Sites like DressilyMe, Jasmine’s Bridal, etc. make copies.

Most, if not all of those dress shops online are making replicas and selling them at a significantly lower price.  They typically originate in China and use less quality materials and equpment to create these dresses. I think you got a great deal, and don’t overthink the price.

They are most likely knock-offs, so don’t worry!  That said, I did find my dress for 25% less at another Watter’s authorized retailer (Pearl’s Place) and the shop I purchased ultimately agreed to match the price even though I’d already placed the order and given the deposit, so I definitely know how you feel!!!

A lot of the online ones are replicas.  If it seems too good to be true, it probably is!  I’m willing to bet that you have a real one from the designer and that the others are used or knock offs.  If you wanted to be sure, you could call the designers customer service to ask about the suggested price of that gown or check out some of the preowned wedding dress websites.  Usually they list the original price so you could get an idea of the ballpark price of that gown or at least for that designer.  I wouldn’t worry though.  I would be cautious of the online gowns and think that you did the right thing by getting one at a reputable boutique.

Like others have said, the cheap ones are most likely replicas.  Or pre-owned dresses.

@WaitingweddingBE: Don’t worry, you probably haven’t been ripped off. The ones online will either be used or fake (as most have said). 

Want to show us the dress? 😀

You look absolutely gorgeous. Really stunning!

Actually you look tiny! What size are you (if it’s not rude to ask)?
