jennz91:  Who told you it was “way too much work” to alter the neckline and add beading? A good seamstress can do it.  Get a second opinion.

jennz91:  Definitely talk to others. Obviously, it’s not that she can’t, it’s that she won’t.  Even though you’d be PAYING her to do it.  So weird.  The seamstress I used specialized in wedding dresses and did this kind of work all the time. Try to find a seamstress who loves working on wedding dresses. Good luck! I had to drive an hour one way to my seamstress but she was worth it!

jennz91:  Definitely get another opinion from another seamstress! For whatever it’s worth, I think your dress is lovely and fits you beautifully! I absolutely love the buttons down the back! I do think it would look so elegant with the new neckline that you posted, though!

If you really want the crystals, take it to another seamstress for another opinion. But I think it’s beautiful as is and altering the neckline would make it even more stunning. I don’t think the beading is necessary. The dress is gorgeous either way!

And might I add that it fits you very well. I love the back

Your dress looks a little tight across the hips.  Very beautiful lace.  I’m sure it will turn out fine

I will say that when I first saw the pics I litterally said WOW out loud. It is BEAUTIFUL! Wow..just wow!! I love it. 

When you ordered it, did you ask if they can do it? Usually that is something done/requested when ordering.

If not, definitely take it to get other quotes. I would think the neckline would be pretty easy.  

What did you want done with the sleeves?
