Wedding Update: MY First Dress Fitting

I had my first wedding dress fitting yesterday!!  My dress had been ordered and I had been impatiently patiently waiting for it to come in… well the night of the cap city half marathon expo I got a call that it was finally in!!  So I called and set up an appointment to go have my fitting…

Ok… that picture is not really how my dress looks… but it’s the closest thing to it that you’re gonna see before June 25th lol ;)

Anyways… I’ve been counting down the days til yesterday’s fitting… I was so excited!!!  It is actually MY dress… MINE!!  Not the sample dress that everyone gets to try on… MINE!!!

I was trying to make sure I had everything that I needed and that I wasn’t forgetting anything important… and then I headed out, but had to turn around because I forgot my camera!! lol…. Yeah… I forgot to get any pictures but did take a couple of my mom and I after the fact lol…


I had to get it hemmed about an inch because I’m wearing flats, and I guess I have “runner boobs” (that’s what the lady told me anyways) when she had to pin the top of my dress by like 5 cm lol… um… thanks?! lol  And then came the hard decision….. French bustle or American bustle?

Well, I’m not really in the know on what’s fashionable these days, I just do what I want and what I like…so I decided to go with American lol…  the French one made me look like I had a poof butt… and if you’ve been following my blog for any length of time, you know that my butt is the one thing about myself that I really have to work at liking.. so the smaller it looks, the better lol…

have no clue what I’m talking about?  lets see if I can find some pics to show you…

I ended up going with a 2 point American bustle which I think shows off the details in my dress better and doesn’t give me even more of a bubble butt than I already have lol ;)  The seamstress told me I had a time limit when she noticed that  I couldn’t stop smiling and looking at myself in the mirror …imagining my big day…

Even though I forgot to have my mom take pictures of me in the dress… We still managed to get one of my favorite pictures EVER

yes, this picture deserves to be this big or bigger!  I love my mommy! :)

It was a great day… and I’m so super excited that I’m marrying the love of my life in 35 DAYS!!!!


  1. Your enthusiasm is infectious!! Now you know you have to show us pix post-wedding since we're all dying to know what's on the other side of the bustle right? I like American too!

    Congratulations and enjoy!

  2. I can feel your excitement over this computer screen. I CANNOT WAIT to see your dress......

  3. Very exciting! Super cute pic of you and your mom!

  4. Ohh I agree- the American one is much cuter. I LOVE the pix of you and you mom - too cute!!!!!!!!!!

  5. these

    Don't get me wrong I love the running and race recaps too but this is what life is all about & I LOVE IT!

  6. How exciting for you! The photo of you and your Mum is just lovely - both of you look like you're having a ball.

  7. Ahh! I don't even know you and I was beaming the whole time I read this... Weddings are so wonderful!!

    I get to plan my "big wedding" when my hubby and I get back to the states for good next summer (we had to rush it and have a courtroom ceremony because of his orders to Korea), and I can't wait!

    You and your mom are both such gorgeous ladies! That is a wonderful picture!!

  8. Oh this takes me back to my wedding dress shopping!!! I love it! Thank you for sharing; I can't wait to see your pictures.

    And thank you for your comment on my blog. All that Rapture stuff was crazy, right? The point of it should have been, whether today or tomorrow, be ready but don't live your life as if it will happen tomorrow. Wow, that sounded weird LOL I think you understand.

  9. Good choice on the American bustle. I bet you are going to be a beautiful bride.

    I'm glad you aren't showing us the dress. I mean I really want to see it ... but I love the anticipation of waiting for the big day!!

  12. LOVE the last photo of you and your sister.


  13. I love the AMerican Bustle! Classic and simple!
