Update:

83 more days!!!! I'm so excited, it's getting so close. So this weekend I had my final dress fitting and Der had his suit fitting. Yup, it was a wedding planning weekend for the both of us.

For my dress fitting, I was so happy with how it all looks. The length is perfect, though my seamstress still wants to shorten the lining a bit more. The train is gorgeous and will look so beautiful while I walk down the aisle. We agreed on having the bustle on top instead of under as it showcases the ruffles more. And, as suggested by many, I did try on veils. As soon as she put the first one on me, I instantly fell in love! The veil is champagne so it matches my dress perfectly! And it's lined with a few jewels for a little added bling. I didn't want to take it off lol. I left my veil and dress at the store and won't pick it up until January 9. They'll steam it for me and get it all ready!

As for Derrick, Indochino did a great job with his suit. Although we bought a full suit, he's only wearing the dress shirt, pants and vest. I love the little touches of customization you can do with a custom suit, like his sleeve is monogrammed. Most of all, I love the fit on him!

So to get a visual of what we look like together, I put this photo together. It got me even more excited!!!Attached File  image.jpeg   115KB   7 downloads

Beautiful!!! So glad you tried on a veil - it's crazy how you can have your mind set on one thing and then bam! It's great you were open minded about it because you look incredible!

So nice to get a visual of how you'll look together! You both look great!

Thank you so much @deecol @perianjay @Danielle1 and @calgarybride2015

@deecol I'm so glad I tried on veils. It's funny because when I initially bought the dress, I tried on a veil and it didn't look good at all. My seamstress suggested trying them on again after the dress alterations were complete since I thought a veil plus a dress with ruffles seemed like so much fabric on me. But I put it on and it completed the look. I'm so excited!

@perianjay you're so sweet! I was tearing up at Indochino because I was imagining myself walking towards Der in his suit. I am so happy with how it looks, it's the perfect grey too

@Danielle1 you're just a month after me so yours is getting closer too! I got my PO and Yanet did a great job getting the majority of it correct. We went back and forth a few times and after a week, my PO is perfect. So you have nothing to worry about :)

Love, love, love your dress  :wub:  I think you've convinced me to try on a veil when I go for my fitting in a few months. Yours looks beautiful with your dress.

You both look stunning. I go for my fitting next week. Paul is wearing an ivory traditional Mexican wedding shirt and tan linen pants. We will be more laid back than yours. Perhaps we should hook up for a drink at the resort, since we will both be there!

@krystalball thank you so much! I highly recommend trying on veils. I honestly didn't think a veil would look good since I tried one initially and hated it. Make sure you bring all your jewellery too so you know exactly what it will look like together. The moment she put that veil on me, I felt even more bridal. I didn't even think I was missing anything, yet I completed the whole look

@ maddjax thank you so much. When are you going to be there again? We should definitely meet up for drinks!

@Wafflesmom I'm so glad to hear that your PO was accurate!  How far in advance did you receive it? (I was thinking it wasn't until 60 days out) That is so exciting!
