Njork requested me to drop by their shop so I can fit my reception gown before they start sewing the crystals on it. They requested me to bring the shoes that I will be wearing so we can decide on the length of the gown.
When I was putting on the gown, I noticed that they lowered the neckline and made the gown deeper at the back. At first, I was hesitant to have a low neckline but they were explaining to me that a lower neckline would give the illusion of a thinner frame. (Emphasis on the illusion as my frame is far from thin.) When I looked at the mirror, I was happy with the result! The gown made me look 15 lbs thinner! yippee!
Francis and I also got to discuss the length of the gown - the lining will be cut mid-thigh but all the outer layers will be kept long. So the gown will be floor-length but it will show a lot of leg when I walk. That will somehow meet my friends' demands for me to wear a mini-skirt for the wedding.
I put on a counter on my blogsite to help me panic. We've got less than 2 months to go and we're so excited!!!
Rey's going to faint when he hears about this. I got a 3rd photographer to cover our wedding. We now have 3 photographers for our 58 guests. (I don't have to clear photo-related wedding preps with Rey since he's not into pictures. If it's up to him, we'll have our officiating officer taking the shots.)
Why get a 3rd photographer? Because I couldn't stop myself from getting the services of Carlo Villonco. He is such a nice person and we feel so comfortable with him. We are also very happy with our pre-nup shots and we just love the free PhotoDVD that he gave us. And Rey thinks that I look really pretty in Carlo's pictures (need I say more?).
