Jasmine Bridals. They seem to do excellent work. Go for the upgrade

I didn’t buy a replica, but spent plenty of time researching when I thought I would. I would look into these companies, they have great feedback:

Milly Bridal

Jasmine’s Bridal

Dressilyme

Landy Bridal

 

Good luck!!

I just saw some gorgeous pictures of a Lazaro replica done from Jasmine’s Bridals. It actually made me have a tinge of dress regret!

I posted in another replica thread as well, but am very passionate about this issue.

The replica dresses are cheaper, because they did not need to go through the process of designing the dress, making prototypes, shopping for the right fabric, the trials and errors of getting things just they way they envision it. All of this has value.

The original designer of the dress deserves to profit from the work that went into coming up with the design. As a designer in a totally different field, who has had my designs ripped off, this bothers the hell out of me, and I wish people would stop undercutting the designers.

Buying replica dresses is only perpetuating the problem, as designers now must charge more for the originals as they are losing sales to the knock-offs and it makes the dresses more out of reach for the budget brides, driving them to replicas. Please think of this before feeding into this viscious cycle!!!!!

I agree with@rachgirl82.

I don’t like Jeff Liu because he completely screwed me and the dress was completely unusable. It was the most horrid thing I have ever seen in my life.

It looked like sheer cardboard.

You can always skim my profile for that review and look at the pics in the end.

Dressilyme did an excellent job for me and you can look for those 2 reviews as well.

As far as others. The ones that Rachgirl82 said are excellent and I think they are the most consistent. 

Good luck with your choice.

@USAandKSA:

I didn’t know that about Milly! Thanks for the heads up.

Definetly don’t do Jeff Liu. Nightmare waiting to happen.

I am interested in seeing more from Shades of pale and duosheng. So far I know duosheng is doing well with customers.

Thanks for the variety!

@adw2c: Google Milly reviews and you will find the bad ones, and Landy is worse. It wouldn’t be so bad if they weren’t so expensive but some of their dresses are in the $800 range now! And I saw a review that said she received the dress and it had a shoe print on it and was long enough for an NBA player lol. If I were going to suggest another company that I hadn’t suggested before it would be either Dressilyme or Jasmine’s haven’t seen any bad reviews on either of them at all and I saw a dressilyme review that said she got a dress for a TTD session and afterwords had the dress drycleaned and it was in perfect condition. Now thats a well made dress.

@USAandKSA:

Well then I wil scratch Millys off my list. I only can recommend what I have really used anyways. I can only suggest Dressilyme from personal experience and I am glad to know they still have a good reputation.

I am also happy to hear about Shades of Pale. Good to have more beautiful gown options.

@adw2c: Did you see the Milly and Landy reviews. Both of those sellers use to be a really safe bet but now…. maybe one of both of them has started using a different factory that is not as good.
