My first dress fitting

Recommended Posts

Finally pics of my first dress fitting a couple of weeks ago, my 2nd fitting in next week. I was so excited to finally put it on. Pictures were taken after he pinned the hem so you can see the scallop on the front part of the dress. So far no major alterations. I think Im going to ask to have the top taken in though a lot of empty space that I dont think I will miracuously be filling in anytime soon.

Please ignore the comical look on my face its hard to smile properly when several family members are lurking at you hehe.

I lurked the streets of Manhattan for several weeks to find the ribbon in the color and width I wanted (to match my shoes of course). The only place that had it (Phew) was M&J Trimming. I may end up using the ribbon that came with the dress for me and my BM bouquet.


And here are my shoes, close enough match dontcha think?:

I got a shiver when I saw your dress - I came down to two and had a hard time deciding - your dress was one of them! You look absolutely stunning! Perhaps we are twins in another life - same hotel and same dress!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
