Today I tried on my wedding dress for the first time. It's so beautiful! It's funny how the dress I ended up with is NOTHING like what I was looking for when I went dress shopping. But it's perfect and I love it. The bridal boutique owner ordered a size 4 for me and it fits really well. The bustline needs to be taken in and the hem needs to be shortened slighty, but that's the extent of the alterations. I'll go in for my second fitting in April. I intended to try on veils with the dress today, but when I looked in the mirror I knew immediately that I won't be wearing one. A veil would only take away from the dress and I love it too much to do that. The dress is enough to make me look and feel like a bride on my wedding day and that's all I ever wanted!

P.S. In order to keep the dress details as much of a secret as possible, I won't post the fitting pictures here. If you would like to see them, send me an email (lcgleason@juno.com) and I'll let you know where to find them. But beware, the pictures were taken by the boutique owner and me (whie wearing the dress) so they aren't very good!

Who are we keeping the dress details a secret from?
 
That's so exciting and wonderful! Only a few more months and you'll be wearing the dress down the aisle! I'm sure you'll be glowing! Congratulations!!!
