Question 4. BRIDES BEWARE - How do I know if a boutique is an authorized retailer who sells authentic designer gowns and not copies or knock-off"s?

If the price of a designer wedding dress is significantly below the prices generally prevailing in the market, it is highly likely it is not a genuine product.  For your security, please visit the store locator on the supplier's websites page to find an authorized retailer. The number of counterfeit products in circulation is rising constantly. Counterfeit products are being offered on websites and in unauthorized retail locations. In some cases, suppliers from China claim they produce genuine designer products. These products, however, have proven to be counterfeit and have been the cause of great disappointment, dissatisfaction and regret.
