This past weekend, my parents came to town and my mom and I went to have my first dress fitting!!!!And, it wasn’t a disaster at all! Ok, so I wasn’t expecting it to be a disaster, I was looking forward to it and the whole experience was very exciting. The dress was even more beautiful than I remembered, and my mom and I also picked out a veil that works perfectly with the detailing on the dress. However, I was super stressed the week before because my wedding shoes had not yet arrived (we ordered them online). Luckily, these beauties arrived Friday afternoon, just in the nick of time:
|Yes, you do get to see a picture of my wedding shoes. Consider it a teaser before the dress reveal.|
I picked up my wedding shoes right before I journeyed to Nordstrom to purchase my “foundations” (that’s a fancy word for underwear/spanx). This was also overwhelming to me, since I had a million choices, and as it turns out the style I ended up purchasing will not work out, because it shows through on one section of the dress. So, back to the drawing board on that one (and $80 down the drain, vom!). If I had a dollar for every time something went wrong in this wedding planning process, I’d have enough money to hire someone to do it for me.
All in all, lots of exciting things-are-getting-real moments are happening right now. Today, our Save the Dates arrived and they look SPECTACULAR! Hold your horses, you’ll get a picture of those soon enough.
You can expect many more posts from me this month, and many more meltdowns as TBD draws ever closer.
