- Wedding: March 2013
Please, please, please help – my wedding is in just over 5 weeks and I tried on my dress for the first time yesterday . . . it’s awful. AWFUL. Despite spending the earth on a bespoke design from a well known and pricey designer, despite 2 toile fittings and many sketches, the dress doesn’t fit properly, the lace looks synthetic and horrible, and the silk is a slightly odd colour. I’m meeting her again this weekend and taking my mother and a friend with me for moral support (and they’re both on the warpath having seen the dress!) – I hope that the lace can be taken off and replaced with a more delicate one in a more suitable colour, which will neutralise the colour of the silk, and perhaps once the alterations are done it will be OK. But if it’s not, if it’s still awful, where can I get an off-the-peg size 22 dress (in London or the South West) that might be ready in under a month??!!
