so confused...

Recommended Posts

I'm so lost at the moment. I went dress shopping in MN just before we moved to AZ, and found the dress of my dreams. I had planned on flying back to get measured and for my alterations.

 

However, now that I've started my job, things are more unpredicatable than I thought, so flying home to do all this seems like it would be pretty tough.

 

So I figured I'd order my dress here and do alterations here. However, not being from here and not knowing many people here I was unsure of where to go. So I start googling my brains out. First problem that I run into is that I cannot find a bridal store that carries the line of dress (Watters) and that has the specific dress I want. I figure I can solve this by getting measured here and ordering the dress from Macy's in MN and then do my alterations here.

 

Enter second problem. In my googling searches I have found nothing but horrid reviews of the bridal salons here and their service and altering abilities.

 

So what now? This is probably one of the most important details of the wedding - THE DRESS! And the dress I want is a lace overlay and I'd assume that would be harder to alter.... anyway. I'm so lost.

 

Does anyone live in Phoenix, scottsdale, tucson, anywhere near here that can recommend a place?

 

I feel like if I want to make sure all goes well I'm going to have to fly back and forth..... which would be hard to coordinate with my ever changing work schedule, not to mention spendy..... what do I do?!!! Ugh...

Dang! Hopefully some of the local girls can recommend somebody. Sometimes the best people are in the small shops without websites, it sounds scary but check the yellow pages for that.

 

I once had a prom dress made by a woman who worked out of her home, and I heard about her from a friend who used her for quinceneara dresses. She showed me an album of her work, wedding dresses and all, and she was excellent. Maybe ask co-workers if they know of seamstresses too.

 

Good luck!!!

I live by MN but I know that doesn't really help you right now! I know in my town some of the bridal stores give you a list of seamstresses they would recommend for alterations - maybe you go to one of the bridal stores and try that??

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
