GO FOR IT. If you decide you want the Gemma, resell the Romona.

That I don’t know. I am having my gown made, so I haven’t priced alterations. Sorry I couldn’t be of more help. I’m sure you could call or email a seamstress and get an initial quote. Tell her you have a gown that you need to be taken in a few sizes and ask for an estimate.

@chicbride14:  If it can be altered for a reasonable price (I would also suggest checking the measurements provided for the dress and/or a Romona Keveza-specific sizing guide since bridal sizes differ from regular dress size) then I definitely concur with @MlleDarcy: – buy the gown. It is freaking lovely and you can get it for a great price.

I can speak to alterations. I had my dress taken in by 4″ on all sides (it was a Vera Wang Farrah). The good thing about your dress is that your seam is in the back, which makes it easier. What will NOT be easy is the train, because the rosettes will have to look seamless. My alterations – I went with a very talented woman in San Francisco – cost about $1000 altogether and for the amount of work put in, completely worth it.
