Back of my dress :) hope it fits in Dec!

Recommended Posts

So, I tried it on yesterday for the first time in a long time. I tried it on with my undergarments, accessories, the whole shebang!

I love it, it fits, it's comfortable, I love it. This is a Sottero and Midgley which I can't find on their website anymore (thinking its' discontinued) and it has a detachable train. The photo doesn't show the details with the applique lace and beading on the train and the back, but that train can be snapped off after the ceremony which is nice.

 

The problem is....look at the back! it's almost as tight as it will go! I bought this dress Nov 09 and I've lost about 26 lbs since - and plan on losing a little more. Since it was a tie up back I wasn't going to plan for those types of alterations, but I guess I might have to.

Or, if it doesn't fit, sell it? and buy a new one? I can sell it for cheap since it was a sample sale.

Here's the pic (please ignore my grandma's house in the background and Big Brother playing on the TV) hahaha!

I think the dress looks fantastic. I know what you mean though, that was a struggle I was having when I ordered my dress too as I am losing weight. How much will it cost to get made smaller?

Congrats on the weight loss! Personally, I prefer when the corset is tighter (like yours is) b/c I think it gives the impression that you are skinnier. When I see them dragged all the way across the back, it just seems like the dress is too small which means the bride is too large! So I prefer the look that you have going on. But i know that other brides really like the corset to show across the back. So I guess what it comes down to is, what is your personal preference on how it looks??

That dress looks beautiful on you! And congrats onthe weight loss!

 

This isn't meant to be discouraging, but don't be surprised if it becomes tougher to lose weight as your wedding approaches. All sensible eating went out the door for me because I was so focused on getting everything ready. Also, in a tropical climate, you won't want your dress to be super tight. I had my MOH loosen mine twice throughout the night because it felt like the dress was shrinking on me. Just a few things to think about.

Kristy, I totally know what you mean! I figure with all the bridal showers and bachelorette parties (not just my own...) it will be hard to lose much more weight. I def agree. And that is a good point, with the humidity, it will be nice to have it a little loose. When I tried it on yesterday, I was already getting a pretty hot underneath and this is the CA coast and it's only 70.

I figure worse comes to worse, I have to pay someone to hem the dress so if I have to have them take it in, it would be less of a hastle to do that than trying to sell and buy something new.

    • I recently was married at Las Caletas and had Tom Moks for our wedding photographer. I stumbled upon his work on Instagram and was captivated by the colors, authenticity, and ease of his photos. Each couple looked stunning and the moments they shared looked so passionate and pure. After reaching out to Tom, via email from his website, he responded a couple days later and we discussed his availability for our wedding date. I had to have him! Before I pulled the trigger and finalized down payments though, I decided to research some more and check out his reviews just to be safe. I came to this review thread and was so disappointed when I read about what brides were saying about their experiences.  I had it set it my mind that Tom would be our photographer and felt confused and scared to move forward with him. I had said from the beginning of the wedding planning (and heard from many previous brides) that photography is perhaps the most important money you will spend during your wedding planning and to not be frugal. Cautiously and anxiously, I decided to give a shot, fingers-crossed, and go with Tom. What I can tell anyone that stumbles across this page, like I did a few months ago, was that Tom was without a doubt the most incredible, talented, kind-hearted, genuine, hardworking, genius creator and capturer I’ve ever met or witnessed! From start to finish, Tom was honest, helpful, and easy going!  We decided to go with the package that gave us the opportunity to do a “Couples Shoot” before the actual wedding day (we decided to do this instead of traditional engagement pictures back home in Chicago as we loved the historic beauty and colors of downtown Puerto Vallarta.) Before the shoot, Tom and I had several phone conversations, in which we discussed all the logistics and details to the shoot. He answered my questions, gave me honest and real responses, and I told him we’d follow his lead. We chose to trust him and not overthink or plan out what we wanted. We trusted him to guide us and deliver amazing photo. And he did JUST THAT. I typically HATE taking pictures and feel so uncomfortable the second the lens is pointed in my direction. But Tom made this experience not only doable, but enjoyable! He made me feel beautiful, he made me feel comfortable, he made me feel amazing!   If you’re looking for someone who won’t be honest and candid with you, if you’re not able to take constructive feedback, if you’re not willing to laugh at yourself and your awkwardness, if you’re not willing to trust his process and let go of the control, Tom Moks may not be the photographer for you.  If you’re looking for photos back the next day or even next couple weeks, Tom may not be the photographer for you. Just know, he is an artist who is capturing moments that will last a lifetime. There should be no rush for that. I was MORE than happy waiting a couple of months for my photographs because they were the most stunning and incredible photos I’ve ever seen of myself and my husband. It was worth the wait.  I cannot thank Tom Moks enough for the work he did for my husband and I. He was present every step of the way and went above and beyond to capture each moment. I genuinely will miss him and hope you all get to experience the same feeling we did with Tom as your photographer!

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
