of bee’s are JB Brides and there are several threads about them. They also have a facebook page with more examples of their work. Keep in mind that they are really popular now, so they are being selective about which jobs they take on (which speaks alot about the quality of their work, they would rather turn down your money to produce a better quality dress for a prior existing customer than to hastily design a crap dress). Plus the customer service agents are fluent in english, which is a major help. This was my dress!

@MsAmandaAnn:  That dress is beautiful!! I would never consider ordering a chinese knockoff dress. If you love the dress enough, its worth the money, if not, look for other dresses in your price range.

The only advice I can give you is contact Sondra Celli who is in Waltham, MA. She is such an awesome dress maker. She will sit down with you and create whatever you want but I am not sure what the cost would be for your dress but you can contact her and see what says.

I am having her make my wedding gown because I was having difficulties finding what I wanted so we agreed she will do it. I wear a size 18 street size and I didnt want the wedding gowns that I seen. They made me depressed I didnt feel they were made for me. I want a blush dress and designers who were making plus size wedding dresses forgot that we all dont want white or ivory nor do we want to look like everybody else.  


I hope this helps best of luck.
