Uncategorized, Wedding WEDDING: behind the scenes 27 December 2009

These are some “behind the scenes” photos 😛 About 2 days before the wedding.. when it was the MAD DASH for the final dress fitting (usually this takes place over the course of around 6 months, but because we don’t live there, I didn’t have that luxury). And so I was warned over and over again not to gain weight. Did I succeed? Well, let’s just say I was the fattest I have ever been in my life on my wedding day. Yeah, in 27 years, I was my heaviest weight ever, right SMACK on my wedding day. I was actually quite upset and self-conscious about it, because I was sad that I wouldn’t be that ultra-thin bride that every girl is on her wedding day 🙁

FAIL!

But, I’m not too stressed about it now, since after all, I still walked down the aisle and Chris still married me 😛 Besides, now that I’ve seen the pics, I reckon both my dresses looked better with curves. Anyway, that’s my story and I’m sticking with it!! 😛

So this is what both my dresses looked like, “in the works”. You’ll see pins here and there whilst they nipped and tucked it in so it fit me like a glove. It was a really nice (and surreal) feeling designing my wedding gown and trying it on. It felt… amazing.. when I first put it on. That moment of sheer wonder when you look at yourself in the mirror and see your body swathed in the divine fabric.

And most of all, the utter DELIGHT of what was going to take place in just a few days time 🙂


Hair trial (didn’t like this one)

Me and Mum

Chris and his parents. LOL at his dad!

The bride to be 🙂

Yeah those are pins all over the bustline. The swarovski crystals weren’t sewn on yet..

And this is later on, when the Swarovski crystals were on

Dad looking v cute 😛

    your story’s right! I don’t think it would have looked this good if you were thinner actually…curves are nice 😉

    You are such a tiny girl that any thinner and you would’ve looked TOO thin, I think! You looked absolutely perfect on your wedding day and the dresses fit you beautifully! Since you weren’t in town for the fittings, does that mean you really only had 1 or 2 in total before the wedding day??

    ugh Similar thing happened to me on my wedding day, although once I zipped up my dress I refused to think of it again… as long as I got my dress on!
    I love that red dress! Do you ever think you will wear it again? (i.e for a ball or something?)

    Think of it this way – to generalise, a lot of brides lose weight as they’re all stressed & worried, you’re lucky to be surrounded by loving families & friends and the most important thing is that you’re HAPPY 🙂 You look gorgeous with curves and it shows on the gowns!
    Out of curiosity – where did you get that beautiful crystal headband? I love it!

      I guess that’s a great way of thinking about it! 🙂

      I got it from a French boutique in Shanghai.. It was freakin’ $$$$$ but in some other pics, you’ll see me wearing a swarovski crystal crown – that was about 1/10 the price but looked just as good imho 😛
