I’ve tried both of these on. The Alfred Angelo 1148 and the Augusta Jones Tia are nearly the same. I’ve seen a post on here about the comparisons between them. The main difference is the Alfred Angelo has a corset back whereas the Augusta Jones is buttons. The Augusta Jones has a peony on the back of the dress and it’s got Swarovski Crystals on the skirt, which are beautiful. The ruching though is better on the Alfred Angelo. The important difference is price. I think the Alfred Angelo was like £700$1000 whereas the Augusta Jones is £1400/$2170.

there’s a bee on here that has an expensive version of the popular david’s bridal bow dress with the rhinestone buckle. it’s funny how blatant the knock-offs are!

Da Vinci has totally ripped off DB.  They look like they have ripped off Maggie Sottero too.

I wouldn’t say they are duping us…you’d have to kno the materials used. As well as the name came make one or the other more expensive..ya kno. I really don’t think that a David’s Bridal dress will be the same qaulity..even if they look the same in photos.

I’ve seen a lot of copies of Maggie’s Jenna. Forever Yours and Jacqueline has one.

Bells, I was going to post the same pics of the davids bridal vrs. the alfred angelo! I tried the Davids bridal one on but it wasn’t really me, although it was my stepmom’s favorite!!! I later saw that Alfred Angelo in a magazine or something, it’s crazy how similiar it is….

I think sometimes designers have similar dresses because its what the trends are of that season so its going to happen. As far as Davids Bridal, they are a knock off store aren’t they? So of course they are going to have identical dresses to designers.

I’m trying on Da Vinci’s 50024 because I LUST after the Sottero “Adorae” and it looks remarkably the same.  LUST not love.  Ha!!  The Adorae quite frankly, is outside of our budget.  And I don’t PLAY when it comes to budget!!  LOL.  For me, I just want to look my best for my day.  And honestly, I didn’t know there were “designer” wedding gowns or who these “designers” were.  But…I’m not a “name brand” kinda girl in my “non-wedding” life (with a few exceptions) so it’s not surprising that I wouldn’t be with the wedding either. 

Adorae
