Dress Fitting

How many dress fittings did you have?


 


I have my first one Friday and I'm terrified!  The wedding is April 11, so I think I will have at least one more before then.  I'm hoping for two.

I haven't had my dress fittings yet (first one is in April), but I'm also hoping for 2...maaaaaybe even 1!  The less the better in terms of cost, but obviously that all depends on what needs to be done.  Do you think there's a lot that has to be done with your dress?

The bridal shop had issues figuring the best way to do my bustle. I ended up with four fittings and a fifth final try on. Usually it doesn't take that many but these women were perfectionists!

I had 3 dress fittings because the seamstress had to alter it by 2 sizes (bought a pre-owned wedding dress because I would've blown over our budget otherwise).

well, when I tried it on, it fit pretty good in the waist area and that was without spanx :)


I will need her to hem it, put cups in the bodice so no bra and take it in just a bit in the bodice area so it fits correctly.


No bustle since I'm not having a reception in that dress.

had my dress fitting last Friday.  Went perfectly


the jewelry, the headband, the shoes, it all works so well, just makes me smile.  The dress fits well in the waist/hips, which surprises me.  She is doing the hem, replacing the corset with a zipper and satin covered buttons and putting cups in the bodice so I don't have to wear a bra.


Can't wait!
