    I agree, mine was supposed to be all lace but they instead used beading, and it just gives it a harsher feel. Not soft or flowy.

      The dressmaker I asked to make my lace dress also put beads. At least for my dress, I think they did that to hide the fact that the lace wasn't of high quality...

        Oh well, I guess if I don't like it, I can spend $400 to get Jasmines to make it the way I want (I chose the save money route initially thinking I would spend more if I needed to)...at least there are options:)  I should receive the dress today, maybe I will like it once it's on?!?!

          thanks for the compliments!!

          and for Erika... I didn´t have to make a single alteration! It fit like a glove (even after losing 20 pounds!) the corset back is awesome! :)

            Newbie question for you guys.  I fell in love with a Reem Acra dress "Sunset Boulevard" (you will have to google it since my last post with pictures got stuck in mod)

             

            After I read this thread I contacted Landry, Jasmines, Gianinarbridal,  BabyOnline and almost every vendor recommended on here.  Every one except BabyOnline said "no" since it is too much detailing.  I also found the knock-off online at discount-dress.com and nissenbridal.com and shoppegowns.com

             

            Have you ladies heard of any of these websites?  Should I take a chance with BabyOnline or just give up on the dress entirely?

                  I would say forget it.  You will lose the detailing the way she has done it.  You will probably get a lace overlay dress, v-neck, with some beading on the sheer back.  If you like the general style of Sunset Blvd go ahead.  But if is the flowy-ness and detail you loved forget it.  Good Luck!

                    Omg! I think one-stopos and babyonline are the same seller. Look at Roxy 6997's pictures and mine: the mannequin is the same! Unless they all use mannequins labelled (8 XIN LAI) One-stopos was more expensive? Maybe the seller is the same but they commision it from different factories.

                      I got my dress from BABYONLINE.  Overall a great experience.  I didn't like the beading/lace applique at first but it grew on me and it actually looks nice, not tacky.  TIP: if you MUST have lace, ask for it specifically, or go with one of the "more expensive" quotes such as Jasmine's where you can specify you materials.

                       

                      The fit is great.  The materials seem very nice and the dress has some weight to it.  It looks well made as well.  They made it to my exact request (other than the lace).  Only thing I am going to alter is getting some cups in the chest to add some oomph (because oomph is essential for your wedding day)!!  It may be a little long as well, but I will worry about that later.

                      The only negative I have is that the pictures of the dress before shipping are of crappy quality, which everyone seems to have happen.  Other than that I am pleased and would recommend BABYONLINE.  If you have any questions, I can try to help.

                       

                      Best wishes!
