- Wedding: September 2011
So ladies, Im not sure quite why Im writing this, I think mainly just to vent and get it out of my system, and have maybe a teensy pity party?lol
A brief background;Ive been planning our wedding for a year now, and absolutley nothing about it has stressed me out. I mean nothing, Im normally a really laid back,chilled out person. If things didnt go the way I originally wanted them, I simply shrugged my shoulders and found an alternative.
So now onto the problem. I broke down yesterday. Full out tears,streaming snot, stamping feet all included… I went to our venue to meet our photographer, hand in our ceremony music and make sure the CD worked on their system.
First bad thing,the CD didnt work. So that started me out in a bad mood. However our photgrapher was beyond amazing,friendly,easy to talk to and just perfect in suiting our style that we wanted for photos.
So I went back to my Grans house a little bummed out about the CD and thinking of solutions to that particluar problem, but focusing on how good the photgrapher was. My gran (who has my dress at her house) suggests I try my dress on just to try and cheer me up. Instead I had this horrible feeling in the pit of my stomach. I love my dress but I was just dreading putting it on today for some reason.
Anyway I go upstairs to try it, and guess what bees? The damn thing doesnt fit!!!!!
Last time I tried it on,it was perfect,needed no alterations (this was about 4 weeks ago) nothing. This time, its small by around 4 inches. I cant believe it, I was absolutely heartbroken. And this was my moment of breakdown shame. In tears, trying really really hard to stop crying and think logically,all I could keep saying to my gran was to just burn the goddamn dress, I never wanted to see it again, I dont care do what you want etc
When we were at the 6 week out mark, Id taken the dress to a seamstress jsut in case I would ever need to have it altered and she told me she could let it out no problem whatsoever (lots of spare material in the seams and zip) but she would not need the dress till 3 weeks out as she works quite qucikly on dresses.
So my gran spoke to her today about bringing in the dress for emergency surgery lol, and the seamstress said to bring it and myself in on Saturday. The bit Im panicking about is that she didnt ask my gran for any details, just to come in on saturday and sort it out then.
So now Im oulling my hair out thinking we will turn up on saturday and she will say she hasnt got enough time to do the alterations (2 weeks on saturday till the day)
Im over my little tantrum now (still worried but there is no tears or snot in sight) but I have warned my Fiance that I may well turn up on the day in jeans and a t-shirt lol. Hes cool with that.
Any words of comfort or advise ladies?And thank you for sticking with me on this!
