I bought my dress almost 18 months ago, right after I got engaged. Its been hanging in my closet ever since. I thought I loved the dress, and I think I still do.
but this morning in preparing to leave for my first fitting (trying to pull my hair back and curl it similar to the style of the day, getting my shoes ready, etc) I am honestly freaking out. What if I put it on and hate it? And my other (opposite) thought is – my dress has been safe in my closet where I can see it every day – what am I going to do without it here? Anyone else have worries like this or am I just being ridiculous?
Any inspiration, encouragement, ideas would be appreciated. Thank God for this site and all of you to bounce ideas off of!

I hope your fitting went well! I wouldn’t worry about it not being in your closet. You’ll have it back soon enough. Mine has lived at the dress shop for just over a year, where they’ve taken very good care of it.

I bet it will go great! Nerves/excitement are normal.

Thanks everyone – it ended up going so well. I returned my fingertip veil and traded up for a chapel length and when she added that to the dress I started crying like a baby! The dress was still the dress I fell in love with and can’t wait to wear in 33 days.
Man, these ups and downs of the wedding planning process are killing me. I’m hoping I’m on an upswing now all the way to the wedding day!
