A Brides Journal: The fitting

This day’s been a long time coming – the wedding is the 14th October and everything is just starting to fall into place.

Its 8am – I’m awake and bubbling with excitement – today is the day of my dress fitting!! For you girls who’ve been there, it’s that mix of nervousness over whether the dress fits and excitement to try on ‘the one’ again!! For those of you who haven’t yet been there, yes wedding prep is a roller coaster of emotion, but it is worth every second – it is quite literally a once in a life time, so just enjoy.

I thought it would be lovely to share my Bridal Journey with you before the big day along with one of my best friends, the beautiful Bea!! To top it all off, the seamstress was so helpful and just took all that pressure away. Word of advice girls choose carefully because a good seamstress can make this day and the run up to your wedding such a dream rather than a chore (and that’s the last thing you want…trust me)!

Here are just a few little pics from today and a few of the dresses from my first dress trial that, how shall I put it, didn’t quite make the cut:

 

In love with the decor, and that chandelier – enough said:

Now for those that didn’t make the cut (first dress trial)!!

When the dress wear’s you instead of you wearing the dress:

When your mum pick’s one out, then realises her error:

The look on my face say’s it all…

Beautiful on some…not for me:

Graceful…but not what I was looking for:

Hope you enjoyed and stay tuned for the next instalment of ‘A Brides Journal’.

P.s. I said YES to the dress!
