I have lost about seven pounds since I purchased my wedding dress. The dress fit like a glove when bought it, but now it’s not as flattering. My mother says it doesn’t look too big at all, but I feel like it doesn’t look as good on as it once did. My mother insists that if I get it taken up, it will ruin the dress. It has some thick intricate beading around the waist and that is what worries her. The shop that I bought it from no longer does alterations but has suggested someone who does work on formal wear. I guess my question is, has anyone ever known someone that has had their wedding dress ruined by having it altered? Any suggestions on what I should do?
