@KateS77:  That is my actual dress at mid-production. It is in mid production as we speak. I sent them an email with red drawings on it telling them how I want them to change it.. Here they are. I havent heard back but  I will keep you posted! 🙂

@KateS77:  And no, it won’t have beading on it like the original.. However, I didnt request it because I just figured they couldnt do it as intricate as Claire. (sigh!) I loved the beading.. I wish there was some way to add it on after I get it.. probably not 🙁

@springybride:  I am sure they can do the beading.  Have you asked? Jasmines are amazing at beading.

@KateS77:  I went with the designer grade ( whatever the best one is, can’t really remember..) It is a 30 percent increase if I remember correctly, which is really not bad!

@KateS77:  That Etsy dress is gorgeous and sure does look pretty close to the original! I love the sleeves and neckline.

@KateS77:  All their beading is done by hand.  I think it is worth asking because it would make a big difference to the look of the dress.

Just wanted to let you guys know- I emailed Jasmines and they are going to add beading to my dress:) It is only 10 percent extra… great deal!

@KateS77:  It’s always worth asking the question.  

There is a Bee posting about an Elie Saab dress and I have suggested she try Jasmines.  So many other posts suggesting ‘similar’ dresses because her budget cannot stretch for the Elie dress.  I sometimes wish they would just ask Jasmines, because if you are going to compromise to that extent to get a similar dress you might as well as have a replica at 90-99% accuracy!!  And a hell of a lot cheaper with the same level of craftsmanship.

I am positive that Jasmines will be able to do the beading and both of you will be over the moon about your dresses.

Hey! Just got pictures of my finshed dress and I think it is absolutely spot on. They did an AMAZING job. Here are some pictures. I can’t wait to try it on!
