Welcome to the Hive!

That dress is AMAZING!  They should be able to order it in a length that is good for you.  Don’t forget to take in heals the same height that you plan on wearing at your wedding when ordering.

Love, love, love the barn.  I really can’t wait to see what else you have planned for all of this. Congrats!  Happy planning!

first of all, you look amazing in the dress.  2nd, yes it probably will be difficult to hem with the beading at the bottom.  If that is a belt on your waist, they can remove some length at the waistline maybe.  A good seamstress will be able to figure it out for you, I’m sure you’re not the only one in the world to have this problem!

Firstly, you look STUNNING in that dress!  Secondly, I agree that if the flowers on your waistline are on a belt or removeable, a seamstress can raise the skirt upwards, so that you don’t have to play with the details at the bottom of the dress! GORGEOUS GORGEOUS!! 😀

if you really need a hem, they can take it from the top, a little more expensive, but it just depends on the seam and the seamstress. Davids bridal quoted me $120 for  a hem from the top on a pretty elaborate dress davids bridal galina sv415. But-they have lots of shoe options too, you’ll just need to re-try once you get your size on. I noticed that with the size 8, my dress is really LONG and with the size 6, a little shorter, so you might have that going for you 🙂   my fi is my height, so I’ll need a hem, since I’ll be wearing flats or 1.1/4 in heels. It’s funny how you have such a hard decision like choosing a dress, then you have to thik about all the alterations, shoes, and heights, bra, slip, etc. ps, if you have a poofy slip on, that might help too… one lady at DB said they had a bride wear 2 slips for extra poof. lol.

Hi! I have this dress too! And yes, the seamstress will hem the dress from the waist to raise the hem.

@Idahobride07:  I LOVE barn weddings. I haven’t ordered a dress yet (much less gone shopping) so I can’t help with the length question, but I had to pop in and say how much I adore your venue. Do you have pictures of the inside?
