Hi Brides,

 

I think I'm having a minor meltdown (lol I'm dramatic).

 

I found my dress (Mori Lee 4968) this past Saturday and I am in love with it. But I really wanted a sweetheart neckline. My bridal consultant assured me that with alterations I can make a sweetheart neckline.

 

Here's the thing, I happened to be looking at the designer's website and stumbled across a very similar dress (Mori Lee 3124) with the sweetheart neckline I wanted. The other problem is that style only comes in plus size (which I am not).

 

So I was wondering if I would be able to request the designer to customize my dress to have the neckline that I want. I don't see it being a problem because they're both the same designer. I plan on calling them first thing Monday morning.

 

Are there any other brides out here that was able to have something done like that?

Yes. As long as the designer  team agrees to it. My dress was Enzoani and they offered to make it in sweetheart, however the people at the bridal store of course wanted my business and said it would be cheaper for me to have them do it, to which I agreed...but there was still the option to have it made that way before it arrived. Looks beautiful on you!!

I always wanted a sweet heart neckline, and it's the only characteristic of my wedding dress list of requirement that my dress doesn't meet. However, I love the scalloped lace edge detailing on my dresses original design and thought is was a nice trade-off.  I've been contemplating altering the neckline to a sweetheart and in a perfect world I would keep the scalloped detailing, but this is an unlikely option based on the feedback from my seamstress after send a pic.  So what to do...keep the neckline as is or sacrafice the scalloped lace and get a sweetheart?

Thank you!  I actually wen with a happy medium... I left the lace intact but altered the underlayer to a modified sweetheart it will be similar to this, but the lace overlay won't come up as high. But I think it's a win win!

Love this dress and it looks fantastic on you!  Any good seamstress can make this alteration and should be pretty cost effective.  The only two considerations that I would make is that if you alter it after production, you may only be able to achieve a modified sweetheart due to the rouching (sp?), I would just confirm this. Also, one advantage of having Mori Lee customize this for you, is that the bodice at the bust line has a the cross-over detail which couldnâ€t be achieved in alterations.  But the cost for Mori Lee to do this customization could be double if not triple and in all honesty not really necessary unless the details shown are a deal breaker for you.

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • 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!
