This woman is a complete and total fraud! She is not making these dresses. He simply orders the cheap knockoffs from China and passing them of to make it look like she is making them. I was in contact with her while she was "making" my dress and she was telling me that she was working on it personally. I was emailed photos and the dress was completely wrong. When I told her what she did wrong she completely flipped out and cursed at me dropping f-bombs. She must have done the same thing to the company in China because next thing I know I received the unfinished dress in the mail directly from Hong Kong. I looked at the Chinese company's website and the dresses on their site were photographed in front of the same exact background as my dress. Melanie told me that the picture was taken at her shop in the states with a low quality camera because her digital camera was broken and thats why the color was off. I asked her a few times in this process if my dress was going to be made 100 percent in the US by her and she said yes.The reason I asked was because of the two negative reviews on this site. I thought that those brides must have just had a personal issue with Melanie and had to be wrong because so many of the reviews were positive. I should have known better with anyone asking for full payment before thy have even done anything. This was one of the worst experiences of my life and right before my wedding. She would send me daily emails that made less and less sense basically saying that she wasn't giving me any money back and she would "redo". But how do you redo something you never touched in the first place? She said that i could go ahead and report her because she was getting out of ths business anyway. I had to get a dress last minute from a store that was local. If you want a knockoff from China, do yourself a favor and go to them directly for $300 instead of giving this woman five times as much for the same dress. I just don't want anyone else taken advantage of especially on one of the most important days of their life.

Also, we kept in touch often thru phone and email, always able to reach her, sometimes, just to say hi! I 100000000% recommend repliccawediinggowns!!

For as long as I can remember I wanted to have a designer dress for my wedding. However, it was not until I started planning my wedding did I realize how pricey those gowns would be. I simply could not justify such an expense. While I knew that I would not be able to afford the dress of my dreams, I did not want to substitute my dreams because they did not match the size of my pocket. This is why I started researching dress makers and found Melanie. I looked at many sites and even began working with one, however that person was not willing or able to give me exactly what I wanted.
I was very skeptical when I found Melanie, I thought it might be a scam or that it would be amateur looking. I sent Melanie countless pictures of my dress, I was EXTREMELY picky, but she was patient and reassuring. Best of all, she totally delivered.
I asked to make a designer dress, and she gave me exactly what I wanted. Same fabric, same color (but better, more rich),and style. I looked fabulous on my wedding day. Being a bit of a fashionista I knew that I had to wow my expectant guests, they are still talking about it! It is truely a testament to Melanie and her team that they can everything from elegant and simple to edgy and fashion forward.
Hands down, Melanie and Repplica Wedding Dresses is the BEST decision I made for my wedding! Even if I had the money to buy a designer gown I wouldn't! She is awesome!

Replicca wedding gowns is absolutely amazing to work with! I fell in love with a dress which is way out of my budget so I began looking for vendors online who might be able to make a dress that resembled what I wanted. A lot of the vendors I found had terrible reviews so I was super excited to find all the great reviews on wedding wire for Melanie. I contacted her and after receiving a quote that was literally 1/10th of the price the designer wanted I figured I'd go for it. I was completely shocked with the end result! Not only did my dress look almost identical to the designer gown, it looked even better!! When I recieved the dress I looked it over and even showed it to my future mother-in-law as she is very handy with sewing and quilting. We were both so amazed with the craftsmanship and quality of work, the attention to detail... everything was top notch. There really is no better quality for the price, if you're looking for a designer gown on a budget then you can rest easy choosing Melanie and Replicca!

Melanie is extremely nice and really works with you to try to make you happy. As a bride, you need to be aware that your dress may not look exactly like what you are imagining. Fabric is a big consideration, the weight of the fabric, the drape, these things have a big impact on the way a dress clings to the body and falls. Unless you go to a local tailor and get fitted and choose the fabric, you have to be prepared for your dress not to be the spitting image of the one you are trying to replicate. That said, I think Melanie does high quality beautiful work for a very reasonable price.

First let me say that Melanie is sooo helpful. When we first started communicating, I was all over the place. I didn't know what I wanted or anything. She was patient and very insightful. I decided to go with one of her designs and I was quick to change my mind about everything but she stuck through and worked with me. She had a great attitude and you can easily tell that she loves what she does. She was always excited about giving me updates on my dress which made me even more excited. When I received my dress, I just couldn't believe it, it was stunning, beautiful and everything I asked for. She did an amazing job and I would recommend her to anyone. The price was great and the dress came out perfect, no complaints at all. Everything I wanted in a dress, Melanie gave to me.

I could not be happier with my dress I received from Melanie, and Replicca! My dress was completed much prettier than the original photo I submitted, which was hard to believe because I LOVED the original alot! Melanie was VERY great with answering all of my questions, and getting back to me in a very timely manner. It was a nice touch to get my dress hand delivered to me from Melanie, and for her to be there for the final try-on. Thanks Melanie!!!! You did awesome work!!!!!!!

Hi, I had my dress made with Melaine. I found her great to deal with with and answered all my emails.
The problem was when i recieved my dress i did not think it looked anything like the picture i had sent her, There was a stain down the end of my dress at train. I asked for the dress to be made in Diamond White but theni recieved it it was more of a Ivory that Diamond White. There was no lining in my dress either and the material seemed to be cheap.
I am really upset about this as i can not wear my dress and i have to go and buy new one.
It's true what they say you only get what you pay for.

Hi Lisa, I don't understand! Why didnt you just let me remake the dress, like I offered? You never even told me about the color issue~!! I cannot imagine, why when i asked you if you wanted a refund or would let me remake the dress, making it priority, why you would say no! Other than that what can I do! Instead you tell Wedding Wire? Honestly, are they going to fix your wedding dress, I feel like i just got tattled on or something!! I honestly am fully concerned and have been since you told me about it!

My experience with Replicca Wedding Gowns was overall very good and I think that it is definitely the best service availible for brides on a budget. My dress came back with the wrong measurements, which I was disapointed about, but Melanie was very willing to work with me to have it fixed at a tailor local to my area because of time constraints. Even though there were some aspects that could not be perfectly re-tailored, the dress was made of lovely fabric and exactly in the style that I wanted. I have full confidence in Melanie's design capabilities and she was very attentive.

Horrible, horrible experience with this company - would definately not recommend!
I had two dresses made in the end with this company, the first was terrible quality, the dress not even the same silhouette of the dress I asked to have replicated. Melanie would not issue a refund, but offered to remake the dress closer to the dress I wanted, this time with original materials (why they weren't used initially remains a mystery?). The dress never arrived on time, which I found was onroute directly from China, therefore Melanie was never going to see the quality of this dress first hand. She offered a refund this time, and then the very next day changed her mind. I found Melanie very unprofessional throughout this experience, and would not by any means wish for a bride to have the experience I had with Replicca Wedding Gowns!

Nikki you had accepted your dress,said my team and I did a "fantastic job" I closed your file. A week later when you wrote me about being unhappy I reopened your file, which i DID NOT have to do! If you were so unhappy, why did you accept the dress? and then after you realized you had lost weight which caused your dress to not fit you then you contacted me I reopened and paid to make you a new dress out of my own pocket! I have certainly bent over backwards to make you happy, as I do all of my brides! It is NOT my fault Canadian customs held your dress for 9 days. The reason the dress went straight to you from my company is because there was a time issue OBVIOUSLY, since you didnt end up getting the gown before you left for vacation, whatyou haven't said is that your wedding date hasnt even gotten here yet! March 6th!! I have apologized profusely for things that aren't even my fault. In my own defense you have BOTH of the dresses that my company made for you! Why would I issue you a refund while you are in possesion of not only the dress you paid for BUT the one I paid to have made for you as well! Does Macy's issue refunds and let their customers bring the merchandise in later? As a matter of fact most bridal companies do not give refunds or remake dresses. I am terribly sorry you consider it such a "horrible, horrible" experience with my company who has tried so hard to please you! You know what I have learned in the last year? NO matter how hard someone tries, there are just some women who cannot be pleased no matter what! I opened this company to make my brides happy, by giving the best prices, quality, and customer service possible, certainly NOT for the money! :-( My first bad review!!
