So I finally picked a dress... and sent all the others back (online orders).. and 2 weeks later, with 2 weeks to go, it doesn't fit me! It did, now it doesn't. Everyone loses weight before the wedding, how do I gain 8 pounds in 2 weeks! And I know my body, I won't be losing it.... I've got 8 years in the military, I know my body and how it works- so please no phoo-phooing it, trust me when I say it won't be gone.

Where can I get a dress with 2 weeks notice? I'm slightly pear-shaped, very simple taste and hate satin with a passion. Can anyone give any advice?? Oh geez....

You poor thing! Most bridal shops sell their dresses off the rack - and usually you get a discount for buying them off the rack - I am sure you will be able to find one with no problem - good luck!

Try calling around to bridal stores, they often have sample sales (aka off the rack). You may need to get it cleaned but its worth a shot!

Find a nice salon and tell them the deal. Hopefully they will have off the rack stuff for you. David's Bridal will be a great place to start because they have a lot in stock.

Is it possible to get it altered? I bought my dress at a sample sale and its a size 10. I'm a size 4! The seamstress did a wonderful job!

 

Also, you can consider a bustier to give you more padding. Just don't make it a tightening one. One of my bridesmaids is thinking of doing that since her strapless became loose in lieu of taking it in.

 

Good Luck!

E-bay has a ton of dresses... they may have one like the one you had! You can select to buy it now and have it a day! Good luck, hang in there! All things happen for reasons... maybe you'll love your new dress even more:)

    • 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?
