    OMG - I am SO SCARED to get my dress altered!

    I made my appointment for this Sunday to take it in for alterations. I only need the bust altered. It fits fine everywhere else - But holy cow am I a nervous wreck!

    I have this feeling of dread just thinking about it! I think because since I've had it it has been quietly tucked in the back of my closet and I know it is okay. Leaving it alone with someone is freaking me out!! Maybe because in the back of my mind I always knew that when it was time for alterations we would be close to the wedding date.

    I don't know but I am getting tears in my eyes just thinking about it!!!

      Because I am a control freak I too am scared. But, I just have to let it go and make sure I research my seamtress like all of my other vendors. Your day is almost here...isn't that exciting and nerve wrecking at the same time?

        I know that everything will be fine. I, of course, had a horrible experience but that would only happen to me. Everything will be fine, don't worry.

          Don't worry, everything will be fine! Those people alter dresses everyday and I'm sure, especially if you don't need much done, everything will be as you wanted. I just had my second fitting on Saturday and my stomach was turning just thinking about the dress not fitting properly. I have pleading going across my dress, so I was afraid that the alterations would throw off the pleading. But it was perfect and I had to get the entire dress altered. So, I'm sure yours will be perfect if not much is needed!

            I just can't see how she's going to be able to fix what needs to be so it fits me perfectly! I'm not good at putting my faith in others...lol. Oh well...I find out next Saturday how she did....

              I am feeling the same way about the bust area! just remind yourself that the tailors are professional and will make you look awesome!

                Oh ya. I was totally nervous- I just kept thinking "if i get this back 2 weeks prior, how am I going to fix a f-up?" It worked out so it was wasted thought.

                Just keep yourself sane and remember- they are professionals. They do it all day. If they screw it up, then cross that bridge. For now, no worries. :)

                  Haha I havent ordered a dress yet and I am freaked about this too! The woman at the bridal shop said since I will possibly get a corset back then there really wouldnt be any alterations needed. Is this true??

                      i'm not nervous about the alterations per say, but i'm more nervous about getting my dress back in time. and making sure that it fits.

                      ok, maybe i'm nervous about alterations.


                      ACTUALLY you know what i'm the MOST nervous about? staying the same weight from alterations time to wedding time. what if i gain 3 lbs and the dress doesn't fit? or a loose 5 and it doesn't fit?
