Everything went perfectly at my final dress fitting this afternoon 🙂
But before we get to that (I hope you all don’t mind) I wanted to share some pictures from today.
From my workout this morning. I promised I’d give a view of the sweat fest that was my speed workout this morning (apologies to anyone who is grossed out by that picture. You won’t be alone in your feelings of disgust I’m sure).
Don’t worry — we all can’t be this glamorous after a good workout.
Honest-To-God the largest zucchini I have ever seen in my life. That picture of Gus behind the zuch is an 8 by 10…and is dwarfed by my new friend zuchinni. We have a wonderful lady at work who has a great organic garden, and brings in the most ridiculous produce. I have been intimidated by them to date, but today I decided zucchini bread and brownies sound delish, so I brought it home (please, any recipes you recommend, send my way.)
Zach and August sharing some afternoon kisses. Love them. Just because I thought it was cute.
I was actually pretty anxious going into my fitting tonight. The dress has fit me perfectly in the bodice, but was extremely long in length, had layers from the fullness taken out, and really had no room for me to gain/lose any weight.
All things considered, I really didn’t have that much done to the dress in comparison to some stories I heard, but I had NO idea what to expect going to my fitting tonight. Every other time I’ve stepped into the dress, it’s been far too long and hard to imagine being fit for my little body (I’m 5′ tall…tiny).
Today, I walked in with my beautiful shoes (I’m obsessed), and was prepared for anything. In the end, the dress fit perfect, and I wouldn’t change a thing about the final product at this point. I even took another big step and DESIGNED MY VEIL. I had been stressing a little bit about what I was going to do, and just really wasn’t having any luck finding things in store or on etsy. My amazing seemtress let me know that, if I was interested, I could give them specs and they could design my veil for me, for a great price. I jumped on it, and totally took a leap of faith by doing so. I’ll see the veil for the first time September 5 when I pick up the dress, but am confident that it will be exactly what I dreamt of.
I stayed strong, but during the fitting I did really miss having family or friends with me. It was hard to be sitting there, staring at myself in the dress, for the first time, and not having anyone to share it with.
That’s OK — the wedding day is going to be that much more special as everyone will be seeing it all for the first time.
Everything fit great, the cut was perfect, I absolutely ADORE the bustle, and the veil was the final touch I needed. I really could NOT be happier, and just continue to get more and more excited for the big day. . .
While I don’t have any pictures of the dress, I do have a pictures of my other favorite piece.
My something blue.
The fitting was quick and simple as everything worked out well. Afterwords, I met Zach at our favorite grocer, Sprouts. We picked up groceries for the week, as well as dinner for the night and made our way to Zach’s favorite watering hole, Denver Brew Co.
I enjoyed another Ginger Ale
To wash down my spicy jalapeno chips and
pretty awesome strawberry salad.
It was another beautiful night in Denver, so it was nice to enjoy dinner outside.
Now, we’re back at home and relaxing for the night with our furbabies. I think dessert is calling 🙂
Tomorrow: More Wedding Fun!
Tomorrow morning we have our final walk through at our venue, Boettcher Mansion. I can’t wait to walk through and really create the setting that we have dreamt up for our big day! Once again, I’ll be back with an update and lots of pictures tomorrow! 🙂
