- Wedding: August 2012 - W Hotel Silicon Valley
This is a RANT I had a total MELTDOWN on Wednesday because my first fitting went so horribly. I should have known better than to take my dress to a DRY CLEANER/alterations place. UGH, live and learn.
Anyway, this lady looked so nervous when I put on the dress, had no idea how to do a proper bustle for it (two button bustles for a 10-layer tulle skirt? It was still totally on the ground!) The way she adjusted the bust area for some reason made the back tighter and now it squeezes me, and she kept trying to convince me that it looked fine! It definitely did not look fine at all! When the top didn’t fit right either, she told me to put TAPE on the chest area so it would fit to me. WHAT! I did not get my dress altered so I could use tape!!! I did pretty good not going all bridezilla on her, but I was clearly upset. So we snatched the dress from her and my mom searched high and low to find me an appointment with someone else for the next day.
I took it to n ACTUAL seamstress yesterday with amazing Yelp reviews, who absolutely knows what she’s doing. She loves her job, and is definitely going to be able to fix my dress. THANK GOODNESS. Crisis averted!! She is a so great, she fit me in to her super busy schedule two weeks before my wedding and my first fitting with her is next Wednesday. Relief feels so great! I can’t wait. Anyway, here are some photos from yesterday, just for fun! Excuse my iPhone eyes.
