Your dress is beautiful and you look stunning! I like the skirt you had it changed to. The detail on it is amazing. Great choice!

It’s going to look gorgeous, I’m sure! Waiting is hard, but I am sure you’ll be happy when it arrives and you get to see it in person. Beautiful dress!

Yes!  I just had my first fitting on August 31, and I am very anxious to see my dress after the alterations and cutting down!  When I ordered my dress, I had just finished a round of steroids and had bulked up a bit, although it was mostly water.  But 10 pounds is 10 pounds, even on my 5’7 (and 3/4!) frame.  By the time my dress came in, I had lost the 10 pounds and then some (approx 15 total), bringing me down to right about 128.  Needless to say, there is a whole lotta takin in goin on!

I am sure your dress will be gorgeous – I love the alterations you are having done!  Have you read Mrs. Champagne’s blog?  She chose a very similar Casablanca gown and had it altered from an a-line to more of a mermaid/trumpet, very much like what you are having done.  She, and her dress, were stunning!  You should definitely check out her posts.

I think your dress is gorgeous and will be even better the way you decribed the changes. But I too am questioning my dress while waiting. It’s only been around 3 weeks since I ordered it but I see all these gorgeous pics with the sweetheart neckline, now I think I like those better. I still love my dress, but the waiting is playing tricks on my brain.

It’s beautiful!  You are going to look great!!  I think the changes you are going to make is going to make it look even better on you than the picture. 

And I had the same problem after ordering my dress.  I started to second guess, worry I should have gotten a different one, or that it wouldn’t look good.  It came in last week and I went to pick it up Sunday.  All fears flew out the window as soon as I had it on again.  I ordered it as a petite and that just made a huge differenece.

Don’t worry, your going to look amazing!
