do I try the dress on in the store or just examine it and take it home? I don’t plan to have them do the alterations as my aunt is an experienced dress maker (she does wedding dresses from scratch).
Part of me thinks I should just try it on and make sure it is the same dress.
P.S. My aunt came dress shopping with me and honestly said that the material alone would cost me the amount that the dress was sold, so that is why I purchased as opposed to her making it.

@MrsTickledPink: Try it on at the shop. They have the best 3 way mirrors.

i agree try it on. that way if something is wrong with the dress its easier to see. if you take it home and find there is a big mistake they might not be willing to fix it for you because you took it home.

@MrsTickledPink: You should totally try on the dress in the store! 1. So you can examine it and make sure it’s what you remembered and 2. bc it’s the first time you will try on THE actual dress you will get married in! I know for me the sample dress I tried on was waaaayyyyy too small and it was a different color. I never cried when I picked out the dress but I cried when I tried on my actual dress.
Congrats on getting your dress!

Try try try! My salon does not do alterations either, but as soon as you walk out of the store with the dress, that’s it – so I wanted to be sure. It also helps to have the consultant look over it with you and make any suggestions on what should be altered. The sample dress I tried on was way too big so I was really excited to finally have it in my size. I love my dress so any excuse to put it on is fine with me! 🙂
