i am definitely nervous about mine! i don’t need much alteration, but want to make my straight-across neckline into a sweetheart, so if the seamstress cut the sweetheart wrong or bad or whatever, it’ll pretty much ruin my dress since the neckline is pretty much the focal point of a wedding gown!

uh oh! I have been getting anxious lately…..because my dress is also organza and I keep reading about the issues involved with it. Is it true some wrinkles in organza will never come out? AGH!

Oh my gosh, I am so obsessive about my dress.  I am super paranoid about alterations.  I actually didn’t get any.  I just dropped it off to get pressed and that freaked me out!

Your alterations will be fine as long as you work with a professional seamstress that also posses the proper sewing machines.


Shop around and you will be a beautiful bride with you wonderful gown.

I am nervous about mine too!

My seamstress kept saying “there is so much fabric!” repeatedly while trying to figure out my bustle. (5 foot layered tool train)

I get to see the final product tomorrow (2nd fitting) so I am hoping I will be more calm after I see her again tomorrow!
