I am going to be a bridesmaid in my friends wedding and the dress that I have is several sizes too big, it actually belongs to someone else and she cant make it to the wedding anymore so I am taking her place. But I can’t afford to buy the dress, so I want to wear it without altering it, and it is silk and I feel like even pinning it will damage it, it is so delicate. I’m trying to figure out how to “pin” it without actually pinning, maybe clipping it in someway? Are there any magic clips that i could use? Any ideas/advice? My hair is long so it will hide the back of the dress for the most part…
