- Wedding: September 2012
I loved my dress when I tried on the sample and I started to love it a bit less and the alterations got out of hand and the dress I ended up with didn’t fit as well as the sample I had tried on. I’ve posted elsewhere about my alterations issues (five fittings and $600!).
I didn’t take any pre-wedding photos of me in my dress, not of me trying on the sample or at any of my fittings or anything.
Ladies! Learn from my mistake! Make sure you get pictures of you in your dress beforehand!
If only I had known what I was going to look like in photos…
Needless to say, as I’ve gotten some photos back from guests, I hate the way I look in my dress. To me, it looks poorly fitting and unflattering. No one commented about it and my darling husband said he thought I looked gorgeous and didn’t notice anything wrong with the dress. But in all the pictures, the silhouette of the dress doesn’t look very nice.
I’m hoping some people, and especially the professional photographers, ended up with at least a few flattering pictures.
I never thought I’d be one to say this, but I’m honestly thinking about doing a trash the dress session because now I HATE my dress and never want to see it again.
