Hi Ya. The base price for the dress was $278. With custom sizing and shipping, it was $330. I paid more than that though because I wanted a longer train. (in hindsight, it’s too long, lol)

Oh yeah, here’s the Allure 8862 on the hanger at a bridal shop. See how this compares if you’d like:

@sue sue:  No problem. I originally spoke with Paris; I don’t know why she said they haven’t made the dress before! 

Pricing- does the price quoted include custom measurements? 

If you’re planning on ordering, keep in mind that they go on holiday for almost a month in a couple of weeks.

 

 Good luck with whatever you decide!! Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any other questions about my experience or dress.

@sue sue:  No problem, anytime.

Custom measurements= custom sizing to your body. In other words, you would send them your measurements and they make the dress according to that so there’s minimal alterations.

Hello,

I started a thread about knock off or replica dresses on this site. The two that I delt with were Miss Fish Bridal and Fabulous U. I’m not trying to deter you from dressily me but here is my experience with Fabulous U, I hope it helps:

What I really want to express to you all is how amazing amd beautiful and INCREDABLE my fress from Fabulous U turned out. The tone of the evening was “Old Hollywood Glam” and being a plus sized woman I searched and searched for a gown that not only fit my curves but also my budget. As I stated in previous posts, I went to Miss Fish Bridal first before hearing about Tony. It came, it was nice but I had to have it altered AND I had to have an appliqué made because they used lace and cheap beading (it wasn’t cute). It was a bit more WORK and MONEY then had expected bt it was great non the less. I only had the bodice appliqué made because of the time constraint. I am still having the neck applique done so chat I can cut the train off and have it as an evening gown.

FABULOUS U!! Tony and his “Fab Group” were able to construct a high quality custom gown that was tailored to fit my body, under my original gown budget. I took 2 dresses and put them together to make what I called simple eloquence for my day and it was just…….. perfect. What I loved most was that the only thing I had to do was get the dress steamed/pressed. The fit was as if I had gone to a store and had it altered perfectly. Below are the links to my pictures, if ANYONE is planning a wedding or formal event PLEASE speak with Tony and then shop around and you will see just how budget friendly GREAT QUALITY can be. If I had to do it all over, I would have gotten both gowns form Tony and Fabulous U in the first place.

If I said it 1000 times, I wouldn’t be able to say Thank you enough to Fabulous U for making me feel beautiful on my wedding day. His patience, input, and attention to detail was exactly what I needed to achieve the look I wanted.

@mobiusbox:  I did ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s beautiful. It does need to be altered as it’s quite big around the bust and torso, but the quality of the work is really impressive.

This is the dress I ordered.

My dress fresh from the box.

I did order custom measurements but I didn’t get them taken professionally which could account for how big the dress is. It has at least three layers of fabric in the bodice, with boning and cups and bra support sewn in. I’m really pleased with it – I got the dress and postage to Australia for around $300.
