Last Saturday I went for my first dress fitting. I was really excited to try on my dress again since the last time I tried it on was in April when I picked it up from the bridal store. I bought the dress exactly a year ago during a sample sale and aside from length of sleeves and hem, it fit me perfectly! So I basically had a year to maintain my weight and size. I was also excited to see what my shoes looked like with my dress on. I decided to wear my hair in a high bun, similar to the Hillary Duff hairstyle that @deecol posted. I wanted to see if that hairstyle suited the dress. Well I'm happy to say that the dress still fits me perfectly As soon as I was zipped up, I fell in love with my dress again. My sister/MOH said that she can tell that I still love my dress and that I looked beautiful in it (did I tell you how much I love my sister? LOL). All the consultants flocked to my fitting room and made me feel like a thousand bucks with all of their compliments. I should note that within the last year, my mom, sister and I have bought 7 dresses from this bridal store (dresses for my brother's wedding last June and for my upcoming one) so we knew all the consultants. They were basically my friends so that's why they all came to see me in my dress. My original bridal consultant even came by to give me a hug and show me jewellery that she thought would be perfect for my wedding. I tried them on and they were just the right amount of bling and looked great with my dress. So I bought these swarovski earrings and this bracelet.

According to Filipino (or my mom's) superstition, I was not allowed to wear any jewellery that were tear-drop style as it represented sad tears on the wedding day. So these earrings were mom-approved.
As for my hair, everyone agreed that the high ballerina bun did not suit me or my dress. Since I won't be having a hair trial, it was good to test out before my wedding day. So I've decided that this is how I'm going to style my hair.I won't be wearing a veil, just a jeweled hair piece. What do you guys think?

I have two dress fittings left (Oct 17 and 31) then I can cross that off my list. Woohoo!

I'm hoping this new hairstyle will work. @deecol the seamstress hated the hairstyle so much that she restyled my hair lol She approves of this new one
@perianjay I love the earrings! They're so shiny and they're simple and elegant
