    Ditto Mgoss - love the flowy material on it!  Recommendation on alterations - don't have them done at DB based on what I've heard.  Find an independent seamstress who does alterations.

    Thanks ladies!

    This is my conflict with the alterations.  I know if I get em done at DB they will likely be more expensive... but at the same time I know they do soooo many wedding specific alterations that it will be right.  I'm just nervous about it I suppose.  One great thing - I was told how much it will be for the bustle and hem, she wasn't sure about having the corset back put in.

    I love the way the dress flows, you look absolutely beautiful! How are you doing your hair and are you going to be wearing a vail? As far as alterations go, I have a seamstress who has worked for my grandma, my mom, and now me, and she is amazing. Her name is Cindy and she works out of her home in Everett. Her number is 425-355-7159

    Sooo pretty, and I love the sparklies!

    You know, I remember you were self-conscious about some of your e-pics, but I don't think you have anything to worry about with this dress - it fits you really well.  And the shoes are adorable!

    Jenn - I can't remember but I remember someone having a big issue with alterations and them which is why I recommended against.

    Gina - there actually are a few seamstresses in the area that specifically do wedding gown alterations and I woudl recommend going with someone who, as you mentioned, specializes in that.  Two favorites on this board are Deb Hedeen in Ballard and Darcy Martin in Lynnwood.

    Ohhh thanks!!!  You guys are fantastic resources :)  Looks like DB will not be necessary after all.  Yay.  My sister will hbe happy, too.  She bought her dress there and feels like they hosed her over between picking up the dress and alterations.  I live in Lynnwood so the north end recommendations are so helpful!

    Carrie, I am surprised at how flattering it ended up being when ordered in the  right size!  I'm really excited to wear it for the big day.

    I haven't decided on hairstyle yet - I did get some blingy pins and coils in fuschia (wedding color) but I will definitely have a veil.
