- Wedding: June 2018
I went to my second dress fitting yesterday after a VERY disappointing first fitting back in February. I had gained almost twenty pounds since buying my dress and when I went to put it on again for the first time, it barely zipped up and the poor boning was working so hard to squeeze me in. Not a cute look. I buckled down and started hitting the gym, eating cleaner and being really strict about drinking. The number on the scale wasn’t moving as quickly as I wanted it to and I didn’t really feel like I was making THAT much progress. I went to my second fitting yesterday with my Maid/Matron of Honor after we got boudoir pics taken (so I got to see myself all glammed up in the dress…a totally different look than I’ll have on my wedding day but it was still fun). I held my breath as my consultant zipped me up, and literally got emotional when it fit perfectly. My Maid/Matron of Honor, who had never seen me in my dress, got emotional as well. It hit me that I am getting married in less than two months, and everything started feeling so real. I have spent so many months recently just not feeling beautiful or confident with the weight gain and other stressful things, but I finally feel like the beautiful bride I’m going to be, and I can’t wait for my fiance to see me in my dress. Pics of both fittings are attached!
