    youre so tiny that dress needs to be take in- a lot!

     

    The dress is so pretty- and a well fitting dress will look absolutely amazing!

     

    If the alterations are going to be more expensive than another dress, then mayde rethink it!

    I like the detail on top and I think the dress will fit the theme. It does need to be taken in a lot. Shop around for different alteration quotes and decide from there.

    Whoa, I voted love the dress and first flower, but now after I read all the alterations you want to do to, isn’t that going to cost an arm and an leg?

    The dress would work but it is going to need a lot of alterations.  That will be expensive.  I think it would be less headache if you buy another dress.  You could probably sell this dress just as easily as you bought it.  BTW – both flowers are pretty.  I like the first one best with the dress.

    and I would choose the first flower

    Honestly, it doesn’t scream ‘summery, outdoor wedding’ to me. It looks like it would suit a very formal wedding.

    I love the dress. I think that it will look pretty but before you commit, you may want to get quotes on how much the alteration will cost you. If its going to cost more than buying a whole new dress, you will be better off selling it. If it costs less, I say you can rock it….with the first flower!

    I honestly think you should sell this dress and buy another one – there’s a TON of alterations the need to happen in this dress – especially at the bust, and that could wind up being very expensive with the pleating and what not.

    Start over with another dress, maybe one of the more ‘casual’ dresses from DB or other lines?  There are tons of ‘summery’ options out there and to be honest (again), this doesn’t look very summery to me.

    Good luck!

    Look at the watters Renee or Natalia dress. You can find them online for 300-400 but in the salon theyr’e 12-1400. They would be really pretty with your tiny figure.
