Hi Bees –
So I saw a dress I absolutely loved – the Winnie Couture Nyla 9130 – on a show this weekend. I looked it up online and saw it on a website for a ridiculously discounted price. It’s $219!
From what I can tell, this is the ACTUAL dress and not an immitation. Can you guys shed any light as to why it’s so cheap? I feel like it’s too good to be true, which almost always means it is.
Any help would be great, thanks!!

Meaning it’s an immitation dress? Oh well, thank you! I think it’s worth the full price around here, it’s so beautiful. But I figured I’d check with you guys first!

@sunkissed19: not necesssarily? Lots of the wedding dresses are made in China. Have you googled them for reviews?

Some of the far east dress makers make FANTASTIC *similar* dresses. Lots of bees have ordered from chinese dress makers with (mostly) overjoyed reviews. It might be worth it!

@sealevels: Thanks – I havent been able to find reviews- other websites with similar domains come up when I look.
I won’t write it off just yet.

@Mrs Canuck: Second this. Use a reputable company that the bees have experience with and recommend.

@sunkissed19: Jasmines Bridal Shop has the best reviews and makes the most incredible dresses. They custom make so if you want any changes to the original, they can do that also. The craftsmanship is amazing. do a search.

thanks for all the suggestions. i’m still early in the process so I’ll have time to think about it and shop around – but I had never thought of buying a custom made or replica until now. after seeing some forums, it’s great to see how many bees have had good experiences!

Your dress is very beautiful and a very simple design I wouldn’t trust a website that you cannot see reviews from like the other bee’s said maybe you should approach the most popular custom dress company’s like jasmine bridal shop or fabulous u . even if you are not sure which route to take you can still ask for a quote and look at their work and see what else is offered , not that I don’t trust that website … I don’t trust it lol …there is One word to sum it up … Research ,research , reaserch …! 🙂 good luck

@sunkissed19: Is it a sample? Those are usually highly discounted . I ordered a sample from an online site and was authentic and paid about 80% less than the original price.
