Today was a big day for me! I saw my dress for the first time since 10 months!!! In the last months I had huge dress doubts, especially, when I looked at the (bad quality) cell phone pics we had made of it. I was thinking: maybe my mom, sister and maid of honor made me buy this dress, maybe I didn’t like it even back then…
So I drove to the store today with strange feelings – I really hoped I won’t hate my dress, when I see it again…
Ok, I tried it on and carefully opened my eyes, turned around, had a critical look and walked down the way to a bigger mirror…
…and I felt like a model in pure Dupioni silk walking down the catwalk of Justin Alexander ;). The dress gives me this beautiful feeling of being so special – I guess that’s what a bride should feel like. I have to say I really, really love it and I’m so relieved, now! Wow, I have goose bumps right now, when I think of MY dress!
Picking out THE dress and waiting for THE day is such an emotional process. I know a lot of you have or had dress-doubts, but let me tell you: Don’t let the doubts turn into regrets before you tried the dress on a second time! You bought the dress, because it was beautiful and made you feel special! I trust that this gives some of you some hope for your first fitting :).
And here are the pics we took today (before alterations).

Your dress is lovely and you look so happy in it 🙂 I had the same experience. I had doubts for months, and then when it finally came in I was so happy and I couldn’t believe I ever questioned the dress. It’s a great feeling!

I love your dress and the look on your face is just priceless : you look so happy and excited!! I have had my share of dress-anxiety and still have a little but I am sure that once I have put her back on during my first fitting (not until halfway July eeks!) everything will fall into place again.
You will make a very beautiful bride this July!
