Go to a seamstress. Many dresses have seam allowance and can be let out

I wore a sample dress, and it was PERFECT. Before I brought it home the bridal shop had it professionally cleaned and even offered free alterations (I know… WHAT!?). It was a bit snug when I bought it, but as opposed to taking a chance on altering (and messing up) the dress to fit me, I altered myself to fit it 😉 lost 20 lbs and it actually ended up being a bit too big in the shoulder area, but it all worked out alright! Well the dress worked out… The marriage crashed and burned. Lmfao

I ended up getting an almost $5,000 Pronovias dress for $1,200 and was able to put the money that was saved elsewhere, namely photography. Also, October of 2016 is actually verrrrry close when talking wedding dresses. Your only choice might just be a sample dress…
