|Someday when I'm famous, this menu|
could be worth A LOT of money!
My good friend, Lisa, accompanied me to my fitting to act as my eyes for the occasion. Lisa is probably my most fuss-free and practical friend. She rarely wears makeup, and always has an easy smile. Anyway, I asked her to come with me because, when it comes to wedding dress alterations, the expenses can easily pile up. I trusted her to let me once I'd reached the good-enough-is-good-enough standard.
So anyway, Lisa took the bus to my place, and arrived 40 magical minutes early. We hung out for a few minutes and then realized we were both really, really, hungry. At first, Lisa suggested that we wait until after the fitting to enjoy a proper meal together. The unspoken assumption was that I'd want to be a little bit starving when I tried on my dress. You know: empty stomach = littler stomach = tears of joy when said stomach looks less chubby in wedding gown. Except something about that equation is totally dumb. I mean, if a little food in my tummy would prevent my dress from fitting, wouldn't I want to know NOW, not on October 1st? Secondly.... I'm planning to enjoy (a LOT of) the food on my wedding day. If anything, my dress needs room to expand in the gut!

than in real life!
I don't know what I was expecting, but I didn't realize I'd ordered the innards of a huge Philly Cheesesteak piled on top of an already huge hamburger! Woah! Well, I won't bore you with the details of how amazingly delicious this was, but let's just say I managed to eat every bite. Since it took two hands to eat my burger Lisa got a hefty share of the sweet potato fries. Life goes on. A girl has to prioritize, no?
And the dress fitting? It went great. Lisa and I were a little bit nervous about handling my dress with burger juice on our hands, but we cleaned up as best we could and persevered. The newly sweethearted neckline looked lovely, and my gown zipped up without complaint. In retrospect, I wouldn't have it any other way. Now if only I could get Cheesesteak Burgers on the wedding menu....
Question: any tips for finding time to actually EAT at one's own wedding? I hear this can be a challenge, but I'm really looking forward to the food!
