Well 150 isn’t really that expensive so if it didn’t work out again it wouldn’t be a huge loss. I’ve heard that simple dresses are usually easier to replicate, so I think your chances of success are a bit greater with this dress… especially if it’s one that they have done before. If this doesn’t work out will you have enough time to purchase another dress?? That would be my biggest concern.

I think you’re making a big gamble. I don’t know when you’re getting married but if this second dress doesn’t make you happy then will you have to buy a 3rd? I think you’re better off searching for a used dress- one that is your style and won’t require expensive alterations. Good luck!

Wow, only 150 for that, huh?  Well, if the reviews are 50/50 – then that’s your shot of having a good chance of getting that dress to your liking.  That means you have a 50/50 shot of losing out on 150.  And that will be 300 (so far) out of a budget that could’ve been created for a dress bought here.  (hope that didn’t come across rude – I’m trying to be factual, not opinioniated Cool )

So, those are the options that need to be weighed out.  If you feel good about all of it – and the end result will make you beyond happy (that’s worth all the effort you’ve put into finding the perfect dress) – then its a definite.  🙂

Its your day, do what makes you happy!

You have already spent money on one dress and it didn’t turn out the way you wanted it to. I would not chance it again. The dress you posted should be pretty easy to make. I suggest finding a seamstress in your area and ask her to make it for you. You will save yourself a lot of headache, tears, and money, if you do. JMHO

why not go to davids bridal they have very reasonable prices and even have some gowns for the same price that you are willing to pay for your replica.  I would not make the same mistake twice

Depends – where are you buying from? I got my dress from China and was 100% happy with it!

Some replica sellers have much higher satisfaction ratings than others. I researched and found one with thousands (yes, thousands) of positive reviews, and felt pretty safe about it.

I have a loooong post that I wrote about it back when I bought my dress, if you PM me I can find the link for you.
