I really liked my dress when I bought it and at my first fitting where the straps I added and my permanent bustle was pinned.
Tonight I went for my final fitting and I cried. When I put it on, the way the bustle was done, it made it look like I had a huge puff of fabric coming out of one side…it looked HORRIBLE. Not really the seamstress’ fault since the lady at the bridal salon is the one that first pinned it.
At first the seamstress didn’t think she could do anything but then had an idea and pulled out the stitches and lowered the bustle points so the fabric would lay flatter. It made it look 100 times better. However, I won’t see the dress again until a week or so before my wedding. I’m afraid it still won’t look right and I will be miserable when I pick it up.
Even though it seems it will be an easy fix, this took the wind out of my sails. I just wanted something to go right for once and I feel like the experience of seeing my dress one more time before the week of the wedding was ruined. Now I have all these thoughts going through my head that I am going to look horrible on my wedding day.
It’s so silly and I’m sure all will be fine but I just needed to vent!
