If the dress is big enough that it can’t be altered, then the shop messed up BIG time. Since your wedding is far off, I’d complain to the shop and get them to order you the correct size.  It seems like it was their fault for ordering a dress so big.

Hi MissBubbly,

I registered on here so I could leave you a post. I ordered my AA 867 dress from Belles Bridal in Woking, Urrey, almost 2 months ago. They said they can definitely take it in if needed….. So I don’t know why the seamstresses are saying they can’t! Where did you order your dress? Try calling belles, I can give you their number is you like? Or you can google. Seriously tho, don’t panic! Someone will be able to fix it.

I agree with lyndzo to – the store messed up!

I am a size 16 & ordered mine in a 12! Got down to about a 14 now but still lots to go so wish me luck!

(honestly, don’t stress – you’ll sort it out).

I second getting it returned. My cousin lost a massive amount of weight for her wedding, and she ended up having to pay five hundred dollars in alterations fees, so if they have to cut it and do massive job it may end up costing you. If it was the shops place they should fix it.

AA kinda did the same to me. She ordered for my largest measurement (my hips) but when it came in it was so big. Then I’ve lost a few pounds, not even a lot, and the dress is huge. I don’t think I can affford the alterations I’ll need to get it to fit properly. 🙁

MOST dresses, or a talented seamstress, can fix just about anything. Make sure you try seamstresses that specialize in gowns since their construction is different than normal clothes.
