@[email protected]:  It’s possible but if it has a lot of detailL things might end up looking a little off.  Take it to a seamstress to get an opinion?

can you post a pic of the dress? It depends on the construction and detailing, somewhat. But a seamstress is the one who can really tell you for sure.

Are you a wedding dress size 2?  Wedding dresses are sized higher than normal dresses, mine was a 10 and I wear a 4/6 in regular clothes.  If you are a size 2 wedding dress, it might be really hard to take the dress in that much without completely altering the design of the dress.

My wedding dress was a 10 when I bought it and I had it sized down to a street size 2 no problem.  It’s a fairly simple dress though. Here’s a picture of it during the fitting, dont mind the snagging and pins at the hip.

Bridal sizing is traditional, not like the “vanity” sizing that’s used by mall stores.  I’m a 0/2 in street clothes and wear a bridal 6.  Altering a 10 down to a 6 is possible.

A friend of mine bought a sample and had it altered from a 10 to a 2.  It looked great on her 🙂  However, her dress was VERY simple, just a satin A-line with a bit of lace at the waist and hem and no beading.  So it’s possible, if the dress if simple enough!

I ahd a friend go form a (wedding dress size) 12 to a (street size) 4. It will depend on the dress. If you were at a quality salon with knowledgable staff, they should’ve been able to honestly tell you whether your dress was alterable that much.
