Hi bees! I had my second dress fitting on Saturday and I am officially MORE obsessed with my dress now as I was when I bought it! Since ordering the gown over a year ago, I have lost about 30 pounds. I have been SERIOUSLY stressing about alterations, since the dress is fully lace. At my first fitting I put the dress on and it was big. LIKE REALLY BIG. It looked like an A-line gown instead of fit and flare. If it weren’t for my undergarments my poor seamstress would have gotten a free show.
Seriously folks, I don’t know how these amazing seamstresses can work their magic! My dress is fitted to perfection now and is exactly my vision! (With just a few changes as you’ll see below). I CAN’T wait to wear it in 2.5 weeks down the aisle!
Feel free to post pics of you in your gorgeous dresses, as well!

Back of the dress, unbustled. (The seamstress is altering the veil so the lace meets at the comb, that’s why my girls are holding it like that)
