So I finally found a dress, but if you knew me you would know I dont take things at face value. The cut and fabric of the dress I chose is exactly what I wanted…..it just needs a lil bit of “me”. My dress is the Galina CPK440 by David’s Bridal. I want to amp it up. I’m not very fond of the middle of the beaded belt, so I’m covering it up with a floral sash, letting some of the bling peak through as the border. And I would like to add petals to the bottom. like this:
Or maybe some bling on the underlying layers of tulle? So I shimmer but not so bright.
My question is would this look off? And if you are from the NYC/Jersey area, do you have a dress maker or seamstress you would recommend for this.
Have you gotten your dress design altered? Show us some pictures!

@Miss Moxy: It would be helpful if you would post an actual picture of the dress you have bought so we can see the difference when comparing the dress you have posted.
Anything is possible when you alter a dress.

My dress was altered during production by the designer so it’s a bit different than what you’re planning. However, I wanted to share just so you have another person’s experience.
Originally, I fell in love with Casablanca 2010. However, I didn’t really want a strapless dress. Thankfully for me, Casablanca lets you do modifications as long as the changes are one of their dress designs. I ended up combining the 2010 with the top of the 1857 (just in lace rather than satin).
In real life, my dress ended up going from this:
I love it and am so happy with my decision. Good luck on whatever you decide to do!

@Miss Moxy: It’s a little hard to tell with the picture you uploaded, I’d like to see the front of it so I can decided how I feel about the sash!
