I just wanted to repost this post since it seems to have been under review for a long time before posting. (I'm new). Anyways, I really wanted to share some info that I found out while dress searching. Thanks again

I really enjoyed reading all the posts and looking at the original pictures VS. replicas was very informative. It was amazing how the communication stories between buyer and seller became more detailed and specific with every bride. Just shows how valuable your advice has become.
I believe I found my dream dresses and I am currently composing notes of details so I can receive honest quotes. I know that I want to purchase sample swatches to compare. I also want to see finished product pictures. I am in the process of loosing weight so I will need to try on more types of silhouettes to ensure the flattering design. I also want to start communications with the vendors to make sure that we understand each other fully. And yes, I will be measured by a professional!
So far I believe that I will be dealing with either Gianinar Bridal or Jasmine's Bridal. I sent each a quick email on the dress pics I have for a rough idea of price and ability to perform the design.
This is what I learned:
Jasmine's Bridal was very specific on details and expectations. They want a very detailed list of questions and concerns. But they also stated for me to check out their previously made dresses to make sure I felt that their designs would meet my demands BEFORE they would even concider looking at my pictures. You can see their work on their website and also on facebook.
They seem to be pricer but they also appear to push top-line materials.
Gianinar Bridal: I found the dress I love on their ebay store. It is a picture of their actual work! They also have a web site
( I would like this in pink like the picture for the reception dress)
Thanks for letting me share!
