My Wedding Dress has arrived in store :).

Katrina, 19 of June of 2024 at 15:31 Posted on Wedding Attire 0 59

I went to find my dream dress at the end of March I got a message yesterday to say that it had NOW arrived. I thought it would not be ready till about September/ October time. They told me up to 3-6 months.


I have 10 days to go and try it on just in case anything needs to be changed with the designer etc. I am so excited to put my actual wedding dress on Smiley smile I feel a bit nervous as well. I am also due on my period I told the shop that they said I can try it on for a few mintues jsut to check everything. I will wear period underwear.


The wedding dress sample I tried on fitted fine did not feel to tight really but they have sized me up. So if anything it will feel as though I have more room in it Smiley smile I am so excited I break up for summer break tomorrow. Knowing that next week I will be trying my dress on has come at the right time really. I am taknig my Mum with me Smiley smile.

    Smiley smile Indeed it is. I have ordered myself a 2nd dress from Coast to wear in the evening to change into. As I can see it being a struggle trying to use the toilet in a wedding dress lol 😆. Plus wanted something comfortable on in the evening. I can have different pictures in the new dress too so win win!!

    Hey Shay,
    We are in July tomorrow we are in double digits for you now Smiley smile you must be so excited. I hope you enjoy every moment.

    I have ordered a 2nd dress from Coast as don't think it's practical to be in wedding dress all day. I keep thinking how will I go use the toilet?lol is it just me? Will have my mum to help me of course. Think it will be easier when I change dresses.x

    Yes we are! Thank you for saying! I am feeling all of the emotions!


    How funny, I am laying in bed looking for a second dress and came off to chill for a while and look on here. I don’t plan to change into one but would like to have it there just in case!
    Haha, my seemstress has left my dress a little looser around my legs to pee, haha, although I would have preferred it slightly tighter she says you have to walk and she is right, I would have been shuffling! Haha! She has made my dress even more perfect.
    I am so happy you enjoyed your whole experience. X

    Smiley smile Is it starting to feel more real now? Are you all sorted with your suppliers etc?=) I hope so. All the planning is being brought alive.


    Ah good idea will mention it to my seamstress. I like the way my dress is not to tight on tummy area Smiley smile which I am happy about.

    Coast is a good website Smiley smile that's where I ordered my dress on. The dress is coming from Debenhams so looks like they are still going online just no shop presence anymore.x

    Yes it is! It is very emotional and everyone’s emotions are heightened! We are organized (still waiting on foods final bill etc) but it still feels like we have lots to do but we have spaced it all out evenly. Myself and my partner are going to go for a nice spa the week before and relax just us 2 there is some good deals on at the moment.


    Honeymoon isn’t booked but I am not bothered if we are meant to go away we will find a good deal.
    That’s great. I am happy you feel good in your dress. I have a healthy figure I would say but I am concious of my large hips but it is obviously just what we wear in day to day life that’s maybe not right as my hips are tiny and well proportioned in my dress. I hope the photos look the same. Haha.
    I will have a look on there now. X

    Yes that’s exactly what we are doing! No treatments, just using all the facilities! We did it for my fiancés birthday and had the best time.


    Kenya is where we want to go but that will be July 2025. That is out of budget this year we think but also our holidays don’t match flights.
    That is great. All organized! That’s a good place to be.
    Oh very good. I don’t need a bra luckily enough but I got my sucky ins from marks and Spencer’s. Haha.

    Aww that sounds lovely hope you both get to go. 😍 We have booked our honeymoon for a few months after the wedding as I have to book during half term school holidays. We are off to Dominican Republic Smiley smile can't wait!


    I am actually going to wear nipple sticker covers it feels comfortable for me. There are bra cups made in the wedding dress which is handy lol.

    Oh yes!!! We have been! We stayed at the Bahia principe Bavaro I think it was called? That was 8 years ago! There is different parts to it. Think there is a diamond etc? It was very nice! I bet you can’t wait. It’s nice to do it a little after keeps it all going. How exciting!

    Yes it is! Hahah. I didn’t think it covers. X

    Just looked it up looks stunning!=)
    I really love to travel we went to Greece last year to Corfu we stayed at The Aleos beach resort something like that. Think I have spelt it incorrect lol 😆. Do you think after your wedding you will feel strange when there is nothing to plan?

    It's going to feel strange so it's good that you have spaced out your honeymoon something to look forward to!

    Haha, we haven’t been on a summer holiday since 2017!! We couldn’t beleive it. I think we will actually. Although we have spaced it out well it’ll still be a miss as we have had the best of fun planning it. X

My last holiday was 2019 then finally we went Greece 2023 last year. So hoping for more holidays & to get in a rhythm again. Have you got any kids yet?x

    That’s amazing! We have done New York and London in that time just not a sunny holiday together to relax but I think I would prefer your new York’s etc if I’m honest. Yes. We did have Jamaica booked for 2020 but then just got our money back. But yes we will get something relaxing booked either way! No kids here. We are both very relaxed about children. We hope they come along one day but no rush. X

    Yes! It was wonderful! We danced all night! I’ve had 3! The woman who didn’t want any, haha. But I did not have a choice in the matter and I really enjoyed every single one. Yes, plenty of water.
