    Okay, I've bit the bullet and submitted my order to Jasmine's for my dress! I tried on dresses this weekend and I fell in love with this dress:

    Based on all the glowing reviews for Jasmines and their very prompt responses to my inquiries, I am going for it.  So excited!

        I love it. It's gorgeous. There's a few differences, which you may or may not want to change. I had to google to find more pictures of your inspiration dress:

         

        1. The sweetheart neckline is more rounded in yours

        2. The ruching is a little more prominent in yours (i.e left bust)

        3. Will you be wearing an underskirt? This may make the bottom a little more full

        4. The corset back seems a little short (this is more of a practical issue). Are they putting in a zipper also?

          I am a bit afraid of zippers and buttons, do you think it would be wise for me to switch over to a lace up corset back with this dress?

           

          Also, do I need to order the underskirt for this dress?  I don't know if it's necessary with all those ruffles. Input greatly appreciated!

            Uhulra, I think it can work with a corset style back. You will jave to decide if you want it to extend past your waist like the original. If so, I would definetly ask of a modesty panel. I haven't seen that many organza dresses that are lace ups though. Do you know if the dress is made of organza? Perhaps you could do a google search and see if you can find examples. I'll do one later and post some pictures if I find any. I don't think an underskirt is neccesary. I only chose it coz I'm really clumsy and will need the skirt to stick out away from my legs so I won't trip!

              I'm on my ipad so havent figured out how to attach pictures. Maggie sottero does a tonne of dresses with corset backs in organza (I think I have been living under a rock). Have a look at the Maggie Sottero Monet- the train is similar to your inspiration dress and it has a corset back.

                @ xbubbix   Than you for you help on this.  I think I am just afraid about measurements not being exact and it being too tight when I get it but I should just trust the measurements I got and hope for the best. I do have a tailor, but I did try on this dress at the Pronovias store this past weekend and honestly I don't want to mess up the essence of this style of dress by putting in the lace up corset.  I will stick with the original style of the zipper with fabric buttons.

                I am very excited to see what they come up with! I ordered the dress in off white, premium grade for everything and no changes to the design.

                  Hello ladies! I'm new here. I'm in the very early stages of planning our wedding. I was wondering how much more or less are these inspired by designer gowns. They all look beautiful and we are on a super tight budget. I still don't know what I'm going to do but I'm stoked to have found this board.

                    I think overall the prices vary but I know jasmines is a bit pricier, but their quality of work is much better. I requested a quote for allure 2515 and they quoted 320 including shipping
