I think your new dress is beautiful. You should have definitely let your friends dad know that he altered the dress wrong. I am not sure if you can go back and tell him now. He may have had a solution to save the original dress.

you look AMAZINGGGG.  by the way, yes the smallest part was in your ribs, but if you DID happen to lose some weight (and you’re the type to lose it in your top half first) some of the dress may fit a little better…MAYBE…i’m not sure :/

but regardless you look amazing.

OMG that new dress is ridiculously amazing! Where did you buy it from? I’m sure it was a very stressful situation; it sounds terrible and you have my sympathies, but it sounds like you’re handling a bride’s worst nightmare just beautifully.

I am so sorry that you are going through this stress. It might not hurt to nicely say something since your friend will notice anyway that you are wearing a different dress right? And even more so if you were charged. Either way that dress is beautiful and making me rethink what exactly I want for a wedding dress. It is perfect on you!!

you don’t need this added stress.  this new gown looks amazing you though.  is it similar to the other dress?

does this guy know that he screwed up your dress?  does your old dress zip up?  i know that a lot of brides, myself included, say that they couldn’t breathe in their dress for a couple of hours until the material relaxed a bit.  i felt that my seamstress took my dress in too much and i had a hard time breathing but by the end of the ceremony, i didn’t even notice.  can you try wearing your dress to see if it relaxes/stretches out?

i hope you didn’t pay him.

Oh lordy, this is my latest nightmare. I am terrified that something will happen to my dress before the wedding and I’ll have to find another in my size super-quick. Even though mine was off-the-peg at DB, it’s being discontinued so I’d still have to start all over. It freaks me the hell out. What if my parents’ house catches fire, or floods? What if the cat gets into the locked room where my dress is kept and gnaws through the garment bag and claws the dress or pees on it? Aggghhh…

I’m so sorry for what happened to your first dress. I agree with PPs, you do need financial compensation for that dress. If he wrote your measurements and the dress does not match those measurements, then he can’t make the argument that you must have grown or something. Pursue it after the wedding. And in the meantime, get married in that stunning new dress – you look lovely and everything will be all right :o)

umm i want that dress! haha i think you should tell the guy who did it.  Its your WEDDING dress for crying out loud..  at this point i am not trying to be my overly sensitive self when it comes to my wedding and “breaking news” to people such as adding an uninvited guest to my wedding and having to tell them “no sorry, they werent invited”.  When it comes to your dress you just dont mess with that…i would “hope” that he would offer to pay for a new dress (less strain on you financially) that is the only way i could see this as getting any better unless you just wore your originial one and just felt uncomfortable.. it depends on how tight it is… is it so unbearable that you could not last 5 minutes in it?  I dont know, if i loved my original dress that much i might suck it up through the ceremony and maybe buy a cute rehearsal dress…  but the new one you have is so pretty!

You look gorgeous in your original dress…but the new one has that WOW factor! I reallllllllllllllllly love your new one. I love the necklace you have on with it too. I think a small silver one just wouldn’t have the same effect.

I would have simple earrings (if any) and maybe shoes the same colour as the necklace or gold.

It’s still a vintagey dress….and absolutely glam!

Sorry I thought the beading was gold – silver shoes would be better 🙂 and maybe a silver/ turquoise chunky neckalce (can’t tell if the one you have on is silver or gold..?)
