I’d take the opportunity to wear a long dress over a short dress any day, but it’s quite difficult to find an event in which it would be socially acceptable to wear an elegant floor-length dress (trust me, I would know). Due to this sad yet true fact, Ellebay Bridal Boutique offers a complimentary cutting service with each custom-made gown purchased. If you’re going to be spending X amount of funds on a dress, might as well wear it more than once, right?
Last year, my friend Rochelle acquired her graduation gown from us. She’d had the dress in her closet since grad, and though was offered the choice, simply did not have the heart to cut her dress. Today, though, she came into the shop, prom dress in hand, and told us she wanted it shortened.
Surely she got a tad down when I finished the first snip and realized that there was no turning back. However, once it was finished, she was definitely pleased with her decision.
