My dress is in! Going to try it on...

Natalie, on November 7, 2019 at 4:41 PM Posted in Wedding Attire 0 26

My dress came in and I am SO excited to go try it on this Saturday and to try on veils. I'm also oddly nervous! I ordered the dress in a different color than the one I tried on (ordered Ivory, tried on a Champagne). I'm also really excited to try it on bc it's my size and the sample was a bit small.

How did your first try on go after picking up your dress? Pics! Smiley xd Smiley heart

    I realized I hated my dress xD so that didn’t go very well. My mom and I are going back to try on new dresses this weekend. I’m sure your experience will be much better than mine.

    Mine went really well! I needed alterations so it still didn't quite fit the way it should, but I felt a lot more confident in my decision trying the dress on in my size.

    That's what I'm hoping for too! I was between sizes, I ordered the larger size and will most likely need alterations. I prefer that over trying to lose weight to make it fit, which scares me haha

    It was way too big, it stuck out weirdly on my hips so it made me look hippier than I already am. I had a baby 2 years ago and my hips shifted and I’m still kind of sensitive about it haha. And the skirt is big and tulle with sparkly sequins in it. It’s perfect for the wedding I was going to have (although I still don’t like it) but it’s no longer appropriate for the mountain wedding we’re having. I look at pictures of me in it and I feel like I look fat (despite knowing it’s mathematically impossible to be wearing a size 2 dress AND be fat)

    It was awesome for me. I couldn't wait to get it. But I hadto wait a week and half to go pick it up because we were leaving for a family vacation the day after they called that it was in. I never wanted to have a vacation to be over with but I did this time lol. My dress fits me almost perfectly; I need to have the straps brought up just a bit and a bustle. But very minimal alterations which was one of the reasons I liked it so much!

    It went well for me! I was also in between sizes and went up 1. I still loved it just as much though! I had tried on white and ordered ivory. I think I feel in love with it more when I went and picked it up because I was having mild dress regret the 4 months waiting. Hope it goes well for you!

    It went amazing. It made me so happy and excited for our wedding. Especially since my fiancé was in the shop in another area while I tried it on. I exactly measured a bridal size 10 except in the boobs 😂 because not gifted there 😂😂😂. The only thing I worry about is my arms and tummy. I’ve always been a smaller, petite girl but recently some medications have caused me to gain some weight so I’m still adjusting to that. I’m at a good weight but my arms have a little flab so going to work on those

    It went great! I need the straps taken up and it is a bit too loose overall but I love the color! I am also thinking about adding some kind of sheer modesty panel. Also my spanx showed with the dress so I think I’ll do boob tape. Also, it clearly needs to be shortened several inches lol

    I got my new dress, but had to try it on in grey. I'm ordering it in Ivory. It's expected to come in in early December, and I'm crossing my fingers that I still like it in Ivory. The smallest ivory version they had was a size 10 (I'm a size 2) so I couldn't try it on.
