My dress just came in on Friday (after a 6 month wait) and I went to try it on Saturday. OMG it’s huge LOL So huge that the corset back was not visible at all when she clamped it together.

I called the alterations lady and she scheduled me for August 22. I don’t assume the length will need alterations but it has to be taken in a lot.

 

The dress is staying at the store for the whole thing until 2 days prior to the wedding or even the day before. SO i don’t have to log it anywhere… phew! cuz it’s heavy

I had my first dress fitting 3 weeks ago.  The long alterations timeframe is mostly due to the complexity of the fixes.  I’m 4’11”, dress was about 7″ too long, and the lace hem and lower applique pieces have to be taken off, the tulle + 4 layers of my dress cut to the correct length, and then the lace hem needs to be reattached, so the boutique scheduled a few fittings starting in July.  So far we have measured the length alterations, and as the date approaches I’m getting the bodice adjusted as well.

My first fitting is next Saturday (Aug 31st). I’m so excited, but I’m nervous too. I just hope it turns out like I have been hoping!
