- Wedding: May 2011
My wedding dress is here! But the alterations are going to be crazy. Because I only have a five-month long engagement and procrastinated on dress shopping, I had to get the dress I fell in love with (the Maggie Sottero Natalie) off the rack. It has to be taken in a few sizes, which shouldn’t be a problem, but it is a good five inches too long, even when I am wearing 4-inch heels.
I don’t have a choice – I *have* to get it shortened, but I’m so worried that the beautiful pattern on the skirt will be messed up. I knew I was taking a risk when I bought the dress, but the seamstress at the shop told me that it wouldn’t be a problem (of course I knew nothing about wedding dresses and happily agreed). But now I’m kind of worried…guess I’m just looking for encouragement. Has anyone else had the “Natalie” or a similar dress shortened like this?
I don’t have a picture of me in the dress yet, but here is is on the model:
