The Bride vs. The Dress Fitting

So yesterday was International Happiness Day, an emotion that completely overcame me a whole day early on Wednesday night when I had my dress fitting. You can pretty much say that I was biting my fingernails and eating light throughout the whole dang day so I wasn't bloated to the max come 7p.m. Yes, I had to have my dress fitting at the END of the day!! GAH. If you can avoid it, I highly suggest going to a dress fitting as early as possible!

Let me preface by saying that back in November when my dress came in, it was so tight I had to inhale as much as I could so the consultant could zip it up....I couldn't breathe and she had to unzip it partially halfway through the appointment so the effing zipper wouldn't break. I about died.


Granted I felt bloated to the max, but I felt like the world had just ended when she said, "oh no worries honey, we can just let it out." My face contorted in a way I never thought was possible. Has anyone else experienced a wedding meltdown? LET OUT my Enzoani gown?! NUH UH lady!

By the time my appointment came around, I wanted to run into that bridal boutique and try on my dress!! I walked in and was greeted by the woman who is in charge of my alterations. She led me to my fitting room that had my dress waiting for me...I swear there was like a white light shining down on it, it was so heavenly. It's moments like these that get me even MORE excited for the big day. I can't wait for Josh to see me in my dress. I hope to knock him off my socks. Unfortunately I can't divulge any info on the dress since he may be reading this, BUT it's absolutely perfect and fireworks go off in my head every single time I see it. 

One last wave of anxiety passed through me and then I stripped down, stepped into the dress...and BOOM she zipped it up with no problem! SAY WHAT?? And I can breathe?! Pardon me while I do my flippin' happy dance and run a victory lap! Not only did it zip up, they'll have to take it IN.

 

When I initially went to my trainer in tears because my dress didn't fit, I told him all about my daily workouts and while I didn't realize it before, I was lifting heavy weights and bulking up. I had to lay off the heavier weights and do higher reps of lower weights. Between switching that up, getting rid of more of those yummy empty calories that come in the form of wine glasses and Starbucks cups, and making sure my water intake is where it needs to be...SUCCESS. I'll be doing these moves for the next six weeks.


Tomorrow my future mother-in-law is throwing me a bridal shower and I am SO excited. Now I get to practice not spilling stuff all over myself while in a white dress. Maybe I should wear a bib? Happy Friday!!! Can I get a Hallelujah?!

  12. So glad the fitting went well! I was so nervous my dress was going to be too tight for my first fitting only it ended up being like 3 sizes too big... I wish I was joking because it was supposed to be ordered "to size", and the lady who did my measurements kept telling me I wouldn't want it to be too tight and it ended up being the biggest nightmare for the alterations! I hope you have an amazing shower!!

  16. Dress fittings are so stressful, which is totally the opposite of what you would think. I was exhausted by the end of the day of my dress fittings. And yay for the dress fitting!
