Hello bees –
I have found many positive reviews from posts about Jasmines Bridal. I am seriously considering ordering from there but wondering which option to go with. Jasmines offers choices between premium grade and designer grade for both craftsmanship and/or fabric. I am wodering how much of a difference it really makes. Upgrading to designer grade craftsmanship and materials increases the cost 100%. I am thinking since the dress is all lace maybe upgrading just the material (then it is an increase of 50%). Not sure. Hoping those of you who have received your dresses from there might have some suggestions. Thank you. Oh – below is the dress I am considering.

I think for that dress, premium craftsmanship, but designer materials … makes the most sense. Because the design of the dress is so basic, you don’t really need the designer craftsmanship. But – since the lace is the focus of the dress, you’d want that to be high quality.
Let us know what you decide! I am, too, strongly considering Jasmine’s Bridal Shop.

I just ordered my dress form them like 2 weeks ago. I did premium everything because my dress budget was only 500. I’m getting the lazaro 3050 with a few changes to it. I’ll post pics as they come.

Agree with eagle… upgrade the materials but not the seamstress. After all, the site says that all the seamstresses have at least 4 years experience, right? I would also seriously consider Jasmine’s further down the line for my own dress. I know some of the girls here are not satisfied with their Jasmine dresses 100% from other threads, but I was practically DROOLING over the computer screen when I saw the pics. The dresses look sooooo good! Best replica pics I’ve ever seen!
EDIT: Didn’t see that you already made the decision, sorry! But I still think the dress will turn out awesome. Want pics pics pics!

I’ve ordered a Jasmine from the UK but I wasn’t given an option about premium or designer grades, only if I wanted to pay more for custom body measurements. Do you think I need to be looking into this?
EDIT: Just realised that Jasmine Bridal mentioned above is a store and not the designer of my dress (Jasmine Couture/Collection). Oops, ignore me!

@Shiba: I’m considering the Pronovias Caelum or Aglaya dress. Or Pronovias Alcanar. They are all very similar dresses.

HI everyone! I am new here and this is my first comment!
I am going to order from Jasminesbridalshop.com, but I have not decided what dress and what grade. So I am asking for help here!
I want to order Pronovias Barroco or Pronovias Elena-pls google them if u do not know what dresses I mean. They send me some pictures of Barroco and the dress was very well done. Really good quality.
Unfortunately, they have not got any pictures of Elena as they are making one now. This dress will be done in 1 month and I cannot wait that long for pictures.
I like Elena more, but I am worried how will look the dress, because of the see-through material on top…
What grade I should go for in Barroco and Elena? I have nooooo idea.
Should I go for Barroco, because I know I will get a nice dress or for Elena which I really like, but I do not know how will the dress look???
Jasminesbridal are great, responding quickly and answering all my questions, really satisfied with customer service…
Thank u for any advice, really appreciate your help!

I am also really considering ordering from jasmines bridal…have heard a lot of great reviews.
Just had a few questions that I’m hoping someone can help me with…
If they don’t have a particular dress you interested in on their site, will they make one based on a picture you send them? And also, how long does it roughly take from ordering the dress to receiving it?
My wedding is in June 2013 and want to know it would be here in plenty of time 🙂
Any help you could provide me with would be much appreciated!! 😀
