Until Saturday when I had my first dress fitting. It's been 9 months since I last put the dress on, and when I stepped into it I knew I was still in love with it!
Becky (the tailor) was such a sweet lady who came with raving reviews from other local brides. She laced me up while showing Mama E how to avoid making it too tight at the top. After pinning up the hem, we discussed the options for the bustle. First up the American bustle:

I won't have the strings hanging out on the wedding day
I don't know what it is about the French bustle, but I loved it! Becky said either bustle would work with the beading at the bottom of my dress, so we took a vote. 3 easy votes for French and we were good to go.
Did you second guess your dress over time or during a long period of not seeing it? What type of bustle are you using on your dress?
