- Wedding: September 2010
Hi everyone. I have gotten tons of mail asking about my Michelle Roth Marina wedding dress I ordered from China last year and haven’t had the time to respond to everyone so I thought it would help if I posted here.
This is Jasmine’s website:
This is Jasmine’s e-mail. They speak English very well:
They were selling on eBay but I just saw they aren’t anymore which is a bummer but you can still read their feedback here:
I see the price on their website is more then I paid but still a great deal. I contacted them off of eBay and worked with them from start to finish as they were not familiar with the dress.
I paid about $200 with shipping and another $30 for the bolero I sent them pics of(Fallen Angel). They added on $60 for the train shown in the pics but it turned out funky so I actually took it off before wearing it. They misunderstood in the beginning that the dress had a train. It was my error as the pics (the pics of the dress on their website look like the ones I actually sent them) of this dress were so hard to find anywhere and the ones I e-mailed them only showed it busseled so they didn’t realize it had a train.
They did add the bussel shown in my pics below but it was really weird. It actually folded up into a pocket on the back of the dress and didn’t bussel like a regular wedding dress. It was a piece sewn on so I just took it off. I looked great without it and still had a bit of a train anyway.
The only other issue I had was the way the back was made. It didn’t come up far enough In the back and the bust area would not stay tight at all no matter how tight I laced the back. The back needs to come up higher to keep the front from being loose. Straps would also be a good option and can be tucked inside just in case.
Other then that I was so pleased with the dress, the service from Jasmine’s and the fabric of the dress. Very soft lace and thick quality fabric. Shipping was amazingly fast. Only 5 days to CA. They would most likely work with you on the price. Tell them I sent you. my name is Christine Walton and my dress was ordered last July 2010.
Always use Paypal to send the payment as you will have recourse in case anything goes wrong.
I absolutely LOVED my dress. It was amazing even with the little issues. And just keep in mind that your wedding dress is basically an accessory for your wedding day. It’s part of the illusion you are creating. It does not need to be perfect. No one will notice the little things that you see.
Be sure to order with plenty of time for alterations if needed. They work fast but you don’t want to be stressed about the dress as it is such a big part of the whole wedding.
