A brief breakdown...

Friday night Joe and I had dinner at his parents house. I've had my wedding dress since last May. Purchased at Davids Bridal, it fit perfectly just needs to be shortened since I will be wearing ballerina flats. I've kept it at his parents house for safekeeping and prying eyes and hands. After dinner I decided to try it on b/c I need to get it altered and wanted to see how short I may want it and re-assure it still fit. WELL I put it on and couldn't zipper it. I was freaking out. Even with the help of my MIL we could get it to zipper.

I was devastated to say the least. How could I have put on weight. I run 3-3 1/2 miles a day 5-6 days a week. I watch everything I eat occasionally indulging myself but hey the run counter acts it right? My MIL says they must have given you the wrong size I don't remember you trying this size on. I couldn't remember. I went home with dress in hand ready to throw myself off our balcony. The wedding is 8 weeks away.

Saturday I woke up bright and early and took the dress to Davids Bridal hoping they could either exchange it ( I knew in the back of my mind it would be hard. All Sales are FINAL!) I walked in the store shaking. I spoke to a sales girl (actually the one who sold it to me) and explained that I think I got the wrong size dress. I haven't opened it since I bought it and just tried it on for the first time last night. Can someone please help me maybe I'm putting it on wrong. We went to a dressing room and she help me put it on. At first again to no luck with zipping it up. I know I haven't gained a tremendous amount of weight. Luckily Amanda(the sales girl) said "wait your holding the dress to high, bring it down. Once I did that she was able to zip it up like a glove! WHEW! crisis overt ed. I was putting it on wrong. It's and empire waist to I was pulling it up way to far therefore were it narrows it wouldn't zip past my back.

It is a tiny bit snug but they can let it out an inch or two. no problem. I was so relieved. All is happy in the world again LOL. This coming Thursday I go for my fitting to have them let it out just an inch and have it shortened. It will then be perfect. I will be watching what I eat from now until then though.

While I was there I purchased my tiara. Now I just need shoes....

Have a happy Sunday. I know I can now

OMG, I bet you were freaking out!! Wow, I'm so glad you just had the dress in the wrong place. Wow, that must have been stressful!!

Good luck and congrats on getting married. My wedding was 4 years ago, and it is still one of the happiest days of my life.
