First, go to a bridal salon and try a mermaid petticoat with the dress.  Often a petticoat will eliminate the need for hemming.  Get the hips taken in for sure – it looks way too loose.

Now, about the bust – do your boobs not fit in the bodice?  Are they like, swimming in the dress?  You could try adding some padding in the boobs and see if that fixes the problem.  🙂  And if they take out the boning, it shouldn’t be a problem.  Boning just makes the dress stay stiff, which is not that important since you have straps.

I agree about the crinoline. But I think if neither of these seamstresses are bridal alterations places, I think you need to go there! In my opinion, no one should be dealing with altering a wedding dress who doesn’t work as a bridal professional. Especially when the dress is so heavily beaded with lace and big changes are being talked about. I do see that the sleeves aren’t laying right but that doesn’t mean it’s because of the boning. Maybe another bee has the same dress and can offer a better opinion than mine.
