I am going through the same dilemia now! i bought a dress and was completely underwhelmed when it came in :o( I was in LOVE with the Margot Dress by Maggie Sottero but i’m not a huge fan of taffeta and it didn’t come in an ivory (just white, diamond white, and french vanilla which is like yellow gold). After trying on a bagillion gowns I kept saying “i like the Margot more”, but couldn’t get past the color and material issue so I decided to look into having the dress made in an ivory satin. My first stop was local dressmakers and I about died when I got their quotes: anywhere from $2500 to $4500, keep in mind the original Maggie only costs $1400! So my next round of research led me to Etsy. I knew I didn’t want to go the China route because I’ve heard wayyy too many horror stories, but some bees reccomended I check on sellers CiCi Bridal & Fairytale Weddings on etsy. Both companies quoted me around $900. I was a bit nervous and I’m still deciding what to do but I think I’ve ultimately decided to go with CiCi Bridal, as the dresses on her website look pretty amazing and I have yet to find a bad review of her gowns. It also put me at ease to know that she actually has a brick and morter physical shop that you can visit and try on their gowns, see their quality, etc.

I would highly highly recommend checking her out on etsy. :o) Hope that helps
