I haven’t heard many things about Etsy sellers in particular but this thread seems to have some customers that aren’t too happy.

bad experience from etsy seller: your fairytale wedding/Angles Bridal

So I would keep this in mind of who to not use.

As far as other experiences you can read about mine if you’d like.

Lately I have seen some very good replica dresses on the boards. However, one of the things that make a designer dress special is the quality of fabric. You will just not get that with a replica. You might be better off with powerbride, recycledbride, preownedweddingdresses, yourdreamdress, ledressboutique,etc. Also check out [email protected]’s post about Church Street Bridal in Lynchburg. They have GREAT prices on designer samples.

As long as you have realistic expectations, you may end up being really happy with it.  I think a lot of girls get replicas thinking that the price tag of a designer dress is ONLY because of the designer, but a lot of it is the material.  You WILL notice a difference in the way polyester organza feels and flows as opposed to silk organza, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you won’t be thrilled.  I would go around to a few stores and feel the different fabrics first.
