i am a street size 8 and the davinci bridal dress is a bridal 14, but i needed it altered down. the 12 was slightly tight in the hips so she ordered it one size up for me just in case i wasnt able to lose enough weight.

i like the longer one too, i think its "younger" looking and more "me" if ya KWIM. just gotta figure out how to keep my boobies in it though! haha. i ordered the jcrew dress in a 12, only because jcrew stuff seems to run a little small and typically when i buy pants there, they have to be a 10. i ordered a dress there awhile back that was an 8 and it was too tight for my comfort, so i figure by ordering a 12 ill be safe and will need to have it altered for length anyway since im 5'2". the problem for me is that i would order the petite since those are for people under 5'4", but the hips would be too tight because i have stupid wide hips. smile105.gif

i freakin hate this! i'm short too (5'3") and i firmly believe that just because you need a shorter, more proportionate length, it does NOT mean you are a tiny person all over. so freaking frustrating! i am constantly having to hem things. grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

oh i know. i have to have EVERYTHING hemmed, even my freakin jeans. i automatically tack $15 on the price of everything i buy that would require alterations, and if i think $15 extra isnt worth it, i dont buy whatever it is.

too bad you dont live closer to teach me how to do it. i've been contemplating buying a sewing machine recently, but i have no time really to learn how to do it, and nobody to teach me.

$10-15 depending on what it is. i generally go to a dry cleaner because i dont know any seamstresses that are close by where i live.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
