When to my first dress fitting today, just me and my mother since the seamstress kinda got us in in the last minute. I had full intentions of going in and telling her to hem it up a inch or two (or maybe even three depending on how it looked) up off the floor because we’re having a outside ceremony and I don’t want any part of my dress dragging the ground (and I have super cute shoes). As she was pinning the back of the dress (it needed to be taken in a little bit too) she asked about hemming and I told her about the outdoor ceremony. So, she started pinning the hem up just barely off the ground… and I said nothing. Then she gets to the back and asks about the train and a this point my confidence is failing. I did manage to get out that I was thinking about cutting the train off because I was worried about it getting dirty. My mom then piped in that we were having an aisle runner, not to worry about it, and to leave the train on (we’ve talked about the runner before, and I’m against it because I just can’t make it look right in my head because of how the ceremony site’s going to be set up). Long story short, I guess I’m going to have a longer dress than I thought I would.
IDK what my problem is, but I just can’t seem to be assertive around people I don’t know very well. Being around my mom doesn’t help (she’s definitely not afraid to let you know her opinion), and especially worse if I think it’s going to lead to a public argument…. lol I guess that’s why it was just me and FI at the florist/caterer/everyone else.
