congrats on finding it!!!

I went in for a fitting yesterday- after crying about my job all day and I almost passed out in my dress. the room was hot, the boning was super tight on my ribcage, and I had cried the entire car ride there to my MOH about all my stress. I almost fell off my pedestal lol, they had to take me out of the room for air, but I was fine after that. Definitely a "crunchtime we're almost there moment" 

 

Anyway, I had my straps altered because they were too long, and I had my bustle done yesterday. I didn't need a hem!!!! So my final fitting is Monday, June 24th and I pick up my dress Monday, July 1st. I'll post pics of the final complete. So excited. I looooooove my dress. I don't know why the ribcage is so tight though. It's not even tight on my tummy, just at the ribs. It restricts my breathing a little, not exactly the most comfortable thing I have ever worn in my life lol.

First, for a moment I panicked because I saw you changed your profile picture, and I thought your wedding had happened already! Glad it's so close but I didn't miss it.... but gorgeous picture anyways!!!!!

 

Secondly, so sorry your job is stressing you out that much that you can't even enjoy your fitting and really take in these moments! Can they do anything about the boning to loosen it a bit for you??

 

Glad you love your dress! That is super important and it is just stunning! Can't wait to see final pictures of it!

HAHA no those are our E-session photos. We paid a Living Social Photographer- Angelica Criscuolo- $99 for a 1 hr shoot with 5 pictures and the option to purchase more. Because we never got around to our E-session, I asked her if she would follow us to City Hall as we did our legal civil ceremony in our home state. She agreed and voila. My friend snapped that pic with his phone though, I'll receive hers in about a week. She was awesome. 

 

They said they could loosen the boning but it might change the structure of the dress so they are reluctant to do it. The seamstress said "you look beautiful how do you feel" I said "like I can't breathe" and she said "you look beautiful" lol she completely ignored me. I even asked if I should lose a few pounds and she said no because it wouldn't change my ribs lol. She's a trip.

I've meant to post a pic for a while. This is before any alterations (obviously the length will be cut since I'm so short haha). I still plan on losing some weight and getting rid of the dreaded armpit fat. Lol 400 400
