I just came back from my first fitting and am sighing in relief. Four months is a long time to wait for a dress and in the meantime, I was having paranoid thoughts - maybe I didn't pick the right color, maybe I wouldn't like it when it came in, maybe I spent too much, maybe maybe maybe...
But when I tried it on again and the seamstress pinned it in the right places...wow, I had no more doubts. *crossing fingers that this doesn't change*
*on a sidenote - At the time that I was deciding on the size to order, my attendant pulled out a sizing chart. I was a size 4 in both the bust and the hips, but a size 6 in the waist. I was teetering on whether to go with the 4 or the 6, thinking maybe I'd lose that 5 lbs that people always say brides lose the week of the wedding. So I went with the size 4. Since then, I've been browsing preownedweddingdresses.com and oncewed.com and saw an overwhelming number of dresses which were label size 6, and then altered down. I was nervous...maybe I should have ordered the 6...maybe my dress wouldn't fit. Well, I slipped that baby on no problem today (and i haven't lost any weight) and was left wondering what would have happened if I had ordered another size up? Me thinks a whole lotta extra alternations. (and mind you, my little alterations weren't cheap!).
And without further ado....here are pics from the first fitting! (I only have pics of the bustled dress.)
I plan on selling the dress after the wedding so let me know if you're interested. (Melissa Sweet "Mila" - It's "white" but really, it's off white/cream. I compared it to the stark white paint on the walls and you'd think it was ivory - but it's between ivory and white. gorgeous! I am 5'3" and wearing 3" heels. (Bust 32.5, Waist 25.5/26, Hips 35.5). The dress label size is a 4. Street size 0-2.
