They might take out several layers of crinoline underneath?

It doesn’t look too complicated. All the have to do is reform the sides and perhaps shorten the waist. I wouldn’t be worried.

I had to order a size 18 dress to fit my breasts and the rest of me is not that size- they’ll alter the waist on mine, too.  I don’t know how, but I think that’s normal to do.

You will totally be fine. I had a ballgown for my first wedding and had to order a 22 (ouch) to accommodate my chest, and then I also lost 15 lbs, so the waist had to come in like 4 dress sizes (to at least a bridal size 16 if not smaller). Those seamstresses work magic. I still can’t figure out how they took so much fabric out of the bodice, yet the extensive applique looked flawless.

@mrsSonthebeach:  That’s wonderful news for the OP, would you happen to have pics of your before and after? I bet that would ease her mind.

@WhiteWedding:  No. I have no before pictures from my first wedding. It was a time before cellphone cameras, so there are no photos of it until my wedding day.
