    Try taking probitics so it will wash out any bad bacteria. I am so sorry you have to deal with it. Feel better.

    Mckee, ouch! Did you pay her? She should refund your
    money! I hope you can find someone to fix it. How did she butcher it?

      Thanks, I hope it will. No, she thought it looked fine. I honestly think she thought I wanted to show too much skin. She did the opposite of what I wanted her to do to take the bodice in and its heaved up around my underarms, which pulled the entire dress all the way up....Definitely not the pretty look any of us are going for and pretty dang uncomfortable to boot. (Imagine your relatively normal arms looking a bit like snausages (yes, as in the doggie treat) sticking out of your once beautiful dress.)The dress looks like a completely different dress. Anyway, going to look far and wide for a seamstress down by where we live that can perform a miracle in the next week and pray that it works out. My FI is military and we have been here less than a year, so a bit harder than if we were in TX or CA, where we are from and know people.

        I would go to the nearest boutique for even davids bridal and talk to one of the seamstresses there that are used to working with all different kinds of wedding dresses. Oh sweetie, best of luck. Like Jess said, it will all work out and you will be gorgeous on your wedding day.

          2Mckee yikes that is tough not knowing the locals quite yet but like Lisa said you may be better off checking out a bigger location like david's bridal. They may be more accustomed to these kinds of situations. I would also try calling other popular bridal stores in your area maybe the have a recommendation.

          I am keeping my fingers crossed for you :)

Got it at a sample sale at Kleinfelds in NY and it doesnt even look like the same dress I bought....Boo.
            I am so sorry. I would definately try David's. I had both of my dresses altered there and they were fabulous. Good luck. Keep us posted.

              I'm curious why so many people are having hair/makeup done outside of the resort?

              Are they not pros at the Spazul? Should I be worried? lol

                I went outside of the resort based on mixed reviews. I have heard good and bad and I just did not want to risk it. I will have an afro in that weather if its not tamed correctly lol based on Fernandos reviews I thought for me personally it was the best choice.

                    I just emailed Fernando lol!!!

                    Diana, did you say Norma came to the resort? I would really like stuff done in my room so I stay relaxed. Did she put some kind of finishing spray afterward?

                      For everyone that recently had your weddings. Does the coordinator go over how the ceremony will go with you and the wedding party? I'm planning on having FI uncle, who is an ordained minister perform the ceremony since we are doing symbolic. I haven't asked his uncle yet, but he keeps asking us if we want him to do it. I'm nervous about everyone not knowing what they are doing....or do I just line everything up myself and tell everyone?

                      Maybe I should tell everyone a time the day before to meet, show them the gazeebo (since most are staying at Royal and wedding is at Real) and do a dinner. Is it hard to get reservations for about 30 ppl? How far in advance should I make the reservation...a day...a week before?
