I really love this dress! I don’t like the color of the replica though. Other than that, I think it’s a pretty darn good replica.

I love it! I even love the blush colour. I’d wear it myself. The only thing that seems wrong is that the exposed/unbeaded part of the waistband seems much bigger in yours and that bit on the original.  In that repect it doesn’t look as neat or pretty as the original. Overall though I thinki t’s gorgeous.

I think it’s pretty BUT I’d be very cautious about someone copying it. Obviously the price factors into the quality/material/workmanship. Read up on the company that will be making the dress before you decide.

I don’t think the replica looks anything like the original, the original is beautiful, and while the replica is pretty on it’s own, it doesn’t look anything close to the beauty of the original.

I personally love this look! I love Jenny Packham, Claire Pettiebone ect. Its so elegent. I think sheath dresses are way more classic than mermaids ect. I wish I had a sheeth body!

I really don’t like it, it LOOKS like a knockoff, and that isn’t good. Especially the bodice. Super cheap looking. I’ve seen some very successful replicas on this site, I would keep looking.

I think its beautiful in its own way and very unique. I can’t see myself wearing it, but if you love it go for it!

Honestly, I feel like only very few people can pull off this style dress. its a beautiful dress, I’ve drooled over it on Pinterest before, but the look has to fit not only a certain type of wedding, but a certain type of bride as well. You want your dress to reflect you and your style! I personally don’t think its very flattering on you, and unless you are having a 20’s/vintage style wedding, I would steal clear of it.

Chicpeas:  I think the inspiration dress is stunning, but I’m not sold on the execution of the reproduction that you tried on. Doesn’t look quite right. Good luck whatever you decide.

Chicpeas:  sorry to also be negative but I don’t think it does much for your shape.  It seems a bit boxy around the waist instead of accentuating it. Even though you should wear whatever dress you love, I also don’t think it seems to match the church/ballroom locations you’ve chosen for your wedding. It seems more appropriate for a garden or vineyard wedding in my opinion.
