- Wedding: June 2015
I’m so be married June 19th… in Cabo San Lucas, MX!!! So excited!!
The story begins within just a few months of our enagement. My sister (MOH), best friend (bridesmaid), and I, started the daunting task of finding the perfect dress. To keep the story short I found my dress at a fairly new bouquet in the SODO district in Seattle, WA.
The dress was PERRRFECCTTT, it fit well in all the right places (it is Sophia Tolli – Magnolia) …hugged my curves to perfection. Anyways, I ordered the dress in 10…not a 12 like suggested. My reasoning for the size down was because the sample (I thought along with my sister and bestie) that is was a 12… and it fit a little large. So I ordered the dress in a 10.
It took roughly 6 wks for the dress to come in. (Not bad at all!)
I had my first dress fitting in January …. the dress was quite TIGHT!!!! I have to say it was a bit tight in the thighs, but I figured that could be fixed.. I was regularly working out doing my best to get in bikini shape for Cabo in June. The consultant suggested I come back in two months for another fitting, and then we could beginning the actual fitting/alterations based on those results.
So, my best friend and I went into the shop TODAY… for the fitting…let me tell everyone reading this… I have been working my ass of to get in better shape sense that first fitting….reality hit hard that day.. I needed to do more training (cardio…bla bla blah…) so I have done the advocare challenge(lost no weight…but I lost 14inches all over) … I joined a private training facility (VIGOR GROUND in Renton!!!! There is a great groupon for it) that is absolutle worth every penny!! Its always a group bootcamp style …hiit training which pushed me to the max along with private sessions once a wk.
So, back to the topic… the lady brings out my dress… I go to put it on….dum dum dummmmmm
SHITTTT…. the first thought that jumped into my mind as I was trying to pull the tight satin dress over my A**….. turned out my dress wouldn’t not fit over my bottom anymore as it had during the first fitting…. Due to all the training my A** and thighs had toned up and lifted … (They look amazing BTW) so now I have a dress that will not work at all due to muscle build to get in shape for the damn wedding.
Luckily there was an option…. they still had the sample size – (a 14) … reminder the one I ordered was a 10 – they had suggested a 12… (silly/stuborn me!! Not listening)
So to wrap a potenitally horrible wedding dress mess… I put on the 14 … it was in pretty good condition for being the sample… they let me exhange the “new dress” for the sample… and with hemming/alterations and a good cleaning with repairs to some of the lace…it should be perfect.. and I believe I will have more room for my Kardastian sized A** as well if it decided to perk up anymore.
I think God was looking out for me today, that’s for sure.
Just a bit of advice and moral of the story… do not EVER order down… when they measure.. order that size… you can always take in!!!
I count myself very lucky I was given that option to excahnge, and I didn’t have to ordered another dress at full price or have to reselect.
Thank you for reading 🙂 Plus it feels good to get that all out.
