- Wedding: April 2014
I’m new here, but I’ve been following this thread a bit. I had a bad experience with a DHgate seller, the dress is beautiful. but it was about 5 inches too short, and it was a sheath dress! However, it seems like EVERYONE has good experiences with Jasmines. I’m thinking of having a Jim Hjelm spring 2013 dress made with them(definition of insanity right?), and I was looking for input from people who know a little more about it. I think it’s a pretty simple dress, but after my last experience, I’m a little scared. Here’s the dress:
Sorry if they’re enormous, I’m new.
I’m also wondering how to get in touch with them. I don’t have facebook, and this dress wasn’t listed on their site. Is there an email address? Thanks in advance for any input and advice!
Currently they are not taking on new customers, your wedding date says 22 March 13. Is that correct? If yes, then I don’t think you will get a dress.
If you have had trouble with a previous company regarding length or any other measurements, have you check that the measurements you gave them are correct.
It is a lovely dress by the way, and quite simple, so Jasmines shouldn’t have any trouble making it. Keep us posted.
You can find their email address on their website http://www.jasmineyang.com/index.php?task=contact
The back of the dress is amazing. I hope you’re able to get your dream dress!
Yea, I apparently joined at some point and have no memory of it. We pushed back our wedding date for health reasons, so the wedding is now November 15, 2013.
I was looking for a simple a-line dress with a lace bodice. I was thinking about buying this one:
As it’s only 260 dollars, but I feel like getting the bodice altered and having the back altered would end up costing me an arm and a leg. Plus I love the way the organza in the back cascades.
Thanks for the contact information, and assuming they will make it for me, I’ll keep updating during the process!
I love the eye-lash lace on the neckline and the way the fabric folds and wraps around the skirt. Very classy.
Like several here, I emailed jasmines a while back, and just got a auto-reply today that said they weren’t taking new customers. That’s fine, as I have plenty of time and not in a big hurry, BUT, will they message me when they do get freed up or am I going to have to email back later?
Maybe James you can advise us periodically as to Jasmines’ capacity and when they think they have have the ability to take on more customers.
It will make all of us feel better, because I am also waiting to order a new dress for myself and my daughter to attend her sister in law’s wedding later this year.
But gotta get through this wedding first, 10 more sleeps to go and I am nervous.
We are doing well 🙂 At least for existing orders and orders that already have deposits in. I think it was a good decision to focus on existing orders, so the paying customers’ experience remains good, and that we are less stressed.
So here is our current order of priorities:
1. Existing orders in production
2. New orders with deposit paid
3. Customers who we have replied to in the past, as long as not too much customization
4. New requests without customization
5. New requests with very little customization
6. New requests with some or a lot of customization (this is very resource draining and time consuming, so we are trying to avoid these during the busy season).
We start from #1 and work our way down, and there is no guarantee that we will be able to respond to customers in #4-#6, it all depends on how much volume is in #1-#3. Currently #6 is basically not possible to fulfill as we have too many customers and requests. We have been trying to expand, but it is very hard to find additional qualified seamstresses who have a lot of patience and technical skills, due to the revision services we provide and the level of accuracy we aim for.
Sorry for any inconvenience, but we don’t want to bite on more than what we can chew :S
Oh I think you misunderstood me. The 260 dollar dress was what I was planning on before I found the Jim Hjelm. I considered having it altered to look similar to the JH by having the bodice changed to lace and having the back lowered. I’m not alterations expert, but I imagine it would cost me a pretty penny, which is why I’m considering Jasmines.
I fall into category 4, so fingers crossed! At least I have til November, and a little time to drop that extra 8 lbs of winter weight!
