Ok ladies~ I am having a mini dress anxiety attack, and need some advice from real brides =) Without going into the long story of me losing a few more pounds than expected, my dress has a zipper back which doesn’t allow for flexibilty. And I always wanted the tie up style anyways, but my Maid/Matron of Honor thinks it won’t look right with my dress…
Without further ado, what do you think? Should I just wait to see if it needs to be taken in a little on the sides, or bite the $125 bullet and get the back switched to a tie up style?? Sorry if the pics are huge! (I’m learning still…!) =) Thank you for any help!!!
These are older pictures, it fits different now, just thought it might help to see the style to get a better idea!!
And here is one of the back of the dress

I don’t know.
I like the dress how it is. My dress was lace up and I love it but I think for this dress the zipper works.
How much do you have to take it in? Like 3 or 4 inches, then the lace might work.

for this dress, i would keep the zipper – unless you are looking at losing even more weight or it would fluctuate more – a lace up would help get rid of some stress over the fit of the dress.

I voted to change it to lace up purely because it seems like it is what you want. It will ease your anxiety and with everything that goes on with wedding planning, that is one less thing on your mind. 🙂

If you always wanted that style anyway, then I would say go for the switch. See what a seamstress would say, but go with what you want.

If it’s what you really want, go for it!

That dress is gorgeous, and if the corset is what you really want, go for it. $125 isn’t THAT much, especially if you love the results.
Mine doesn’t have a corset OR a zipper. It has approximately 3000 buttons up the back. That’s going to be fun to get out of at the end of the night.

I think it would look lovely with your dress. I personally like the corsets because they fit to your body so well! And are very pretty.
