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
