    Jeff Lui is NOT a wholesaler. He makes knock off dresses.

    If it’s $800 and the dress you LOVE, I would spend the $800 and have total peace of mind that it’s the dress of your dreams.

    If you can afford the real thing, I say get the real one from the bridal salon.  I have heard a lot of horror stories from brides who got a replica.  Sometimes they turn out great, but a lot of the time they don’t, and if you have the money to spend on the real thing I wouldn’t want to take that chance.

    I didn’t mean to sound snarky lol. I just wanted to make sure you knew

    I’d get the original or try to get it used.

    I would get the one from the bridal shop. I personally do not trust replica makers

    I bought a replica dress (well, customized) but it will not be the same dress you tried on in the store.  If the dress you tried on is the dress you want, then that’s the best you should buy.

    I agree with @SoontobeMrsA – try and find it used! There might even be a sample that they could sell for cheap. I would exhaust all options before getting a knock off.

    Don’t buy a knock-off, it will most probably become a disappointment. Try to find a preowned dress instead or check out legit online shops, they often sell the dresses less expensive than a bridal salon.
