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 Maid/Matron of Honor 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!
