Hi Ladies!!!

I have my first dress fitting today, and I am SOOOOO excited!!

Here's the thing: the salon has told be to bring my undergarments, shoes and veil. However, it is POURING RAIN today. I get the shoes and undergarments, but do I really have to bring my veil?

The shop is a good 10 minute walk from my office, and I dont want it getting wet. I could take a cab, but it will take me that long just to find one.

Thoughts? Suggestions?

yay take pics! can you put your veil into something plastic to protect it? otherwise if not, i think you should tell them you didnt want to get the veil wet and juts not bring it.

      I say dont risk it getting wet, they should have something that is pretty close to yours as far as length goes, if its a must have....Take pics~we all wanna see

        i wouldn't bring the veil either. they are so delicate to start with, i wouldn't be hauling it around any more than i had to!

        Well, crap! I just realized that I don't have my camera with me! I've been meaning to post photos of my invites that I finally put in the mail.

        I guess the cell phone will have to do.

        I'll see if I can't find a plastic bag somewhere.

          I didn't have my veil for any of my fittings. I think as long as you have your undies and shoes, your'e all set.

            I took everything, the undergarments, slip, both pairs of shoes, veil, and jewelry! I wanted to see the whole package!

            At my first fitting I didn't have the veil and just used one there at the boutique that was similar to mine.

            If you can't find a bag, use a trash bag, lay it flat and roll it so it doesn't get all smashed and wrinkled.

              Oh my goodness, how exciting!

              This post reminded me to call my steamstress to get started on my dress.

                I didn't take my veil with me. I already knew it looked good with the dress. I think that's the only reason to bring it- so you can see the total package. :)

                I didn't have shoes or undergarments so I just wore some undies and called it good. LOL
