Two weeks until the big day! I am kinda freaking out. But that’s okay, because I have not felt the nerves until now. And a bride is supposed to feel some nerves, right?
Anyway, I have a quick 3 minute vlog about why the nerves are a bit high. Check it:
I am stressed about the dress. Any other brides out there, past or present, feel my pain? I hate feeling this way because I know it sounds so vain, but a bride does want to look beautiful on her big day. Especially when SO MANY EYES are on the bride and groom at all times.
I can officially say that my advice for future brides is to make sure you order a size up EVEN if the seller tells you that you are the exact size of the dress. I should have followed my intuition on this one, but I disregarded it and followed the seller’s advice instead. You want to be able to alter some things if needed. My dress fits everywhere else wonderfully, but is a tad too tight around my rib cage. The back is beautiful and needs to be able to button up without any snags or drags or whatever the word is that I am looking for. I am hopeful that the seamstress can let it out just a tad, but honestly she should have done this weeks ago at my last fitting. Which leads me to another word of advice for brides: get a seamstress you trust and can communicate with easily. If she has a million dresses in her office, go with someone else. Nothing against her, but she probably has her hands way too full.
Enough about the dress.. that really isn’t the most important part of a wedding anyway. I get to marry a wonderful man whom I love so much. And that is a beautiful thing. I cannot wait to be his wife!
Before I go, here are a few pictures from my bachelorette party this past weekend:
