  1. Hello Ladies~ I have a beautiful white gown size 6 that I purchased, but I have found one I love more (Yes I've become that bride:) It is a mermaid style gown. It has a glitter design down the front with a layered tulle bottom. There are white and silver beads along the top of the skirt. It is strapless and has a low back. I paid $550 at a boutique in Chicago while on vacation. I does not have the tags, but I only wore it to try it on. I will consider any reasonable offer. I'm not exactly sure how to post pictures, sorry new and not very computer savvy LOL, but if you would like to pm me I'd be glad to email you some. Thanks so much for looking!
  2. I did buy my dress online, actually so far I've bought two. And now I'm looking for a third I went by the measurements that they said, but the gowns never fit, not even close. And to have them tailored will cost me upwards of $500. So I am starting back at square one. I am going to start looking at prom dresses, alot come in white and they're not your traditional wedding dress. I'm sure some women have had good luck online...just not meLOL My FI is going to wear linen pants and a dress shirt. He originally thought he'd wear a suit, but we think it will just be too hot and he doesn't want to be uncomfortable. Good Luck!!!

One who is constantly reminding you of how much he cares and how lucky his is to have you.... The one who turns to his friends and says, 'that's her.'†~~~Thank you~~~
  4. I appreciate everyone's support, concern, and advice. And I know that a lot of what you are saying is 100% correct. I can't remember who said that I will never forget that he said he was embarrassed of me, you are right. It has kind of just stuck in my head. I won't forget it, but I will try to forgive. Why he said it, honestly I don't know. He says he said it out of anger in the middle of an argument, but that still doesn't make it ok. I do love him and I believe that for all the wonderful things that we have in our relationship that he does deserve a second chance. And that is what I'm trying to give him right now. I don't know what the future will bring, I hope it will be a healed heart and a wonderful lifelong marriage, but I am not blind to the fact that it will take work from both of us. There are things that are not optional that he will have to change, and I will have to learn how to forgive him and move on. For the wedding, right now I'm not going to think about that right now. I need to give it some time before I know for sure, because only time will tell if things truly change. Thank you again for everything. It is helpful to hear from people who don't have a vested interested in the situation.
  5. Ladies Thank you so much for all of your advice, encouragement and support. I guess I should have clarified a few things. What I meant by saying that things would change after we were married is that the company he works for is large so for most events you can only bring someone if you are married. And now that we're engaged I thought it would be different in regards to that. But either way, I was really hurt by everything that happened and was really surprised when everything blew up the way it did, because I didn't see it coming. I spoke to him a little yesterday. He came home during the day so we could talk while the kids were at school. He apologized, and I forgive him, but I also told him that at this point I just need a little time to really clear my head before I make any life-changing decisions. I told him what I thought and how it was completely unacceptable. He says they will and understands that nothing he says will prove that, only time and actions. All I can do now really is wait to see. Thank you again everyone .
  6. Really I'm not sure. He invited me to a dinner with him and his colleges (which for the most part I can't go because of babysitter reasons, honestly I've never been to go in the 3 years he has been with the company) but today I could. As soon as I said I could he stumbled around and said he would have to call me back. When he did he said sorry he was mistaken, I was no longer invited. Each time it always is like this. I was hurt because a few months ago he said he was embarrassed of me. When we decided to get married he said things would be different, but there not. When he uninvited me my feelings were hurt. He then told me I wasn't understanding and he didn't want to marry someone like me. I'm crushed. I don't even know what to say. I'm embarrassed to tell the people close to me. Thank you so much for listening. We really do (as far as I knew) had a great relationship. I just don't know what to do now...I'm so hurt
  7. I don't even know what to write. We have an amazing relationship. We got into a small argument about his work(which he lied about), and he told me to give him his ring back. He said it more then once, so I had to. This is the one thing we said we would never do. I feel like I'm dying inside. I don't know what to do or where to turn. I'm sorry for posting such a negative post but I'm so lost right now. Our wedding is already planned and payed for. And I don't know where to go next. As silly as it sounds I don't even know who I am without him....Thanks for listening, and its not just as easy as walking away...we have kids. I didn't even know there was a problem. Any advice on how to deal would be great.TIA~~~
  8. I'm so glad i found this I am also a 32DD/DDD Any suggestions on a backless/strapless bra that minimizes? My dress is also strapless with a low back and everything I've tried really pushes me up. I would like to be a bit more conservative on my wedding day. While there is no hiding the fact that I'm busty, I don't think this is the place to really show my sex appeal LOL!!! Also a few of the bras I have tried kind of show through my mermaid gown, any suggestions? TIA~~~
  9. Welcome from one newbie to another! I am getting married at Breezes Runaway Bay. Not too far from Ocho Rios. Are you looking for a resort or just a wedding venue? Good Luck and Happy planning!!!
  10. Welcome! I'm also a Jamaican Bride, but different resort. Good Luck and happy planning

All those conversations that were held riding in a car or over a meal or during long walks - all those sentences that began with “When we’re married†and continued with “I will and you will and we willâ€- those late night talks that included “someday†and “somehow†and “maybeâ€- and all those promises that are unspoken matters of the heart. All these common things, and more, are the real process of a wedding. The symbolic vows that you are about to make are a way of saying to one another, “ You know all those things we’ve promised and hoped and dreamed- well, I meant it all, every word.†Look at one another and remember this moment in time. Before this moment you have been many things to one another- acquaintance, friend, companion, lover, dancing partner, and even teacher, for you have learned much from one another in these last few years. Now you shall say a few words that take you across a threshold of life, and things will never quite be the same between you. For after these vows, you shall say to the world, this- is my husband, this- is my wife. Wow this is amazing!!! I love this!!
  12. Ok well I'm really having a hard time planning this whole AHR thing We are paying for everything, so I need to keep the budget down. For those of you who planned smaller parties, how did you limit the guest list without hurting anyone's feelings? And when did you send out the invites if you had a delayed reception?
  13. Well I too am going to go against the norm here and say no it's not selfish. First and foremost this is the one and only time that it's about you and your FI. you should do what your heart desires. You could do something special before or after with him. I am a mom of 5 and I will not be taking our children with us. I'm like the OP, no one else is going except us, so I don't feel as though we will be excluding our kids. We will have a small ahr when we return. We are making them a big part of that, and really that's what my kids are most excited about anyway You can look at things from both sides and it will be whatever you make of it....positive or negative. Good Luck with your decision.

What you're wedding was like? For example, do you still walk up with the guy waiting with the minister or do you just walk up together What you do after since there is no reception? How much of the day does it take up? I just want to know EVERYTHING. I am getting married at the caves in negril with just us June 17th and am trying to find info about the caves wedding specifically but am not getting replies. I guess not that many caves brides..So anyone who is having or has had a just the two of you destination wedding would be awesome, ANY info. I know I can ask the wedding coordinator but would like info from other brides...And I am sure once I get there I will be asking myself why in the world I was so anxious. It is just so fun to talk about and I am so exited. Oh an I have talked to the wedding coordinator at Breezes and she explained a little to me. My fi will walk out with the minister. They will play music(I will bring my own) and I will walk to him. They said our wedding will take about 20 min. After we will go to a garden gazebo to sign our marriage license, have the wedding cake, share a few dances, ect. After we will spend some time with the photographer. To finish the evening we will have a private candlelight dinner. That's all I know so far, but info from other brides would be great Are you wearing a wedding dress and have you decided what your fi will wear? Also are you going barefoot or shoes? Well happy planning!!!
  16. I have the same questions as you ;-) It will just be fi and myself at our wedding too. We are getting married at Breezes Runaway Bay though. Well we should kit about how the planning is going! Good Luck!!!
