Here are a few pics from my wedding last week

A few pics from our summer wedding

 

I originally purchased 5 wedding dresses, sold 3 I didnt like, and had two altered.  It was a really hard choice in terms of which to wear on the day, in the end it was so hot I went with the one that would be cooler to wear.

@toasty:  How did you go with the seamstress? Do you have any pictures to show us?

@hiheel:  Yes! The pictures are on the third page of my Jasmine’s thread, at this link. It went well with the seamstress. I feel much more reassured about my dress. The alterations are going to be quite expensive, however, even though this seamstress is one of the more affordably priced ones in my area.

Hem: either…
– 1 satin layer, and 3 organza layers = $120, OR
– 3 organza layers = $60

Side Seams = $65

The other alterations to the dress I would have done anyway, even if Jasmine’s dress was a perfect fit.

Bustle:
– $10/point, with 10 points. 2 free points given, total = $80

Bra cups if needed: $15

@toasty:  I’m, glad it can be fixed and that you feel better about it. Despite the fact that it doesn’t fit, I still think you look stunning in the dress.

Hi ladies do you think jasmines could handle a fussy bride, trying to replicate a j’aton gown with a few alterations? 

http://www.google.com.au/search?hl=en&client=safari&tbo=d&tbm=isch&spell=1&q=j'aton+couture&sa=X&ei=_WojUaGdOcrKkgWO1oCYDQ&ved=0CDgQBSgA&biw=768&bih=928#biv=i|13;d|kkUvDALM43td_M:

Above is the link? 

I LOVE the lace- do you think they could make it look equally asexpensive? I’d  Like a v back and just to make the skirt part start in a lineinstead of lopsided..

@Ashrowethompson:  The link you provided is a google searh result with many dresses, so I’m not sure which one you’re talking about. J’Anton makes amazing dresses. Could you post specifically which dress you’re talking about?

From what I’ve seen from JBS they do great bead work and I think they make flange ruffles really well (one of teh J’anton dresses had flanges but I don’t know if that’s teh one you’re talking about). I’m currently ordering fabric samples from JBS for my dress so I don’t have any in person experience with their dresses yet.

Hello ladies! Just put in an inquiry with Jasmine’s for my Jenny Packham inspired Dentelle! I went and tried on the actual dress this week to see if the style was something that even flattered me, and I fell in love with it. So excited about starting this trek into having a dress custom made for me! My only real concern is the fabric, the dentelle was soft and moved nicely. Has anyone had any issues with requesting samples?

@Ixtlali:  No problems requesting samples at all.  In fact I highly recommend this step because then you know 100% the feel of the fabric and the colour.  No surprises when you get the dress.

Welcome to the Jasmines Club and looking foward to following your journey.

@hiheel:  Yup! I am waiting for an update too.

@Ixtlali:  I highly suggest getting fabric samples as well. I recently sent them payment for my samples (6 fabric swatches for $30 USD). I haven’t recieved them yet…the wait is a little longer now due to their holiday. I wanted fabric samples b/c I want a blusk pink dress and I want to make sure of the color choice…I’m also getting color samples in designer grade regular organza and thick organza to compare the “stiffness” or “flowy-ness” of the fabric.

Good night ladies! I wanted to know, what program do you use to highlight and write text on images when you are pointing something out to James? I would like to emphasize a few details of my dress, yet I don’t know how to do this?

@lelelove02:  I did it two ways.  Just used a simple word program and used the insert shapes to draw circles and arrows to point to what I wanted changed.  I then inserted a text box to explain the changes.

When things got too hard this way, I printed out the photo image, hand drew the changes, and then scanned a pdf to send to them.

Some Bees are extremely crafty with technology and use a Microsoft Paint program.

@Aussiemum:  Thank you!! I didn’t think  to do that? I have a paint program, but it is very complex and detailed and I don’t want to take up too much time trying to figure out how to use it right. I will try the word program and if necessary, the PDF scanned format.
