Hey, we are dress twins! I just bought this dress today. It’s so beautiful I just love it! But I know what you mean about it being long. Even with shoes the sample was 2 inches too long. The store offered to custom order the length so they wouldnt have to hem it. But if they hadn’t done that to begin with she said it would be possible to do. And taking it in on the sides should be no problem. She was saying if alterations had to be done it would range from 150-300. Have you had any luck so far with a seamstress?

I have this dress as well!! Please let me know how the alterations work out for you. Luckily the store ordered me the right hem length 59″ but I don’t know how to get the back bustled?? Did either of you ladies discuss this with your store?

Yeah they did the same for me, they ordered me 60″. I thought that was a cool option. I asked them about the bustle and had her kinda show me. She said they would do 2. 1 for each layer. So the underneath one would hook and then the 2nd layer would hook a bit higher. But it would all ends up evening out on bottom. It looked pretty! Theres a thread on here talking about Pronovias Finisterre(its simmilar to ours) and scroll kinda far down someone posted an example of the bustle.

I am horrible ….I could NOT decide so I actually bought two veils!! here they are. I will sell the one I don’t wear.

 

I liked this because it wa a bit more simple but still had the sequins like on the dress….

I liked this one because it is morbido tulle and the lace looks like it will match the gown

Hi Ladies.

I am in the process of having my Denia altered. I have just had to have the seams taken in and luckily the length was perfect so that wasnt an issue. The bottom layer is being bustled onto itself, but the dressmaker thought that having the top layer bustled would ruin the look of the dress, so she is making a wrist loop for me. I am very excited about that, makes the dress feel princessy 🙂 all up the alterations came to $200 AUS.

Hi girls, I’ve just ordered the La Sposa Denia in UK Size 8 (chart:34,25.5, 37) – my measurements are 33, 26, 37.  I went for the size down as I’m most likely to lose weight from my bust and waist in the run up to the wedding and don’t want too much alterations done and the detail in the lace lost!  Anyway, now I’m worrying that I’ve done the wrong thing – should I have gone for a size 10?  How did your dresses come in, were they true to the guide??  HELP! Thank you!

I have the Denia also and am currently going through some difficulty with alterations.  My advice – go to someone VERY experienced with form-fitting gowns, lace and overlays.  There are a lot of layers and aspects to this dress that others don’t have, so I think lots of seamstresses find it difficult to take this dress in.  My dress is currently on round 2 of alterations after being taken down WAY too small.  I started with a size 4 and needed it taken down to a 2/3 in most areas.  When I went for my first fitting, the dress had been taken down so small I could not even get it zipped!  Now I’m afraid the lace may be damaged in the process of having it unsewn and sewn again.

In total I am having the seams taken in from bust to hip, hem shortened about an inch, bra cups sewn in, overlay removed (able to replace with clear hidden snaps), wedding date and initials embroidered into the hem, military name tape sewn inside back zipper area and back taken from straight across to more of a V shape so it’s lower cut in the back.  I don’t know the total yet, but I believe it will be around $400.

Good luck to you, and again, go to someone very experienced and that has an eye for the ‘lines’ and cut of the dress.  It makes all the difference.

@JBF3112:  Hi, have they managed to remove the overlay? I’m also thinking of removing the overlay….

Thanks for your feedback.
