So I had my dress fitting today. I knew when I bought the dress I would either need to lose 5 more pounds, wear spanx or have it let out. So i lost 3, bought 4 different types of body shaper things and the seamstress decided it couldn't be let out to make it better. I started crying, the seamstress literally had to excuse herself and take a break, the manager of the boutique just started going all over the store......it was awful. I am not overweight.....5'4" and 122 pounds. - i just have this stomach pooch. She finally comes up to me and hands me this dress and tells me to try it on. I told her I hated the back. She said trust me, try it on. I did and it looked beautiful. Seamstress came back out and everyone in the store was saying how much better this one looked, but of course I still hated the back. Short version.....she is basically remaking the dress from the waist up. Cut the back off and turned it into a halter, opened up the chest, put more beading and such on it. After she pinned it up it looked 200% better and I will be able to eat the first 4 days in Hawaii without worrying whether I'm going to gain an ounce. The dress was $50 more than my old one and they exchanged it, which I was just shocked by. I don't even want to discuss how much the alterations were until i have another glass of wine lol. The seamstress was flipping when she realized I leave in 16 days. I got in my car and wanted to throw up on my shoes. Called FI crying....told him we would talk when I got home. Everything would be okay, it just cost him some money lol. He picked out the original dress so now I'm thinking maybe it wasn't meant for him to see it before the wedding.
Sorry for the length of this. What a day.... I can't believe 3 weeks before the wedding and I'm changing dresses!!
