My dress is in!

Monday, March 09, 2009

So I got the postcard saying that my dress is in. The wedding is in a little over 10 weeks so I need to go in two to three weeks for my first fitting. I also have to call soon if I want a Saturday so I don't have to use PTO. I still need to get shoes and a new bra. I think the bra I have is a little big now. For shoes, I'm not sure what I'm going to do. I'd like something with a little support. I can't really wear heels because my ankle would hurt. I'm short but at least, I won't be the shortest there even if I didn't wear heels. My MOH is 6 inches shorter than me and my fiance is only an inch or two taller than me.

    Great that the dress is in. Go for comfort in the shoes, you will be on your feet for a while and it's important to be able to stay in your shoes! No one usually sees them anyway!

  Congrats! Don't let your fiance see the dress at all. My wife never let me see hers and when I saw it for the first time when she started walking down the isle, I couldn't stop smiling.

I'm sure you'll find the right shoes. You still have quite a bit of time. My wife bought a basic pair and then spent some time making them stylish by adding gems and designs.

    That is so exciting! I agree with the ballet slippers suggestion. They are really comfortable. Congrats!!!!!!

    Oh how exciting the dress is here. I know you are going to look so lovely in it. It is also great that you have to get a new bro, not the expense but cause the pounds are gone.

I think ballet slippers would be comfortable. The only time the shoe is seen is when the groom takes the garter off to throw. Really no one is paying attention to the shoes at that time anyway.

    I wore dancing shoes - ballroom - for my wedding. They are plain; but, very comfortable and supportive. No one really saw them since my dress was so long. Since height isn't an objective, you might try ballet slippers.

    I have had ankle surgery and cannot wear heels anymore either. I wore 'flat pumps' for my wedding. They look like a classic pump, just with no heel. Added a clip made from beads to each to fancy them up a bit, and still wear the shoes today without the clip.

You could also look into some sort of fancy low boot, if you need the support around the ankle.

HTH and makes sense.

    Can you get low heels? I haven't worn heels in so long I don't even know what they look like.
Good luck.
