Since I’m less than a week away from walking down the aisle, I thought it was high time to share my wedding dress story with all of you.
I fully expected to walk into a salon and have the “moment” where I’d try on a dress, look in the mirror, cry, shout “This is the one!” and walk out beaming.
It didn’t really work out that way. Like, at all.
When I did finally pick out my wedding dress it was from a salon that was closing so I got it at a steal (you know how I love a good steal) and it was roughly 10 sizes too big. No big deal, right?
Apparently there are only so many things a seamstress can do to make a dress fit perfectly. A lesson for all you unwed or soon-to-be wed women out there: order a size up, not ten sizes up. Trust me. It will only end in a headache.
Finally, thanks to an amazing seamstress and an overnight, 8-hour roundtrip drive to CT for a final fitting, the dress is ready to go a mere two weeks before the wedding. I can finally breathe.
I may not have had that instant “THIS IS IT” moment with the dress, but I did have it with the guy. I guess when it comes down to it, I’d take that over the perfect dress any day.
TELL ME: What was your wedding dress shopping experience like? I’d love to know!
