So we’re getting married in August. I can’t wait! We are away from where we are getting wed so planning has been hard but we’ve been up home this week and have got loads done! 😀 Feeling pleased! We have our cars now, and sorted all the ceremony details! 🙂 yay. Also the wedding planner at the venue said we can make our own centre peices so I am MADE UP! 😀 yay!!! We also met with the photographer (and we love him and his work!!!) and spoke about lots of day-of things! 🙂 I get ridi stressed with things so this has put my mind at rest! 🙂 So pleased and proud we got lots done this week!
The fear is – I wanted to try my dress on with my new bra but I got badly burned (scalded by hot coffee) at my hen/batchelorette party on Saturday and have been unable. I have also, because of being in quite a lot of pain and feeling sorry for my self (cue violin!) been scoffing like my own body weight in food! I really want to try it on before I go back home, as I won’t get a chance before Easter, now. Thing is…Should I? My arm is messed up and looks gross and I’m not yet to terms with the fact I’ll be scarred for wedding day PLUS I have dressings still on it. Should I try the dress on to see what the underwear looks like? Or just leave it for now coz I’m still a mess of dressings, blisters and ooze and have a ‘food baby’ due to comfort eating. lol. Should I risk the shock? Or risk the not trying on? lol

@mecattacow: Eeek! That sounds so painful, I’m so sorry that happened to you. Big virtual hugs (which are probably better than real hugs at this point). I would say wait until you’re healed up. Burned skin is extremely delicate, so I wouldn’t risk it. Also, you’re eating more because your body is trying to heal. Try taking a multi vitamin, if you don’t already, and drink tons of water. Wishing you a speedy recovery!

ummm …. I say try it on now … with dressing and see how you feel. If you feel awful dont remove the dressing if you feel brave remove it
I feel like you have to come to terms with it before your actual wedding. Yes you risk upsetting yourself but id hate for you to feel that way just before your wedding. Also it will have considerable heeled by Easter so by the time you try on your dress again youll notice an improvement.
Next thing … dont forget about it and neglect it. Natural aloe vera does wonders for healing burns and also adds a soothing sensation.

Try it on you’ll probably stop feeling sorry for yourself. I also burnt myself with hot glue on my left hand! I’m usin polysporin like crazy in hopes of diminishing this huge scar. It’s not working so far but I’m hoping that by august (month twins) I’ll barely be able to see it. 🙂

Hmmm…is there a chance you’ll get ointment or fluid on your dress? Or will you hurt the scarring/healing process? If not, go for it!
Also..try Mederma for the scars. I have a scar that it did WONDERS for.
