My dress was ordered early and arrived in February, but I had to take it down a size. Alterations were done June 14th – it took them two weeks to have it ready. We did the whole thing in one appointment – take it in, hem, bustle. I absolutely LOVE my bustle. It is called a royal bustle. Worth every extra dollar I paid for it. And I am actually looking more forward to wearing it bustled than with the train down! It is supposed to be reminiscent of victorian gowns. Here is an example. Oh, and they are SUPER easy to do up.

I have my next fitting in 2 days! A little nervous about it as they were supposed to take it in a lot. So to original poster: I’m living proof that you can take it to alterations and they won’t blink twice if you ask them to take it in a bunch. I think it’s the other way around that is more of a problem. How much have y’all spent on alterations? My place is charging me an arm an a leg.
I think that after this coming fitting I’ll only have one left! We leave Aug. 5. So crazy.
Anyone here flying with their dress?

I just had my fitting last Saturday, the salon ordered my dress nearly TWO sizes too big (as I suspected – I think they did it on purpose). I go back on July 31st to try it on again and make sure the alterations worked. I’m nervous!

I just had my first dress fitting tonight and my dress fits great! I’m petite, so of course I need about 6 inches taken off the bottom. My bustle was complicated because my dress had assymtrical gathers along the back, but it will look beautiful bustled up.
