@bells: I’m the same way! We picked mine up and it’s a few hours away at my Future In-Laws…I was too scared to even take it out of the plastic! I know I need to try it on but I’m nervous it will get dirty or I’ll mess something up.

That’s why I got mine two weeks before the wedding and no sooner *LoL* – I’m obsessed with “Is it gonna fit today!???” – I won’t let myself try it on any more. Two days before the wedding and that’ll be the last time before the wedding…

 

Maybe…

 

Probably not… >_> *Sigh* I have no will power. I think I’m gonna go try it on!

Okay, so take it from me, I’ve had no self control, and I’m perfectly happy doing it.  Yeah, some little things might happen, but I’m happy doing it and I know very well what might happen to my dress.  πŸ™‚  So yeah, I know I should leave it alone, but I don’t really care!!

i think about doing it all the time, but it has a built in corset that i can’t manage on my own, so effectively i wouldn’t even be able to truly see the fit, so i just don’t try it on πŸ™

When I first brought my dress home I wanted to try it on all the time.  Fortunately it takes an extra person to help me put it on since it has a lace up back.  I couldn’t help wanting to show it to all my bridesmaids that didn’t go shopping with me though so I’ve pulled it out of the garment bag a few times…

hahahaha! This is a very funny post — love the cat hair reference! I pulled mine from behind the door several times but couldn’t actually put it on right because of the boning and corsetted top so I gave up trying.  But I unzipped the garment bag constantly when I was home and oohed and aahed to myself! I finally got it out to my Mom’s – including because we have a dog and cat and I figured it the wedding dress would start to smell like a kennel!

I tried mine on once a month before the wedding because I was nervous that it wouldn’t fit.  It’s so fun now after the wedding because I put it on as much as I want without having to worry about it getting dirty.  The sad thing, though, is I gained weight and it doesn’t zip all the way anymore  πŸ™

haha, Evie, have you taken pics? Or are you also afraid your Fi will see them? πŸ™‚ My dress has been in my closet for 4month now, and I have not tried it on once- which is probably weird, but there is just so much material that I am scared I wont get it all in the bag again. πŸ˜‰

Mine requires a corset inside, and has a corset back so its a two person operation.  I think the next time I try it on- it will be to take video so my attendant knows how the heck to get me in there….
