My next fitting should be on the 16th (a month out from the wedding) and only minor alterations should be needed after that. I hope to have it at around the same time as you (about two weeks out from the wedding)! πŸ™‚

@Rivendeler:  I’m totally excited! I can’t wait to see it once the alterations are all finished up! πŸ™‚

My next fitting is May 19th. Yippee! The dress is staying at my parents’ house for safe keeping, but I have been showing it off to bridesmaids and close friends. πŸ˜€

I have mine (finally!) – but it needs some slight alterations. The seamstress I plan to take it to begged me to wait until after prom season πŸ™‚

So in a few weeks, I’ll be able to get it perfect. It just needs hemming and to be taken in slightly in the bodice.

My second fitting in on Thursday, May 10th. I think the final fitting will be on May 25th. I’m not sure when I’ll be able to bring it home, but I’m going to store it as my FMIL’s house so that my fiance doesn’t see.

During this second fitting I’m bringing a strapless bra and a long-line corset thingy, and I’m going to decide to use either of those or go bra-less! (I’m an A-cup). The dress has a fit of a corset in it already.

I did the unthinkable – I showed Fiance my bridal portrait!  I know, I know….I couldn’t resist though!  I don’t keep any secrets from this man!  My mother would die.  He just stared at it and said “Wow.  Wow.  You look so beautiful.  I’m not going to be able to hold back tears on the wedding!”  Then he started tearing up.  Success!  I think the day of will be totally different, though.  Much more emotional.

 

My mom’s friends are picking up the dress the day before and taking it to the church to fall out.  My mom had a bad experience with her house burning down the DAY BEFORE she was to bring the dress home.  She likes the idea of it being nice and safe in a fire-proof, flood-proof room at the bridal boutique until as close as possible!

My second fitting is at the end of this month. Depending how that goes I may have one more. If it’s all good to go I’ll be storing it at my Mum’s place.
