- Wedding: July 2012
Just need to gloat for a bit, lol.
I lost 26 pounds since November, and I had my final dress fitting yesterday. When I tried on the dress last fitting, the corset laced back was suppose to come in a nice V formation. Well, mine looked more like a tornado shape because my booty was so big. They told me they would have to let it out at the final fitting.
Because of my weight loss, the dress fit PERFECT! No alterations at all! The dress V-ed perfectly in the back, the bust fit better, and for a bride with a figure (small waist, big hips and booty) I looked amazing. Seeing my mom cry always let’s me know that it must be perfect. (Love you mommy)
My mother found her MOB dress, which is fabulous AND I tried on a Rehearsal Dinner dress that everyone liked, but then I tried on this:
And everyone said “this is the one.” It makes my waist still look tiny, and it flows at the hips. The flow doesn’t make me look wide, but takes the focus off my hips and look at my waist. Have to wear a white slip or shorts under it because it’s a little sheer, but that is not a big deal. It is just gorgeous, and I am so excited to wear it (and I am def. going to feel more comfortable at the rehearsal in the church).
Throughout all of this, my mother forgot to take a picture of me in my wedding gown, lol. Everyone was too focused at filming how the bustle gets done, so my aunt can reference it the day of the wedding, lol.
Haven’t felt this good in the last 3 months. Glad I had a good moment for me. Weddings are very drama-filled and stressful as hell. This was a nice break 🙂
