My dress ripped right before I walked down the aisle. I have tucks and the front one came undone so I was tripping on my dress all the way down the aisle. Good thing someone had a safety pin that we used after the cermony so I could walk without tripping. 🙂

It is a bummer, but the whole is quite small (i cant even see it in the second picture). I know where I got my dress from once you sign the paper and take it out of the store you are responsible to anything that happens to it.  I have a feeling even if you brought the dress back to the store they would not do anything since it has been in your posession.

@betsyface:  hmm I would def speak to the salon and call an alterations shop. From the pictures and the location it looks pretty small, you could prob just leave it, if you have no other options. I do not think anyone would notice. I know a few brides who ripped their dress, stain their dress, even before the wedding night was over, it happens.

Definitely not a fun thing to discover, I’m sure 🙁

Good news is it’s small and in a spot that it likely won’t be seen by people and even less likely to be seen in photos.
I wonder if your seamstress can delicately sew the hole shut? Maybe from underneath so the stitches don’t show much?

@betsyface:  I totally had to shuffle. My dad had been teasing me the whole time up to the day of that I would trip down the aisle. He was convinced that I was going down! 🙂
