These are photos for the dress 98% finished.  We still need to do some final touches when we return from the holidays, then the pins on the dress will be removed.  Would really appreciate your feedback and suggestions to improve the design.  Thanks! πŸ™‚

@JasminesBridal: Holy Crap!  That is amazing!  How much do you charge for it?

@alj:

Thanks.  It took us 4 remakes and about 4 months of research & experiment to get to this stage – we had the help from several customers (maybe also bees on this forum) who went to bridal stores to take detailed closeup photos of the original.  I don’t know if vendors are allowed to post prices on this forum, so you can email me at [email protected] for more info πŸ™‚

@kutiekai:   Also–you’ll see this…but the photos shown are of the designers…not their dresses.  Alot of the replica places do that.  But I’m sure you can contact her to see photos of their work.  Hope it helps!  For the price…I definitely think it was worth it based on the photos she sent.  I should get my dress mid/late February because I requested some changes.  But I’ll update on quality when it is received.

I absolutely love the dress from Jazmines Bridal. Very close to the real thing.

Thank you girls for doing this thread.  It makes a beautiful Gemma-like dress feel more and more within reach =)  I’m definitely going to order one after I compare the different vendors.

@2scoopz:   OMG I got my dress yesterday!!!  It looks SO much better in person.  I had her change the top part, so now it’s much more like the gemma with a criss cross type thing around the boobs.  (wonderfully put. I know)  πŸ™‚  I tried it on last night but I couldn’t do the corset up myself and I didn’t want my fiance to help, so I need to take photos when someone can put me in it.  I am VERY HAPPY with it though.  It doesn’t look like a $200 dress!!! πŸ™‚  I will post photos as soon as possible.  The ones I took last night on my phone aren’t great because I’m holding the dress up with one hand.   Personally—I couldn’t be happier.

@YSQueen:  

 

HI Ladies—I have pics!  Mind you—they’re not great because they are from my cell phone….and I couldn’t lace up the corset myself so the dress is ill-fitting in the pictures.  It’s not exactly like Hillary Duff’s dress, but it’s close enough for me.  I had her change the neckline to the sweetheart…and she did replicate the “blizzard beading” effect.  So for the price, I couldn’t be happier. Hillary’s Original Above….

 

My replica (keep in mind it needs steaming and it’s not laced up in the back so the top has big gaps on the sides and itsn’t fitting snug across the bust and looks crooked).  Also—it has a nice train that you can’t see in this photo.  Sorry it’s sideways…I dont’ know how to change it.  πŸ™
