I’m sure this has been discussed before, so I apologize for being repetitive. Well, my wedding is on October 20th and I tried my dress on last week during an alterations fitting and it feels tight. I went dress shopping at the end of February and the dress I tried on was slightly big. Before placing the order, I was measured and told what size to order. The dress arrived in April and when I tried it on it seemed fine. I didn’t try the dress on again until last September. It has a corset back and inside a flap that has buttons to close before lacing up the corset ( I hoped I described that correctly ). It felt tight as far as trying to close the button, but of course it laced up without a problem.
Last week, the woman doing my alterations had a hard time bringing the sides of the dress together in order to button it. She’s a little but older and kept asking why did the bridal shop order a dress that was too small. I kept having to explain to her that the original dress I tried on while shopping for dresses was too big, and that I had been measured before my order had been placed. I’ve gained maybe 3-5 pounds because this whole wedding planning process is stressful along with other health problems that I wasn’t aware of until this past August, and I haven’t been as consistent with working out as I should have been, so not placing blame on anyone but me. But with practically 2 weeks to go, what would you all do? The seamstress plans to move the buttons over to help with the closing, but I won’t know how that’ll work out until tomorrow after my next fitting. I really don’t want to have to pay for another dress :-(
Sorry for the long post.
