Don’t do it.  They spam here all the time.  They have created tons of accounts to post fake reviews.  All I’ve heard from the few REAL brides is that their dresses are poor quality and look nothing like the original.

I’d recommend checking out ebay for last year’s model dresses (still beautiful, just “out of season”) or second hand dress sites like preownedweddingdresses.com or oncewed.com or others.  I got my dress on ebay, I made sure it was bigger than I am so that it could be tailored down.  Or you could just go to Macy’s or Dillard’s and get one of their white prom dresses.  I saw some really beautiful prom dresses that would have been great for a wedding.

Think outside the box, don’t get swept up in labels.  You don’t have to spend a fortune on your wedding dress for it to be beautiful!

I’m not sure what your budget is, or what your dream dress is, but I am selling a nice dress for a good price so I thought I’d throw it out there!

Save yourself the trouble of going through the insane ordeal I am going through ladies. Despite what I had read I ordered one of my bridesmaid dresses from this site. I planned to order 8 of them but I wanted to make sure the dress was okay before ordering for all my maids. I am glad I did because what I got was a huge mess. I figured the simple black replica of Alfred Angelo 7109 would be fine, boy was I wrong. And now after 11 emails all they are offering me is 30.00 I paid 120.00

Instead of going on about the incompetence of whoever I am dealing with I will post pictures of the dress that is glued together (yes fabric glued) and already falling apart. Did I mention it came with hair all over it like it had previously been a dog bed and smelled like cigarettes?

@cyndistar3: I feel the same way girl…I  see the post about the dress disaster but we need to kno who made the dress so that noone else orders from there. Yeah..I’ve heard some bad stories also, but I’ve also heard about so georgeous dresses. One Bee has a photo of her ebay replica dress and I love it! I believe the email was [email protected]. Post head line was something like having dress make instead of buying. I’d like to get the overall picture rather than one or two stories. I wish all BEES would tell their replica stories..but most don’t want anyone to know they’re knock-offs.

I found my Maggie Sottero Filippa brand new on Ebay for $400.  Not sure what your price range is but if you’ve tried dresses on and know the styles/designers that you like, Ebay is another option.  The sizing is the hard part (making sure you get the right size) but if you’ve tried other gowns on and are generally the same size, then it may work for you (it did for me…even though my dress is a little too small, it just motivates me to lose that extra 5 pounds).  🙂
