- Wedding: October 2013
Hello, all! I went in yesterday for my first fitting, and I love my dress. Just wanted to share some pics! The veil in the pictures is white, too white for my dress, but I’m going to try to get an ivory one. The seamstress showed me two bustles. The over-bustle is okay, but I love the French. (The bustles in the photos are just pinned, not sewn in yet.) I’m also happy with my necklace, which my grandma inherited from her mother, who passed away last year. I visited my grandma over the weekend and asked her about jewelry for the wedding, and she gave me the necklace. 🙂
After the first set of alterations, the dress is too tight in the hips and will need to be let out some so that I can sit. Anybody see anything else that needs to be fixed? I’ll probably wear my hair this way, or similar.
