Sunday, I went in for my wedding dress fitting. I did not manage to lose weight to fit into the dress. Therefore, I did not save myself money.
In fact, I may have actually gained a pound or two. Oh well, I am running now so at least I am trying to get fit, if not losing weight.
When I was in a wedding way back in 1998, I had my bridesmaid dress altered for $180. The alterations cost just as much as my dress. I expected my wedding dress alterations to cost at least $150. Imagine my delight and surprise at only paying $70. I probably could have paid even less if I hadn’t had them add straps to the dress.
Why all wedding dresses are strap-less is beyond me. If they are not strap-less, they tend to be “modest” dresses, which I find boring and not my taste. Since I plan to re-purpose my wedding dress, I had the seamstress add straps to mine. Plus, it makes me feel better knowing it won’t fall down. Not that it will be possible given how tight it is.
