@iheartcake:  Sorry, I can’t help you (yet) but I’m also contemplating ordering my dress from Jasmine’s when the time comes so I’ll tag along to see what answers you get if that’s alright with you. 

Oh, and I LOVE your username, btw 🙂

@iheartcake:  Lots of bees are happy with the work Jasmin have done. If I were to go down the customs route, I would go with Jasmin. Too many bad reviews on other companies

@iheartcake:  I know what you mean! I think I read somewhere that they prefer pictures over wordy descriptions (because of the language barrier, obviously) so if you’re any good with photoshop, make good use of it! I think I’ll go without pictures if I opt for Jasmine’s because of the cost and just trust them to do a good job, I have been eyeing a few dresses from their website and everyone here says they’re great with lace. 

What a tasty choice of career you have! I’d get so fat in your school I would find it hard fitting through the door, much less into a wedding dress! :p

@iheartcake:  Deal! I’ll let you know if I go with them. I want a dress with a princess-like big tulle skirt and lace top and since they’re reportedly good with lace and there’s not much that can go wrong with a plain tulle skirt, I’m letting my frugal (cheap) side win! lol But with the Gemma, I wouldn’t be taking any chances either, it’s a tricky dress.

Good luck with your dress journey and your culinary school. And don’t worry about your weight too much. I once talked to a girl who worked in a chocolaterie that made their own chocolate and the mere smell of that place made me want to move in! lol She said she gained a lot of weight in the first month or so but then she got so used to all that chocolate she hardly even noticed it anymore.

Do they make beautiful dresses? Yes. There is no doubt. but there is no customer service. You are a nuissance to them, and they dont care if u dont spend your money with them or not. They also tend to make mistakes that i think are caused by the translating. there are like 4 people the instructions go through before they reach the seamstress, so its like a game of telephone, where the instructions get mixed up somewhere along the line.

the gemma id say would be fairly safe though, theyve done a good number of them by now to not require a huge amount of input from the customer. Watch your measurements though. I would add an inch or two to the hips, they tend to make their dresses smaller in the hips, and bigger in the bust then requested. They also tend to make more modest necklines then the original dresses.
