Ok, details aside, my original dress is ruined and we don’t have any room in the budget for a new dress. Long story short (the details are way to painful to relive – I am not a drama girl, but it just angers me to think about it!) I need an Allure C-157 or a CHEAP replica or knockoff (I’m talking like $200 or less – I know – hard to work with – this is why I need your help!!). I have scoured Craigslist, EBay, and all kinds of Google searches, with little luck. If you have this dress or know of a designer that makes a similar cheaper dress, please let me know!! I’ll even buy one from China if you can find it!
Edit: Size 10 or 12 if possible. Thanks!

When I was looking for a dress I wanted, I found this bridal store on ebay,
I saw they had a dress from the same designer so I e-mailed and asked if they could get the dress I wanted and if they could sell it and ship it to me. They wrote back and it was very broken english but they said they could sell me the dress for $500 with free shipping. (The dress I wanted costs around $1500) You can e-mail them and see if they can find you the dress and sell it for $200. Because their english was bad, I did e-mail a couple of people who left reviews for them and asked if the dress was a knock-off and how did they like doing business with them, and everything they said was good, that it wasn’t a cheap dress etc. I hope this helps

This dress was listed in the above board. It is a similar look. It says it is $600, but maybe you could find it used for cheaper.

Here are two links to previous threads about bees who have had experience with Chinese dressmakers. It looks like Jeff Liu’s ebay store, April Bridals is the most reputable. I may end up going this route myself. If you have any luck with it, let us know! Hope your dress emergency is resolved shortly!

I am kind of in the same situation, don’t have a dress yet for my wedding (05/2011) and was looking into the websites that sell knockoffs or replica of bridal gowns. Did you purchase your dress from any of the websites listed in this blog, and if so what was your experience? Is the dress the same as the designers?
