Hello bees!! Just talked with the wedding dress shop a min ago and i am reall, really excited, which i need, badly!!! My next dress trial (final) was scheduled for May 12th but i read a couple of bad reviews about the store at a local wedding site (http://www.onossocasamento.pt) and i got very anxiouse. So i called the shop and now i am trying the dress after minor adjustments (height, mainly) AND bringing everything home (dress, shoes and omg, veil!) on the 25th!!! 2 weeks before the wedding and so many thoughts are crossing my mind just now!!
“where will i put it? i don’t want Fiance to see it!” (we live together)
“Shall i resist the temptation of showing it before the wedding day, to my neighbor and friend ?” and “Will i show it to my girls before the wedding???” ( i have a 12 and a 4 years old)
I CAN’T WAIT to hold my weddign dress in my hands..you see, i never dreamt with marriage..and whenever i used to listen to bells singing from the nearby church i always thought “those bells will not sing for me..ever”, with a deep saddness..and now they will..can u immagine??

My next fitting should be on the 16th (a month out from the wedding) and only minor alterations should be needed after that. I hope to have it at around the same time as you (about two weeks out from the wedding)! 🙂

I have mine (finally!) – but it needs some slight alterations. The seamstress I plan to take it to begged me to wait until after prom season 🙂
So in a few weeks, I’ll be able to get it perfect. It just needs hemming and to be taken in slightly in the bodice.

🙂 So wonderful to find here people exactly in the same boat as me :-). My practical, not-so-romantic family don’t get it so i give up. They will never understand me, which is sad.
Can u believe yesterday i tried to show my wedding night nighgown to Fiance and he ran from it??? Said he doesn’t want to see it till the day..humm..ok..

My second fitting in on Thursday, May 10th. I think the final fitting will be on May 25th. I’m not sure when I’ll be able to bring it home, but I’m going to store it as my FMIL’s house so that my fiance doesn’t see.
During this second fitting I’m bringing a strapless bra and a long-line corset thingy, and I’m going to decide to use either of those or go bra-less! (I’m an A-cup). The dress has a fit of a corset in it already.

I did the unthinkable – I showed Fiance my bridal portrait! I know, I know….I couldn’t resist though! I don’t keep any secrets from this man! My mother would die. He just stared at it and said “Wow. Wow. You look so beautiful. I’m not going to be able to hold back tears on the wedding!” Then he started tearing up. Success! I think the day of will be totally different, though. Much more emotional.
My mom’s friends are picking up the dress the day before and taking it to the church to fall out. My mom had a bad experience with her house burning down the DAY BEFORE she was to bring the dress home. She likes the idea of it being nice and safe in a fire-proof, flood-proof room at the bridal boutique until as close as possible!

My second fitting is at the end of this month. Depending how that goes I may have one more. If it’s all good to go I’ll be storing it at my Mum’s place.
