I think Jasmine’s Bridal is the best.

Dressilyme is the relatively safe and cheap option. I have used Dressilyme for my reception dress and it was alright. It didn’t look anything like the original but for the price I paid, it was well-made (had structure and boning).

I’ve bought other things from Lightinthebox (shoes/boxes etc.) and they are alright. However, the replica dresses there are more expensive (plus options are limited) and personally, I think the quality would be about the same as Dressilyme.

Where do you live? I am in Europe as well and it’s impossible to find a real designer gown for 700+ euros. I think the absolutely cheapest is 1000 euro in most stores and these are for cheaper brands like Sincerity. Maggie Sotteros are at least 1300 euros (and can easily go up to 5000 euro).

I had my dress made by Fabulous U. It just arrived, and if you look on my profile I just wrote a thread detailing my experience. In terms of quality, I do not think it rivals that of the designer gowns. However, it’s definitely a well-made dress. In terms of other formals I have owned (several proms in high school as well as a handful of times as a bridesmaid), I think my wedding dress goes on the higher end. The price was amazing and definitely fell within your budget. That being said, I don’t know what kind of dress you are looking for and don’t want to speculate for your situation.

I chose Fabulous U because I really liked that their website (at the time of my research phase) only showed dresses that they had made themselves. Jasmine’s impresses me quite a bit, and if I hadn’t chosen Fabulous U, I would have gone with them. Well, if it was within my budget. Hope that helps.

I think the Mori Lee you like isn’t too complicated for the replica companies to make (for eg. I would be more scared using them for dresses with a lot of intricate beading or dresses whose beauty stems from really amazing lace).

My friend used DHgate for a wedding dress sometime back and it was nice but REALLY didn’t look like the original and also, there was no boning of any kind. The dress was pretty enough though and luckily, she is a very slim girl so she didn’t need boning anyway!

Yes, I would agree that the consensus seems to be to go with Jasmine’s if you want to go all out and pay a little more for the best quality replica. Go with DressilyMe if you’re on a budget and are ok with the idea that the dress may not be the very best but will probably still be very nice for the price.

@PV:  I also recommend Jasmines Bridal Shop.  Do a search on the BEE and you will see lots of amazing dresses and great reviews.  They cost a bit more because it is a better result.  They also do high end replica dresses, not just the easy ones.  All dresses are custom made.
