I was wondering if anyone had any experience with getting an A-lined dress altered into a trumpet/fit and flair style dress? Any input is appreciated : )

Do you mind if I ask why? I am considering going there, but I do not want to drive down to the States if it is not worth it....

It's actually from David's Bridal lol. After dealing with them, I wouldn't recommend them to anyone but I really do love the uniqueness of this dress.

Here is my dress that i ordered almost a couple months back, lately I have been having such doubts and I don't know why?? Especially when I watch say yes to the dress, I even started to cry the other night and I think my fiance thought something was wrong with me haha. Has anyone else had doubts after ordering?? I will be making it sweetheart neckline and losing 20 pounds lol but I am loooking for honest truthful opinions please!!!

hey peach - I, too, went to david's. I think it's fine if you're not expecting too much: the carpet was dirty, one of the mirrors was cracked, the hanger in the dressing room was broken, the room itself was TINY, they had horrible flourescent lights, etc etc.on the lacking aesthetics. it's the first place I went, and the woman who helped me was pretty good. she was also patient and allowed my mom and I a lot of time to try on the styles and decide - I never felt rushed. she didn't come in the room with me, and my mom and I were pretty much free to do whatever - we were almost alone in the back area of the store - EXCEPT for the sales managers, who kept walking over at every opportunity asking, "is this the dress?" it was so bad my consultant even apologized for them!

 

all in all, the experience was fairly similar to that I received at other boutiques. I liked the woman helping me, and lo and behold, a few months later I went back to purchase the very first dress I tried on there. although it doesn't have a lot of the detailing that makes dresses really lovely, it's simple and beach-y and perfect for budget-conscious me. the veil was also a steal, as were the shoes. just be aware that all their purchases are final sales, so you might want to take some time to decide.

 

oh, the first dress they ordered for me had makeup smeared on it (?!). I guess it's a possibility because they sell directly off the rack. but after they re-ordered it for me, the second was immaculate and they swore they had just pulled it out of its original packaging. again, it wasn't that big of a deal. if you don't have your expectations too high, I think you'll be just fine. but if you're after the champagne experience, just try to take it with a grain of salt. ; )

kristen - your dress is really lovely, and I'm not just saying that. I think it looks great on you, and your nerves are just part of the overall thing. if you can, try not to worry too much until it comes in. I think once you put it on again, you'll be completely reassured.

 

personally, I've had doubts about nearly everything (not the FI, but everything else ; ) - the other day I was reading snarky traveler reviews on tripadvisor re my resort and thinking, "what have I done?!" again, I think it's just part of the process to look and question and then do it all over again. but I really think you will remember why you chose the dress as soon as you try it on again.

 

also, I think you look great just as you are. the dress really highlights your beautiful figure. I think everything will work out a-ok for you! : )

Thanks for your kind words Kelly!  Like you said, hopefully when it comes in and I put it on I will love it.  If not, I will be buying a new dress lol.  I tried on soo many dresses and it is different then what I thought I would end up with and I think that is also why I am having doubts.  I did get frustrated while dress shopping trying to find a dress I "LOVED" and I just hope I didn't settle : (  Last night the same thing happened to me with the tripadvisor reviews, my fiance and I were reading recent ones and I almost had a break down because they were so bad!  After speaking to a bride earlier who just got married at the same hotel as me I feel much better.

 

Thanks again! :)

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
