    I personally wouldn’t order from anyone that didn’t show pictures of their actual work.  This picture is ripped off the website of the Mori Lee Julietta line.  Now if the manufacturer could show their version of this dress, then maybe.  But until then, no way.

    What’s your budget?  Honestly this Mori Lee dress can be found around $600 brand new.  (here’s a link to it on best bridal prices  http://www.bestbridalprices.com/mori-lee-julietta-wedding-dresses-style-3092-p-75427.html?cPath=997&designers=108)   I’d spend the additional $450 just to get the real deal over risking a fake.

    I vite NO, but not for the reasons you stated. Ordering a dress online is fine (I ordered mine online from J. Crew for example, and David’s Bridal has online ordering). But, if they can’t provide pics of what their replica of this dress looks like, i’d keep looing. As the PP said, the dress from the “real” designer is actually very inexpensive by bridal standards.

    I have heard great things from Jasmines Bridal Shop. Their Facebook page shows tons of real dresses they have done.

    @lionskitty:  I still wouldn’t do it.  You can get a dress at Davids Bridal for $99 that you can try on, feel the fabric, see the dress on you, etc.

    This one’s $199 at DB:

    Go with Jasmines, there are a ton of bees here who have real photos of the work.  They send you updated pictures throughout the process and it is really awesome quality work.  I am trying to go to more dress shops (DB didn’t have any of the sale dresses I wanted in stock today) this week then may be ordering from Jasmines.

     

    A bee even went to the factory in China and there is a post about that!

    I just ordered a dress from Shine Cai for my beach wedding this month.  I did the personalized measurements and the dress is absoutely beautiful!!! It turned out perfect! I would definitely recommend… It even has a built in bra.  It couldn’t ask for a better fitting dress.!
