Dress Dilemna--Help

Recommended Posts

Wow, I just got off the phone with a different store (chrissy O, thx Sharon for the suggestion ) that is an authorized Maggie Sottero retailer and she quoted me $658 for the dress!!!!cheer2.gif

That is much better than $850! On top of that, she asked me how tall I was and recommended that I order the petite size so I dont need to get it hemmed...and I get a free veil! Woohoo.....thx ladies!!

Well the saga continues....I called the original bridal shop that was charging me the $850 (with "free alterations") and asked if they can match the price....the owner said she will match the price of $656 but obviously that does not include alterations...Now I'm wondering (fron reading other threads about alterations) if I should just pay the $850 bc it includes the alterations and as we all know alterations can be costly. LOL....it never ends. I just want to order my dress already!

I say you go with the cheaper dress. You are getting the petite size, so that should help with the alterations. Also, there is a good possiblity that you can get it alter cheaper someone else.

Hi Jess! I don't know how I"ve missed this thread. I'm so glad you're finding cheaper prices!

 

Just a thought - call RK Bridal here in the city. They say they will beat any price quote (you may have to document it), and they will cap the cost of your alterations. I think mine were capped at $250 or $300. And I've got a lace hem that is going to have to be taken off and added back after they shorten it.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
