Sooooo, I bought my wedding dress a few weeks ago and now I am starting to have some doubts. Everyone was hyping me up and telling how pretty I look and that this is THE DRESS. It was the only one left in the store. It was a deal too, I paid like 1015$ and I like the material, it's a crepe dress and it felt really nice.
However now I have doubts... I will have to do alterations (the basics: sleeves, shorten it and a bit in the back to make it lower) but no sure about what other alterations can be done and how much it will cost, with the price I paid I don't mind paying a bit more for the alterations, but my wedding will be small so I don'twant a 5k dress either which is why I got this one at first... I don't hate the dress, I like how it looks on me but I don't know, the lace kind of throw me off I think...I would like the lace to stop at the waist... would that be possible? Online it sounds like everything is possible but I find it hard to believe they can do it... I would like something like below, not exactly like that but to have an idea... what you guys think?
The seamstresses will have the answers. I'm thinking it would be hard/expensive/a redesign.
The dress looks lovely. And comfortable!! I made the mistake of one with a little bit of boning that of course punctured my ribcage in two places during the wedding. I DO NOT SUGGEST.
you could do an overskirt easily enough. get two looks outta one. Easy enough to head to a store and check it out. good to know for price comparison too! might be cheaper to get the overskirt than the alterations.
maybe a crepe belt with excess fabric? Just worth a look.
ALSO - Suntan's matter!! i liked my dress less and less, then had a suntan just prior to the wedding and didnt need the extra sparkle or pop i was looking for with the seamstress, i looked great. Jus to keep in mind depending on your wedding date and skin type.
It’s possible but you’ll need to find the right seamstress who can create an entirely new skirt basically (bc of the way the crepe is cut below the waistline where the lace is). I would look for a tailor in your area who does customizations and get a quote
