I went this weekend for my second dress fitting and I am trying to love my dress. I fell in love with it from the moment I put it on. It was only the third dress in my search. I love the bottom of the dress. As in from the hip down it is wonderful but the bust area is really making me cringe for some reason.
The gathering of the fabric seems too harsh and also there seems to be something odd happening on the sweetheart top. It looks to me like the top tulle is not as covering in some areas leaving it bare almost? (Did that make sense at all?)
I have one more fitting before the wedding and she is still taking in the hips and smoothing them out by snipping the boning that is poking out. She’s also taking in the butt area to make it show off my figure more and of course the hem! It’s being taken up as well.
What do you guys think of my dress? Is it as awful as I seem to think or is my over analyzing mind taking over and ruining my fun? I can’t figure it out.

@jenm2be: I really love it. I think its a perfect blend of sexy/sweet. With the alterations that you mentioned, I think it will fit you perfectly! It does seem a lot for her to do all before your last fitting. I may try to ask them to make room for maybe one late touch up. These people are amazing and usually can get so much done in short tiem frames. I would just be concerned that usually at your last fitting you are just doing touch ups, not entire hems and trying to change the shape (by taking it in by your tush). Not to worry you, I would just ask if they could squeeze you in somewhere in case it needs anything else, after those alterations are made.

I think the dress looks gorgeous on you! I think it’s easy to over analyze everything about our weddings. So much pressure is put on us to have the perfect dress, perfect hair and makeup, the perfect venue etc. Just remember you fell in love with the dress for a reason! And I bet once you see everything together you will wonder why you ever had any doubts.
