That's excellent that it fits! Will the bridal shop hold onto your dress until you are ready for fittings? I think mine will be in March!!!!

Hey Goldenbride, No we took it away with us but the same shop isn't a bridal shop exactly... they don't do alterations so my mam took it home an we'll keep it there, but most bridal shops keep it there until the final fitting!! Mine wasn't due until the end of Feb cos we didn't order it until mid october!!! I nearly died when I heard it was in!!

I think that I will have about 5 months before the wedding when it comes in. I will have to get somewhere to keep it if the bridal shop doesn't! Somewhere safe that nobody can see it!

Well we were a little devious >:o) the whole family are mad to see it, my mam is more adamant than me that no one sees it... she doesn't even want bms or my work friends to see it (my bms are a little laxy dazical so the girls at work are helpin me with alot of planning!) so basically the dress is in a cream duvet cover & then the dress bag and hanging in my mams guest room, with all the other wedding stuff, but the family have been told its at my house >:o) If you do keep it yourself make sure u take the clear plastic off it and put in a clean light colored duvet cover to protect it... some valuable tips from our dressmaker!
