    Your dress is beautiful!

    I’m sure that the store’s alterations staff will be able to help fix the problem with the wilting flowers. 

    As for having buyer’s remorse, so many of us have experienced that.  It’s very challenging to be satisfied with anything in a day and age when there are so many options.

    I’m sure you will be a stunning bride! 🙂

    Your dress is GORGEOUS, wedding-date-twin! Don’t be afraid of going to alterations; the earlier you can get in to do it, the more time you’ll have to make sure the dress looks how you want it to. I think it’s very smart that you bought the sample, and they’ll be able to fix anything you think needs some refreshing!

    Is that a Lazaro? It’s a stunning dress. I agree with PP, the earlier you get into alterations, the more time you have to make sure your vision is carried out. 

    Also, not only can alterations make a sample gown feel like brand new, but there are some magical powers in a simple steam and press, as well! You’d be surprised how those ~wilted~ flowers will perk right up after a trip to the dry cleaners!

    I think the sample was a greta idea- Think of all the movie you saved!!! I myself got a sample, and some beads are missing but I don’t give a hoot. No one will notice!

    And the dress is GORGEOUS, it probably just needs a steam!!

    WOW that dress looks amazing on you. I tried something like that on and it did nothing for my body that it didnt even make it to photo worthy on me. I would kill to have a figure like yours as that dress is GORGEOUS and looks incredible on you! Get the dress cleaned and freshened up so it looks like new and you will love it like its a brand new gown!

    Oh good! It sounds like you’re warming back up to your lovely dress! I bought a sample too. Because I procrastinated and didn’t have enough time to order but it never felt used to me. I hope alterations go well.
