- Wedding: March 2011
So, last week I got a call from my dress man, Stuart, letting me know that my dress had arrived and asked if I wanted to come try it on. I couldn’t believe it was here since it wasn’t expected until the last week of December / first week of January – so I was over the moon!!!
I booked the appointment for 2pm on Saturday and was counting down the hours before I’d get to see it and finally put it on. Then, it started snowing – and it kept snowing. Don’t get me wrong, I love the snow and it’s so beautiful – but it meant that roads were closing, especially the route I’d be taking to my dress man. I was preparing myself for big disappointment. Luckily, the sun came out and the roads started to clear, and my darling boy decided we’d chance it.
I did have some doubts about the sizing since they measured me months ago and I knew I’d have to lose a few inches around the middle for it to me just right – and I thought my chest wouldn’t be quite big enough for it as well. But somehow, somehow it was just right! The woman lacing me up kept saying over and over again “it’s a good size, it’s a good size, oh it’s a good fit!” I could not believe my luck!
Now all that has to be done is the making of the bolero. I am truly the luckiest girl in the world!!!
