I agree, the hoks would probably much easier to tke off and no damage to the dress.

I was also going to suggest the hook/eye closure… unless you want your wedding night to be super-special…

You:  “Here husband, I give you these (wedding-themed) scissors! I am yours!”

Husband:  “HOT DARN!  *snip snip sni*…  I hope that wasn’t an important strap :/”

You:  *fume*

Yeah, they make them in white! Or do like we did and buy the black ones, then use a little white-out, heehee.

Snaps are good, but hook and eyes will hold better with the wedding dress. Snaps aren’t as durable.

They also make velcro type things you can sew in to help it lie flat.

If you are having alterations done, ask your seamstress. From my experience, they are normally pretty good at figuring out these things.

Can you post pics?

EDIT: That’s absolutely beautiful. Can you post pics of the problem?

I’d totally just put a few stitches in.  Odds are you won’t even need to cut them – just let Hubs rip them out=)

I would think they can “make it a size smaller” themselves. 

Honestly, I would let David’s do it, but I don’t get why they can’t do that themselves… 

Dresses go more than 1 size down in alterations on a daily basis, lol.
