Thanks KoralK!

I think they did a fantastic job. Have you already placed your order? When is your wedding date?

Hi Ladies.  I got pictures of my dress today.  I'm thrilled with the work on the dress, but am not sure if they followed instructions and made the dress in ivory with champagne details as I requested and showed them in my detailed photos.  Also, they haven't added the lace cap sleeves yet.  Haven't sent them any more money, but did send an email in response asking about the color of the dress and about the cap sleeves.  I'm attaching the detailed photos I sent and the pictures I just received from Gianinar Bridal.  Opinions please!!

Ladies, I got my photos.  For some reason my post with the pictures is being held for moderation.  I will try to upload as a link here.  I feel the dress might be white and not ivory/champagne as I requested and sent to them in the original photo details.  I don't care at this point if it's all ivory, I just can't wear white.  It's my second wedding and I won't wear white.  Opinions please!

 

These first 2 photos are of the dress I took in David's Bridal. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

These next 2 photos are from Gianinar Bridal of my "finished" dress.

That does look white to me. Not ivory, and there's no gold lace to contrast either. I hope they can help you with resolution!

Hi atalanta,

 

They offered to make my sister a new bridesmaid's dress. They showed us pics of the new dress and the neckline still looked too high. James said they had a talk with their "designer" and that this process enabled them to find "some loop holes" in his designs. The neckline for my evening dress was also too high. They offered a $20 refund and I accepted it. It ended up costing me over $80 to get the neckline lowered. :( I've received the second bridesmaid's dress. It was still a bit tight in the bust area, but the overall quality was a lot better.

 

James had been extremely patient and tried to accommodate all our requests the second time. I think it's still worth it to order from Jasmine's Bridal and I trust that they will do what they can to make sure that their customers are satisfied. I just wish the seamstress had been more careful the first time.

They wrote back and it's ivory with ivory lace.  They stated that they can change the lace accents to champagne and asked when I need it by.  I'm extremely impressed with the detail on the dress and am more worried that changing the lace might lose some of the detail that they executed perfectly.

 

It still has the vintage look I wanted, just missing the colored accents I wanted.  Opinions?

Thanks!  We went everywhere.  Even department stores in NJ (we're in NY).  Can't find the color I wanted in a size 5 boys.  We went with tuxes.  My son's tux we bought a few weeks ago for my brother's wedding (he's a ring bearer).  Got a great deal at Men's Warehouse for by FI and best man.  Total for both was $139 (rental). 

 

I appreciate the help though!  Thanks!

Heather, It won't let me see your pictures because I don't have permission?

Ladies,

 

I went down to David's Bridal to make the decision about the dress.  I put the ivory/champagne and ivory/ivory next to each other.  We're talking about a couple of strands difference in the lace appliques.  I've decided to stay with the ivory/ivory.  They did an amazing job with all the detailing.  It's shipping today and I should have it within the week.  I will post pictures once it arrives.

 

Heather
