bridesmaid dresses

Recommended Posts

for the RIU brides that have already gotten married... what advice do you have on the type of material for the bridesmaid dresses?? i was thinking chiffon and/ or a satin blend would be better.... also what would you suggest for the wedding gown.... i will need two bc im having a reception in my home town a week after we get back from Jamaica.

welcome3.gifwelcome to the forum!!

 

it really depends on your preference...of course jamaica's climate is very warm so chiffon would be a nice airy material...but bump that!!! lol my dress and my bridesmaid dresses are all a satin material. I got what I liked!! it's your day!! you wear whatever dress gives you butterflies in your stomach whether satin of silk!! and you make them wear whatever makes them look pretty...just not prettier than you!! lol...if it's satin, they can deal with it, it's only one day! welcome again..and congrats!!!

My bridesmaids are wearing satin. I wanted chiffon for them, but it is not flattering on all shapes. I went with a satin dress with chiffon over it. I am also having a reception back home. So instead of two dresses. . I am just taking my wedding dress off after the ceremony before dinner and putting a nice white dress on so I ca nwear the same wedding dress again and save myself $1000 dollars

My bridesmaids wore a chiffon-y type and they were very comfortable, but I second the opinion that you should go with whatever you LIKE! It's your day, and anything goes!

We are also having a reception at home but I'm just going to wear the same dress! I love it, I'm just getting it drycleaned.. you could always go that route, but if you want two dresses, go for it!

My bridesmaids also so wore a lightweight chiffon type dress. Pick what you like though - it's your day. There is a very nice breeze off the ocean in the afternoon at the Riu so if you're getting married on the beach it'll be nice!

    • 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?
