This best-selling couture Jasmine wedding gown (size 4, ivory) was bought in the states only a month ago. I was visiting the store, saw it on the mannequin, took some pictures to send to friends for approval and then went back the very next day to try it on. I fell in love with its simple elegance right away, so I just bought it and took it home!
It's light, very easy to wear, and provides an extremely flattering A-line silhouette. It's also a very slimming gown due to the ruching on the bodice. With one row of rhinestones at the neckline and a beautiful applique on left hip, it has got just enough sparkle to dazzle, while at the same time remains effortlessly elegant and timeless. There'll be no groans of dismay if you were to look back on wedding pictures wearing this gown!
The only reason I'm selling this gown is because unbeknownst to me at time, my mother had purchased a wedding gown as a suprise gift. Even though I prefer this one to the one she bought me, I just can't say no to her gesture.
This dress was one of 2009's Collection's best-sellers, and is still listed on the Jasmine Bridal website under that category. Please see link:
The model is pictured with a bolero jacket - please note that I did NOT buy the jacket. However, if you go to any bridal shop that carries the Jasmine brand, it can be purchased for about 250 - 300.00 I believe.
This dress new was approximately $1100.00. I bought it for $800.00 plus taxes because it was a sample. It was quickly steamed by them before I walked out of the salon and there ZERO marks on the gown anywhere. It will need to be steamed again as it got a little wrinkly in the suitcase, but it's very clean. The zipper on the mannequin is perfectly fine - just that the mannequin was too big for it to zip up completely.
Gown has zipper enclosure - it would not be difficult to turn it into a corset back to allow for more flexibility or it that is what is preferred. I'm a street size zero with the measurements 32, 24, 34 at 5'5 and I found this gown to be too big by about 2 inches everywhere. Even with 4 inch heels, I would need it to be hemmed by approximately 2 inches. You are welcome to ask any questions or to come by and try it on. Pictures are of the actual gown on the mannequin when I first saw it at the store.
