I’m nervous bees, today is my first fitting.
The bridal salon is being featured in a story about 1st fittings in Brides magazine and they picked me to be photographed for it! I want to change the look of my dress a bit and I hope I can keep focused to get my point across. I don’t want to get distracted by the camera and forget something!
Wish me luck bees I will update with pictures when I get home this after noon

Cool and awesome!! But yes, don’t be scared off by the camera to make your point! I know I probably would be a bit and would tell them before the cameras started rolling about the changes.

Write down the changes you want and put them in your purse. Before you leave look at your list just to be sure you told them everything. Have fun–how exciting!!!

Thanks for all of the support and the good advice ladies!
It went really well! I was 1 of 6 brides picked to do the photo shoot for our first fitting. When I got there they did my hair and makeup. The seamstress sat and talked with me while they were dolling me up and I got to show her the pictures I printed out for the alterations I wanted done.
When hair and makeup were done I got into my dress for the first time! It was more beautiful than I had remembered. The lace is so soft and light, and comfortable! LOVE IT! The seamstress pinned me into the dress (it was huge on me!) and we made our way to the photographer.
They basically just photographed her pinning and marking the alterations, and then me standing in the dress. They interviewed me about my relationship, why I picked the dress and how I knew it was the one for me. The story will most likely be in the December issue! So Exciting!
So here’s my dress:
But I want the skirt to be shaped more like this:
And here’s me in the dress!:
