        Starfish do you live in NY?  Because you should be able to just go into any shop that sells Pronovias and they should be able to just tell you if you can order it to your requests.  Unless of course you are wanting a trip to NY! 

        @ Brenners - what a great idea! Never thought of asking! Thinking I may have to go to NY for that kind of request.   

         

        @JayKay -  Removing the straps completely, turn into a sweetheart neckline.  The seamstress folded the straps in created a v in the back too, looks gorgeous!

         

        @ToriLynn - which pronovias are you considering?!  I have found one from the 2012 collection that I really want to try as well but it's not in stores yet...  Thinking a trip to NY may be required.

         

        What's amazing about this whole ordeal is that I found this dress on Newbury St in Boston at what I thought was a very reasonable price. They offered to sell me the sample - great condition and do the alterations, simple right? So I stop into this little shanty of a bridal shop, knowing they carry pronovias, VERY surprised by the way the shop looks - pure judgement call here - to find out they have the dress, will order me a new one (this is where I worked with the alterations lady directly), do the alterations there of course for $1000 CHEAPER!!!!   To me it's a no brainer - order the dress but it's that what if that's stopping me!

         

          So I stopped into this little shant So I stopped into this little shanty

              I agree with you 100% I "should" be able to do that....  I just didn't trust the answer I was receiving.  I drove into NY today, no I don't live there, or near there for that matter but I am SO glad I did!  I found my answer and trusted the people who gave it to me and fell in love with a dress that doesn't need alterations.  Will post tomorrow - exaughasted from my day of traveling

                  Well ladies, here is my dress that I ordered online. I had such a hard time finding something that I loved so I had to look online. I've tried fitted and mermaid styles and loved how they looked on me, but I am still not sure if I did the right decision with this dress. Can't wait to get it so I can finally relax and not worry about it anymore.

                    I've been known to be a bit impulsive with my decisions, this time be it no different.  I decided Thursday after experiencing some (ok a lot of) stress over answers I was receiving from a LBS regarding a dress that I found and loved but wanted to make alterations to, that I needed to go straight to the designer to get an answer that I trusted.  I made an appointment in NYC and I made my trek (10 hours total) into the city to find my dress.  I had an amazing experience, very personalized service, they provided me with the answers I was in search of and then proceeded to find me the perfect dress for our event that wont require major alterations.  Simple yet unique with the design on the bodice, I immediately knew I was done looking, I had found my dress and a wave of relief washed over me.  The woman I worked with, I am grateful for her kindness, her camera skills lacked a bit...

                      This is amazing! Who is the designer? I don't think you'll be disappointed at all!
