From what I’ve heard from James if you email with urgent in the title they’ll respond faster. And they hate long wordy descriptions, so lots of pictures (like you have posted here) would be better.

 

im having a hard time imagining it with all the changes but I’m not creative at all, so perhaps James would be able to better decipher your vision.

 

good luck and I can’t wait to see the progress!

Hey! Just a ill FYI I originally submitted a lengthy description to JBS and my order was actually declined:( however this was almost 2 months ago in their busiest season, I simplified my request and my order was eventually accepted:)

from what I’ve seen from other bees if your able to send pictures with simple illustrations and directions written on them it may be easier for them to visualize your request:)

good luck, I love how that dress looks on your figure:)

@Hopefulone:  Agree, not sure if Jasmines are accepting dresses with lots of customisation at the moment, you will need to confirm that with James first, so I would PM him immediately with that question.

Secondly, to help make it easier to understand your requests, yes, use pictures, but circle the part of the picture you are referring to with an arrow to the dot point.  Visual and verbal together.

The dress structure is simple, but getting the colour correct will be difficult as people have different ideas of what a colour looks like from the word.  AND YOU CANNOT TRUST YOUR COMPUTER SCREEN – this is the biggest mistake people make.

It takes a minimum of 12=-14 weeks to make a dress, plus you must factor in time for changes you may want along the way.  Then at least 2 weeks for final inspection and delivery, and on top of that you will probably have to have alterations, just like you would if you bought a dress in a bridal shop.

They have a rush fee.  When is your wedding? Obviously not July 2014.

Would love to see how this dress turns out.

Try and keep your descriptions short and sweet perhaps in bullet points and accompanied by good quality pictures that are either circled or have an arrow to literally point out the changes you want to make.

@Demi-chan:  I’ve attempted some of the roughest photoshop ever:

@taylorbee:  WOW  that’s pretty good.  For the waist I suggest when your order is accepted, give Jasmines the ACTUAL measurement from your shoulder to where you want the waist TO END.  That was you will get it exactly where you want it.

Also put your veil order in at the same time so they get sufficient lace for the dress and veil.  Lace patterns are not repeatable.  Also it will save time.

Looking forward to seeing this dress come to life so fingers crossed for you that you have enough time.

It might just be my eyes, but I think that lace might be on tulle, not organza, and so you’d end up with a heavier look; is that all right with you?

If I might make a suggestion or two, you’ll want to send Jasmines a more complete picture of the sash, and a less blurry one of the cap sleeves.

Are they similar to the ones from the lace dress? I would think it might be easier to say you want the lace and sleeves from the one dress so you just have to show the one additional dress with the Beauty, it might look less daunting a creation that way.

And by the way the Beauty looks lovely on you! Good luck on your dress journey πŸ™‚

@taylorbee:  Good point. this is what happens when we try to combine 2 dresses, sometimes the fabrics are different so you may end up with a different ‘fall’ to the skirt.

What was the Beauty dress made from?  You may want to keep to this fabric and attach a similar lace from the other dress on the skirt hem and cap sleeves.

@Demi-chan:  what about the ‘pomela’ by pronovias, it seems to have a lot of the elements that youd like it your dream dress πŸ™‚

Oook. First off, send all of the pictures to James to begin with. You can apparently send as many initial photos as you want but adding more later will cost extra.

Anyhow, I thought I’d try my hand at combining the elements as I read them:

@arabbel:  Now that is some beautiful photoshop! Nicely done indeed, I think James will have an easy enough time getting the ‘vision’ of the dress with this, you even got the color!

Though @Demi-chan, you should probably order color samples (if you can) just to make sure you’re getting the colors that you want. You can do a lot of things with a picture and words but getting just the right color, usually isn’t one fo them. If the color is a big sticking point (as well as the pattern of the lace) make sure to get your samples ahead of time, should save you some changes later on.
