Say Yes to the Dress!

I just went over to the tailor here in Nati and dropped off my wedding dress fabric (called ’tissu’ here). I talked with her about the specifics which was difficult to do in French (I have no idea how to say sweetheart neckline in French haha) but I had several drawings to show her and she seemed to really understand. She took about twenty measurements and asked a lot of questions. She knew it was for my wedding and she seemed really excited about getting to be a part of it. I told her I’d get pictures that she could see of the wedding and she was so excited!

Anyway, it should be ready in about a week and I’m leaving the country pretty soon after that. All in all, after buying the fabric (16 mille…about $32) and paying the tailor (7.5 mille…about $15), my wedding dress will end up being less than $50. Honestly, if I have to get it tweaked a little in the dates, it’ll probably cost more in the states than the whole dress has!

I’m so excited!

I’ve just been hanging out here in Nati, saying some good-byes and eating girl-power cake with the ladies here. It’s very bittersweet. I know leaving is the right decision, but I’m certainly going to miss the volunteers here and the place. But I’d miss it if I left in four months, too, so that doesn’t really change anything.

But, yeah. Dress!

without tulle...but I might add some in the states if I decide I want some fluff

 

I’m so happy! 😀

Keep it classy,
