I think your dress is lovely!!  I think you need to look beyond the first fitting feelings and remember how you looked in the dress when you tried on the sample!   I wasn’t truly IN LOVE with how I looked in my dress until the middle of my first fitting and the seamstress pinned the waistline and hip area down to mimic the alterations, and then it was like “powzam!” in love with it.   If you still have lots of work to be done on the dress, it can be hard to see and feel how it will look when it is done.   I wouldn’t worry about how you will look on your wedding day, because on that day you will be just GLOWING!   Seriously, all brides are concerned with how they will look on their wedding day, but all brides are too hard on themselves!

@MrsCW2013:  first off, I want to say that YOU deserve to feel like a beautiful bride on your wedding day, every bride deserves that and I sincerely hope you will! I think it’s normal to feel like that at your first fitting, you fell in love with that dress, it was beautiful, made you feel great, then you try it on again and it doesn’t look so good. It’s natural to feel concerned, BUT dont get worried just yet. If it looked beautiful the first time you tried on the sample have faith in the seamstress to make it beautiful again. I’m sure it’ll turn out great and I hope you feel amazing on your day! Your dress is lovely by the way 🙂

If you have major changes at the first fitting, it’s totally normal to feel not that pretty in the dress.  Pins everywhere, fabric sticking out in all the wrong places… you’ll feel much better when you see the dress fitting you!

I love your dress! When it’s fitted properly, it will be totally different! 🙂
