    My dress looks like this overall. But these pics were taken before they took off some beads and crystals. I just hope that the length and size are alright.

        looks lovely.  Don't worry about length and size, they will get it right if you indeed sent in the correct measurements.  My dress fit perfectly, except I found I couldn't depend on the bra cups they put in the dress because it was too big. (I measured myself with a bra on that was NOT padded but the fact that it held "the girls" up probably made a difference).  I tried on the dress with my own strapless bra and it filled out fine. I also purchased some of those inserts (chicken filets) so I don't have to wear a "double strapless bra".   Your dress may not have that as it's not strapless.

No problem zipping the dress myself, but will need help with the buttons :)

           

          Congrats, they executed this dress perfectly.  You're going to look fantastic on your wedding day!

          The last time I posted, I had a problem with too many beads and crystals around the neckline. I asked Jasmine's Bridal to take off some beads and the dress looks really nice now. They posted the dress this week, so I should get it soon! I used designer grade fabric and craftsmanship, the dress was ordered on 5 Sept. I am very happy with their service as they have sent me heaps and heaps of photos (8 separate times, each time after each process for changes and modifying). James from Jasmine's has been quite helpful. He was quite realistic about what could be achieved and what couldn't be achieved which was good for me (so I didn't end up having unrealistic expectations and have major disappointment). Having said that, I have to actually see the dress to give overall feedback for the service.

            Thanks! I'm excited. I also received my jewelry on the same day so I'm all set!

              the reality pic of the white blond girl trying on the dress i also found online and she looked sooooo beautiful in it. i think im gonna go with that one! what do you girls think?

                Also for ladies who haven't put in their orders for Jasmine's yet, keep in mind that it is now busy season.  Also, all Chinese knock off shops will be closed for the entire month of February for Chinese New Year.  Also the price of your dress will be slightly higher since it's busy season now. They are taking up to 3 days to answer emails so keep patient, it will be worth it. Dress prices will vary depending on the season your order them and demand. Also I ordered an underskirt ( I don't have it on in the photo I took of myself in the dress) and had them add a bustle to my dress so it cost a bit more than the base price. I did not order rush delivery and there are no customs issues or paid if you are getting it delivered in the USA.

                  Ok, I hate to be a Debbie Downer here - But I just received my dress yesterday, and need to vent a bit... Now to be fair - I was alone and couldn't put my dress on completely - like tie the lace back....or put the sash on... But, I could do up the zipper, and the dress looks REALLY frumpy.... I'm stressing A LOT - but, I need to try it on with someone else and definitely need to have it taken in - It just feels like its REALLY heavy....  Anyways, I will keep you updated - 2 months before my wedding, I was just hoping and praying that this dress that I never tried on before would go on and give me that "its the one" feeling I haven't had yet.... Definitely not the case... :(   Eek!

                    This is the danger of not having tried on the dress style before. I thought I saw that you had never tried on any wedding dress before, is that correct? In any event, wedding gowns are heavy but I am sorry that you feel frumpy in yours. That can't be a good feeling. Sometimes dresses you see photos of aren't exactly what you imagine when you put it on in real life. I swore up and down I would go with an A-line cut dress and had several picked out to try on before my first visit to a salon and I ended up hating them on me and the bridal consultant surprised me with a few mermaid/trumpet cut dresses and I ended up finding my dress!  Maybe definitely get a second opinion and help getting the dress on fully. I am really sorry you aren't happy though :(
