@JasmineBridalShop:  Hi James, I can’t send an image through PM. So I thought I would put it here. I am not expecting 100% accuracy for the beading, but isn’t it really obvious in the picture below that it is really asymmetrical? When I receive photos like this, as much as I would love to approve it and have it delivered to me asap, I just simply cannot turn a blind eye.

@nephthys: 

To be honest, it looks quite symmetrical to me πŸ™‚

If you want both sides to be symmetrical bead by bead, then it would be very costly – as the beading process would be much much slower.  When I look at most of the photos of various original dresses, they are not symmetrical in the same way this photo is.  It is just not done by comparing both sides bead-by-bead, according to my knowledge πŸ™‚  The only time I have seen super symmetrical beading is on the super expensive bridal gowns – because that’s what brides pay for.

Please PM me your order number or email address so I can have a close look at the original photos.

Also if you can draw on the photo of the beading we have done, pin point the problems, I can ask the beading specialists to make improvements.  Thanks πŸ™‚

@nephthys:  I had just gotten a msg from James that he would like me to draw the outline on the picture. Just as what other bees had asked me to and what you did. I’m going to include the original neckline next to my drawing too for better replication. *fingers crossed*

I see that your main issue with the dress now is the beadings are slightly assymmetrical. Would it be possible for JBS to send you some beadings and try to adjust and realign either by yourself or relative/friend who’s good in sewing?

I was told that the only way to make the lining less visible under the tulles is to cut the tulles short like the lining. So I asked whether it’s easily done by myself or locally. James replied that all I need is a pairs of steady hands and scissors. So I opt for them not touching anything about it. Hope that helps πŸ™‚

Hello Bees,

I had realised that communicating with James is much better though he doesn’t reply as soon as Kimmie. Kimmie is great but James actually take his time to look at my dress and understand my concerns. He came back to me giving me advices of yes or no. That’s a huge deal to me. I’m ok with we cannot do this or that, but we can do something else like this or that. Just not coming back with the same issues over and over again. Especially weeks of waiting!

Now I’m just gonna try my very best to draw the outline of the neckline and ask for more lace appliques at the skirt, send it to Kimmie and pray they can do that for me. Phewwww

I’ll definitely update the pics of revisions I’ll send to Kimmie and wait for another round of revision pics πŸ™‚

@lisa_may:  Yes I contacted him and told him my issues with the asymmetrical beading and he said he could get them to fix that. Although there is another issue with the lace under the armpit which he said I will need to top up for revisions because I previously approved it. πŸ™ 

If only I knew earlier to bring up the neckline issue to him! But that’s water under the bridge now. I can only hope that it looks flattering on me. I hope they can fix your neckline too.

@lisa_may: 

Oh nah, that’s because Kimmie is still quite new to bridal consultation and she needs time to accumulate experience to know how to answer a lot of the questions on the technical side – same as the other consultants.  It took me 3-4 years for me to get this far πŸ™‚  I was actually extremely impressived with Kimmie because she has always been able to tell if a dress requires an underskirt or not, even the subtle ones.  It took me about a year to figure that out.  As our consultants gain more and more experience, they will be able to answer customers’ questions directly without coming to me in the future πŸ™‚

About the long wait earlier, I am sorry that it is my fault – not Kimmie’s.  We had a very difficult year in 2013… quite a few major personal projects (Jasmine and I had our first baby, and I had to take care of major home decorations, and we had a lot of moving going on as well) so we were both time-strapped, AND we had too many customers coming to us, so the service and quality level suffered.  Jasmine is extremely good at catching mistakes and detecting issues in orders, without her we made a number of mistakes either during production or in quality inspection.  But now we are both back at the company full force, trying to make things run smoothly as before (like in 2012), so things should speed up and very few issues should occur.  We will see πŸ™‚

I was supposed to order my dress back in October but my wedding got pushed back. Now that we have a new date I’m anxious to get the ball rolling. I hope their still taking orders.

 

Kinda glad I didn;t order because the dress I thought I wanted no longer appeals to me.  Gorgeous dresses ladies, and fabulous work by Jasmines as always!

Ok, ladies. Finally have pictures of my dress! There’s one thing in particular I don’t like about it, and that’s the front of the skirt. My mom says it looks great and adds extra detail to the dress – because you can see more lace – but I’m unsure, and might want to replace that layer of chiffon for a longer one. Any advice/suggestions Bees? Also, I don’t know why ALL the pics I have of the back of my dress are sideways. They aren’t saved that way on my computer and idk how to fix it Cry

@FutureMrsJohnson_:  Your dress looks fabulous on you! And they did a great job with the neckline. From the front view, I do feel that it does cut you off at an odd length. You will still see the lace anyway even if you have longer chiffon down the front.

@nephthys:  Thank you! I specifically asked for a deep sweetheart sexy neckline haha, the top is too loose though so I had to pull my boobs up for every picture and they’re just resting on the cups in the dress lol. Yes to the awkward cut! And it’s just not a gradual cut, it comes out of no where… I’m probably going to get quotes from a seamstress or two to see how much it would cost to fix it. I’m also barefoot so it’s a little long and I’m not sure if that affects how the dress looks in the front…I have this picture (that I took myself obvi lol) where I’m wearing heels, is it any better? It still bugs me Frown

@FutureMrsJohnson_:  I think the dress is beautiful and fits you really well.  The back is stunning.  I agree with you that the cut out is a bit odd but it’s not horrible in the sense that it necessarily has to be redone.  But if it bothers you, I think you should speak with some seamtresses to find out what they can do.  The circular and symmetrical cut out makes it look forced a bit.  Maybe you can have them soften the shape of the cut out to make it look more organic, or you can add a slit with some different material inserted there like tulle. Here is the dress I ordered from JBS, hopefully that gives you some ideas about the bottom. The idea of adding some fabric behind is nice too, I think it will soften the area and draw less attention to it. Good luck
