      Just got the call my dress is in!!!!  I go try it on tomorrow.  I'm scared it's going to be HUGE.  They had to order me a size 16 so it would fit my apparently larger-than-normal boobs.

        YAY This is so exciting!  I have to wait until December/January-ish for my dress to come in!!  Im sure your dress will be amazing and size is no big deal they will alter it to fit you perfectly!

              I was so worried driving to the shop to try on my dress that I was going to hate it and it would look terrible on me and then I would have to start shopping all over again.  I have no dress regret!  I still love it and it feels like it was made for me.  I am a bit sad that the size 16 fit me and it didn't seem huge.  :(  I know this has a lot to do with the corset top.

               

              I'll have to have it altered a bit but mostly in length.  I won't do the alterations until November.  I'm going to ask for the leftover fabric back and I'm going to try and make a diy hair flower that I saw on this site.

                That's a good idea cndbride. When I my dress I was in love, when I got it I kinda felt like maybe there's something else better. I wanted to make crazy changes but now I'm in love again! But I'm still getting them to do a corset in mine and a sweetheart neckline. I think I just got a bit of cold feet. Lol

                  Hi,

                   

                  Can you let me know what past brides or future brides plan on wearing shoes wise? I have no idea if heels will be ok walking down the wooden walkway to the gazebo.

                   

                  Thanks

                  A

                    CdnbrideJoanne - I know the feeling!  I had the same concerns going in to do my final fitting when my dress arrived.  I arrived, totally expecting it to be a bummer...and I ended up falling in love with my dress again. Don't worry about the dress number they told me...bridal gowns fit small...as well, regardless of the size, you want it to fit all your assets perfectly..!!  No matter what anyone says, everyone goes to a wedding ceremony to see the bride and her dress..!!!  LOL. 

                     

                    To all the other future brides..I can tell you guys without a doubt that you will have a blast! The one thing I found out when I arrived is alot of the smaller details were not necessary...however, I was happy that I added personal touches like my wedding program fans, favors, treat bags (I ordered Jamaican treats from my now sister-in-law that lives on the island and brought the bags and bows and tags with me...spent only a couple hours before prepping them).  The planners took everything and had it all set up perfectly for me.

                     

                    Another tip I can offer is to set up Dropbox in order to get all the pics everyone took...it's the easiest photo sharing site...it's better than a whole bunch of your wedding pix showing up on facebook which we were totally against.

                     

                    Happy planning for the Future Brides.
