Hey ladies! So I am getting married this December, God Willing, we already postponed once due to covid. I bought my dress at a discount and loved the beading and sleeves, but not the aline fit. I have a seamstress who is working on restyling the gown, but I'm starting to worry that the image in my head won't be what I want. My seamstress is extremely talented and I have faith in her just doubting my vision. I love that the dress will be unique and I haven't seen many dresses with the beading this one has. The wedding will be a romantic winter theme with red roses, poinsettias and tons of candles. So 2 questions. 1. Does the beading look too young? I love beading, but it's just a concern I've been having as I don't want to look like a kid. 2. Do you think the end product will look good? Photos attached: my dress is the aline with sleeves, the other photos are inspiration from pinterest for the new bottom style. Also I will be adding a beaded or a thin plain white belt to accentuate my waist.
Hey there! I'm not super knowledgeable when it comes to dress alteration stuff, but the first thing that came to my mind was (what appears to be) a significant difference between the fabric of your dress and the fabric of the other dresses? The other dresses seem to have a heavier, more flowy fabric (which, granted, might show every single bump and line...who knows!) and yours seems to be a lighter fabric that is a bit sturdier, if that makes sense. In other words, I do think the seamstress will accomplish a similar silhouette, but I'm not sure if it will fall the same way? I hope my rambling was at least a little bit helpful, and I wish you lots of luck in the planning process!

Thanks Mrs. Spring. I did think about that. I think I struggled to find something that was my style in the stores amd overall love my dress, I'm just afraid my vision isn't going to work out. It's nerve wracking not having the final product yet. Lol. It's nice to know others can see what I'm thinking. 😊
