- Wedding: October 2013
Well, the fiancé and I have, for some reason, decided to try and get married this year instead of next year. So now I’m panicking about my dress and want to get an enquiry into Jasmines as soon as possible. I know what I want but I’m worried I’ll struggle to convey it. Any jasmine pros, your advice is greatly needed!
The basic dress is to be like Caroline Castigliano’s Beauty:
This one is of me wearing Beauty in the shop.
However, as you can see the waist sits quite far down. I want the skirt to start from right on the narrowest point of my waist. I’m a shorty and dropped waists do nothing for me. You can really see how dropped the waist is in this picture
Id prefer it to sit more like it does in this dress;
I like the waist panel on beauty but would prefer it to have beads as well, with a thinner sash.
I also want capped sleeves like these;
Im a big fan of the lace trim on the organza top layer in this dress though I wouldn’t want it coming up on the front, just the way it is at the back all the way around.
And finally! I want it in this colour with this veil. I’d like the lace and beading on the waist panel, sleeves, skirt and veil trim to match and be a shade darker than the dress. (Does anyone know what colour this and the lace would be according to Jasmine’s colour chart?)
It seems like a lot of requests but the dress I’m imagining is very simple! I just couldn’t find a photo of one that ticked all my boxes. If you can think of one please post it here 🙂
If anyone has any ideas, suggestions or tips on how to do this right, for both mine and Jasmines sake, I’d be very grateful to hear them. I’m planning on emailing them ASAP, as soon as I know what I need to say/send to them.
also, any general advice on how to handle a very short planning time would be great ^^
EDIT: just to try and sum up; Beauty with a higher waist, capped sleeves and lace trim on the bottom. All the lace parts to be the same lace with beading to make it heavy. To be made in a champagne/ivory colour with the lace a shade darker. Hope this makes it clearer 😉
