    Yes, I think that Jasmine’s Bridal could easily do that. They have made dresses based on original drawings or photoshopped designs before, so I say go for it. You may want to join us over in the “Jasmine’s Bridal Shop / China dresses” thread too since a lot of Jasmine fans hang out over there.

    My opinion is that you can definitely improve a lot on the top of the original dress. The skirt looks great but the top is not shaped very nicely in my opinion.

    Of your ideas, I like #2 and #6 best. 

    #4 just isn’t my personal style since I tend to dislike dresses where the bust area is highlighted in a different color than the rest of the bodice. If you really like it, though, I’m sure they could do that and make it look nice. 

     

    #5 isn’t bad looking at all, but to me the black bodice says “evening gown” more than wedding gown. I would happily wear a dress like that to an awards ceremony or something. πŸ™‚ However, it does remind me of some of Vera Wang’s new styles since she seems to be very into black and white this year.

    I like number 2. I think having a strap would balance the dress better, you can make it sexy by having that top and low back.

    Can I ask what body shape you are? I like the Coco as it is – there’s a sweet simplicity to it – but I think it would be unflattering/unsupportive if you have curves. 

    The skirt reminds of a number of Reem Acra dresses, so my suggestion for a mash-up would be to change the bodice to a strapless sweetheart with boning. You could either do some sequinned/beaded detail (like the RA Eternity gown), do a combination of silk chiffon and lace pleating (the Orchid gown) or have a very plain bodice and add a sparkly sash (check out photos of Reem Acra’s Angel Hair dress, minus the beaded cap sleeves, for what I mean).

    I like most of your versions better than the original, but six in my favourite, I think. πŸ™‚ The original top just does not seem like it would be flattering on anyone’s body – even the model, though lovely, and certainly not looking bad in it, is still clearly not that flattered by the supportless, floppy top.

    I like #3 as well, if that piece of white isn’t actually supposed to be there, and the sparkles go all the way across. If the white little piece is part of the design, it looks a little odd. #2 isn’t bad either.

    I voted #6 but I really think it depends on your theme for your day.

    I am currently in the ordering process for my dream dress with Jasmine’s Bridal Shop(JBS) and I think you would be doing yourself a massive favour by sending them an email about your dress requirements and request a quote.

    Definitely check out the threads on here about them, plenty of pics and opinions/feedback. There is also an amazing wealth of knowledge from past and present customers- a very supportive group πŸ™‚

    @MrsBee2B:  I love the skirt of the original, and agree the original top is beautifully simple, but unless you had a perky set of breasts, well!!  some girls can get away with it.

    I agree that # 6 is great but I also love some of the suggestions that peonyinparis:  has given you.
