I think your dress is gorgeous and I really didn’t notice it.  However, if it really bothers you, then it won’t hurt to go elsewhere and get a second opinion 🙂

I see what you are concerned about but only because you pointed it out.  That dress is amazing on you and nobody will notice that it isn’t perfectly symmetrical. On the other hand, it is your wedding dress and it should be PERFECT.  Get a second opinion and I’m sure it can be altered.

I see what you mean. I’d try everything to get DB to fix it and if they still won’t, then I’d go to an independent seamstress. This seems like a pretty standard job.

@cherryblossomlove:  Yea I think you’re right. Have you talked to a manager at DB? Maybe they would be more helpful in resolving this issue.

I had to move my face closer to my screen to see what you were talking about, lol.

I second the asking a manager idea!  I am sure you could find an independent seamstress to alter it for you, but I understand your concern there, too, if you don’t already know of a good one.

Is this the same DB that wouldn’t remove the beading for you?

I would find another seamstress.  Doesn’t seem like the person at DB wants to help you at all.  Besides, there are so many horror stories about alterations there I think an independent seamstress is the way to go.

Sandra Denley (sp?) is on your side of town & is highly recommended by the girls on TK.  I have not used her.

I can see it, and honestly it would really bug me a lot. I would take it to another seamstress-why would you even want davids bridal to try to fix it if they don’t see anything wrong with it? I would be worried they’d just mess it up more- but a good seamstress a lot of the times relies on word of mouth and probally would do a much better job therefore.
