Do share a pic, but there’s a very good chance you can just trim it off. My lace dress was second hand and had a bunch of fuzzy little snags which I just trimmed off.

I’ll do you one better: I tried on my wedding dress a couple months before the wedding, snagged a hangnail on the zipper while zipping myself into it, didn’t notice, and bled allll over it, and on my veil too! We were able to get the blood out but it wasn’t a great moment.

Depends on the lace, because some lace patterns are pretty forgiving to where you could just trim it off. Please do share a photo when you can!

Bring it to a tailor, do NOT try to trim it yourself. This could create a run through the entire gown. A tailor can properly tie it off and hide it completely without further ruining the dress.

Such an easy fix!! Take a sewing needle with white thread, hook the part that came loose, and pull it back through. You’ll only notice if you look really hard. 

If you cut it you will risk more thread coming loose.

Do not trim!! You could create a hole.

As PPs have said, best to pull it through with a needle. You can get special ‘pull’ needles which do so v easily.

I had the same issue an HOUR before my wedding and managed to pull through (with a normal needle my hairdresser happened to have!) xx

If you are not comfortable pulling it through yourself, your seamstress will absolutely be able to hide it during alterations, just point it out to her. It will take her 2 seconds, don’t worry about it, it is tiny and very fixable
