Thank you everyone for helping me decide. Now I am just worried that the girl didn’t measure my waist correctly. I know I am small, but I am measuring 25 to 26 inches on my waist and the salesgirl measured me at 23.5 inches for my waist. I’m hoping it works out in the end since I am planning on having my seamstress corset the back.
Oh boy, I am nervous. Maybe I should call them about it tomorrow? AHH

Congratulations on ordering your dress! I know I was all frazzled and anxious until I finally got mine ordered, then the next wave of panic set in as I worried about whether it’d be perfect or not and what dooms lay ahead in alterations.
I wouldn’t worry much about the estimated 2-3″ difference between your own measurements and the sales girl’s. When you take your own measurements, your posture is different than when someone else is taking them, plus if you have the corset put in, you’ll have at least 2+” of “playing room” if you need it.
PS> Your gown is BEAUTIFUL!

Congratuations on your purchase!!!
One more thing to mark off your list.
Did you tell them you were putting a corset back in? That might be why they are ordering it smaller; so the corset can go in properly. I do think you should call them though to set your mind at ease.

Thank you ladies 🙂
And I know I mentioned the corset thing to her but I don’t think she actually took that into consideration.

Say the girl did screw up my measurements….
Will I be S.O.L. since technically my dress status is ‘ordered’ or can they fix it?
Should I just get the size she measured me for since I do want to go the corset route?

Yay! You look like a fairy princess 🙂 I love it!

She may have ordered it slightly smaller so that the corset is more like a V shape instead of meeting at the opening like a zipper does. Because it will be a corset, you will have more room to adjust it, so I wouldn’t worry at all!

Ok. I believe you all. And I know the corset gives extra room. It still just scares me. I am such a nervous person lol. It is awful.

It never hurts to call and ask, and it may settle your nerves. I might call your seamstress first to ask if a possibly slightly smaller size would be a benefit or detriment to the work ahead for her, though. Wedding planning is stressful enough as is– you shouldn’t have to worry about your dress’ sizing.

Congratulations! You look gorgeous and will look even more so when the dress is in your size! I wouldn’t worry too much about the measurements… I’m pretty petite and measured almost 2 inches smaller than I thought I was as well, and I had the consultant redo it a few times to make sure. They measure the smallest part of your waist, which isn’t necessarily the size you wear when you get jeans which is why I was confused.

I’m so glad you picked this dress! I remember when we voted on it.
You look amazing.
