I’m about to purchase my wedding gown online via Jasmine’s Bridal Shop and need some help. My inspiration dress (for the top part) is Ines Di Santo’s Anastasie. I really love how the straps look, but I’m not sure how to describe it to the tailoring team at Jasmine’s. The pictures aren’t super clear, and there aren’t any places near me that carry that gown. I’m totally clueless when it comes to describing fabric and beading… and am hoping some of you saavy ladies could tell me what materials might have been used to create this. How should I describe the strap in a way that makes sense to the dress maker? It looks like 4 thin off-white fabric straps that are attached to tulle and some type of sparkly beading????
Jasmine’s sent me a beading chart below. Do the straps look like they have F1 sequins?…or perhaps C1 or C3 beading?…or something else??
Thanks so much!!! 🙂

Any of the smaller ones will be fine, it just depends on what you want.

I think it looks like it has overlapping F1 sequins. The C3 beading also looks like it would be a very pretty choice.

I got married on June 2, 2012 and had the biggest mental break down of my life. I ordered the Vera Wang Gemma dress with upgrades to fabric and quality, ended up paying $1800. I was terribly disappointed in both.
This is aWARNING to all BRIDES!!!
Do NOT buy any products from Jasmine’s Bridal Shop (http://jasminesbridalshop.com/) unless you want to be severely disappointed. They outsource the dresses to factories inChinaso the company does not see the dresses in person, they are just the middle man out to make a big cut. There are absolutely NO guarantees and they can not back up any claims of quality.
Even if you have many pictures to show them, it will result to a terrible product for the following reasons. When upgrading to designer quality construction and fabric, it costs twice as much but there is actually NO difference to the lower grade. Construction and fabric is immediately visibly poor. For example, sewing of the bust line is uneven (one side pointed and higher then the other), inner lining bulges out and is visible on the outside, slit on the bottom of a dress is crooked, fabric looks like plastic, and if there is any sequins on the dress it will not be secured (loose thread ends will be sticking out and sequins will all fall out).
Please avoid the hassle and wasting money on this company. I ended up buying another dress from a shop in Canada that was 10X better for half the price.
