I just made my appointment to go see my dress this Saturday!!!! Squeeeeee!!!!
So what should I bring or expect? I have my undergarments and shoes, and we're not doing fittings yet anyway... but any suggestions, besides an awesome camera?
One of FI's classmates is also a Marine with a JAG contract, and he and his wife are invited to our wedding and we've all become quite close as we know we'll be together through TBS. Anyway, I asked if she was willing to go with me, and she said yes! So I don't have to go alone - hurray!
My sash was shipped and arrived at my parents' house (silly vendor didn't send it to where I had asked - but the results are beautiful, so I'm going to let it all go, and I'm going up to visit my parents in 2 weeks so I'll just bring it back then). It does mean that I won't get to try it on with my dress, but that's okay! Something to look forward to - we'll start fittings in May.
Here's the sash:
And with the matching hairpiece:

And here's the dress (not me in it - you can see that on my planning bio under "Attire" in my siggy). This is a really good pic of the bodice and the lacework:
I'm sooooo excited!
