You should call the salon and inquire.  Maybe they can offer to make you a new one with rush if it’s their mistake or the designer’s mistake.

Honestly, I’d return your dress to the shop and have them send you their dress off the rack. How in the hell did the manufacturer manage to add FOUR INCHES to a custom sized dress? Measurements are not arbitrary.

And wow, 4-5 months for a rush? My dress came regular in 4 (though it’s fairly simple).

It can be altered, and how much a dress comes in does not determine the cost. The number of seams that have to be opened determines the cost. It’s amazing what they can do with lace and beading. I never thought that my dress for my first wedding could possibly look the same after alterations because it was SOOOO big, but when it was done, it looked like it was custom made to fit me and the beading and applique was perfect.
