- Wedding: May 2012
Hello hive! I’m so excited – I picked up my dress after getting the alterations done and I’m very pleased with the result.
I wrote about my dress regret and ‘dress drama’ previously here: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/help-keep-my-current-dress-or-buy-a-new-one
The before pics are from the first time I tried it on in the bridal shop. The after pics are from earlier this week, when I picked it up after alterations.
I’m so pleased with the result and now I can’t wait to wear my dress! I wasn’t really sure about the long train after I purchased the dress (it was the only thing I didn’t like about it), but she lopped off about 20 inches from the back and it’s so much lighter now. And, as a bonus, now we can use the extra material for a ring bearer pillow.
I also feel as though the dress accentuates my height more, and it’s more proportioned in general. I had felt like I was swimming in the dress before. I also love how she took in the sides of the dress all the way to the floor to make it a more slimming A-line look. Yay!
I still love the David’s Bridal dress that I was lusting after for months, but to me this is now a very unique dress – a one-of-a-kind, if you will – that I’m finally looking forward to wearing!
