My dress is at home in my closet, unaltered. I have to wait until Dec/Jan for my first fitting and I’ve probably tried on my dress 5 times since I brought it home. I’ve lost 16 lbs since I tried on the dress and I can tell it’s loose. But IT IS SO OBNOXIOUS that I don’t hae a full-length mirror to try it on with at home!!
I’m losing my mind waiting for my fitting appointment to see the dress on me from head to toe again. I have to stand on my bed to see the whole dress, but then it makes the skirt look weird while I sink into the mattress. I. just. can’t. wait.
Can anyone else relate?!

Go to Wal-Mart and get a full length mirror for like under $20! So worth it 🙂

Yep. I have a $100 full length mirror and a $20 one. Both work great 😉 but cheaper is better!

@csteen85: I have the same problem. I try it on for friends and have them take pictures for me. I had a $5 mirror from walmart when I was living in dorms and I wish I hadn’t thrown it out.

You sound just like me. Except for the weight loss, I’m still trying there… But my dress is already a little big. I bought it as a sample. I keep trying it on and try to contort my body in strange ways to pull it back the way I think it will be once it fits but it never looks right! Even with the full length mirror!! And there’s not enough room between me & the mirror to really get a good look. I’m getting so impatient!
At one point, I did make an appointment to go back to the store & have them pin it so I could get some better pictures, but my Mom’s cell phone pictures were terrible!

Thats why my gown is at my mother in laws house, which is less than 10 minutes from the bridal shop for alterations. I don’t obesse over putting it on. Bee’s we picked our gowns because we loved how we looked in them! Just enjoy the fact you found your gown, and keep on planning! Lots of other wedding details to worry about. 😉
