@kendorah:  

I loved my dress! I never thought I would buy a dress with sleeves, but it was appropriate for a winter wedding. I will be getting pictures back from my photographer very soon and I had her take some detail pictures of my dress. I will be sure to show you! My bridesmaids all wore Alfred Angelo satin dresses in the color Moonlight Waltz. They chose different styles, but they were all the same length, fabric, and color.

Every time I look at the picture of the back of my dress, I freak out. I’m so worried that my back fat will hang out of it. I had to try the size 8 sample at the store and I ordered the 18 but the but will have to be taken in. Am I worrying for nothing? Do you ladies think I’ll have issues? I couldn’t zip up the back so I’m not sure where the back falls and the store is 1.5 hours away so it’s not easy to just pop over and try it on again. I’m so worried!

Got my Bonny dress in and it’s too tight! 2 women at the bridal salon measured me and they both got the same measurements but still, the dress is too tight 🙁 It zips up, but the inner corset doesn’t close and I can’t sit down in the dress. So, I’m wondering if I should get it switched to a corset back and hope it works or bust my ass and try to lose 10-20lbs before the wedding.

I’m worried that if I have it altered to a corset back, a seamstress could possibly ruin the dress if she messes it up.

Here I am in my dress (which doesn’t look tight at all from the pics)

@jennyinstereo:  I’m sorry your dess dosn’t fit.  It is beautiful though!  I love it!

If i were you I’d try to loose some weight and see where I am in 2 month and if it is still the same then I’d get it altered.

Make an apointment now though for the begining of Aug.  You’ll prob need to get the lenghs altered anyway.

I’m not sure how a cosert would look with the sash.  I think it may be too much.

Good luck.

Well I had what was supposed to be my final fitting last night but the dress is still a bit too tight. It zips up but the seam around the waist and the boning dig into my stomach and hurt so much. So, we’re loosening the waist and shortening the boning. Final fitting is on Saturday. I’m so nervous! Worst case scenario, we put in a corset back.

Here are some pics of my Bonny 232 from the fitting last night with the Bonny 1299 jacket:
