How would I go about getting a quote for a dress?  I found a picture online and would be interested in getting a quote to have it made by Jasmine’s.  Can someone let me know the process?

Thank you!  For fun… here is the dress:

@ChristinaBride:  I am looking to get this exact same replica made! I would say go with 71 as 78 may be too dark. Do they have another shade in between the two?

@FutureMrsJohnson_:   Can you post a picture of your inspiration dress so we can see how the Jasmine’s version compares?  I think the dress is beautifully done.  About that part in the front… not sure if it’s just not my style or if they didn’t execute it well.  So maybe seeing the original dress will help.  I agree with

@dianey35:  that it doesn’t necessarily need to be redone.  But if it bothers you then it can’t hurt to price it out to see what local seamstresses think they could do and for what price.

@FutureMrsKelly2014:  You just send them the picture along with any alterations that you want (I used their email from their hp: [email protected]). They usually get back to you with more questions or a quote in a day or less.

@dianey35:  Thank you! “Not horrible” isn’t exactly the look I’m going for haha ๐Ÿ˜‰ We’re not sure when we’re getting married yet so I’ll take it to some seamstresses and get their opinions.

@beetobe624:  Yeah it’s not really my style either, the front at least. The rest I love. I can see in the inspiration pictures where they found that the front of the dress has a higher amount of lace but it doesn’t seem to be as severe as the my dress…

@FutureMrsJohnson_:  Sorry “not horrible” was a poor choice of words!  But seeing the original, I think what your dress lacks as compared to the original is the organic look of the cut-out.  The original isn’t a circular cut in the front, it looks more wavey and natural, like the flow of a stream (sorry can’t think of a better analogy).  The cut and the lace extends to the sides where it eventurally tapers off and connects with the train in the back of the dress.  The cut-out on your dress is much more abrupt. One concern I have with tinkering with it is that it is lace so if anything is replaced or added, it needs to match up with the rest of the dress which may be hard to do without replacing all of the lace with the same kind.  It may be easier to replace the chiffon part or maybe ask your retailer if they have more of the same lace they used for your dress and buy a few extra yards from them before they run out.  Out of curiousity, did you buy from JBS? If so, was this premium or designer craftsmanship?

@dianey35:  I was just giving you a hard time! Lol but you pretty much summed up my issues with it. I wouldn’t do anything to the lace part, I would just have them replace the layer of chiffon that’s on top (which has the wierd circular cut). Yes I did order from JBS and it is premium craftsmanship, designer grade materials. I ordered after their policy change regarding pictures only for designer craftsmanship so I didn’t receive any pictures before they sent me my dress and veil. If they had sent me pictures, I would’ve requested that they do the revision there – since that’s my only problem with the dress – because they have the same type/color of chiffon.

Hmm, you brides are hilarious complaining about what is essentially wedding dress piracy (and no, if you’ve seen it somewhere else and are just combining elements of it in different ways or doing it in a different colourway that is not ‘desiging’ – that would be inventing something original from your own research, drawings and ideas) not offering a ‘designer’ service anymore.

OF COURSE THEY’RE NOT!!! Why do you think designer dresses carry the price tag they do? Because they involve a lot of work, adjustments to get the details right, mock ups etc before they go into production. Also, a lot of sewing and particularly beading is still done by hand as it can’t be done by machine, especially if you’re asking for a lot of particular detail (and believe me, small fingers are better at that job if you get my drift)… Even with the extra designer pricing, it just does not make economical sense for them to be offering that service, especially if it means getting innundated with emails from panicking and very specific brides!

I don’t personally support the kind of wedding dress piracy going on with the Chinese manufacturers, as I think designers need to be properly renumerated and credited for their work, and that it is 1000x preferrable to go to a local seamstress than to order from China, but that is something every bride has to decide for herself.

But be aware of what you’re doing and supporting – ripping off someone elses’s ideas and business.

I know I’m going to get flamed now, but after reading this thread for a few years now, I am just stunned by the sense of inflated outrage coming through in some of the comments, when you’re essentially participating in something not 100% morally justifiable.
