@Aussiemum:  I do love the first dress alone. But I wanted a more full/romantic skirt. I have always dreamed of ruffles and feeling like a princess without the need for a ball gown. : )

@TaraW:  

Yes, so sorry.  A quality inspector got sick for a few days, and a lot of big orders to ship for bridal shops these 2 weeks, so our shipping queue is currently very backed up.  Just msg me to tell me if your order is very urgent, and we will reprioritize to take care of the shipment.  Our shipping phase is longer than other companies’ because we do a very thorough final detailing job that most factories do not perform: where we cut off all loose threads, go over the edge of every lace piece, check the threads on every single bead, examine every inch of dress for any slight stain or pulled stitching/threads.  We often have to replace some panels/sections of dresses because most of the dresses go through so many revisions and photo sections, that they tend to get dirty or slightly damaged.  But we really want to  ensures all details of the finished products are as perfect as they can be before shipping them ๐Ÿ™  It is a price we have to pay for providing mid-production and revision services.  We wish we could just take an order, make it, finish it, and ship it.  That would be 10 times easier and faster.

Thanks so much. I was thinking of the sparkles but I guess you guys are right. The only way will be to put in a bling belt. Cant wait to put all my ideas together and order the dress.

@MrsLevell2Be:  I have a picture of the Lazaro 3201 made by Jasmine bridal on one of my posts if you want to go have a look. I played around with the idea but I wasnt comfortable with the outcome of the skirt of the Lazaro.

Dear Bees, I have some concerns regarding my dress, as you all know im getting the elie saab cloak dress made from Jasmine’s. Out of all the options i had i decided to go this route because i couldnt trust anyone else with this complicated dress especially since i had customized it to some level i.e adding sleeves and high neckline.

 

Now, i need some suggestions for the neckline and maybe sleeves. I need to cover my neck, sleeves and hair for modesty reasons that’s why this was a perfect option for me. But Im wondering if the end product will look as nice?. Im attaching this pic for ref. I told James, that the cape/hood should be lined with another layer of tulle and should not be see through (90% opaque). I dont want it to look bulky at all and dont want any thick fabric lining showing from inside. How does it look to you? The sleeves will be made of the same fabric i.e tulle layered and fitted long (not so see through).

 

Also, James had asked me that he needs to know the necdkline shape for the non see through section of the bodice, front and back since im changing the design of the bodice. I want it look all the same, no sweetheart neckline or anything. I want it to look almost as this pic. Does this response sound ok? I need suggestions on how to do this. Please help me!

@JasminesBridal:  James! Just read your email, thanks for your patience and suggestions. Thats is why im ordering my dress from you. The quality inspection does matter so much to us bees. That is why i went the designer route. Im worried now as you said if i want good quality dress, i have to wait until November. My wedding is most probably in Sep. Does that mean the quality inspection wouldnt be done for my dress?? ๐Ÿ™

@thehystericalbride:  

If you want the most exquisite and beautiful replica ever made for this Elie Saab dress from our company, I recommend to receive it in November.  We are going to assign our most experienced and skilled beading specialist to this task and it will take months.  She beaded the other Elie Saab dress shown in the previous part of this thread, and it took her almost 6 months.  Now your dress’ workload is about double of that dress, but what is working for you is that we are heading into the slow season, so I think 6 months should be okay (instead of 1 year lol).  A good dress can be rushed, but a great dress cannot be.

If you started the order 2 months ago, then we could get it to you in September, but now it is mid May ๐Ÿ™  The decision is yours, though.  And we hope you will let us have the time to make this dress great, as this will be the biggest project we have undertaken besides the other Elie Saab dress lol

@JasminesBridal:  My wedding is Aug 4, I paid rush fee to get the dress done by July 21st ( 2 weeks for alteration like recommended), but I saw that the dress sometimes get sent late even when I paid rush fee, and it makes me worried. I already transferred the money. Do you think I can for sure receive my dress by July 21? The dress I want is Gemma replica.

@newbeeaugust:  

If you don’t have requirements out of original order scope, then it should arrive on time, otherwise part or all of rush fee will be refunded.  Because we provide mid-production and revision services, the process can really drag on.  It really depends on how much the customer likes the mid-production photos, and if the customer wants to make additional changes or add requirements or add more items.  So this process goes faster or slower depending on the customer.  A not-so-picky customer who trusts us, gets the dress very fast.  A picky customer will usually have more revisions, and a customer who doesn’t trust us will take much longer to confirm each production phase (and she will ask us take photos many more times lol).  So it is really hard to say.  It all depends.  We work on orders according to their receive date, so a rushed order is always worked on before the non-rushed order if they were placed at the same time.  We might have had a couple close calls, but I don’t think we have missed a wedding date or last minute alteration date yet. 

Oh another important note: if a customer doesn’t have the means or skill to draw on a computer or provide a drawing/illustration to communicate the revision requests to us, it would take much longer as well.  Because we need clear and graphical instructions for revisions, otherwise we can misunderstand the request and perform a wrong revision which cannot be undone.  Wedding gowns have so many design elements in them, so it is very hard to understand the revision requests from words alone – we NEED illustrations please! ๐Ÿ™‚

@JasminesBridal:  Thank you for the detailed reply. This makes me feel better. I’m more worried about not having a dress for my wedding than the rush fee LOL

Jasmine’s sent an updated picture for the production of my sash. (See old post here: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/jasmines-bridal-shop-china-dresses-part-vi/page/12#axzz2TCD7cV4F)

I need your help again, bees, in deciding how to respond. The updated sash looks SO much better than the last picture they sent, but it’s still not as close as I assumed Jasmine’s would get. So the question is, when do I decide that I’ve ordered a replica and this is as good as it gets? See below. The top picture is the inspiration picture (Pronovias 307) and the bottom is Jasmine’s version.

It’s hard to describe what I’d want changed, if that’s even possible at this point. The biggest thing is that the center still isn’t an oval shape. But overall, this just seems chunkier and it doesn’t have the same feel to me as the delicate, detailed, elegant original. Sigh. What do you think, Bees?

@slpscientist:  I think its ‘nice’ but i do think they need to get rid of the small grey beads, I think they make the sash look dark.  I agree that the middle should be more oval.

I had promised to post photos of my wedding wearing my Pronovias Divinia replica gown made by Jasmine’s.  I had ordered back in September 2012 and received my dress in November 2012.  I got premium materials and craftmanship.  I LOVED the dress! I was really happy with it and I only wore it for like 2 hours lol   I switched into another dress for my reception so I could sit down and eat. Laughing   But anyway, I just wanted to give my stamp of approval and thank James and Jasmine’s for making a great gown for a great price!
