    I ordered my gown from China . Before you wonder why, the same gown at David's Bridal was $479.00 . They are made in China anyway . I got the exact one with shipping for less than $200. It is being custom made to my measurements and since I had to wait, she is adding the crinoline for free .
    I'm just starting to panic . It is suppose to be here April 5th Fed Ex . What if it isn't the right color blue ? What if I don't look right in it . I put on a few pounds . :blush: although I enjoy being bustier :blush:, I'm fat under that area . I look terrible in a bathing suit and haven't even bought one yet, I'm so disgusted . If the gown isn't for me , I only have a month to find another that I like . :eek:
    That's my rant for the day .
    Since I haven't smoked in 6 months, I enjoy eating, a little too much .

    Trust me, a good seamstress can do wonders. A dear friend had her wedding gown come in at 2 sizes smaller than it was supposed to and the seamstress made it work, and work beautifully.

    You'll look lovely! Don't worry, I'm sure the gown will be beautiful when it arrives and I can't wait to see the pictures.

    Don't worry so much about the dress, it can all be worked out! If its too tight, A little armor under the dress works magic, if its loose go eat something! As long as you both are together to enjoy it in good health that is all the matters the rest is all frosting on the cake!!!!!! I hope it gets there soon so you can put that concern aside and enjoy! I hope all turns out fantastic for you!

    Debi find something that you can do with your hands besides eat. I've started reading a lot again and scrapbooking to keep me busy while I watch tv. Or I sit on my hands to keep them from moving to my mouth lol. Also keep your car an house stocked with fruit and fresh vegetables likes baby carrots and any fresh fruit. I say this because even though you can't do weight watchers right now those are 0 point foods and it helps to always have a healthy snack close at hand whether you are at home or on the go.

    So, I have heard nothing from my dress maker in China and today is April 3rd and it was suppose to be here , April 5th . I sent her a message and she sent me one back , Thank You for email dear friend . Workers had lots of holidays last month and your dress will be there on April 10th . I'm like sacreaming at the computer . Does this woman not get it that I need time to try it on and if I do not like it , I need to find another and I will only have a few weeks before we leave on may 6th . I have now gone from being nervous, too flipping out .

    No way you get it April 10th if it hasn't gone out yet. Customs takes time

    Have you gone to try on the dress at David's? Then maybe you would get an idea of whether or not you will like it.

    Oh Debi, I can't believe the silly woman!!!!! What is plan B?

    Don't make yourself sick... I know it's hard, but remember the important thing here is you and Jim reaffirming your love to one another - and in comparison the gown is a tiny part. You can't worry about these things and make yourself ill over it, that's not right. As difficult as it is, take a deep breath :hug: You still have time to formulate a fantastic plan B - remember Jim will say you are stunning in whatever you wear :wink:

    Plan B is a white & black prom gown I saw at The Deb Shop, but I want my blue one . She said if it don't make it on 15th as she is guaranteeing it will as she is sending it Fed Ex , I can keep the dress and she will refund me too .
