This past weekend I had my first dress fitting. I knew I had lost some weight since I first bought my dress but what I didn’t realize was how this would affect my alterations. Basically the lady told me the alterations would cost me well over $300 and my dress wouldn’t look the same since they’d have to take off quite a bit. Luckily for me, they offered to exchange my dress for a size 6, my original dress was a 10. It fit perfect. Although it won’t be a brand new dress which I’m bummed about, it saved me much money and they promised to have it in new/perfect condition. So we’ll see, I go back in a month!
With my RED shoes!!

Beautiful! So nice of them to offer the trade of sizes. Do you have plans to wear a veil?

You look gorgeous in your dress!!!
I have my first fitting tomorrow, and I hope I don’t run into the same situation of the dress not looking the same after alterations. We ordered a size 10, although I was only a street size 4. After 6 mths in Iraq, I’m now a 0. I really hope they can figure something out!

@pengoala: I know I was actually surprised they offered to do that. Yes I will be wearing a birdcage veil!

Thanks ladies! Actually my dress has a train but they pinned it up to show me how it’ll look with a bustle. The back of the dress is my favorite part!!
@Nati-Lyte: Oh wow you went down quite a few sizes, good luck hopefully they can do something for you. Mine wasn’t so easy to make smaller b/c of the corset in the back.

You look beautiful in your dress! Sorry you had to trade your original, but congratulations on your weight loss (if intended). That was nice of them to explain the effects of alterations and offer you another dress. I’m sure it will be perfect!

So glad that you got to swap dresses without a problem!
