Today I had my first fitting. I was so nervous, having gained weight. But the dress fits! It’s not a perfect fit yet and still have to lose a bit more but it’s definitely better than I had hoped for. It still crawls up a bit and you can see my muffin top fatties but still. I love it. It hardly needs alterations too.
I am so utterly in love with the dress. It’s so light and soft and beautiful.
My mom was super sweet and made a fake bouquet with lavender and olive leaves, just like I want in my real bouquet. And I was already wearing the veil that I wanted, and the accessories. I’m just doubting whether I want to wear the necklace or not. I got it from my fiance for my thirtieth birthday and it’s beautiful. But it might also take away from the neckline. What do you think? My mom and sister vote against the necklace but I’m not sure yet. My sister also changed my updo a bit, loosened it up a bit. Think I prefer that.
Anyway, picture time!
What do you think??

I love that dress; it looks so perfect on you. Great choice!! 🙂
p.s. I would lean toward not doing a necklace with that dress — the neckline is enough. But if it’s meaningful to you to wear that necklace you have pictured, I say go for it, because it’s dainty enough not to make a big difference. So, either way (not helpful, I realize!).

Soooo pretty!! Love the cutout in the back. I don’t think the necklace takes away at all because it’s so delicate. It looks lovely either way. Great choice!

I think the necklace is perfect especially since it has sentimental value! It’s tiny enough that it’s just a nice accent and doesnt take away from anything. You look beautiful!!

really? The Lara by Sottero and Midgley? Do you have pictures? Would love to see them!
Thanks for the compliments everyone! Will still need to decide on the necklace, your input is very valuable!
