So this past weekend I picked up my dress from alterations! All I had done was hemming and a bustle but I swear this time it fit better than I remember! I (tried) to do my hair just like Shawnie is going to for the big day and I brought part of my veil to try on with the dress. Eeek! I felt so bride-y and pretty. And COMFORTABLE. I love love love my dress. I bought it a year ago and I'm still absolutely in love. It's totally me, fits like a dream right off the rack and I don't see myself having any problems wearing it all day long. Also, the seamstress is a genius with bustling. She made the most beautiful, easy and lightweight bustle for my dress. There will be no chance of having it fall out.
I can't wait!!
