- Wedding: July 2013
Ok- I should start this off by saying that this is my 3rd dress (roll your eyes now..). To give myself some credit, I never actually got the 2nd dress, David’s Bridal let me trade up as soon as I started having regrets (1 day later…).
My first dress was bought too quickly and ended up being too low-cut for my long torso. Also, I had bought my first dress before doing any wedding planning and ended up wanting something more simple.
So- I got this dress! I still love it (phew!),but I want to make sure its super fitted. This is a pretty popular DB style and to be honest, it doesn’t always look very fitted on most brides.
This first picture is the sample (it was tightly clipped in the back, I was wearing a bustier, and a slip)
Because my hips are kinda out there, I orderd a size larger than my waist.
Here is me in my dress (sorry its not full lenght b/c my memory card was full!). You can see that its not as form fitting. Since this picture, I did get a bustier that won’t show in the back.
((note the beading along the bottom of the chest))
SO when I went back to David’s Bridal to get that bustier (which helped ‘fill it out’ sooo much), I tried on this sash just for kicks. If you look closely it doesn’t quite align with that beading, so I would need a seamstress to do some work.
I LOVE the definition it gives this dress and how it makes it unique (I’m a budding wedding photographer and I see this dress on EVERY photography site…like every day).
So here’s the questions-
Considering this is go time (July 20 2013 wedding) and I have a slight aversion to alterations (my other dress was altered and now I’m anxious about selling it).
-Can my seamstress ensure it will be super tight the day of the wedding so I get the curves I want?
-Should I add this sash (or a similar one)?
-Will it be too much work to tack it on to align with the beading?
-Will it look makeshift or tacky?
Help please! All my friends just keep saying “both look great!”
