    Am I the only crazy person here whose FI has already seen the dress?

      I have my first fitting tonight, so I'll have to have my mom take some pics for me!

        We thought about just letting him see it, but our moms had more to say about it than we did, so he and I decided he wouldn't see it in advance for them. They're not pushy with wedding stuff for the most part, but its something they were pretty vocal about LOL

          I say keep the strap too. It really helps to tie in the bottom of the dress. :)

            Yeah, I never heard of that either. You never know until you put the dress on. If you feel absolutely beautiful and can see yourself walking in the dress, then it's the one!
             

            MissBliss and ckrn, I love your dresses! You both look so beautiful!

            Wow!  That's wild.  I never heard that - I fell into that 70% category.  I totally ended up with a different dress than I envisoned!

              JessiTaylor,

              My friend and I got married in Jamaica a few days apart. My dress was sheath and hers was puffy. As it turns out my dress was heavier and warmer than her big puffy dress. I guess size does not always mean warmth/heaviness... If you know what I mean...

              So if you want to wear puffy dress you should go ahead and wear it. As Janet said, if you wear bikini you still will be hot :D

              Good Luck!

              I love your pictures! I was just thinking about what you said about not discounting the bigger dresses -so you weren't too hot?! I love some of the bigger dresses but im worried about overheating and generally being a sweaty mess =S

               

              Fiance has suggested i wear a bigger dress for the church ceremony and legal ceremony (and photos) and then something simple for the reception so im thinking about that - seems a bit extravangant though!

                My husband and I went shopping for my dress together.

                He is my best friend and I cared only for his opinion on it :D

                  Well, this was my first try on.  Sorry for the bad pic but it's all I have so far.  Can't wait to post the professional ones...*sigh*!  Only 75 more days to go :)

                    Thanks :-) It was kinda awkward, so I couldn't get any pics, but we chopped out the hoopskirt, a bunch of crinolines, turned into a semi-sweetheart neckline and changed the train to a sweep train. I am so excited to see how it looks at the second fitting!!
