You guys are good guessers!
Tonight was, in fact, my first wedding dress fitting.
I was supposed to have my first fitting in August, but something went a little kooky between the bridal boutique and the manufacturer of my dress, so my first fitting got pushed back to three weeks before my wedding day.
A little nerve wracking, no?
My mom drove in town from St. Pete to be there which meant the world to me.
It was too big.
Way too big.
I wasn’t anticipating this because the boutique ordered my dress in a split size and took my measurements to have the dress made for me and I have not lost any weight. I was a little overwhelmed.
When my mom called out, “How is it?” from outside my fitting room and I answered her, she immediately went into mom mode and reminded me that we were here in plenty of time to have the dress altered and changed to make it perfect for the big day.
What is it about mothers that make them know exactly what to say to help calm, relax and soothe their children?
Shoes + Dress
I was also a little nervous to try on my wedding day shoes with my dress because it took me forever to find the shoes I bought and I wanted them to be perfect.
Unfortunately the dress is just a tad too short on me with my heels on (I’m lifting my dress in the above pictures… It’s not that short). We’re looking into ordering a bit more lace from the dress company to add an inch and a half to the bottom of the dress. Cross your fingers that it works!
I also brought my wedding day clutch with me to the fitting to be sure I liked the look of it with my dress.
I had such a hard time choosing one that I liked best, so I sent them a couple of links to the ones I liked most and told them to surprise me.
They sent me this beautiful clutch:
Plus, the big flower is removable should I decide against it or wish to take it off after the wedding as well.
I love Etsy sellers who create their own handmade goods. They’re the best!

Once my dress fitting was complete and I said goodbye to my mama (she has an early morning appointment and couldn’t stay the night), it was time for dinner!
Since it was a little more than an hour later than when I normally eat dinner, I arrived at our apartment starving.
I immediately ate a fairly sizable protein bar to take the edge off.
I then assembled a plate of fast foods.
I made a double cheese bagelwich by microwaving two slices of Muenster cheese on an everything bagel thin. On the side I enjoyed a sliced Honeycrisp apple (half went into my mouth and didn’t make the picture).
I’m still a little hungry, so I’m off to grab a cup of Greek yogurt before callin’ it a night.
Apparently wedding dress fittings are quite draining!
