They can make miracles with alterations! I don’t think you should have an ounce of dress regret, it’s beautiful!

I’m so sorry you had a bad fitting. I honestly don’t think it looks that bad. A good seamstress can do amazing things so I wouldnt stress too much at this point!


I had my veil custom made. It’s a cathedral length (108″) single layer, 108″ wide, veil covered with crystals and beading for $630. You can PM me if you want more info

I am sure alterations can fix it, but I want to say you still look absolutely amazing!

Don’t worry, it’s really not that bad!  They can work wonders with alterations.  My dress was also very big and was taken in quite a bit.

@laurelewrigley:  I’d suggests looking on etsy for the veil, I got mine from there for around $50 plus shipping and the bridal store wanted $295 min and it was no where near as soft!

besides that your dress is beautiful! I’d honestly try to find a way to go through with the alterations with a good experienced alterationist and it’ll end up perfect!

@laurelewrigley:  I don’t blame you. I would definitely talk to the manager b/c it’s their fault. And if they don’t help I would take it as high as you can go. IMO, the store should be altering the dress and not charging you a dime!

@laurelewrigley:  well I think you look amazing in that dress and when the alterations are complete it’s going to look even better.

You have every right to be annoyed I would be too but it could be worse – too tight-  and they can do a lot with alterations!
