I'm not sure what would be easier, I think it's always easier to make smaller than bigger. I bought a sample dress and it was the last one so I didn't have much of a choice. The dress fit perfectly except for the top 4 inches that is too hard to close with the zipper, well and the hips part because of my huge ass haha.
If you go south macleod and turn right on 162 ave, keep going until you see a mac's on your left. The alterations place is right beside the mac's.
Haha sounds like we have similar shapes! I bought a sample too, and it fits almost perfectly but needs to be hemmed. I also need to lose about 5-10 lbs because it's a bit too tight now, but I figured that'd be realistic. I wouldn't call myself large at all, but SOO many of the samples I tried on I couldn't even get over my butt/thighs/hips because I'm disproportionately huge down there for my size haha
Ah, I need to get on to figuring out what the groomsen will wear, esp. before summer is out. We're not going for a beachy theme, and my FI prefers to have it more formal. He bought a nice light grey suit from Harry's (good excuse for him - it cost more than my dress!). I think I want the groomsmen in darker grey pants and just a white shirt with suspenders and bow ties, and my Fi in a full suit and tie. Our wedding is in December so it shouldn't be too hot
Do any of you think the ivory vs. white thing is an issue? My dress is kind of a soft white/ivory, and I've read it can look dingy if next to bright white. Wondering if i should get my FI and groomsmen ivory shirts instead of white
