Good Morning Ladies,

I dropped my dress off to be altered this past Saturday. Thankfully she will only need to hem it and add a bustle. She said it should be about $160. I'm super happy with the price!! I feel like it is very reasonable. When I had previously tried it on, I of course couldn't lace it up myself so the fabric was so loose and the cups were huge and just poked out. I was concerned that she would have to sew cups in and I didn't know what she could do about the fabric being so lose. I got my dress on and she laced it up and it fit PERFECTLY! All of the issues that I was worried about were gone. I was thrilled! I won't even need to wear a bra, which is fantastic.


On to the photos below, the left photos were from the day I bought my dress, which was Sept 2017. The photos on the right are from Saturday. I have lost 15lbs and over 7 inches since I found my dress. I feel so much better in it now than I did at the beginning. 15lbs honestly doesn't seem like a lot to me, but it was enough to eliminate my stomach poking out in the dress! We are 60 days out from the wedding, things are getting real!!! I'm excited to have another thing checked off of my list and just wanted to share Smiley heart

    Congrats! This is proof that’s it’s not all about the pounds when it comes to the results, but the inches lost!

    Thank you!! I don’t have much left to do! Remove wrinkles from the tablecloths, paint mason jars, hair/make up trial, pay off the remaining vendors. Really not much left thankfully!
