Oh my.. I don’t really have much advice since I never ordered from Jasmine’s, but I just wanted to tell you to relax, take a deep breath, tons of brides here order from JB’s and have great results, I’m sure there is just some sort of miscommunication right now that you can clear up before they start making the dresses and get it taken care of.

Do you have a pic of the dresses you’re replicating?

@EffieTrinket:  I’m not a seamstress, but it looks like there is an underskirt under there. I don’t think (but could be wrong) that you could recreate that poofiness without a hoop skirt or something underneath. But other than that, I don’t see why they wouldn’t make it in whatever material you asked for. In the blue dress, you can definitely see 2 different materials being used – I can only assume they think it’s satin under organza. Did they give you an explanation for why they can’t use chiffon?

You still have time to start from square one.

Honestly, this isn’t going to sound encouraging, but Jasmine’s has been tacking on more and more costs on top of what was originally agreed upon. That seems pretty sketchy to me. I’d canex the idea, get my money back, and maybe see if David’s Bridal or something can point you in the right direction.

It doesn’t have the awesome ruffled skirt you were going for, but this makes me think of a 1950’s cocktail dress.

You poor thing!  I would be a wreck if I were you and all you’ve already been through. Can you abandon ship with Jasmine’s at this point, or is too much of your money non-refundable?  If you can break the deal, this little dress is only $110 at Unique Vintage.com.  With a crinoline underneath, it might be closer to what you dreamed of!  Good luck and keep us posted!

Can you get your money back from them and start somewhere else? DressilyMe perhaps?

I would be seriously angry. They quoted you a price based on the dress pictures and now they’re saying the dress won’t look like the picture unless you buy an extra skirt? Nuh-uh, it should have been built into the dress to look like the picture.

This seems like really weird service to me.

@EffieTrinket:  I am not trying to start trouble…. I worked in a dress shop and it looks like that is matte organza over satin in the 1st picture you posted. The second one looks like chiffon but it could also be the matte organza. I hope this makes you a little happier?? and whoever said you won’t be able to get the poof from tulle—  if I had to guess why they are charging you more I would say it is because you want it that big. It could be cheaper to get a separate crinoline for each girl.

 

I know not all of this is stuff you want to hear!! I hope it helps your nerves a little?? Good luck dear!

Less wordy: “Stop work. Order canceled.” It sounds like they are not on the same page with you. If they can’t pick up the phone and try to get a handle on what you want, there are plenty of shops willing to go the extra mile, I’m sure.
