When it was time to step into the fitting room, I held my breath while the seamstress opened up the garment bag...and the dress was finally revealed! Not going to lie though, for a hot second I actually wasn't sure if it was my dress. I couldn't remember the bodice or the skirt looking the way it did but I kept my crazy thoughts to myself and decided to wait until I put the gown on to make any judgements. Once the dress was on though, I knew absolutely that this was still my dress. This time around I am even more in love with it because;
- This was the first time I put on the actual dress that I will be getting married in, not the raggedly sample dress I originally tried on
- I had brought along my wedding shoes, veil and hair fascinator which gave me more of a holistic view of how I will look on my wedding day
- Mom's wholehearted, enthusiastic approval of the dress once more
- My calorie counting has been working--my dress needs to be taken in several inches in the bodice (whoohoo!!)

How was your first dress fitting? Exciting? Terrifying?
