Mwise,

I'm having my girls wear wrap dresses from an ETSY seller  (http://www.etsy.com/shop/CoralieBeatrix). We haven't had our wedding yet but I have seen all my girls try on their dresses. They can be difficult to do on your own, but we are all getting ready together so we'll have plenty of hands! This seller was super nice, reasonable and accommodating. She says her dresses are basically one size fits all but I have 3 bridesmaids that are petite, so they sent their measurments in and she made the dresses to their size for no charge. The girls were able to order a bandeau top in the matching fabric for extra support/more coverage. So girls are going sans bra and you can't tell, while others got a backless strapless bra (VS sells some). There are like a zillion sellers on ETSY, but I'm partial to the one I used. A word of advice would be to do what I did. I went and ordered a bunch of swatches from various sellers on ETSY and picked the one I liked the best color and texture wise in person, and I am VERY happy!

I can't find a pic of it but here is one off her website. We got the pistaschio green dress.

BusyBee,

 

I like the short dress better.  I think it is more appropriate for a destination and looks fun and flirty.  I also really like the color and style of that dress.  Where is it from?  I'm still trying to decide what my BM's will wear.

I still love the other dress, but I'm wondering if a long dress will be more elegant.  Then again, perhaps a short dress is more appropriate for the beach!  I would be ordering the dresses in coral, irregardless of which one I pick.  To make things more difficult, they're only $10 different in terms of price! Help! Please let me know what you think!!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
