My dress! | The Budget Savvy Bride
The Budget Savvy Bride

I went in yesterday for what was supposed to be my final fitting but there were still a few things I wanted changed. I had to get all pinned up again to show how I wanted it to look. The bust area just still isn’t what I’m wanting- it’s too poofy so hopefully Dena can fix it and make it nice and tight and flat like I want it. I don’t feel like I’m being overly critical because, I mean, it’s my wedding dress! I got it custom made so it would be exactly what I wanted so I’m going to male sure to be honest if there is something I don’t like. Ya know? Anywho- here’s a pic I snapped in the dressing room, with my jewelry by Candy’s Art on Etsy and veil by Kasia, natch! ;)

    I also felt like a total bridezilla asking for changes to my dress. I actually TOLD the lady I felt like a bridezilla, and she was like, “this is my JOB and i want you to feel like it’s perfect!”

    made me feel better! :)
