I’m so sorry about that.  Are you sure that your weight hasn’t changed since then?  I’m sure they can alter down 2 sizes and if it’s an off site alterations place, they probably don’t make anything on the amount of alterations you get.  I hope you figure it out!

This is not a great situation to be in! Here are the GREAT news though! It is easy to take a dress in, taking out is a bit hard and in some cases impossible. 

I am in the same boat as you are, but my dress is a corset back, so it is easy to go up or down.

I have a friend that originally bough a size 14 zip up wedding dress, it was about a year before her wedding. Long story short, she had to take it in to size 4!!!! The seamstress did a wonderful job – it looked like it came in size 4. Please do not worry, i think it will work out and it is going to be perfect!

Definitely do your research on seamstresses, and go with somebody who comes highly recommended. A good seamstress should have no trouble taking your dress in a couple of sizes, even with lace and beading. (What is your street size?)

My dress was also ordered in a 10, which I was worried about, and it definitely was too big…the seamstress at the bridal shop didn’t do a great job of taking it in and I lost more weight after I picked up my dress. I found a good seamstress in this area who did an incredible job with it – it seriously looks like it was made for me. So don’t despair…you might have to spend a little more on alterations, but you should be fine! Like an earlier poster mentioned – its better for it to be too big than too small, so that is probably why they had you order the 10.

@june42011 – good that u asked that question, because my dress is the same way, has all the beading on the top part. I asked, the lady at the store and she told me that they take it in at the seems and it should not matter it is going to look good.
