Wow! So will it need much in terms of alterations?

I tried that dress on, it is so pretty! It looks great on you, all that sparkle is going to photograph beautifully! Sorry for the commission focused consultant, glad you got what you wanted!

ChristinaC598:  Gah super pushy sales consultants are the worst. And when you’re trying on wedding dresses that’s even worse. Sorry you had to deal with that :(<br /><br />

But, on a brighter note, your dress is stunning! I love dresses with contrasting sashes, it really gives them a point of difference. Plus all the sparkles on your dress are really going to shine bright in your photos 🙂

You look great!

So, just curious, did you ever try on the dress you loved for so long or is it a distant memory now?

I’m happy you knew better and ordered a size 10!  I was only asking about alterations because it looks like it really fits you well as-is.  I know alterations are supposed to make it “fit you exactly perfectly,” but sometimes I try to remember that it’s a dress.  For example, I don’t expect my bridesmaids to get alterations… just buy a dress in your size (especially considering the type of dress I think I’ll be asking them to wear).  Obviously wedding dresses are quite different, but sometimes I do wonder if a bride with hefty alterations was told to purchase the wrong size in the first place.

Lovely. I like the sparkle and the way the lace lies on the floor
