I think that the knockoffs never look good – especially those parts which are not just plain fabric, but embellishments, lace, or something like this. I’m not even sure they would get the airy look of the skirt right. Maybe there is a similar dress from Vera Wang in your budget in the David’s Bridal All White collection?

I do not think the bottom would be “perfect” I think it would look cheap and the flowers on the bodice will also look very cheap. Find a simplier design.

Why not keep an eye on the pre-owned sites the high end consignment stores (you can even tell them what you are looking for and they’ll contact you if they get it)?

Some to watch: Le Dress in Atlanta, Vows in Boston, Fabulous Frocks in Charleston, and White in Chicago.

@vmec:lol…i love your honesty…im sure some poeple get offended by it…but it cracks me up!!


OP, I think that it would be very hard to recreate…sadly! As PP said…try to go with a DB style…maybe dye it?

This dress is all kinds of complicated, and I honestly think a replica would disappoint you. 

That being said, there’s a couple of dresses out there already being made that have similar properties for MUCH LESS.

This is $199 from Lightinthebox  http://www.lightinthebox.com/Sheath–Column-V-neck-Floor-length-Tulle-Organza-Satin-Wedding-Dress_p176144.html

And this for $449  http://www.lightinthebox.com/A-line-Princess-Sweetheart-Strapless-Floor-length-Organza-Satin-Wedding-Dress_p176145.html

 I realize they’re not exactly twins of what you posted, but they do have similiar features.

@soontobmrsc: LOL you’re right it does.

But I really don’t think a replica company would spend enough time or money trying to recreate that look. I don’t think the draping of the fabric is as easy as you might think it is… and the replica will probably end up draped weird or too poofy, or something very different than what you want. Similarly to “pick me ups” Unfortunately.

I totally agree with vmec. This is far too intricate a dress to be replicated to a point that you would be happy with it.  It’s sad, I know! But, better safe than sorry…

@natalila: Not all knockoffs look bad. My knockoff looks FABULOUS!!! You just have to look for the right company to do the knock off for you.

@Gingersnap: Who’s the company that you are considering? My suggestion is to choose a company that does lace very well. I’ll throw in the person that I used (IeIe Bridal) and I know that Dressilyme does lace very well.

I definitely believe that this is a difficult dress to replicate but do you just want the idea of it or do you want the exact dress?
