      So question, I've been looking at the Reem Acra dresses (what the hell am I thinking you ask.. trouble, I answer).  So when I go on Jasmine Bridal I can,t find anything through the search.  Do any of you gals know if anyone does knock offs of Reem Acra?  Any other alternatives?

       

      Thanks ladies! :)

        Katryne, have you emailed Jasmine's bridal to see if they can do it?

          No haven't, I wasn't sure if they did anything else than on their website.  I'll "try" to narrow it down to one dress (gonna be hard!) and e-mail them.  Thanks! :)

              Does anyone know if any of the dhgate sellers do dresses in the really pretty and delicate chantilly lace? (the pretty scalloped type of lace edging)

                Gorgeous! Do you have any closeups of the bodice?

                  Hi everyone,

                   

                  I am thinking of ordering this dress by Impression Bridal through Jasmine's Bridal. I am thinking of using a designer grade fabric, but unsure about using designer grade craftsmanship. I am getting a quote soon.

                   

                  Can someone let me know of their experience in using premium/designer grade fabric and craftsmanship by Jasmin's Bridal?

                   

                  Also, this fabric is supposed to  be chiffon, but when I tried it on, it felt more like silk (it's quite thick, dense and heavy, but very soft). I dont' know how to describe that to them, has anyone had chiffon fabric that is not light and fluffy like the one I tried on in this dress?

                   

                  Thanks!

                    Hi Kittyinheels, I haven't received my dress yet so I can't really comment on the quality of the fabric. However I have upgraded the materials to designer quality due to the fact that I could def tell the difference between designer vs premium in pictures. My dress is made of tulle and organza and Candy sent me lots of pictures of designer vs premium grade materials. The premium grade looked a lot heavier, stiffer and shinier than the designer grade and that's because it's mainly polyster. Comparatively the designer grade looked a lot softer and lighter due to its partial silk make up. So my opinion is upgrade the materials to designer. With regards to craftmanship, I think you can leave it at premium grade. They will keep working at the dress until you're happy with it.

                      Thanks xbubbix!

                       

                      Just for peace of mind, I ordered with both designer grade fabric and craftsmanship. They quoted me $620 including the shipping. Shipping cost a bit, doesn't it? But the original I tried on at the shop was $2500, and this is before getting rid of the train, etc. I will keep posting how things go with Jasmine's Bridal.
