I’m new to weddingbee, my fiance and I will be getting married August 24, 2013 in our beautiful town of Sandpoint, ID. We are having a barn wedding near a lake. I also just said yes to my dress! I’ve added some pics. The dress is Allure 8756, and I just LOVE how it looks! The sample was in white, but I ordered ivory. I live in Idaho, but my family is in Oklahoma, so finding the dress was a bit tricky. I tried this dress on with my mom, dad, and mother in law during my parent’s visit. I liked the dress a lot, but wanted my sister’s opinion. She came to visit and we went shopping with the future sister. I loved the dress again, and so did they. However, when my mom was visiting she pointed out that it may need hemmed (I’m 5’3″, and I was standing on a little platform thing). I was so excited and happy that I found the dress that I totally forgot to ask about hemming the dress… Yikes! The sample I tried on was huge on me, so I’m wondering if my size will make a difference in the length? Also, I read on here that it could be tricky to hem it later due to the details on the bottom. Any ideas or tips?
Lastly, here are some pictures of our barn venue.(Along with the fiance, dog, and sister.)

Welcome to the Hive!
That dress is AMAZING! They should be able to order it in a length that is good for you. Don’t forget to take in heals the same height that you plan on wearing at your wedding when ordering.
Love, love, love the barn. I really can’t wait to see what else you have planned for all of this. Congrats! Happy planning!

first of all, you look amazing in the dress. 2nd, yes it probably will be difficult to hem with the beading at the bottom. If that is a belt on your waist, they can remove some length at the waistline maybe. A good seamstress will be able to figure it out for you, I’m sure you’re not the only one in the world to have this problem!

Firstly, you look STUNNING in that dress! Secondly, I agree that if the flowers on your waistline are on a belt or removeable, a seamstress can raise the skirt upwards, so that you don’t have to play with the details at the bottom of the dress! GORGEOUS GORGEOUS!! 😀

if you really need a hem, they can take it from the top, a little more expensive, but it just depends on the seam and the seamstress. Davids bridal quoted me $120 for a hem from the top on a pretty elaborate dress davids bridal galina sv415. But-they have lots of shoe options too, you’ll just need to re-try once you get your size on. I noticed that with the size 8, my dress is really LONG and with the size 6, a little shorter, so you might have that going for you 🙂 my fi is my height, so I’ll need a hem, since I’ll be wearing flats or 1.1/4 in heels. It’s funny how you have such a hard decision like choosing a dress, then you have to thik about all the alterations, shoes, and heights, bra, slip, etc. ps, if you have a poofy slip on, that might help too… one lady at DB said they had a bride wear 2 slips for extra poof. lol.

Hi! I have this dress too! And yes, the seamstress will hem the dress from the waist to raise the hem.

@Idahobride07: I LOVE barn weddings. I haven’t ordered a dress yet (much less gone shopping) so I can’t help with the length question, but I had to pop in and say how much I adore your venue. Do you have pictures of the inside?
