December 2010 Weddings

Finally!

After all of the hoopla surounding my dress I finally went to the bridal salon I ordered it from, picked it up this afternoon.  I didn't even want to try it on there because the place pissed me off so much.

So I drove it somewhere else where they would alter it and I tried it on there.  To my pleasant surprise it fit perfectly!!! Yay! All she has to do is the bustle! (Although and I'm quoting, "this bustle is going to be a bitch" 8 places, good luck to my MOH)

I started to cry I was so elated. This dress business has been so craptastic, I'm glad that it finally became a good experience again! Yippee!!

Re: Finally!

  • Awesome! Make sure you take a bridesmaid with you for your final fitting, then she can watch the alterations lady bustle it, so she'll know how to do it on your wedding day :)

  • All's well that ends well.  YAY!  So happy it all worked out. :)

  • Girl, my bustle has like twelve places they said.  Good thing I have three sisters!

    Glad it fits and the nightmare is over!
  • What a relief!  I want my sisters to go to my last fitting with me so they can learn how to bustle, I'm pretty sure my mom won't remember and it's going to be crazy!

    <div>This exact thing was said to me. Then she asked if I could bring MOH with me so she could learn how to do it. I told her no, then she got this horrible look on her face and was like "well.. I'll color code the loops... maybe that'll help?" lol.</div><div>
    </div><div>Anyway I'm glad your dress is amazing and that everything got worked out. That's awesome that it fit you and that you don't need any additional alterations.</div>

    Not caring about missing RSVPs because there aren't any rocks!
  • YAY!!!  I'm glad it fits you so well :D

    I've never been more glad that my dress doesn't have a train than I am after reading this post...

    Where we met - Mount Isa
    a small mining town in the Australian Outback. Neither of us are from there but we both moved there in the second last year of highschool. He was moved next to me in maths class to stop him talking. It didn't work.
  • LOL!!! YAAYY!!!

    don't worry, I have 10 places :)
    Everyday is a miracle. Anniversary
  • Makes me very glad my sample dress already had a bustle built into it (along with the bra--another thank gawd after reading another post about how much bras cost-holy buckets!)
    I'm very glad for you that the dress fits you perfectly and all you need it the bustling done.  Yay for color coding too!  We'll all get through it...and remember ladies, there are going to be others there besides your bridal party who will probably know how to bustle a dress so it will be fine.
    The bane of my existence: my bouquet. It's not right yet, it's not what I wanted and I have so far to go with it and so little time! Wedding Countdown Ticker
