- Wedding: March 2015
Hi guys, I’m new here.
My name is Jessica. I’m 22 and our wedding isn’t until the 22nd of March 2014.
(It was the 21st of Sept 2013. But we found out we’re expecting in July and I need time to drop the baby weight!)
Anyway, here’s my question…
This is my DREAM dress.
It was the first dress I tried on in store and I fell in love with it. It looked amazing on me! Sorry for sounding up myself lol.
Unfortunetly it was way more than what I wanted to spend..
So I gave up for a while and now I’ve been looking at dresses online.
I found that dress on kayleesbridal.com for like $380. But I dare say once I got the dress it wouldn’t be anything like the picture.. So no.
So I started searching on gumtree.com, and I found this.
But I’m not sure if it’s just me or if the material down the bottom looks cheap/crappy quality. I LOVE the bodice of this dress. Especially the sweetheart neckline and the beading..
That’s what I want in a dress.
But that dress is probably a no too.
THIS dress I also found on gumtree.
Anyway… To my question… Finally…
That last dress. Is there anyway (do you think) that a dressmaker could make it look similar to my dream dress. I know it will never be the same, but at least similar… I know I could get it made into a sweetheart neckline. But could they make it poofier? Uhh… I mean blow out more at the bottom? And add more beading? Like down the back on the sides of where it laces up and maybe some more on the breast area? and maybe bring it in at the waist so it’s a bit tighter and gives a better shape?
I realise I’ve got over a year to find a dress. But I think this would be a good buy and it would be a shame to pass it up… Do you agree?
Sorry for such a big post guys… Just wanting to look perfect on the day.
