Post all "Knock Off Wedding Dress" questions/comments here

Recommended Posts

 

 

Ok... so after all the Jasmine pics, here are some Dressilyme pics.  The dress is almost exactly as I asked for.  I wanted my dress to sparkle a bit with clear sequins and/or beading, but think they just put on pearls or maybe I just don't see the sequins due to the lighting.  I asked to see if they could be added.  I ordered the dress only 2 weeks ago!

They basically denied responsibilities for many errors they made (which my tailor pointed out), and for the mistakes they admitted, they said that they are entitled to make errors as errors happen (how can you trust your wedding dress to this kind of attitude?). So that's the level of 'designer grade craftsmanship' you get from this dressmaker. My tailor kept on shaking her head and kept on saying that they are 'stupid' in making this error, that error...

 

In regards to 'designer grade fabric', they said that even though the fabric contains tiny tiny bit of silk, it is still 'partial silk' so they are not false advertising. So that's the level of 'designer grade fabric' they use.

 

My advise to ladies out there, if you want a really nice main wedding dress that you won't feel embarrassed by, go to a wedding boutique and get the dress from there as you can atually check on things like seams, bumps, boning, bra cups, inner layer, how see through the fabric is, material, stitching, beading, etc. But if you are looking for a dress to trash, for a reception or looking for an 'okay' or 'nice' dress, than go with Jasmine's. If you want an outstanding dress that takes people's breath away, maybe avoid them.

 

But this is just MY experience. Others might have had a wonderful experience with them. You just have to do what feels right for you.

 

I will wear the dress as I don't have money or time to get another dress, the dress is nice, it's just not of a high quality.

Wow I almost went w/ them for a reception dress from all the great reviews!  But they were too cost prohibitive.  If it's w/in 6 months and you paid through credit card I would call your credit company and dispute $300 of the charge.  They misrepresented their product in my opinion and are trying to blame you.  You can send your cc company all those photos as proof. The shoddy sewing I would expect from a ebayed dress but not for 600 bucks.

I think Kittyinheels is one of the very few dresses that hasn't met the quality expectations and I think it's mainly coz of the sheer simplicity of the dress. The fact that there is no ruching, embellishments (except for the neckline) and the type of fabric they used just makes all flaws even more obvious. 

Like PP have stated, weddingbee has lots of reviews of Jasmine's bridal Shop. Here are links to a few:

OK Ladies... I don't know if you remember - but, I got my dress a few weeks back from Jasmine's and I came on here practically crying that I was so unhappy with it... But, I wasn't able to try it on properly - Cause I couldn't do it up on my own... OK - Well I am pleased to say that I found a seamstress here in Korea and took it there and tried it on - AND - I HAD MY MOMENT... Tears and all - Jasmine's did a WONDERFUL job... I love my dress...  It is a touch too big (yay!) So, I am having the back taken out a bit more so the lace can be tied more... And the boning in the front causes a bit of bunching, hopefully when it can be tied tighter - that will help - but that's just me being picky...But other then that - Its awesome!

Thanks Ladies.  Unfortunately, we lost the baby 2 weeks before the wedding.  It's been a bit nuts here on Long Island.  We got back from our honeymoon and within 2 weeks were hit by hurricane Sandy.  I'm just now able to post pics from Gianinar Bridal.  I was extremely satisfied with my dress!  It fit like a glove out of the bag, I just had to have the bustle done.  Sorry again for the delay in posting!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
