Final Fitting!

Today is the day I get to see what my dress looks like on with all of the alterations completed and the bustle! I will bring a camera.

On Friday I went with my new doc to my venue so she could see the layout and to ask questions. Well, I learned that my idea for the chocolate daisy escort cards will not work! The venue sets up the table with the escort cards next to the guest book, so when people arrive they can sign the book, drop off their gift or card, and pick up their escort card. This stops any "bottle necking" when entering the reception. Well, that would mean that my guests would be holding a chocolate daisy sucker through an outdoor ceremony and cocktial hour in August -- not going to work! So, instead the venue will place one sucker on each plate as the favor and my guests will just pick up a regular escort card. Problem solved. So, now what do I do with the 21 silver buckets I bought?

Good luck with the fitting. Hopefully it fits perfect.

When did you start your fitting process?

blablover5 -- yes, it was perfect! I'll be posting about it later in the week.
dana -- I got my dress in June, tried it on and quickly realized that it was too big, the seamstress at the dress shop wanted $200 to alter it -- on June 21 I took it to my friend (who is a seamstress) and had her "pin me", today she brought down the dress and I tried it on, thankfully it fit, so I don't have to do it all again!
