Yeah, I just got a response and they told me they’re very busy right now.
They also said they wont’ be able to answer my next e-mail until October 7 since they’re on a National Holiday October 1 to October 6.

@CooKiYum: I really hope they agree to send you pictures because is very stressing this situation, I cannot stop thinking that one single detail can ruin my perspective of the dress 🙁
Thank you, I asked in another post and yes it seems that this really is their bussy session, I’m a bit sad and regreting having my order posted at this time.
I’m crossing my fingers for you too

DO NOT DO IT! You are supporting illegal activity.
These factories that do this are ripping off from people who work to create these dresses. I can tell you from the otherside, that making these dresses absolutely perfect takes months of work.
By purchasing through an authorized distributer of the Mori Lee, i promise you will get the product you want. Quality fabrics, and construction. I’ve seen many many an internet dress “copy” come in wack. Plus you then will need to spend upwards of $100-150 on the right foundations to get the look you want. i know the mori lee dresses require a bra, but not petticoats. Not to mention, if I was an alterationist I wouldnt want to handle any of these counterfit dresses I’ve seen. No seam allowances, poorly sewn beading, cheap over bleached lace (they use fabrics and laces etc that designers have rejected because they are faulty)
Find a way to fit it in your budget, or take the photo to David’s and find one within your budget. Ask the boutique to try to help you fit it within your budget. Usually a store can cut alterations cost, or throw in the veil for free to help. Search for a used one? start calling stores and find a sample you can purchase off the rack. Find a trunk show so you can get a discount. Do whatever it takes but don’t support conterfit factories.
Also consider this, who will be steaming/pressing your gown when it comes in before alterations? this is usually included when you purchase your dress with a reputable bridal boutique. Most boutiques I work with charge $50-75 to steam a dress not purchased through them….

@MrsDToBe2014: Gag me.
A COUNTERFEIT item is an item that is represented as BEING the original item, but is not.
These dresses do not have a mori lee label. This does not even have the same design details.
Please stop with the unnecessary bullshit. It is ordering an “inspired” dress from an overseas manufacturer, and there’s nothing wrong with it.
And it’s meanspirited to make a bride on the bee feel badly about her dress, especially to further your own agenda.

@MrsDToBe2014: I don’t think this is the right thread for that conversation. As the OP has already invested in it and is 100% okay with it, as it’s not an illegal operation. The are other threads you can find to debate this situation but it’s not fair to turn this OPs thread

@MrsDToBe2014: well… thank you for your opinion but I don think I’m doing anything wrong, maybe you dont know what to be a bride on a budget really means I cant spend thousands not even many hundreds in a dress, so for me this alternative is the best one in the world.
+1 this exactly what I think
In other news I wrote to Amy (seller correspondant from dressilyme) to see how was everything, she said my dress is still on production 😀 2 more weeks ladiesssss

@Amaialoca: that dress is stunning!!!! I’m actually also planning to order one of Mori Lee replica from Dressilyme (the 1963) but haven’t gotten the courage to do so.
About the “no pic because we’re busy” reply, I was told the same thing too from Dressilyme (I think it was Jenny who e-mailed me) when I convo’d them about another dress I was planning to get. After that, I told them I MUST see the dress before it being shipped, otherwise I won’t feel confident on ordering. They finally agreed on sending pics BUT the turn around time will be pushed back to 40-50 days. I didn’t end up ordering that dress anyway but hopefully they will still honor the promise when I finally do so.
I dunno if this info helps or not since you already made the payment, but that was what happened when I kind of threathened them a little lol (ok maybe not) but you know what I mean?
Anyway, good luck and please keep us updated. I’d love to see the end result 🙂

I took the plunge and ordered from Dessilyme. I had a special request to make the belt and cascading flowers in black. I didn’t get any pics of the process but just received the dress 3 weeks after I ordered it. I was super nervous, having never tried on the dress and putting my trust of my day in the hands of someone overseas! I’m so glad I did. The dress arrived and to be honest I stared at the package for several hours before I opened it! Lol It turned out fantastic!!
