So i got the call today my dress has arrived.
Which made me go “SQUEEEE!!” and do a happy dance.
For like 30 seconds.
Now i feel the anxiety rolling in. I’m an uptight, overly self-critical person to begin with. So this is like torture for me. We orderd the dress in the size i was, and i’ve lost some weight (6 lbs), and am still losing (9 to go – I hope). We ordered a petite, but I’m almost as small as they come(5’0″)so i’m worried that it will still need crazy alteration. I was thinking perhaps i might want the strapless neckline to be made into a sweatheart, and my family seems to think that will require far too much work…and the inner monologue keeps going.
I’m just a little nervous. A lot nervous.
Is this sort of anxiety normal? How do you get through it?

I’m also 5’0″ and I’m freaking because I don’t even know if they ordered me a petite. Common sense would say they did, but it’s too late now so I’m debating whether to even bother calling the dress store and asking. I was also considering changing the neckline to a sweethear! I wouldn’t worry about losing weight – it’s pretty easy to take in dresses from what I understand. Do you think because you’re small you will need to take the waistline up? That’s what I’m concerned about…

Its completly normal, and im going through it too. my dress is too big and needs to be taken in, it is also too long and i want the neckline made into a perfect sweatheart – my parents have also said there is no need for all the extra alterations bt its what i want. Im going to give it a bit longer and try the dress on again nearer to my proper fitting and then decide once and for all what im gonna do xx
