Alterations for a short bride?
Hi! So I have been eyeing up a beautiful trumpet/mermaid dress but am concerned about that style of dress on my height. I am 5ft exactly, and plan on wearing 3-4inch heels. I just wondered if anyone else had had this style dress altered to fit a smaller hight? I am just thinking that if you just shorten/hem it, it would be out of proportion? Are semstresses able to shorten the bodice as well?
I obviously will also ask these questions if I do decide to go try this dress but just wanted a rough idea if it can be done before I really fall in love with it!
(Also if you did have this done, how much did it cost you?)
