I think they did a very nice job, it looks really close to the original.  Sometimes replicas don’t turn out quite right so I was holding my breath a little scrolling through your pics.  But, honestly, I think it looks great as is, especially the front.  The only thing I don’t like as much is the long “bow” thing hanging down on the corset back, I wonder if that could be shortened a little,  but otherwise it looks very pretty.

Yea, you’re right about the sequins. When can you try it on? You’ll have a better idea on what you do or don’t like once you do try it on. I think it’s lovely overall.

I think it’s beautiful! To me, if the camera is picking up little sparkles, you’ve got just the right amount of glitz. I wouldn’t change a thing. If you go trying to take off some sequins, you’ll lose that lovely sparkle, and you may end up pulling off other beads as well, and making a big mess. I’d leave it! They did an awesome job! It’s a gorgeous, stunning dress.

Truthfully, they look pretty darn close to me! Part of the problem might be that the lighting is SO different in each set of pictures that it’s really hard to get a good look at the detail work. I think you’ll feel much better once you have it on ๐Ÿ™‚

They look like the same dress to me.  I think this falls into the category that no one else will notice.  Of course if you don’t feel great in your dress, you will feel off for the day.  But maybe if you tell yourself that no one knows the difference, you will relax and enjoy your day without dress stress.  I rarely remember many details of a dress after a wedding, other than the general (I would remember yours was strapless with a beaded bodice, but that’s it).

The only thing i noticed is that the replica looks like a pretty dead on white, whereas the dress in the photo looks more “diamond white” (a light ivory).

 

but it’s very pretty!

Yeah the bow/extra string of the corset gets tucked inside the dress and I think you can’t see hte sparkles closer to the bottom of the bodice bc the way the light hits it. That’s also really important–I really think the lighting stinks in these pictures and doesn’t represent the dress properly. 

 

Despite all that, it’s a gorgeous replica and I think you will look beautiful in it ๐Ÿ™‚ Can’t wait!! It’s getting closeeeee

It could be the lighting too though.

See how other dresses behind it look blue? I bet those are the true whites.

I think it might be the lighting, but I also wonder if the neckline is less deep on yours?  It might be the mannequin versus the model, but the shape of the sweetheart looks a little less pronounced on yours, I think.
