Progress in some areas...

Friday, August 06, 2010

Sadly, nothing ground breaking to report where weight-loss is concerned, but the wedding is progressing, slowly but surely...and my dress is here !

I am going slowly crazy with all the organisation (note to self, remember for future event that self is NOT organised) but focussing on the fact that EVENTUALLY it will be over, and that I can claim my life back...hopefully.

So without further ado, the obligatory teaser pictures of the dress..it's long but not too long, it is snug but I can still breath and walk (although I was not brave enough to attempt sitting) and I need to find a wonderbra and a few pairs of socks to fill the cleavage as it has turned out a little generously sized (I blame my poor measuring).

I LOVE it, it was VERY affordable ($170 MADE TO MEASURE!) and it only took 3 weeks to arrive from the lovely helpful people (yes, really) at Milanoo.

Now all that money I saved? We are getting a REALLY good photographer (with excellent Photoshop skills) to make sure we LOVE our wedding photos for decades to come :)

    Absolutely beautiful! I'm sure you will look stunning in it. And with the help of a really good bra, you may not need those extra socks. Just don't be afraid to shell out the extra $$$ for it.

    Thank you all for the kind coments...I love it and I am so happy that it turned out well...my work colleagues were all very skeptical that such a bargain would even turn up, let alone be wearable...

Now for for the fun accessories' hunt
