    We had 24 people attend our wedding in Las Caletas, Mexico on May 24th, 2009!

    We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!

      Ok, here's what she said:

      "Yikes..I would say no. It's just going to kill the silhouette.
      Especially this one. It looks like Chiffon which is a pain in the *** to
      work with because it shifts around under the sewing machine."

      At least now you won't have to go in somewhere and be laughed at

      She also added this:

      "Completely understandable (I told her about you not wanting to walk in
      somewhere and have them laugh at you, lol). They might try it but I can't
      say that she would like the results. Better to go with something within 2 sizes of
      what you need. I'd say that's the limit."

        Thanks Jaime! That really helps. It is a chiffon-like material which I know is a b**ch to alter. I'm bummed...but I kinda already knew that that's what the answer would be. I really appreciate you going out of your way to spare me some humiliation at the seamstress!
