- Wedding: September 2013
ok, so i got my dress right after my Fiance popped the question.. went to davids bridal with my BFF on a whim and fell IN LOVE with the structured one shoulder fit and flare (vw351010) – so much so that i walked around the store for an hour while i begged my mother to leave a dr.’s appointment and come see me in it. needs one minor alteration on the strap, from the front looks fine but the back of the strap is loose and bumps off my shoulder blade significantly. regardless, much like how i instantly became inseparable with my future husband, i had to have the dress. so i got it! i havent looked at any other dresses at all since.
the alterations manager at the DB we went to was awesome. he heard me ring the bell, and came out from wherever to bustle the dress up. I WISH I HAD PAID ATTENTION. we were kind of in the moment and being girls, and i totally forgot to ask what he did, but it looked amazing. the ruffles were so perfect.
this is me when i tried the dress on at DB. dont mind my hands, i was mid-freak out going “omg i love this friggin dress!”
its a little long here but i wasnt wearing the right shoes.
this is the back, taken from the DB site. it has a slight train. but i would definitely want it bustled.
any ideas how?? one point? three? french? i have no clue. i wasn’t planning on bringing it back to dB for alterations. i havent checked the skirt but im almost sure it doesnt have anything already in there to be bustled (why cant these things be easy? ha) but i want to know what to ask the seamstress to do… thanks!
