I don’t like my wedding dress. Primarily because the illusion piece irritates my skin and because my dress is too big. I SWEAR that I ordered a 6 but they gave me an 8 and they won’t let me exchange it. So I don’t love it anymore and I can’t buy another one. I already spent $1200 on this. Thoughts?

Wow, I’m sorry to hear that. When is your wedding? Would you have another one to buy if you were able to sell this one? How about alterations? Can they take it in to fit like a 6?

i work at a bridal boutique, and usually they can alter the dress up to 2 sizes. can you get it taken in and possibly remove the piece you dont like? Taking a dress in is usually a fairly cheap process.

wow thats a pretty dress!!! although i love the neckline (make is so unique) Maybe they can take it of so it can just be a regular sweetheart neckline… then u can add a nice sash to bling it up a bit… im sure something can be done to take it in so it fits you perfectly… people have went down more then 2 dress sizes and they just alter the dress…
you could try to sell it and then buy something else…
or try the 99 dollar sale at davids bridal… i dont you dont want to spend more.. but 99 bucks wont be so bad for a whole new dress

I’m sure the illusion piece – which is BEAUTIFUL – can easily be lined. The dress is beautiful and easily altered.

Elle2190: You could try to sell it. I would just get the illusion neckline removed and transfer the beading to the border of the sweat hear neckline.

I think it’s a beautiful dress. With alterations, it will fit you perfectly.

Talk with a seamstress. They can sew in some ribbon or lining under the beading to make it less itchy. Taking a dress one size down isn’t a big deal either.

If the illusion neckline is itchy maybe you could get the edging ribbon of it relined. (I’m assuming that it’s just the edge that’s annoying you.) And a good tailor should definately be able to alter the dress one size. The dress itself is lovely, I love the shape and the material looks really good quality.

Elle2190: It definitely looks too big on you, but even with that considered it looks great on you and shows off your body beautifully. The itchiness would be easily fixeable since it just seems to be the trim that’s the problem.
It would be another thing entirely if you really wanted a lace dress all along, or something like that, and you felt the dress was not you. Or if it was obvious the dress wasn’t doing your body any favours. Then I would be suggesting you consider other options. But neither of those things apply.
And for what it’s worth, I think the dress looks more expensive than one that cost $1200. I really don’t think you could find a dress of the same quality, that suits your body as well, for the same price unless you went the pre-owned route. And that has risks of its own too.
