I will try to post pictures as soon as I can. I wasn’t bashing all factories in China.
I’m happy for the brides that love their dress. I really really wish I did too. However, I was extremely devestated right before the most important day of my life and I am merely sharing my experience to prevent other brides from going through the same thing. All the issues I stated above were not just my personal point of views, but from professional seamstresses located in Canada. The seamstresses noted the construction problems of the bust line and inner frame as well as the fabric quality. The tulle with the sequins was the worst part. The tulle actually looked like plastic fish net with sequins falling off of it. The seamstresses thought I bought the dress for $100-300 but I actually paid $1800 (~$900 for the dress, +construction upgrades + fabric upgrades). I didin’t even list the issues with the bridesmaid dresses where the zipper was crooked and the pleating was crooked. The slit for another evening gown I bought was fixed 3 times because it was crooked the first 2 times, and by the time I got the dress the seamstress told me that it was still sewn incorrectly. The inner lining and the outer fabric slit were not sewn in-line, but I thought at least it was cut straight so I wore that dress anyways. I bought 6 dresses from this company and the only one I didn’t have problems with, which was a Chinese style dress. There were serious issues with all 5 other dresses, but the biggest problem was with the wedding gown which is what I focused on in my original post. What I am saying is that your wedding dress will probably be the most important dress you ever buy. Don’t risk all the grief and sadness I had to go through. In the end I was luck to find another wedding dress 3 weeks before my wedding, but I can imagine not everyone can be that lucky. Good luck to all those future brides out there!

Man, posting the same 2 overly-long paragraphs over and over really helps people to understand your point better…
You couldn’t have honestly expected to recieve a legit Vera Wang Gemma from Jasmine’s Bridal for $1600. Vera Wang’s flagship line only produces in America and that dress costs $5500-6500 new. One Google search on “Jasmine’s Bridal” would have told you that these dresses are made in China. You also didn’t follow their return policy and waited 2 weeks to inspect the dresses and make a complaint, apparently. Sorry you were disappointed and its good to share your story but not ad naseum.

Thanks for your feedback CorrinaM. Whether these problems are really our fault or not, we have already cautioned all of our employees and departments about these issues, and everyone will pay a lot more attention to avoid them from ever happening. Are we perfect and never make mistakes? Of course not, but the chances of making mistakes should be extremely low, let alone the colossal failures you have mentioned.

lols actually no. While factories do tend to outsource to other cheaper factories, I wouldn’t be surprised if designers had their own factories so they wouldn’t have the outsourcing problems.

I’d love to see proof of this. I haven’t found a single negative review of Jasmine’s bar this and one other one (where the girl admitted that the issue was the fault of both parties). Also, I am not inclined to believe the OP when she states an impossible price – even with every possible upgrade this dress only comes to $1325.23.
