My First Dress Fitting

Remember how I found my dress in ahhhh like July last year?!!! Well last Thursday I went back to Couture by Francesca for my very first fitting!
 
To say I was excited is an understatement, I was giddy, a little nervous and felt like a little kid at Christmas time all over again.
 
See the excitement?
 
We actually didn't do that much for my dress, except talk about what I wanted again, have a quick sketch drawn up and take my measurements. Of course this was followed by the whole "what do you intend to do leading up to the wedding...", which was started by some comment I made about my sausage arms. Pretty standard in a wedding dress salon I am guessing.
 
 
Seen as it had been 6 months since I picked the dress, I asked if I could try on the sample gown again. I was so so nervous as she put me in it, I was scared I was going to become one of those girls on "Say Yes to the Dress", who argues it is not the same dress, or who knows it is the same one but hates it now and has to fork out thousands more dollars for a new one.
 
Luckily, I am not one of those girls. As soon as I was clipped into my dress, I fell in love all over again! I couldn't stop smiling, my bridesmaid and mum were taking pictures and I wanted to get married there and then!
 
I am so excited about my dress, I want to show you, and everyone else the photos... but for once I am going to keep my big mouth SHUT! SORRY!
 
At my next appointment, I will take photos of the construction and that should be okay to share.
 
I will show you one photo now though... my shoes underneath my dress.
 
 
The right show still has the cardboard under the flowers, but you get the idea.
 
Under 10 months to go now. YEYYYY!!!
 
P.S. Sorry for the poor photos, my iphone flash has broken.

    1. Thanks for the tip - I'll make sure my bridesmaid's take lots, especially seen as I probably won't have another dress made for me for a long long time, if ever!
