    Wedding dresses are made to be altered, so taking the dress in should be no problem for an experienced seamstress.  As far as the keyhole, it shouldn’t be too hard and again, and experienced seamstress should be able to make it look like a natural part of the dress.  Dont be afraid to ask them questions and even do their best to show you what they are talking about and how they are going to do it.  The more questions you get with answers you understand, means you have better communication with the seamstress and the better your dress will come out.  Good luck.  Let us know how it comes out.

    This should be really easy to take in.  No complicated ruching or pleats.

    Are you talking about a keyhole that is just lace or has backing behind it? I’d be worried that it would look mismatched.

    First off, your dress is absolutely wonderful! It looks stunning on you! Second, a good seamstress should be able to alter this no problem. As someone else said, wedding dresses were made to be altered. You’re only taking it in by a few inches, so it should be fine.
