Yay, I got a letter saying my dress is in! (I thought it was kinda weird to get a postcard and not a phone call, but whatever…)
Question: would you schedule a time to try it on right away, even though you’re not having an official “fitting” for a few months?
I’m a size 18, and the dress I tried on was an 8 or 10, so it obviously didn’t fit, and I just want to get a better sense for how my dress will actually look on me, how it will look with my accessories, what kind of bra (etc) I should get, and make sure that it acually zips!
Good idea to go try it on, or crazy bridezilla-y idea?

Not bridezilla-y at all! Also, I’m paranoid so I would just want to make sure the right dress/size was ordered. It would be better to find out now than closer to the wedding!

@ferdie224: Go try it on! I went by the week after it came in. I used the excuse that I wanted try veils on with the dress so that I could figure out which style looked best with it. Partially true, but really, I just waned to see it and make sure I still love it, haha. It was good to see it, try it on, fit in it, wear some veils, and have that peace of mind. Also, the jeweled belt on the dress was sewn crooked, so at least I know that that needs to be fixed when I go into alterations.

I’m in the same situation – mine is due 3 months before my date. I will be trying it on to check it fits and think about accessories.

I’m sure they get this all the time! Just call let them know that you’d like to try it on (it is your property, legally!) and figure otu what else you need to get for it, like lingerie and accessories. They should be fine with it and won’t think anything of it as long as you are polite and gracious.
I hope it turns out beautifully; take pictures for us if you can!

Can’t wait to see what this dress looks like on you – it’s one of my favourites and I thought you looked fantastic in the sample.
