    It’s hard to see what the third dress looks like since the pic is from the side. I would wait to try it on if you can before you have to decide wether or not to get a new one.

    I have to be honest and say that I don’t love the knock off. I I were you I would get a simple strapless A-line from Davids bridal or similar (in the sale even) and then get a lace bolero/to and  sash from Etsy or eBay. I think that way you can still achieve the look you want within a reasonable budget. I think it’s a really cool and different look though! I think it will be amazing!

    I agree with PPs – you can’t really tell without seeing you in it.  How it looks right now, it doesn’t do much for me.  Sorry!

    The lace on the knockoff is ALL wrong. It’s thick and chunky, whereas the original is light and delicate. I’m kind of a lace snob, and chances are it is also scratchy lace.

    Sorry, but I do NOT like how the knockoff turned out one bit. It looks poorly put together. There is a difference between “cheap” as in not paying an arm and a leg for something and something looking “cheap”. Have to say it’s the latter.

    Sorry, just being honest.

    I agree. Get a DB dress and add a black sash and someone could even add the lace on top and the sleeves

    Ummmm…The knockoff looks “less expensive” as a PP said.  That lace just looks “off.”. You are beautiful and deserve a beautiful dress, so I’d definitely keep looking!
