  1. Oops! Forgot one of the pictures! Here's the back of the dress. Need to find me a size 10 gal to model the dress so I can see what it looks like on an actual person. I'll be a size 10 soon enough!
  2. Hey Ladies! I've been around for a long time... fiance and I had to move our wedding to an unknown date. Recently, I got super bored of not having anything wedding related to do, so I bought a dress from www.peridress.com on a whim. What's more, I bought it several sizes smaller than I currently am ... but I'm ok with that. Thought I'd throw out some pics... Inspiration dress is Amy Michelson's Grace (http://www.amymichelson.com/popup_grace.html). The dress looks fairly similar to the inspiration pictures... so I am pretty pleased with how it turned out. Now I don't know what to do with my tim
  3. You girls are the best! I'm at 67/100 so I'm definitely getting closer. I really appreciate your honesty and willingness to fill it out. I think the project is going to shape up nicely.
  4. THANK YOU SO MUCH!! I'm halfway to my 100 minimum goal. It's not too late to take it if you haven't! I will definitely share the results with everyone -- the project is slated to be done by June. A quick sneak peak... My prelim results show that MOST people are super stressed out about planning their weddings and are spending over 50 hours agonizing over the details. They also find that figuring out how to translate their vision within their timeframe and budget is fairly difficult. Tradeshows, magazines, and workshops don't appear to be the best use of details planning dollars.
  5. Hey Ladies, So aside from being a bride and trying to plan my own wedding (I'm really hoping we can go destination again - stupid economy), I am an event planning student at a community college near Seattle. I'm in my final quarter and decided to tackle the wedding planning industry for my final project. In the long run, I'm hoping to develop a free resource to help brides know how to wade through ALL the information out there. Could you take 5 minutes and fill out my survey so I know where to focus my research and how to frame the project? My professor wants at least 100 re
  6. Oh Lordy... its been a while since I posted this topic.... and I wish, 6 months later, that I had a better understanding of how to include the ladies in the day. I'm really leaning towards having a neuter party - I have some guy friends that I was really super close to before my FI an I got together... they really did a good job of protecting my heart and treating me like a sister. And while we know that's what they did, I still can't get over the fact that it would appear that I have best friends who are male (which is NOT what we want to portray)... though it would allow him to have h
  7. Thanks for all the tips... Everyone knows it is a DW. As soon as we decided on DW, we picked a date 18 months out and told our closest friends and family... then a few months after that we had an engagement party and reminded them... so its not like it is going to blindside anyone. People are just getting kinda ansy about booking (my aunt already booked on her own) which makes me ansy about not giving them the opportunity to book.... and in order for that we need to get the contract signed with our deposit. We've been barely skating by on unemployment... my "pay" was cut in
  8. Oh wonderful ladies of BDW... its been a whirlwind couple of months. I had taken a break on wedding planning because it hurt way too much to even dream about it. Between a possible lack of funds for a wedding and the very really possibility of breaking up completely, my FI and I have just been way in over our heads. I have a question. We're now 6 months out from our DW. We've been planning a DW since last year around this time... so we've had the blessing of a long time to plan and save. But as of today, nothing has gone our way in terms of finances... with both of us laid off, ou
  9. Hi Moon Palace brides! I haven't been around in a while but was thinking about you... We can't wait for February... eep! It's coming so fast.
  10. I hope this is in the right spot... One of my friends asked me today about doing the group booking thing at Palace Resorts and I thought I'd see if any of you have ever heard of this being done. We're getting married at Moon Palace. Because it is one of the Palace Resorts, there are benefits (free nights, free functions) on the line if our guests book under our group contract. Some of our guests are not too keen on the idea of Moon Palace and have wondered about the other Palace resorts in the area. Since they have "sister resort" privillages... they wont have to pay for a day pass
  11. I agree with Betsy... we are having the same issue with people wanting to stay at another resort. It really isn't worth it when they figure in the transportation and the day pass. We are recommending that folks stay 3-4 days at the resort and then go somewhere else (like their timeshare) if they want something "cheaper"
  12. So I decided I want fire dancers... and I did a search for threads about them... and it sounded like a no go but the thread kind of died. Has anyone talked with the resort about fire dancers? What was the result?
  13. Yeah... I chose not to get married in Jamaica for the exact reason -- I wanted to fly someone in to officiate and wanted them to actually pronounce us man and wife.... We'll just visit Jamaica later I suppose.
  14. GOOD NEWS!!! I contacted Landy Bridal and they are going to design/create something similar for about $180 including postage! I'm so wicked excited to see the dress in person. We're going to probably order it next month some time - just waiting on our income source to stabilize for a little while.
