    So, I went for measurements in November for my wedding dress. The boutique owner then ordered from the designer, which she said would take until April. Well, 2nd weeke in May I was told the dress was in.

    I went on Saturday and I was swimming in the damn thing!

    I had wonderful visions of it fitting like a glove and everything being in the right spot.

    It's loose on my waist which gives me NO shape and I can see right down my top.

    She is going to alter it for $225! Then I go in on June 14th again. I know it will still be too big.
    I'm sad.

      That's actually a good thing that it's too big. Mean's your going to look hot in it once it's all altered to fit you. If it makes you feel better when my dress came in it felt like it was two sizes too big, and I was having major second thoughts about it and if I got the right dress, well after the first fitting it was MUCH better. I'm sure you'll see a BIG improvement on June 14th. Are you trying to loose weight or did they just measure you wrong?

        I think it'll turn out just fine. Just remember that it's a lot easier to take a dress in then it is to let it out!

          THAT IS FINE. It is much easier to take a dress in than to let it out. You will look HOT when it is all said and done.

              Thanks Ladies. I too was having doubts about the dress I picked. I guess i am just afraid it won't be done correctly. I don't know. maybe it's just the current freak out for the week.

                Usually the dress is too big after the first fitting. I wouldnt worry about it. Its gonna fit fine after this fitting.

                  It sounds like wedding panic is setting in. Just remember to breath, all will turn out well, your dress will be beautiful on you!

                    Don't worry everything will turn out allright. Unfortunately it never fits perfectly after the first alteration. But don't worry it will be okay. Like the other girls said it is easier to take a dress in than to let it out. If anything it just means your getting skinnier which is always a plus.
