Hello lovely ladies!
So I’ve taken the plunge and ordered my knock off gowns – for myself & the BM’s.
Having had a bit of a look around online, I of course found my dream dress – The Maggie Sottero Ameli – however I knew it would be well over budget having allready tried on a few maggies in stores locally (all $1000+++).
So I started looking online for options & I found Miss Fish to have the best reviews (some good, some bad but fairly consistant nonetheless) and decided to order from there.I have been emailing back and fourth with the customer service team who have been, to be honest, very helpful! (Kinda suprised to be honest – with my 101 questions lol) for about the last 4 weeks confirming details on shipping, what they can and cant alter etc.Placed the order today – All up it was a little under $700 AUD for 4 dresses, all custom sized and shipped to Australia.

I added removable straps to my dress, and asked for the large flower taken off.
And the BM’s: http://www.missfishbridalonline.com/prod-3147.html
These in an Orange.
As soon as I have photos when they arrive I will be sure to post – admittedly its still probably 2-3 months away but they will come! That and a good review of the quality also.

Well Ive just had an email from the dress makers, and all 4 dresses will be completed by the end of this week. So pretty much spot on 45 days from ordering (as quoted on the website).
Email replies have been prompt and consistant every time – so far I’m still really happy with how everything is going.
Should have preview photos of the completed dresses before they mail them out. Can’t wait to share.
As of yesterday (4th Dec) it marks 5 months untill the wedding!

@owlamor: i cannot wait to hear what happens. I love your dress and really like your Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses (I will be a Bridesmaid or Best Man for the first time next year so Bridesmaid or Best Man stuff is heavy on my mind :D)

Well within 10 mins of typing my last post a lovely delivery man popped up at my front door. Lo and behold, it was my dresses. The whole lot were packed in an A3 size bag, weighing almost 5kgs. They were only shipped on Thursday – so you can imagine my suprise, but I am super happy!
Each dress was individually bagged inside the package, and inside out. As I had ordered custom sizes for each of my Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, the measurements were written on the individual bags, as well as attached to an easilly removable fabric tag inside the dresses.
I am very happy with the quality, and considering the money I saved, even if they had been horrible it wasn’t too great a loss. While my dress is not exactly like the “designer original” Im so pleased with how it came out. The beading and detail is not over the top, and has been completed well. I would have no issues reccomending Miss Fish Bridal to anyone who is looking for a cheaper alternative to designer / replica dresses.
And without further adu, some photos 🙂
The pleats are hanging a little weird as it was just unpacked. Could do with a good steam.
I was worried, being as busty as I am, that the detail under the boobs wouldnt sit right, but I was wrong! I’m not totally laced in here either. Fit is practically perfect.
The Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses. Colour is perfect!
Details on the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, the beading is all fairly well secured, and the top half is boned as well!
Sorry for the photo spam!
