While you all are shopping....


Dear ESB, 

Okay, so I never thought I'd be writing into a wedding advice column, but then I discovered you and got engaged and am slowly losing my mind. I guess that's just the way it is---once the ring hits the finger, your mind sorta implodes with girl fairy tales and calligraphy.  

Anyhooo.... So, I saw this dress on your site and I fell in love. But, it's sold out in my size! I'm a 6/8 and the largest they have is a 2! My friends, who think it's very me, say I should buy it and try and get it taken out. But, I'm nervous that would ruin the dress. 

Do you think I should try that? Or do you have any other dress suggestions that might be sorta similar? 

Thanks!

Sadly, you can't let out a size 2 to a size 6. At BEST you'd get a couple of inches, but then the beading would be effed.

Has anyone seen anything similar? Or similarly fantastic?



It really is a fantastic dress.

    7. Thanks... Actually was thinking of not having a wedding at all. Then stumbled on renting out an old YMCA camp in Michigan for three days. Literally, just started planning things but am thinking lots of activities, drinking good beer, running around, and Camp fire karaoke. Fingers crossed, it all goes as well as getting this dress did!

  8. This dress is SO RAD. I'm enraptured so much that I'm thinking of beading a veil like this.

  9. Wow, this dress is stunning! The beading is enchanting (did I just use the word enchanting?) yet edgy somehow. I agree with Anon. above that's it's the first dress I've seen that made me to do the wedding thing all over again! Congrats! Now on to the next question: what shoes will you wear?

  10. I actually ordered it myself in a size 6 but returned it immediately. Do you have any sort of ass? if so, this dress widens it beyond comprehension. The back (above the ass) is killer tho.
