Close-- but no cigar

Well, I'm back from the bridal salon, and it felt a bit like Judgment Day. LOL! I picked up my veil. I loved it with my dress even more. It made swallowing the price a bit easier. The end result-- the dress still doesn't fit.If you look closely enough, you'll see it's just a 1 inch by 2 inch section in my middle that doesn't fit. I'm not super disappointed because I didn't think it would fit yet. I'm probably the most upset that this dress is marked one size and it no where close to the size it says... apparently! I've dropped about 15 pounds since I tried the dress on last and maybe 25 pounds since I first bought it. I think I need to lose at least another 10-15. Hell, when I've lost 55 pounds already, 15 doesn't sound so bad :) I can do it! The lady at the bridal salon didn't sound like she had faith in me, but I could care less. 

Before (August 2009)

Today (April 2010)


  1. I can't wait until you do fit the dress. Then you can rub it in the bridal salon lady's face. :) Sorry, guess it's the Hubbs' instinct to prove people wrong. You look absolutely incredible, I got teary eyes seeing the pics you sent in the email. I'm so happy for you!

  2. Wow!You're doing amazing!And you're much closer to it fitting.

  3. Wedding dresses are indeed sized differently. There can be a large discrepency bewteen a "street" size 12 and a "wedding dress" size 12. You're doing great! So, don't get discouraged.
