Your dress is much more flattering then the sample IMO.  I think it’s lovely.

I think I am slow today. Is the first picture the one of the dress you actually have?

I think the dress you chose looks stunning!  It isnt plain at all.  I love the straps and visual interest the detail provides.   I think you can trust your tailor to make it more fitted like the sample however honestly it looks great even now!!!

I love the straps on your gown…I’d make sure to wear my hair up so everyone could see them!

@Bainise2013:  I think the dress you chose is beautiful. I may be biased since your dress looks VERY similar to the dress I wore for my wedding. I think after the alterations are done (fitted, hemmed and steamed) the dress will fit perfectly. I love the straps since they help to make the dress stand out and be more memorable.

::throws cold water in your face:: It’s BEAUTIFUL! You must have drank some crazy juice for breakfast.

Anyway, the last picture looks like it fits you much better in the bodice then the sample did, which is the harder part to alter. & for an unaltered dress in general it looks like it fits you really well (mine wouldn’t even stay up on its own before alterations). You seriously have nothing to worry about – if you’re really stressing then have them do the first fitting asap. You have plenty of time to do fittings until it fits just how you like it. It does not look plain at all, it’s a gorgeous gown!

Your dress is beautiful and even without alterations it looks really good on you! Just wait until after alterations and you will feel so much better!

Wait what?! The one in the last picture is WAY more flattering than the sample dress (2nd to last pic). The sample dress in the 2nd to last pic is too small on you, and not just in the chest. The dress in the end fits and looks beautiful. Just needs the bottom shortened and apparently also the straps. 

Try not to get too hung up on not having the first dress. I know you like it but I think the pickups are a little overboard.

@Bainise2013:  I think your dress is very very pretty!! And it’s definitely the most flattering on your body.It is a little big now, but no worries. Those seamstresses will make it gorgeous. I was swimming in the top of my dress when it came in and you’d never know by the time the second fitting came around.

Don’t go as fitted as the sample, though. I think that was TOO tight. Give yourself a little breathing room.


The straps are the best and fanciest part of your gown, so make sure you wear your hair up!! If you cover them, then I can see where you might feel that the dress is too plain. But with your hair up, some sweet accessories and a pretty veil — it’s a homerun!!!
