The Dress

On Tuesday I went in for my last formal fitting and my mom and I were blown away. All the worry about the border at the bottom disappeared as it looked absolutely perfect. It’s perfect. She had to take so much off of the length since I’m 5’3″ and the dress was made for someone 5’8″. She took off about 6 inches of material so I wouldn’t trip – lol! But everything lays nicely, the length is just where it needs to be, and all the other alterations came through. All that’s left is the addition of the bustle buttons for my train. She is storing it for me until the week before the wedding so they’ll have it professionally steamed and ready to go. I’ll try it on one last time to triple check that everything is still perfect, and I’ll be good to go!

As my Matron of Honor said, “It’s getting real now!”

Wedding Update: Eleven Weeks to Go!

We are eleven weeks away from the big day!

Peter and I are planning the finer details for the ceremony and the reception. We finished choosing the table layout, and have an idea of the seating arrangements. Next up are final music choices, order of speeches, and confirming the details of the ceremony. It’s all coming together and we cannot wait to see the final result! Once we finalize the order of events, we’ll post them here so stay tuned!

One of the big things off the checklist are the wedding rings! They’re done, and we love how they look. The jeweler did a fantastic job and made us both happy. Sorry for the teaser, but you’ll have to wait until the big day before I post those pics!
