Wedding Dress Alterations

Last Saturday, Daughter drove up from college to go to her wedding dress fitting.  This time it was just her and me.  We were ten minutes early and the shop hadn't opened yet so we went over to Kohl's to look for shoes.  We found these awesome blue suede platforms.  They have a 5 inch heel and a 1 inch platform under the ball of the foot.  We are going to look around for something one inch shorter.  But they saved us from having to have the dress hemmed.  

Her fiance is 6' 4" while she is 5' 5", so it works out. Both bridesmaids are about 5' 7".  You can see some of the details of the dress in the mirror.  It is fit and flare, has beading, lace overlay, lace edging, and small three dimensional flowers. 

Here the fitter is pinning up the train into a bustle so Daughter will be able to dance at her reception.

As we work out more details I will share what I can (without giving it all away! After all, a bride needs some mystery.)
Hope you enjoyed this little sneak peek at the wedding!
