Custom made wedding dress in progress!

Recommended Posts

ladies!

 

I just wanted to give a quick update (sorry no pics this time! lol). As some of you know, I have been following the CYWT diet and have lost 13 lbs on it. I have lost a totaly of 17 lbs because I was watching before I started the diet. ANYHOW, I thought that I would try on the dress just for fun. OMG!!!!! My mom was down to about the 4th lace-up thing and couldn't make it any tighter. There are some snaps to hold a piece of material under the lacing and they are almost 2 inches too big. The dress wouldn't even stay up!!! I AM SO FREAKIN' SUPER EXCITED!!!! My mom was actually holding 2 fists full of material to take in it to what I would need for now, it was crazy!

 

I'm sorta scared because I'll have to break the news to my aunt soon! She's living out of the country right now and won't be back until Christmas. I don't think that'll be enough time (seeing as we're leaving on the 2nd of jan) to take it all in. I don't know if I'll have to bring it to another seamstress. If I do, I think my aunt would be insulted....ahhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!! lol Because seriously, I would need alterations to start at the beg. of december, to be safe, but I don't think my aunt will be back until mid-december....another stress...lol

Lisa that's so exciting that the dress is now too big for you! Would your aunt really be insulted? I mean most brides try to lose some weight before the wedding so it's not surprising that you did. I would just take it to another seamstress but that's just me. It's not like your aunt didn't do an amazing job, because she did and you're not totally changing the dress, you just need it taken in. Maybe give her a call soon and see what she says?

Lisa, I just found this and have looked all through this at the progress that was done on your dress and it is absolutely beautiful! Your aunt is very talented and that is very special to have something made just for you from someone close to you in your life. I'm so excited for you that the dress is too big now! I hope there won't be any hold-ups with getting the alterations done!!

HOLY-AWESOME-WEIGHT-LOSS, LISA!!!

 

CONGRATULATIONS, Miss Lady! That is a great problem to have....you've lost close to 20 lbs. and I am sure your aunt will understand, since I'd imagine you had mentioned you were dieting, as you two were working so closely on the dress over the past few months. I think as long as the credit that she made the dress is given it's fair due, then I really don't think she'll be offended.

 

And who knows? Perhaps she will even feel a little relieved that her work on the dress is done, and now she can just hand it down to another seamstress to take care of the little "nips and tucks" that don't require her expert attention? wink.gif

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
