- Wedding: September 2011
So I had my third fitting last night and if you’ve been on the boards for a while you will know that I absolutely LOVE my dress. It was too big and had to be taken in twice. The top, which is sweetheart, was too big but it looked great and was very flattering. Well last night I got to try it on and now that the top fits perfectly, it’s giving me little chicken wings near my armpits. I’m trying not to think about it but I am really so bummed out about it. I think I liked it better when it was too big. It did gape out and separate from my body a little bit but I’d rather that than feel self conscious. And here I thought I’d get through my wedding without dress drama! lol. I’m 30 days out and not sure what to do. Do I call the seamstress and see about her letting it out a bit more? Last night she said she felt the top couldn’t be let out because it still does gap a bit already. It’s hard to explain but the cups almost have changed shape now that they’ve been taken in so much and I’m just not liking it as much as before. She was going to fiddle with the boning and take the sides in a little more (there was a weird pucker where the boning kind of stuck out) and I do have one more fitting before the wedding. Do I have faith that it will look better? Maybe dropping 5 pounds will make me feel better? I’m kicking myself because I was the one who wanted it taken in more and now it might be taken in too much. If I had only known!
Don’t get me wrong, it’s ok and this is not a major crisis. I know no one will be paying as much attention to the “chicken wings” as I will, and the dress does fit me – like a glove really. I just can’t help but get this sinking feeling in my stomach because the dress I loved 150% I now am having doubts about. Is this just “normal” bride worries? I guess I just needed to vent and am looking for some advice/encouragement, etc.
