As for those fitting posts -- how dare those dress shop employees make comments about your size!! Don't they want to sell their dresses? Sometimes people say things without realizing how it sounds. Don't let the comments get to you, and rest assured, every bride is gorgeous on their day, and we don't all look like the models on the designers' web sites.

I expected walking out of my first fitting to feel beautiful instead I walked out with a complex..... not ideal for your first fitting, but I was happy that my FI was there, because he put a smile on my face =)

I went shopping w/my best friend for her wedding and went to a Salon with her one day, she had found 3 dresses she liked and the sales girl was so nice, so we made another appointment to go back and have her mother there with her. When we returned the owner of the Salon was there and saw her in the dress that she was going to chose with a smile from ear to ear... (The dress was the least expensive of the three), She told her the dress made her look really Big... um my friend looked completely beautiful and felt beautiful in the dress and she is a size 6 who had a baby 8 months before and had worked very hard to get the baby weight off.!!!! She was so offended and decided to "think about the dress" one more day to be sure! She left the salon and cried! We said no way are you buying that dress from her salon and found one for her at other Bridal store. It truly is a shame that someone can completely ruin your bridal experience with one comment!
My groom is going to see me in my dress a few month before the wedding, we are going to do some of our bridals together before the wedding to not have to take all those picture on the day of to fully enjoy our day and our cocktail hour!! Cocktail hour is one of my favorite part of the wedding!! I wanted to enjoy it... We are getting married in Key West, but live on the Gulf Coast of Florida so I couldn't image not having pictures taken here on our beautiful white sugar beaches in our wedding attire.
The day always seems to fly by so quickly and we will still take some the day of as well. It truly is "to each his own", It is so hard to keep any type of secret from him and we plan on making the day we take picture prior to very special for us. A photographer friend of mine is doing our pre photos as our wedding gift and then I will have them to display at our reception!! I think he will still be very surprised the day of because I am planning on wearing a 2nd dress that he will not see for the reception.
I do love the element of surprise on the day, but for us I know seeing each other before will help the nerves on the day of. I dont want to spend the whole morning rushing and being nervous to do anything except be on time to our wedding.
