Recommended Posts

Thank you so much for your reply it means a lot for me 

 

I want to ask about the fabric quality, if you can consider it as a excellent material, my dress is from satin and you know that there are handerd type of this material?

I am contacting now with Lisa, i asked here to calculate the total cost with veils and underskirt, she gave me 750$ for premium grade, and for designer grade its 955%, and for designer grade and craftmanship 1350$

 

i feel its tooo expensive!! is it really deserve this price?

A lot of brides (including me) have worked with Jasmines and had great experiences + Great dresses. They are pricier than other Knock-Off dress makers but I felt more confident going with them because their error margin is very low compared to the other cheaper dressmakers, and they keep to the time schedule.

 

It also helped that they have a blog and a facebook page where photos of their actual work is posted.

 

They are currently putting finishing touches on my dress but you can check my profile to see mid-production pictures. (Gotten some newer pictures but havnt gotten around to posting them yet).

 

So the PROS of going with Jasmines

  • Better Quality
  • Commitment to Promises
  • Great Customer Service
  • Production Photos of your dress will be sent to you for confirmation
  • Great communication (I give them a 5star here)
  • Photographs of Similar dresses on their blog and facebook page
  • You pay half the price of the dress to commence production and pay the other half when you are satisfied with the final product.
  • etc etc.

 

CONS

  • Higher price than the average Chinese Knock-off dressmaker.
  • They WILL charge you extra for any addition/changes you make after production has started (So put together all additional photographs and specifics you want in your dress before ordering)
  • Personal Peeve - They are also charging me $30 extra to ship via DHL even though I specifically requested for that from the onset and they never mentioned any additional surcharges. Now my dress is ready, they drop the extra charge on me.

That's all I can think of for now. Hope this helps.

Well, I initially wanted to order a satin dress but I had the same fears. I did see some pictures of their Premium Grade Satin fabric though and it looked good (Just not as heavy looking as the original dress I was looking to replicate) and I just wasn't willing to dish out the extra cash for the Designer grade fabric since I couldnt tell much of a difference from the pictures I saw.

 

But wow, what dress are you ordering? Just wondering if its a very complicated dress cause the price is quite high. (I.e if it has a lot of beading and embroidery/embellishments and detailed work)

 

Maybe if you could post a picture of your inspiration dress? That might help us understand why they quoted 750 for premium.

 

I ordered Pronovias Jalea and I am paying 370ish including shipping.

 

P.S. I have been communicating with Lisa so far and she has been great. And oh, they sent a mail apologising for the mix-up with the extra $30 for dhl...that its a new policy that was introduced "after" I had placed my order and wont apply to me. Yippee.

 

You can check these links for pictures of their satin work.

Hey girls, Just wanna say that I bought my dress on dressilyme.com and LOVED the dress that was delivered early, and looks amazing. :)  Don't want to post the pics as my FI might nosey around here, but if you'd like more details, feel free to ask or PM me! 
I would love to have a look at it! I'm strongly considering dressilyme or jasmines and want to see as many examples as possible:)

I haven't received my dress yet so I can't really comment on the quality of the fabric. However I have upgraded the materials to designer quality due to the fact that I could def tell the difference between designer vs premium in pictures.

My dress is made of tulle and organza and Candy sent me lots of pictures of designer vs premium grade materials. The premium grade looked a lot heavier, stiffer and shinier than the designer grade and that's because it's mainly polyster. Comparatively the designer grade looked a lot softer and lighter due to its partial silk make up. So my opinion is upgrade the materials to designer.

With regards to craftmanship, I think you can leave it at premium grade. They will keep working at the dress until you're happy with it.

 

if getting non-premium grade, which do you think is the best fabric to get? I would imagine tulle or chiffon would not have much of a different look from premium and non. what do you think?

I've contacted several of them. If you ask they will send you the photos of the lace they have.  I have worked with this seller on DHGate and although I ended up sending back because the blue was too blue the lace was beautiful, delicate, light, flowy.  I was really happy overall.
