Those definately look like pin marks. It looks like they were left in to long. I would get a replacement gown.

Yeah it looks like it’s from a pin or something. Is it that noticeable if you don’t know it’s there? I say you have time if you really want to get a new one. I think you could go either way on this.

Since you have the time and they offered to replace it, I’d send it back.  You don’t want to spend all that money and be disappointed in the product.

I would deal with it, myself.  I might attempt to massage the fabric a little in an attempt to minimize the appearance – but then, I have a lot of experience sewing.  I can say that chiffon and like materials are almost impossible to get perfect.  (My best friend had me make my Bridesmaid or Best Man gown – lavender chiffon with french seams, empire waist, and a bizarre scarf/drape on the front with a brooch.  That brooch was a pain with that fabric.)

You have SO much time. I would send that back PRONTO! It is your wedding dress, and I am sure it wasn’t cheap, so I would make sure to get my moneys worth. Good luck! Don’t stress, you really do have tons of time with your wedding being a year away. 🙂

If I had much time I might send it back since you spent all that money on it. But to be honest aside from when you are selling it after the wedding, no one else is going to notice these holes and they might relax and become less noticeable over time. But ultimately if you arent happy with it, just have to sent back

I agree that since you have that much time, I would get another one (as long as there is no cost).

Sometimes pin holes will come out with a little bit of steaming, ironing or just massaging the fabric like cyneswith said.  I would personally deal with it that way, but then again, I work with fabric all day long.  You do have plenty of time to get it replaced though, if you would rather.

You paid to much for it to not be “perfect”.  I’d send it back!

 You have a full year. Since they are offering to replace it, I would send it back. Perhaps they could put a rush delivery on it and it may come sooner than April. Even if it were April or May before it came in, you would still have plenty of time.
