He is quite traditional... but I'm not so much.
Any tips that will help reduce my stress that I've created for myself? I don't want to hate the process, but I'm afraid that I will because I hate my body.
Hello! I just wanted to let you know something that I just found out having gone to my first fitting for alterations. I had bought a strapless A-Line but did not feel comfortable with the way it made my underarms look. They actually said they could add straps to almost any A-Line dress in alterations! They even had a set of straps to try on and see which ones I liked. You should ask the boutique you are looking at if they can do straps in alterations. I went to David's Bridal, but asked other boutiques just out of curiosity and the majority of them said they could add a jacket, capped off sleeves, two inch wide sleeves, lace sleeves, the whole nine yards!
