Hello all! I decided to go with Jasmine’s Bridal after reading wondering reviews from other bee’s, so I figured I should share my own experience for anyone else out there who might be on the fence!
I went with Maggie Sottero’s Marion –
It was love at first site with the dress, but the price tag was ridiculous. I started looking at more affordable gowns until I ran across some of the posts on here about Jasmine’s Bridal, after seeing the other brides success stories I was sold!
I want to start off by saying their customer service is excellent, although it takes a while for them to respond, they are always polite and professional.
Anywho…. I emailed Jasmine’s a few weeks before placing my order and asked if they had made that dress before. Luckily for me they had and were happy to send pictures! It was a huge relief to see their previous creation, and it gave me the opportunity to point out things I didn’t want done to my dress.
Here are a few of the photos they sent me:

When I placed my order I asked that a few changes be made…
1. I went with the enclosure option “Lace Up til Waist + Hidden Zipper til Hips”, instead of a full lace back
2. I requested that they did not hitch the dress, but instead just let it fall naturally
3. I requested the modesty panel be placed lower like the original dress
I sent them this photo to explain what I was talking about:
They responded promptly and recommended natural white fabric instead of the bright white I chose because it would look better in photos. Apparently bright white looks blue in photos, and after comparing my photos to the ones above, I can see a big difference!
Here are my mid-production photos!
I am in love with the back; I even like the way it falls better than the original!
I am very happy with my decision to go with Jasmine’s (so far haha). I can’t wait to see the final dress and try it on.
Btw…. Their website is very easy to navigate, and their FAQ’s section was very helpful. My MOH took my measurements and we plugged them into the form Jasmine’s provides. (we sent the measurements in centimeters because it just seemed more accurate) I sent my payment via Western Union online, they confirmed payment quickly and got to work on the dress right away. I went with Premium Craftsmanship and Fabric (which is standard).
I will post more photos when I receive them!
