    Wow, that's the first time I've been called out in a subject line. Thanks Stinkerbell! Dress shopping was great, thanks for asking. I tried on a few dresses including a dress by my favorite designer and I am going back to square one and sticking with the very first wedding dress that I ever tried on about 8 months ago. The designer Cymbeline is way out of my budget but the dresses are so awesome. This dress is so fun and funky and perfect for a party wedding. It's made out of silk taffeta so it's extremely light weight but still sucks you in at the right places.

    I am happy to report that I found a company online that can replicate my $4,100 dress for $600!

    Ohhhh!! I like! and I can't remember who else ordered their dress from a Co. online and had a really good experience....but....that's great!! I remember when I was looking I called a shop in town and they nearly wanted double what I paid for the same dress at a store approx an hour away from me and mine is not a replica!!?? So I say go where you can get a deal =)

    Congrats on finding your dream dress!! Just make sure that you find someone who can give the online company a good review before ordering from them. I have heard both good and bad things about online companies that replicate dresses, more bad than good! Also remember that paypal will only refund purchases within 30 days, so if it takes longer than that to make and receive, you will not be protected through them!

    It was Chrysalide (http://www.mywedding.com/danielstephanie) so if you look in the knotties List she has her reviews and pic's....and yeah...like Savannah said...be careful, but also, if they check out, go for it!

    Thaks for the heads up ladies, thanks for pointing out the paypal policy. I found 2 companies:
    http://www.smartandswanky.com/
    http://www.mybigfatbeautifulwedding.com/

    I think I am going with smartandswany becuase she has replcated this designer's dress before. Plus they are closer so if I absolutely needed to fly up for a few hours I could and it woudl still be way less than the retail price.
