This is the dress I want, I love the puffy style so pretty. :D I also requested photos but she keeps ignoring me, I read that sunny doesn't post pics this is who im working with through emails about my product, But I wish she did!!


Pretty!

I'm sure it will be fabulous! Yeah- my dresses are fairly detailed so I'm thankful Jasmines has a "mid production photo" option. Just in case there are parts I need them to change/fix.

Can't wait to see it on you when it arrives! When's it's ETA?

    The ETA proposed is August 13 which still give me 30 days to find a dress if this one is just horrible and I cant do anything with it.

      Definitely- if you don't do research and choose a vendor that has done a ton of brides and who are happy- it could be a nightmare. Allowing time for alterations and going with a respected company (even if it's a bit more expensive) is soooo worth it! I'm thrilled with Jasmines and can't wait to order and receive my dresses!

        Hi, I am new as well. I got my dress made by Carabridal and I absolutely love my dress. I am so happy I went this route. I just did not see anything I truly loved in my price range at the bridal salons. This is me at alterations. The bust was slightly big so she will take it in and I am a bit hippy, so my seasmstress is going to let it out a tiny bit. So glad she is doing it as a gift. Definitely budget for alterations... If I didn't have my wonderful seamstress, I probably would have paid some $$$$ to have my dress perfect.

        HI,

         

        I am currently looking at a dress I really like from babyonline through dhgates. Anyone have experience with them? My main concern is the beading... that it might not be the same.  :wacko:

         

        However it is quite cheap, and if ever I do not like it it wouldn't the end of the world... I could always try selling it. Just looking for some feedback.

         

        Thank you 


        I'm lucky I'm in love with my best friend

        There are a lot of brides who have used them for simpler dresses... Many have pics. Read through this thread and I'm sure you will see lots!

          @tygrrlily @tygrrlily Hello Girls, this dress topic (among all that goes on the for a DW) is driving me very confused. I had almost made an order for the Maggie dress at $1,700 and after reading this thread I dont think i will move forward with that (saving cash will help tons)

           

          If I understood well all your comments I can look for dresses online (see below websites mentioned), send pictures (if I have a special photo request perhaps will pay an extra fee $30 for the pic), order and also ask for pictures in the mid production?

           

          If I get a good deal I might end up buying two gowns (1 for my wedding day and the second for my TTD as my photographer suggested that) I was not looking at two gowns for the original cost of just one, but now that I found this boards, I feel more comfortable as I was super skeptical with ordering dresses online and I am a chicken when it comes to this specially because the boutique lady told me that I am just on time to order my dress since it takes 6 months to arrive and if I dont order they wont commit (very scary because dress will come in Jan/feb and wedding is in April), any ways after reading enough I would feel comfortable and more learning that i will save $1,000 or about.

           

          The question for you girls is ...which of the sites above do you recommend ? If I also provided the wrong links please advise as of which is the correct one. Thanks so much for your help, I appreciate it..

           

          ahh one more thing @kmk2016, Are you using the beauty salon from Sensatori on your wedding date to get your hairdo and makeup or will you bring someone from outside?

          I am thinking to bring beso drides http://www.yucatanhair.com/ after I read so many good things about them and have been communicating with them but I am not sure yet who I will use and if it is neccesary to bring someone from outside (I read the board about the Azul  beach bride who brought them). I am just not sure if I would like to have air brush or just prime (will have to try it on me first). Also I also feel super bad because I bringing all my outside vendor (photo, DJ) and not sure if many brides do that.

          Thank you once again :) Linaco

          Jasmines, Cara and dressily are the most talked about here and on other sites. jasmines is great for more intricate beading and lace. You have the wrong link though- it's jasmines bridal. Read through this thread as much as possible- it will give you a ton of information. I also recommend reading up on weddingbee forum where there are a lot of posts in super active forums.
