    I would say $300-500 is reasonable for a $1200 dollar dress...

      Seeing the price difference is making me worried. The sample fit perfectly and I will just need it hemmed a bit. I've considered shortening the train but with these varying costs I might just keep it a longer train despite the beach.

      Wow!  I took a chance and got my dress online really cheap and with my alterations it'll be less than $200.

      I hope mine aren't too bad...according to the current measurements from the bride I'm buying it off of, all I need is for the waist to be taken in a few inches. Otherwise it's the perfect size! For the deal I'm getting I hope I'm not spending a fortune on alterations.

I'm a little worried b/c I'm gonig to start working out with a trainer this month, but am not getting married until Jan/15. SHould I buy a dress in my current size or a smaller size?
