    Attached (hopefully....) are my pictures of the dress.  If any of you are like me, you need pictures to feel better about "is their stuff really any good".  Sooooo here are mine....I took these quick and straight out of the bag. lol The corset is tied as tight as I could get it down lower and the dress still sticks out in my stomach area but besides that, I shouldn't need any other major alterations.  Overall I am very pleased

     

    Someone asked about the beading and I was actually surprised at how much it had.  It looks like it is all sewn on very well but they did send a bag of "extras" just in case any come off I guess....If I can remember I will take some up close pictures of the details for anyone interested.

     

    This is how the dress arrived, in a small package....but it "grew" once out! haha  

     

     

     

    How the dress arrived....

    The dress hanging up...(I ordered ivory...I swear it looks almost white! I am thinking it's more that diamond white)

    Trying to get a picture of the back...

What do you all think if i would order the dress #1 that i tried and have them do the chest/breast area cut like dress #2. But do u think i should have manufacture in china put the bling crystals like this belt?or should i buy this belt separately and have seamstress in USA do it? i thinks what they do with this belts, they stitched on the material, so it looks like it was there originally. i also like the beading on top on dress #3...i know i kind of confused u all,sorry. I know not all of you will be able to open the attachment, i tried pasting it in the post but it wouldnt let me. Ned you opinion/amd advice. I also believe sometimes less is more, and dont want to overdoit . Thank you all for the input:)

          @erinmc - They don't do photos of the dress before shipping it.  That could be a downfall if you are concerned with seeing it/making changes...

            Actually, they do sent photo before they ship your dress. I have asked them to send me update photo of the dress, but they said they only send picture after they complete it. So now I will just have to sit tight for another 2 weeks and wait it out. :(

                   this is my inspiration dress (I've asked them to shorten the train) hopefully it will come out nice. I will post picture once they send them to me.
                   



                   

                  It's beautiful!!! I also thought about asking them to shorten my train when I order.  How long do you think until you receive? I think with Jasmine's it's about 9 weeks.

                    Can you tell me the designer of the bottom dress or link to where you found it?  Love it!

                    OK Ladies, I need some input. I think I FINALLY made up my mind on a dress. I tried the top one on and loved it except i fell like it needs more on the bottom. I email there pics to jasmine's and the gave me a price of $580. I just need to get my measurements and some reassurance

                    .

                      The designer of the first dress is sweetheart style 5958.

                      http://www.sweethear...ns.com/swh/5958

                      The second one is La Sposa Sala

                      http://www.splasposa...s/sala2012.html

                       

                      I think I'm going with the second one, La Sposa Sala w/Jasmine's.
