    I am happy you got it all worked out, even though the dress isn't here for your "fake" wedding date! LOL

    Just as long as you have it before the "real" big day, I am sure that's all that matters!

      Aahhhhhh I just ordered my dress from DHgate. Now the waiting begins!!! Here is the inspiration dress I sent them. I have asked them to change to a corset back, remove the buttons on the back and shorten the train, as I think it is too long for the beach. Hoping it all works out!!

        Ok Ladies, here are the pics. Well just a few. They sent tons of them 

         

        Original Dress

         

        Jasmines Knock-off

         

        Original Dress

         

        Jasmines Knock-off 

         

        I requested some changes and adjustments to the dress.

         

         

         

         

         

        Then I also met my tailor to take d shoulder/neckline measurements to ensure they get it right. see below.

         

         

         

        Besides all of that, I have asked them to increase the sleeve length by 3inches just to be sure. I think the elastic band used makes it "jump" and appear shorter. I'd rather have it too long 

         

        I asked them to confirm that the sleeves will have slits like the original and Lisa says yes (the beading will also be included when all the details have been sorted)

         

        I noticed some pin marks on the right side of the bust region and raised this with Lisa as well. I think they use large pins hence the marks.

         

        All in all I am pretty happy with the dress so far. And very impressed with their response and customer support. I get to chat with Lisa (Jasmines Staff) on gtalk and she is always pleasant and supportive.

         

        That's about it. Long Post 

         

        Oh yeah...dress cost about $361.11 including shipping and I made the 50% deposit/confirmed measurement July 14th. Got the pictures August 10th. They gave 11weeks as the timeline so they are very much on track I think. 

         

        Looking forward to getting pics of the completed dress with the changes

         

        So what do you all think?

          Waiting on pics!!!

          Yeah. That was another reason too. (FI"s outfit I mean) He is wearing a grey suite with a stark white shirt and my maid of honour is wearing blush...so I guess the white will turn out great (fingers crossed) 

           

          Pics posted...I think its still been held seeing as I have been a lurker for months

              Good morning.
               
              I feel I have been very patient about my dress, my expectations and in my emails with you regarding how late the dress is getting to me.  It is now August 10th. You sent me an email on August 6th stating my dress would be finished in 2 days (August 8th) and pictures would follow.  I have not had ANY pictures.  I sent you a deposit back on June 1st in good faith that you would make my dress and get me pictures in a timely manner.  I don't feel you have lived up to your end of our agreement.  I am now forced to DEMAND pictures of my dress by Monday, August 13th by 5pm EST or I am going to have to start a fraud claim with Paypal.  
               
              I found your company through a wedding forum where brides gave honest reviews in dealing with companies in China making wedding dresses.  Your reviews were outstanding, stating that your company had great communication, delivered the dresses in a timely manner and were a pleasure to deal with.  I feel that due to my experience with you so far, I would have to give a less favorable and more negative review of your failure to meet a deadline and lack of pictures and communication.  I am hopeful that you will send my pictures by the Monday, August 13th 2012 5:00pm EST deadline, that my dress will ship next week (between the dates of August 13th and August 17th ), that I will have my dress before August 30th, 2012 and I won't have to report my negative review of your company and services on the wedding forum that spoke of you so highly.
               
               
               

              I hope you used a credit card.  Everyone should know that Paypal DOES NOT GUARANTEE ANY CUSTOM MADE ITEMS.   They will not negotiate to get money back based on custom items.  Use your credit card as a back up.

                  My dress came last night!  Beyond thrilled with the detailing.  Couldn't try it on yet because FI was around and doesn't want to see it on me till our wedding day.  Will be trying it on tomorrow (today is my brother's wedding, no time to try it on).  Can't wait to post pictures for you ladies.

                   

                  Thanks for all the support throughout this process.  They shipped my dress Monday and I received it Thursday.  I would still recommend Gianinar Bridal because the detailing is amazing, I would just suggest you give at least a 40 days window between the date you give and your actual wedding date.  I gave them August 10th as my wedding date (actually is September 30th) and it arrived August 16th.  So 6 days late for my fake date, still plenty early for my real wedding.

                      But still I would be cautious to purchase from this company. They still didn't get your dress to you on time for your "fake" wedding date and were shady with communication.
