Budget Savvy Brides: $5K and Under

Favorite website for knock off dresses??

I'm wanting to get some extra input on the knock off wedding dress websites.


I am a member of some of the groups on PW already, but I was really wanting more input.


Goweddingdress.com is the only site I see with the pattern for the dress I want, but I haven't found anything about them.


What did you use, or are you planning on using? Good or bad review?

I went through http://www.dhgate.com


It's a China wholesaler site, and while I normally would shy away from them, I took a chance when a student got her prom dress from there and it turned out beautifully.  I know of two sellers that have done great work:  aokstart (did my student's dress) and fionavogue.  I'll post pics later so you can see.

So I did a lot of research and I think I'm going with bestdressprice.com


I emailed several and had them send me pictures of dresses they actually made. I told them which dress I was interested in as well.


Only one company storeofdresses.com had a reproduction of the actual dress I was after, but it was definitely not what i was after.


So I did a photo 3113965-1<----my inspirationSo I did a photo 3113965-2<----storeofdress.com replica


They really did a good job on top, but it was the skirt of the gown I was in love with. I was very disappointed that the ruffles didn't have the flower look to them.


Buyer100.com did a better job at replicating dresses, but in the end I was more impressed with the pictures sent by bestdressprice.com


So I did a photo 3113965-3So I did a photo 3113965-4


So I did a photo 3113965-5So I did a photo 3113965-6


So I did a photo 3113965-7
