I wouldn’t buy from the replica site if they aren’t returning emails. I would contact Jasmine Bridals and light in the box and send them pics of the dress you want and see if they can make it for you at a reasonable price. The other thing you can do is contact a local dress maker and have them made. They look pretty simple.

I agree, even $150 is probably too much. Are you paying for the dress or are the flower girl’s parents? I was a flower girl and my dress cost $70, we went to Younkers. Maybe you could look around stores for young girls spring/summer dresses? There might be some on clearance now, even, and those would less traditional. The first dress is really cute but I agree with @secondchances:, I wouldn’t order from the replica site.

Dresses like these are VERY simple to make and super CHEAP, which is my favorite part…a well trained monkey could make it…If you’re shy, Why not contact a fashion student, and have them make you something as similar as they can? The only thing I would caution you on is to make sure you wait until the wedding is “right around the corner,” Your flower girl could grow like crazy between now and your wedding…best of luck to ya!

Wow that first dress is adorable! However, I would be afraid to order from them also. I ordered from Prettyflowergirl website. They seem to have very resonable prices. Except they do charge 20% restocking fee for a return. Good luck hearing from those other websites!

Ditto with the recommendation to have it sewn. Any dressmaker or anyone who has a decent command of sewing could do that dress for you.

@BlushingMonk: Have you looked around at department stores? They may have some really cute dresses without the price.

 Start with the tailor you know.

Check the yellow page listings.

 Ask the bridal salons if they know someone who likes to make flower girls’ dresses.

 This is a simple sheath pattern, scoop neck, short sleeve, lace over silk- You can save some money by doing lace over polyester which would also make it easier to clean.

 “Irremovable” means it is not a separate piece like most sashes.

You may or may not be able to remove the sash. The sash is obviously sewn in- it depends on how. If it is just sewn into the seam, over top of the boodice fabric, it can be opened up and the sash removed.

If it is inserted between the lace fabric of the bodice and the lace fabric of the skirt, and there is no lace fabric undermeath the sash, you won’t be able to remove the sash.

Can you email them and ask?
