I’d take it to a seamstress and ask their opinion. 

If you HAVE to get a new dress it needs to happen ASAP.

As an october bride switching dresses and having anxiety – I’m so sorry you’re going through this as well! 

Bottom line, you need to feel beyond doubt on your wedding day, and if something is making you un-happy, that needs to change. That’s what I’m going through, because knowing how my dress will look in my images for eternity? Not going to fly for me.

Things are possible. I knew the dress that my heart was truly set on (perhaps you may still need to find it) but I called EVERY store in the nation that carries the line, and I’m on hold right now to get the dress in my size…. granted… it’s in Charleston… but it’s my dream dress, in my budget (once I sell the other one) and I’ll be so much happier with the new one.

If the sash is removable, first take it to a seamstress to see what can be done.. Their may be a totally viable solution. If not, go from there, but you’re going to have to go off the rack or via preownedweddingdresses.com etc. Hope is not lost, but I totally feel your pain and anxiety about this.

Let us know the outcome…

I think that dress is beautiful and I love the look of the sash…it looks perfect! I looked at a few dresses like that too I have to say but depending on the cost of the dress and alterations — Id weigh it out then you know?

Definitely go to a seamstress and see what’s possible. Maybe they can lift the bottom of the dress to make the beading straight across for a “drop waist” effect (and if it looks odd, you could add a simple ribbon sash at the point where the two sections meet).

Good for you for making a decision and not agonising it. Good luck on finding a new one!

Go for it! Do some searches on sample sales in the area, see if there’s an outlet nearby. Here we have a huge store that only sells samples, that might be a good bet for you!
