good day bad day

Here's why today was a good day. Its very springy here - I took this photo on my walk at lunch. I love the trees! Ok well that about sums up the good day aspect of things.

I went for my final dress fitting tonight. When my dress came in it fit pretty well, but she decided it needed to be taken in 'a little'. Well she took it in more than a little, she even admitted it was probably more than she should have. But its not fixable, so... nothing like a too-small wedding dress to really get that gym motivation going. The woman altering the dress scheduled two other appointments at the same time as mine, which means I got about 30 seconds of her attention. At the end of our appointment she politely wadded up the train of my dress and shoved it in the dress bag. Don't worry, its only lace. And then it was completely impossible to nail her down on a time I could actually pick up the completed dress.

And for whatever reason, more than one person referred to my mom in wedding related conversations today. Example...random coworker "well only a few more weeks to go! I know my wife was so relieved it was over and her mother finally stopped driving her crazy, so you're probably really looking forward to that". I would, except that my mother passed away. I'd give anything to have her driving me crazy right now pal.

I think the days events just kind of tipped the pot that was brimming with wedding-related frustrations. And I got home tonight and had a little bridezilla meltdown. I think its only right to share this because a) I kind of need the outlet to vent to and b) sometimes planning a wedding is the most fabulous thing ever, but there are also days when it kind of gets to be too much.

PS I'm sorry i posted' thursday shoes' yesterday. Turns out today is Thursday.

I feel your pain. I am new to your blog, but I bought a hair piece from Twigs and Honey for my ceremony because of you. I am going through similar emotions and moments, but my mom is alive, and a raging alcoholic! I am closer with my step-mom who now doesn't want to come because their is drama back home in VA. I am in UT. and hate being a middle man. I am getting a massage today! Oh, and my dress is too small and I gained weight. It is really fun (snarky sarcasm). Enough dumping on you. I really just know it gets hard. I am 1 month and 1/2 out and it has been a tough month. Don't worry. Tomorrow is another day. Enjoy yourself and keep taking those lovely walks. I don't mind reading about stress and sad things. It s only human and real!

Hey Alissa!

I was just checking in to see how you were doing and am so sorry to hear about this previous day! I wish I could have commented sooner. I just wanted to say that you're a lovely and talented lady and I know when all is said and done, you will have the most fabulous wedding day! I think everyone is prone to feeling like a bridezilla from time to time... it's hard when you're super stressed about getting everything right and it seems like no one really cares about your wedding except you, which can result in feeling like bridezilla. BUT this is an important day, and no matter what others think and what craziness happens around you, your feelings about your wedding are the most important and are the feelings that truly count... so I say, have a total freak out day from time to time. Just cut loose and vent! Make people listen! :D In theory, you only get this chance once, yes (or several times)? This IS important and I'm feeling you over here! So sorry about the insincere comments and the dress lady! Thank you for venting, actually! It's good to see that a real bride has real feelings! myra :: twigs & honey
