Girrrrrl, NEW DRESS!! You look amazing in that one!

I know nothing about alterations and was basically just lurking. And you look beautiful in the first dress too, though I agree that it should be altered to fit you better. You have a very lovely figure and it is not doing you justice.

But….. NEW DRESS. Omg. I am honestly in love with how you look in that one, haha! I am not sure if it is in your budget, or if you personally like it as much/more than your original dress but. It looks incredible on you. Please start another thread to ask the other bees what they think! I am biased and you definitely have to go with what *you* love, but yeah. Just wow!!!!!

 If you have to spend that much in alterations (equivalent to a new dress), then why not just get the new dress and try to sell off the original dress?

Hi Bee!!

First off, you look stunning in both dresses! Honestly, I think if you do your research you can find someone who can fix the dress for you, though I don’t know at what cost. I didn’t think the dress looked bad except for the hip area, but it’s all about how you feel in it.

With that said, depending on how much it’s going to cost, that new dress is STUNNING on you!! It fits you like a glove and your silhouette is to die for. I’m not a big fan of buying a new dress normally (because I’m frugal), but if you really don’t feel comfortable in the other one and it’s going to cost a lot to get it altered, that new dress is definitely a winner too! It hugs your frame beautifully and totally goes with your forest wedding. I’m in favour of new dress, BUT your original dress is gorgeous too so either way you will look amazing on your wedding day! Let us know how it goes!! Glad you got them to agree not to charge you the $600, you go girl!

So sorry that you are faced with this dilemma and extra expense but on the upside the “new dress” is breathtakingly gorgeous! Maybe this is the universe connecting you with the perfect dress (but in a shitty, stressful way 🙂)

Yay for getting the fee back!!!

The new dress is gorgeous, but I would chop off the sleeves. They just kind of hang there.

But I also think you could fix your current dress for the $600 you already budgeted.
