The wedding is nine days away...this is not a good time for catastrophic events (which every bride knows is any and every problem no matter how big or small). So, I went to pick up my wedding dress last night. I dropped if off a couple of months ago to be altered. It was far too long, so it was hemmed up several inches. I tried it on and the length is now perfect. However, it is quite loose around the bust and waist. Oops. Guess I lost a little bit of weight. This wouldn't be an issue of course, if I hadn't waited until the week before the wedding to have my second fitting! The dress shop informed me that they are also 6 weeks behind in the alteration schedule...but they would be able to fix it for me by next week. Phew. At least now I know my weeks of boot camp were worth the money!
