I had my final dress fitting yesterday. My seamstress, Connie, is absolutely amazing! You would never know the dress was at least 3, if not 4, sizes too big when I went to her less than 2 months ago. It is stunning and fits like a glove. My mom came to the final fitting yesterday with her good friend to learn how to do my complicated double bustle. There are 10 snaps and 15 ties, I think. Luckily, Connie was able to color code the ties to make it a little easier, but it's still pretty complicated! The double french bustle is gorgeous - it reminds me of Marie Antoinette or other French royalty. Love it!
The main point of this post is a sweet email I got from my dad this morning:
Mom said your dress is beautiful!!! I'm sure even more so with you in it :)
Isn't that so sweet? I'm lucky to have such great parents. My mom sent me an email last night, too, telling me how great I looked in the dress. All the hard work of watching what I eat has paid off!
