Marisa Brides

Any brides out there ordering, ordered or wore a Marisa dress? I just wondering how long it took for your dress to come in, I was quoted six months. so that would be February. Also, can you post pictures of your dress, her website isn't very up to date with her dresses so I was curious about other styles. Thanks!

I was very close to purchasing a Marisa gown.   I was also quoted approximately 6 months.  


I forgot the style number but it was a strapless, modest sweetheart neckline, asymmetrical, trumpet/fit-to-flare gown with lots of jewels/beading at the right side of the midsection area...  kinda creates the illusion of having an hourglass shape...  It was so modern glam but I ended up buying a simple, lace number.   I've been trying to find a pic of this dress too but had no luck.


For some reason, the designer doesn't want to post pics of her gowns...   probably because she doesn't want anyone else using them or because a lot of her dresses are knockoffs of super high-end designers.

D1rty - i'm drooling over that gown, but that would definitely not fit my venue.    It's so red carpet beautiful... very big city girl chic..

Mine's a Marisa 737 (silk organza with Alencon lace). Before I ordered, they told me it would take 4-6 months. I figured with the lace alone that it would take longer to make. I didn't request any special changes/alterations. When I ordered it, they called me a few hours later and quoted me 5 months (June 19 to Nov 17). It was actually ready by early October - imagine my surprise/delight!!


Just from my experience, these gowns are very well-made. They're also SO much lighter weight than anything else I tried on with a similar style or silhouette.


I was told she doesn't post many pics or do much advertising b/c it keeps the dress costs low(ish) for the higher-end materials used. I have several pics of different angles of the dress that I found on a re-sale gown site. If you want, I can email some to you. Let me know. This is me in it:

Wow! You look gorgous. I did notice how beautiful she does lace on her dresses, that was a big factor for me. I love lace dresses. My dress is Marisa 796 and the only picture that I found of it online was on Brides.com but it just got taken down and now I can't find any other picture. I hope that mine comes in early!

Thanks so much! These gowns just float around you and move so beautifully... everyone I've seen in Marisa looks great in her dress! I hope you get it early and I'm sure you'll love even more than you remember! Happy Thanksgiving!

I bought a Marisa gown, style 726. It's the exact replica of the melissa sweet "lia" dress. I didn't know this when I bought it. I was a little disappointed when I saw my dress in a magazine with mellissa sweet's name on it (because I thought "oh no, I have a replica dress!) but then I realized that it doesn't really matter who designed it, as long as I love it!! And....I paid a lot less! Yeah! I ordered it a long time ago, but I think it took about 4 months to receive it. It's absolutely gorgeous and it was $1400 cheaper than the Melissa Sweet dress.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!
