Why didn't anyone tell me my dress was so large?

In the many fittings of my dress I never realized what a pain it would turn out to be. Don't get me wrong...it was beautiful and I felt like the princess that husband thinks I am while in it...but damn if that dress wasn't poofy.

Exhibit A: Trying to walk over to the church with dignity, grace and a serious need to not get my dress dirty...


Exhibit B: It took forever to get me into this position:

And it's funny too b/c you can see where the petticoat ends and the dress keeps going. Standing up was even harder.

Also, the petticoat...was the middle sized one. I don't even want to know how girls get around in the biggest sized one.

I don't even want to get into me getting up and sitting down over and over again at the reception.

Tomorrow: The Ceremony! Accompanied by yet another funny story.

*kisses*

It may have taken a long time, but it was worth it. Love that pic of you on the floor!

Yeah, I concur with Molly. That pic of you on the floor is awesome. I bet it was worth wearing the dress for the pictures alone :)

It was so cute, lol. Everytime you would go to sit, you'd get this really determined look on your face, and try to 'plop' down. Hehe.

Hehe..I had the biggest one available at my bridal shop. I did it to prevent alterations, which I should have just spring for. I also had the tallest shoes I could find. sitting was itchy on the backs of my legs. Yours looks to have filled out your dress beautifully!
