Your dress is so beautiful! 

I tried on my dress right before my period last month and I could barely breathe and my boobs practically spilled out. It was horrible. I haven’t tried my dress on again because of it. Tons of healthy eating and working out so mid-June I can try and fit into it again, but right now I just don’t want to imagine myself in my dress. T_T 

I understand your pain. I get really bloated and I get breakouts everywhere! I have a strapless dress, so it’s no bueno.

I went dress shopping on my period. Totally unintentional but it covered me for any unexpected bloat.

You’ll be fine! Better than fine actually! You’ll lose 5 pounds the week of anyway, just because. And yes lots of water and maybe some Scenna tea 🙂 your dress is adorable-I love you in-you look stunning! Is the bow painted on? And the polka-dot tulle is amazing! 

Also-are you getting married on June 30th? That’s my 1 year anniversary-I wish I could go back and live it all over again. Have so much fun-it will be the best day of your life!

A) I LOVE your dress! That bow/ribbon is just too awesome!


and as far as the dreaded period bloat…. when I’m on mine I gain this hideous potbelly and its like nothing I own fits right or comfortably.  I hate the period bloat. HATE.  

Wait out the week, try on the dress again, and everything will be right as rain.   I plan on trying my dress on one week before the wedding, that way I can judge fit and see if I need to loose or gain any weight.

Totally off topic, but is the blue ribbon printed  onto your dress or is it a sash?  Either way, you and your dress are both adorable!
