Alterations kind of scare me. Not because I don't want alterations, but because I'm counting on them for that "perfect" fit. Wedding gowns are so heavy, and I don't want to be pulling it up all night. I want the top to be REALLY tight and form-fitting to my body. On "Say Yes to the Dress," they say the wedding gown is the tightest piece of clothing a woman will ever wear! I just hope when I get alterations done they can make my gown stick to me so I don't have to feel self-conscious about it slipping down!
My wedding dress is just slightly too long in the front, so I'll require a tiny alteration to either pick-up the hem in another spot (a nice advantage of having a dress with pick-ups in the skirt) or completely hem the gown. Plus, I'll need a bustle, and the dress will need to be steamed.
The final alteration I really want to make happen is adding a true sweetheart neckline. I found a perfect example of one the other day:
I hope these alterations don't end up being too pricy!
