Wedding Wednesday: First Fitting!

Wedding Wednesday

Happy Wedding Wednesday!

Fun update to share today!!!

Friday was my first dress fitting!

Two of my girlfriends joined me, which was awesome. That's not something any bride should do alone.

I haven't tried on the dress since it arrived in June, so I had a few worries running through my head leading up to it. Luckily the dress still fit and still looked gorgeous and still made me smile. I may have danced a little - just to test the dress, of course!

It also helped that Jen and Daniela told me that I looked amazing. Compliments never hurt.
Neither do cocktails. We grabbed a couple of drinks at the swanky Hotel Palomar soon after. Such a lovely start to the weekend!

I have my second fitting scheduled and I can't wait for it! At that point the dress will be the correct length and will (hopefully) fit me like a glove!

And oh yeah, the wedding is in under 75 days.
73 now I think?
I still have 15 more envelopes to address.
Oh and then the inner envelopes.
Oh and a bunch of other stuff to do, too.

However, it's all fun stuff!

Whenever I feel stressed I think about walking down the aisle, seeing Andrew, and then enjoying our time with family and friends. Then the stress subsides.

What do you do to suppress the stress?

I make LISTS.... like a TON of lists, to get what stresses me out on paper, to figure out the problem. I mean I don't have the ring on the finger yet, but the boyfriend did purchase the ring and wedding band this past Sunday SO it's coming LOL.

YAH for wedding dress fittings! I tried my dress on when it came in in October and I wish I hadn't. It didn't fit :( but it has motivated me to get it together!

I can't wait to have a fitting and start making it look like I want it to on the day! Drinks never hurt either! Those are oh so important for all things weddings.
