I received quotes from both Dressily and Jasmine’s to replicate a particular dress and the quote from Jasmine’s is more than double that of Dressily. I curious about whether it’s worth it and what the differences are between companies/fabrics/craftsmanship/picture following/outcome.
My wedding is May 3, so I have to make a decision quickly! Thanks!

I’ve seen plenty of posts about the pros and cons of each on the boards. Shouldn’t take too long to search for them. From what I’ve read myself, Dressilyme is cheaper, but Jasmine’s produces higher quality dresses.

I have order from Jasmines as have many other bees here, and I have never read a single negative review. Yes they are more expensive than DM, but the service you get is great and the quality is amazing.

Thanks! I was really surprised to see the stark difference in prices between the two companies. I did do a search on this and another site and it seems like you get what you pay for. Based on my limited research so far, I think I’m leaning toward going with Jasmine’s. I’ll definitely continue searching on this and other sites, though. Their lag time in responding to emails is slightly disconcerting (4-5 days).
If I do go with them, does anyone have any recommendations about the premium versus the upgraded fabric and craftsmanship? I’m thinking that since it’s a relatively simple design with no extra beading or anything I might upgrade the fabric but go with the regular premium craftsmanship maybe?? I’m pretty curvy, so I’m depending on thick fabric with lots of ruching to hide the flaws. 🙂
Here’s a pic of the original dress and me trying it on. I’ll add a big flower sash later.

@amyj1276: I certainly support going with Jasmines. The lag time in responding right now is due to the Chinese New Year in early February and they are trying to get out as many dresses as possible. China just about closes down for 2-3 weeks.
The dresses they make are amazing, beautifully constructed, and I am talking about Premium grade. Designer grade is for more complex dress with extensive beading.
I don’t think you need to go designer for craftsmanship, but recommend designer for fabric. I choose designer grade satin for my daughter’s dress and it is lovely.
As your dress is simple, the fabric will need to be good.
The only negative comments I have read are from girls who are expecting a 100% exact replica, but are only paying 1/4 of the price. If you want an exact copy, buy the original.
Otherwise, a Jasmines Bridal Shop dress is as good as, and in a lot of instances better than the dresses you see in Bridal shops.
If you decide to go with them, post a link on the main Jasmines thread (part 3 currently), we love to follow a dress journey. Good luck.
