I’m not sure about the hem, but I have to ask…and I ask this as nicely as possible, as someone who herself has gained 10 lbs since summer….Have you gained some weight? A few dress sizes? If not, then yes, your dress needs to be taken in a little!!! You look a lot bigger in that picture than you did at the salon.

the hem seems ok to me but the top is definitely too big. i think if you got that taken care of most of the problems will be fixed!

I worked in a bridal store, and lengths will be different if you’ve lost weight, even to the point of appearing uneven.  Also, check to make sure that there’s nothing off about your shoes.  I know it sounds silly, but that little plastic bottom of a heel might not feel different walking, but sometimes will make you look uneven if one is missing.  I would suspect that the differences are a point of weight shifting around, which is normal.  🙂

It doesn’t look like you gained weight to me! The first picture is in almost ideal conditions. The dress is cinched to your body; whereas the other pictures show the dress not taken in at all. To me, it looks like it might be a little loose around the waist, too. But it’s hard to see in pictures as the flowers are blocking part of your middle.

@born2teachuga:  this doesn’t answer any of your questions but I’m confused and curious so I have to ask. Why are you standing in grass and in the road in your wedding dress with a bouquet, if your wedding isn’t until March 2013? Aren’t you afraid of ruining your gown?

@born2teachuga:  At first glance it looks to me like at the salon you were wearing a crinoline that made the base of the dress more full, and you were wearing clips that pulled the bodice material to fit your top more snug.
