That dress looks absolutely stunning on you! Thanks for sharing!!
Ok, I ordered a dress from babyonline on Darling Husband gate. I haven’t recieved it, but I got pictures today.
Here is the inspiration dress:
Here are the pictures I was sent today:
Sorry for the giant photos!!
Pros: Skirt looks AWESOME. Material looks good.
Problems: Dress is too big. I’m a street size 2/4, and this looks probably 2 sizes too big. It also seems to completely lack a waist. Flower is gigantic and more centered than I would like.
I knew it would need some adjustments, though, so I’m not unhappy with it, but it will need fixed.
So, question, bees: What should I have the dressmaker do to fix these problems before i ok the shipment? Or should I just ship as is and let them fix it here?
I finally read through y’all posted here, and I wanner say, I learned a lot! My wedding dress is in the air as I’m struggling to buy from the bridal stores or China knock-off sites. I’m glad to see many of brides here were happy with the results of knock-off dresses, and saved a ton! I bought my Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses from Outerinner.com, and I don’t know you guys know it or not,Now I’m anxious for its arrival! If the dresses could turn out in a good way, then I’ll def go with a knock-off wedding dress to save the money for my honeymoon!
* fingers crossed *
Personal photos! Dress needs some alterations, especially in the bodice, but I’m happy.
my wedding dress is actually a knock-off as well. I ordered it off ebay and I was incredibly nervous about ordering it online. However, it arrived quickly and it is BEAUTIFUL. I love it so much and the real kicker is it was only $128. I’m so happy with my purchase!
It looks very similar to this:
@BettyKnocker: Theft is theft. When you steal, it isn’t OK as long as the person you’re stealing from won’t go out of business because of it. You are stealing the intellectualy property of another person/company, regardless of whether it’s an indie designer on Etsy or Maggie Sottero, Inc., LLC, TM, .com. Not only is it unethical, it’s illegal. Having a custom dress made locally by another designer, with inspiration from certain components of different dresses is a different story. Buying a “replica” of something from someone who does not have permission to replicate anything, and does a piss poor job of it to boot, is entirely different.
These wedding dresses are beautiful! You looked so beautiful on your big day!!!!
I know some persons are very judgmental about someone “knocking off” a dress… but I use the same logic for dress designs as my food recipes (I’m a pastry chef and event caterer)…
I put hours and countless dollars and sweat (often tears) into my recipes and formulas. I am very proud of my work and take it very seriously.
A chef offers a level a quaility that years of work and experience gained, and therefore can create and dream up menus and food pairing that are wonderful and original!
A designer has the same level of skill in creating a concept and then using skill to execute the dress.
Am I mad when someone uses one of my concepts and recipes at an event?
Because people hire me for reasons they feel are important. And sometimes they don’t hire me… for reasons that are their own.
It’s not cheap to have a pastry chef design and creat your cake. And a grocery store bakery could certainly copy and create a similair cake, but its not the same. They use different ingredients and maybe different methods. If the bride is happy, that is what is important.
It is their desicion. It’s nothing against me. Capitalism market =)
But not every chef feels as I do, so ultimately… I guess its a person by person deal.
