    No luck yet as i still am not sure who to go to.

     

    Jasmine's quoted me $650!! Mind you, the original dress was $4000++, but i am not sure if i am willing to pay $650, excluding shipping for a knock off.

     

    I have just emailed dressilyme today with few paints (describing what i would like to do to the dresses etc and the Modified endings with the changes).

     

    I am about to send a message to babyonline to see if they can do the same and give me a quote. My top bodice will have laces over the organza. I am not sure who does the best with lace and organza.

     

    ANYONE, please help??

     

    Thank you

      Vivalicious: To be honest, I think Jasmines, DressilyMe and Babyonline all do fab work, the quality seems to increase with the price so pick whichever one fits with your budget :)

            Which do you think you will go with? I'm torn between babyonline and Dressilyme - Dressilyme has a sale on at the moment but it will probably be over by July when I get my measurements professionally taken

              I agree that Jasmine's is getting expensive. For my dress, they had quoted me $800!!!!! and the original dress was $1020. Needless to say, babyonline made it for $150!!!

                the jim hjelm I like is 4000+,which buying from jasmines will still make a huge difference but still cannot justify spending 650 when I can get both dress and hair and make up packages going somewhere else. I spoke to sunny from babyonline but he described the dress of my skirt wrongly (tulle instead of organza) when asked abt it. So kinda made me doubt it. went ahead with dressilyme. Paris has been so helpful and I was quoted 145(15% off online) and 25 for the changes I would like to make.i heard and read so many things about dressilyme. Going to a professional measurement placr on Monday then im ordrring the dress asap

                  Hi Girls,

                   

                  I'm back! I fell in love with a Vera Wang that I tried at DB. Unfortunately i'm not into spending $1400 on it for the reception. Do you think babyonline can do a great job with the rosettes?

                  Hi girls!

                   

                  I bought a real Maggie Settoro before I knew there were knock offs. I love my dress to death so I'm not too upset about it.

                   

                  The dress I bought was showcased here: http://www.dhgate.co...ot_2539-10-null

                   

                  Judging from my dress vs pictures of knock off, I can see lots of similarities, but quite a few differences (like the placement of flowers, the size of flowers on the back, how the fabric looks on the train). 

                   

                  To some girls, that's no biggie since you save TONS of money from a dress that you may wear for...oh less than 24 hours?

                   

                  To others, if the dress comes in looking 80% of what they imagined it to be...and alterations are expensive...is it worthwhile? 

                   

                  I think if brides can live with the differences from the knock off, it really doesn't matter, because at the end of the day, the dress is an accessory to the bride...not the other way around.

                    Hi, 

                    I saw your posted sample picture, can you post pictures of the final dress?

                     

                    Thanks!
