    I understand being on a budget and liking a dress that isn’t in your budget but anything that is trying to be the real thing is just cheap..all around.  I would go a different route.  I’m sure you can find something with the same style as your dream dress.

    I think you will also find that most people who dont like Jasmine’s haven’t actually done business with them, they just don’t like the idea of it.

    I am just at  the beginning of my process – I’ve been sent many fabric samples, and I’m sorting it out and making decisions. But, so far their communication has been excellent. And judging from all the other happy brides on these boards, I feel confident having them make my wedding gown.

    @Mrs. Charlotte:  I’m quite offended by your comment. Thanks for calling my dress and thousands of other bride’s dresses cheap!

    @Lalk2bee Most brides on here seem to be very happy with the result of going with Jasmines.  If you don’t have an other options I will just do what makes you happy.

    @babecake I’m sorry she was asking our option and I was sharing my option.

     

    In the wedding dress industry there is no laws or copyrights in regard to using someone elses designs.  A designer works really hard to create and see his visions through just for someone else to profit off it.  I know many designers do it and it’s hard afford but I just personally don’t agree with knownly copying a different designers design.

    @Mrs. Charlotte:  Most designers copy from eachother. It’s how the fashion industry works. They tweak one thing, and that is what makes it a different design. Jasmine’s bridal shop will never state that they can make a dress exactly the same as the inspiration dress

    @babecakes whatever makes you happy.  They advertise different designers dresses and even show the designers press photos as examples.  Personally I don’t agree with it but that’s me.  Being a bride is about doing what makes you happy so the point is from what I see many brides are happy so if it will make you happy I will give it at try 🙂

    @Mrs. Charlotte:  I should probably also state that part of the appeal of using this route is that you can change the things you don’t like about a designer dress. Don’t like the beading? No problem. Change the neckline? Also no problem. You can effectively design your own dress using bits of all the ones you tried on… which is just what the designers themselves do when they design a new line.

    Besides… what other choices do a lot of bees have? I’ve looked at dresses in shops in the UK, and I can say honestly that if you have less than about £900 (the best part of 1,500USD) then you will end up either making the dress yourself, getting it made by a friend or family member, buying it in Oxfam, or wearing a beaded tablecloth down the aisle. They only start looking OK at around that price point, and nice ones are about £1,200 and up. The Jasmine’s ones really kick the metaphorical arse of anything twice the price. Why should you pay more and get less?

    I ordered from JBS and recently received mid-production pictures. I tried on Sottero and Midgley Topaz in store but there were a few things not perfect about it. So I asked Jasmine’s to customize it for me. Like Rachel said, that’s a huge bonus for going this route. You can make whatever changes you want.

    JB does appear to make good craftmanship wedding dresses, however please do note that it is a replica of other designer’s work.

    I personally would have prefer JB to inspire from the designer’s dresses and add a twist to the design to achieve a sense of individuality (if i make sense!)

    And i found bees (especially ones who didnt order from them) are quite biase in their opinions, sometimes it does feel like they are promoting JB heavily

    My Jasmine’s dress is on its way! I have been SUPER impressed with the work they have done so far. They have sent me pictures all along the way of mid-production, almost-done-production, post-production, etc. I can see differences between the original and my dress, but I either asked for them, or am perfectly happy with them. I posted my mid-production pics on this thread. Once I get my dress, I will post my review for sure!

    COMMENTS PLEASE! My Jasmine's Bridal dress

    As for those who look down on using designer-inspired dresses, I would like to echo those who have said that the fashion industry in and of itself is all about replicating. This is why the only copyright laws that exist are of logos, not designs (who would get credit for a solid scoop-neck tee, for instance?)

    On another note, I am a bride on a budget, and I feel savvy and happy about getting the dress I am in love with for a price that is, granted, still unreasonable (500 dollars), but doesn’t make me gawk to the point of wanting to elope to city hall and forget the whole darn thing! I think I will take the difference in buying the original dress (1300 dollars) or even a used one (600 dollars) and put it towards me and my husband’s life together!
