What’s everyone’s take on replica dresses? I love love LOVE Paloma Blanca’s styles but I’m still grappling with the idea of spending a few thousand on a dress I’ll wear once, and even though it’s becoming a more popular trend, I don’t think I could bear to rent a dress. I did a google search and a few hits came up for places that make replicas and it made me think…
Anyone on here have a replica made? How did it turn out?

I think it’s safer to buy a used (or rent) a true Paloma dress, rather than going the replica avenue. The quality of the silks and satins and their wonderful colours are very hard to replicate in my opinion. I wore a Paloma Blanca dress on my wedding and there is such finesse to the way these dresses are made from choice of fabric, colour to cut and seams.
I would definitely look into a gently-worn Paloma…

Hi! I wore a Paloma Blanca 3860 and am thinking about selling. Mine is a size 4. Let me know if you are interested and I’ll send you photos.

I agree with the second poster….I have a Paloma dress and I can’t explain it but the way they make their dresses are just totally diff from the other ones I tried on. I bought the sample that the store had and got it for under $700…maybe you could look into that?

I haven’t heard of this store before so I don’t know for sure how legit it is, although it has a street address in CA, but maybe this sale can help you? (Don’t forget to ask for an additional discount if you buy it straight away, never hurts to try).

@Strawberrybaby – thanks for the offer! I’m in love with style 3964 but also just found a special place in my heart for 3858…stapless vs delicate lace straps…ahhh!!! I can’t decide!
@wellykiwi – I’ll definitely check out that site. thanks for the tip!
I haven’t gone to try anything on yet and was planning to wait until January but the more I look online (and on here!) the more I just want to go! I did find some comparable dresses on DB website that are a lot less expensive and beautiful so I may go that route…oh the possibilities
