- Wedding: July 2013
I have my first alterations appointment today and I’m really excited but also a little nervous! I’ve had the dress for awhile now (purchased at a sample sale) but was waiting to see if I got in better shape before taking it in for alterations. Now it’s kind of borderline crunch time for alternations, but I haven’t really slimmed down significantly (yet, but still working on it) so I just need to bite the bullet since the midsection fits fine it’s just slightly snug (if anything, it will just be a smoother fit on my wedding day if I do drop a few pounds) but the shoulders/bust and hemline need a lot of help.
I’m nervous though because I’ve heard so many alterations horror stories! I searched around and found a really highly-rated seamstress, but it doesn’t shake the nervousness. And for those of you who have already had your alterations appointments, anything I should be prepared for? Or remember to ask about? Thanks in advance!
