    First of all welcome to the hive.

    I think the dress looks beautiful and really similar to the original. If you can get it such reasonably priced and it looks just as good in real life as the picture above then GREAT FIND!

    I would be weary of buying a knockoff like that…. if you browze through posts about dresses like that, there have been some pretty bad experiences in the hive.

    I think the fabric looks much cheaper.  I prefer the quality of Maggie Sottero.  I’m also not a fan of buying knockoffs though.

    I think it looks like a nice dress but I can definitely see differences between it and the original dress.  The biggest differences I notice are the beading on the bust and also the fabric of the dress.

    I think it looks very close and beautiful. I am also skeptical about your authenticity as a bride. Mainly because you told us you hope WE have the most beautiful day of our lives and most 1st posts aren’t that detailed about a replica. Sounds more like a sales pitch.

    At any rate whether you work or the company or not its a beautiful dress and at least your company shows copys of the pic.

    I would say it looks close, and great for the price of 300. Not everyone can afford to spend over 1000. I just hope that it looks as great in person. I’m so wary of online shopping..I’m a person who likes to feel things. I hope there is a good contract for your sale and that if it is not what you signed up for, you have rights to protect you and your money.

    Welcome to the hive!!  You’ll find this site super useful for a lot of things.

    My issue with remakes of dresses is first and foremost — the fabric they use.

    You really want to clarify what they use or have them mail you a swatch.  You may want to/or be able to upgrade the fabric if needed.  Some of their fabrics do not look nice or photograph nice IMO.

    Best of luck to you and keep searching this site, it has sooo much info on it!

    Happy Planning!

    Fabric is off and that lace underlay looks weird. Not that similar at all to me from the bottom half.
