From what I understand, if they RUIN your dress (snags count) and it’s not wearable, they need to replace it. Check the store policy.

How bad is it, can you post some pics? It may not be bad enough to worry about. yes you want it to be perfect, but nobody may notice especially since it’s at the very bottom. Whos’ to say you didn’t snag it the morning you put it on, right? 

If you love it, i’d find a way to make it work. 

Honestly, i’d demand that they make it look right or they replace it. Then burst into tears about how they ruined the dress.

I think you’ll be the only person to notice it.  I would wear it anyway, then tell your photog to make sure to photoshop the imperfection out of the photos.  Everyone will be looking at the gorgeous BRIDE, not her dress!  Just smile big, no one will look at your feet!

Could you add a few small pick-ups around the bottom to hide them tear? Or a lace panel around the hem to cover the tear?

It’s a ltitle hard to say exactly what to do, b/c wedding dresses are so expensive it really depends on your situation.

But I agree with ejs4y8…maybe you can really get them to replace it, or at least help you to do so.  It is your wedding dress, so maybe they’ll be more accomodating.  Would you be able to afford a new one if they put the money toward the drycleaning and what they’d spend on alterations to a new dress?  I suppose it would help if you sent pictures, but I think it might not be great to wear a torn dress.  I do think Mighty is right and that no one will notice, but you’ll know and it sounds like you might be uncomfortable with it.
