I haven’t personally gotten a replica dress, but I’ve noticed on bees’ dresses where the original has heavy beading, the copy ends up having really light beading with a sewn silver thread design instead. Have you thought about having it made without and adding a sash?

I would go with a sash, then. I’ve never seen a replica pic with beading like that. They all go the cheaper route to save you the cost. ๐Ÿ˜‰ In My Humble Opinion the replica makers can’t do anything too fancy or complicated, and the simple replicas always turn out better.

What is your dress budget? The replicas are usually very reasonable – like $200. You could always email them with your questions. I hear dressilyme is very good about contact and letting their customers know whether or not something is doable. If they say they could do something similar, you could always purchase it and not wear it if you don’t like it, or have 1 dress for the ceremony and 1 for the reception.

Buying a used dress and adding a sash is also a really good idea. ๐Ÿ™‚

You’ll find something! ๐Ÿ™‚ My dress was under $500. If I’d had the time, I would have ordered through Church Street Bridal. Here’s the ad. They have high end sample dresses anywhere from $300-$700 and I believe the OP said they will ship.
