I could use some help… there isnt much posted on the boards about Ines Di Santo but I absolutely love the dresses but of course they are totally out of my budget… now I know I have tons of time but its not enough time to save for either of the dresses so my question for you ladies is… have any of you come across any dress remotely similar to either Cherise (#1), Sandrine (#2) or Turqoise (#3). I have searched the web and have gone into shops but nothing seems to compare and although I havent narrowed the 3 down to 1 since I love them all but I would say Turqoise is my first love then Sandrine and then Cherise but there is something about them all that prevents me from deciding… I wanted to know if any one could give me a few suggestion on similar dresses before I start seeking out the Chinese replica way and from what Ive seen on sales boards even a used dress would be too much… thanks a bunch in advance and dont forget to vote LOL

What is your budget? As I’m sure you have noticed, with Ines you are paying for that fabric that is light and poofs well at the bottom, so I think it may be hard to find another silk type dress that has that kind of movement on a budget. I loved her dresses too, but ultimately decided that it wasn’t worth spending that kind of money, esp. since her dresses are fairly plain (although gorgeous).

Have you found anything?!
I have found some websites that make replicas.. and have asked for pictures from discountdress and bigdaydress but the flower wasnt done as well, it didnt have as much poof because they use a different fabric than the taffeta.
I also love these 3 gowns, but Turquoise has been my love and dream for years now. Out of my price range too and being in MN, nothing is similar.
Help us out bees!

Mine has similarities to Turquoise; with fitted ruched dropped waist bodice, sweetheart neckline and pouf at the bottom. I actually just added flowers to the side. You could probably do somethimg similar but poof it out witrh more slips/crinolines, and add even more detailing at the hip. It was a James Clifford. Best of luck!

I am selling my cherise dress if you are interested, size 12 taken in to a size 8 with extra length (I’m 6’1 with heels). It was only worn for the ceremony, which was roughly 3 hours total. It was stunning! I almost got the Torquoise but I had two friends that wore it and they both said in pictures the dress did not show well at all since the big flower is at the bottom and not in a lot of pictures. That’s why I went with Cherise.
