Wedding dress alteration advice...

I would take the dress in immediately to let the waist out.
Forget about the bustle if it is only for the church.
If it's tight in the bust take off your bra. It made a huge difference when I was gown shopping!
I can;t wait to see you in the dress!!!

I do like Maura's suggestions though.
I wouldn't worry about the bustle. As for the other alterations, you might not really need them.

I refuse, REFUSE to wear this dress to my FMIL's shinding. I want to get that dress off as soon as possible! If I can get away with it I will wear white juicy sweatpants and a white sweatshirt type thing. LOL. Hello its a backyard!
If not I will find some plain white dress to wear, I refuse to wear a full dress to the backyard.
I have to get the dress pressed so maybe I will ask the cleaners if they can do the wrist thing that Maura was talking about.
I tried it on with a bra (my everyday bra) so I will try it on without one, b/c I really don't think I need one. However, I have AF (just got it today) so I have a feeling I'm bloated and it won't give me an accurate portrayl of how it fits! Uggh!

And since dumb AF showed up, def give yourself a couple days to get back to your "normal body" before you make any decisions. NOTHING fits me the same when I first get AF. It's sooooo irritating.

I had to have the bust let out of a BM dress, and in my experience, the dress was triple stitched in the inside, meaning that there were two layers that could be let out, a simple steaming fixed up the seams, and created a far more comfortable situation!

i just read through all of this...
I say No alterations and bustle
Yes to wrist loop.
and Yes to White Juicy sweatsuit to backyard - why don't you take that over somewhere and get "Mrs.xxxx" ebroidered on it?
that would be cute then you wear it on the plane to your Honeymoon too.
i mean really, when else are you going to do that?
