and it fits!

I had my first dress fitting yesterday. My dress pretty much fits perfectly, it just needs a tiny bit taken in at the top (since I have no boobs) and then a hem. Our seamstress is amazing (she also did my BFF K's dress in April, which is how we found her) and she also is going to attach my beaded sash exactly the way I want. I tried on my whole ensemble yesterday and of course we took about a million pictures!!
Trying out bustles. We're going with a traditional bustle with 3 hooks - it helps to keep all the buttons down the back showing and really goes well with the shape of the dress. (you can see the bustle in the mirror reflection)
Trying out a french bustle, which we decided was too much for my sleek dress. 
With the veil - my veil is my "something borrowed" and it's English net, not tulle. It's the softest thing I have ever touched. 
I seriously could not be any more in love with my dress!!
A full shot while I was practicing walking. 

So we're at 33 days now - so excited!! Off to order our programs, table numbers and menu cards today and then another personal training session. Those pictures of my dress are totally my motivation!!
