I had a surreal experience yesterday.
You see, I had my gown fitting yesterday. I had been mum to Myke and most of my friends regarding the design of my gown. I've only shown it only a trusted few cos I want the guests to watch in awe when I take that walk down the aisle :P
Ok, ok. I'm exaggerating but I do want them to have something to look forward to (cos the bride is always THE star. Har har!). Anyway, Ruel spoiled my surprise when he pointed out to Myke my gown when he accompanied his mom for her gown fitting. Grrr. But Myke kept assuring me that it wasn't as if the gown is finished already. But still... *grumble*grumble*
To keep things a bit more complicated, Myke was with us during my gown fitting :( I noticed though that he stepped outside the shop when I had the dress on. And here I was thinking I will take his breath away when he sees me for the first time. *sigh*
Well, all that seemed petty when saw I myself in the mirror. The dress is beautiful even if there isn't any straps or beading yet and the hemline is way too long. And well,
I was thinking, "Dang! I already looked good in this simple strapless gown. How much more if I'm all dolled up?". Ha ha ha!
I was kinda on cloud nine all the time I had the dress on even if they had a hard time closing the zipper. Yes, it was wee bit tight cos I gained weight :P I was expecting that already cos I remembered my measurements when Ruel took it waayy back in June and I was keeping track of my waistline. (Damn you, DQ for your Strawberry Cheesecake blizzard!). I was still in my own bubble so Ruel's slight (asking me, "Baket ka tumaba Grace?") didn't affect me much. The difference is still workable and I still have two months to get myslef into shape. *cross fingers*
I am to come back on September for another fitting. My female entourage's gowns are already done. Ruel told me my girls could pick them up if there aren't any more alterations :) I saw some of the gowns already finished, with the beadings all in. I'm sure we'll all look nice. For now, I have to focus on tying not to add more inches on my midsection otherwise, I might have to don a bedsheet on my wedding day :P
