@ashhtayy Congrats on making it official! I'm glad it went so well. Sounds emotional for your family. So awesome! Good luck with the fitting!

So today was my first dress fitting and final payment date for our guests.
The dress fitting went alright, but not great. The shop is owed by this lovely Korean family and the mother is the seamstress. She doesn't speak or seem to understand any English. When I purchased the dress I told them what alterations I wanted and the son (who the store is named after) translated for the mother and we were super happy with what she planned on doing. Today the son was away and the consultant and the seamstress could not communicate with one and other. Basically I had to try and use hand motions to explain how I wanted things; not the easiest thing to do. I'm quite shocked they didn't cancel the appointment.
Here are some photos but neither are very good. Obviously I'm all pinned up and couldn't articulate "less pointy boobs" very well. They are going to call in a couple days to book another fitting with someone present to translate. I also still don't have a belt. My dress needs a belt and I haven't been able to find one. This store had one I fell in love with but it was totally overpriced and of course, is now sold out.

So as of a few hours ago, 5 couples in our group hadn't made their final payment and 1 couple cancelled. We are confident that 4 of the 5 couples will complete payments but the cancellation came as a surprise. Our guest count is now down to 47. Because payments haven't been completed we haven't been told what our credit will be. When we booked it was 1 for every 21 but because we have so many 4 and 5 day guests it looks like we are JUST shy of two credits. One is better than nothing so we really can't complain.

@ashhtayy oh geez that must have been so frustrating with the communication issues. Sounds like you kept your cool the dress is beautiful on you! love the buttons down the back! I know in the end it will all come together exactly how you want it
ps i know how expensive the belts can be! when i was trying on wedding dresses this one dress looked beautiful, but it needed a belt and the belt the consultant put on me looked amazing.... and it should have for $400 lol.
