Im a second dress bride - was thinking about being a 3rd dress bride. I just realized (Im sure FI has already) that I am hard to please.. so I just give up. I think, really... 30 years from now will I absolutely care? Will I still be on BDW posting threads about it. Probably not. July is coming soon so I might as well relax and plan to have fun.

I'm a 2 dress bride...

Ok, Ok... 3!! :X

But the 3rd ended up being THE ONE!!!


The first cost sooo much money. When it came in, it looked nothing like when I had tried it on 7 months earlier. I blame trying on the sample which was 3 sizes too big and them pinning it to me to create a shape similar to what it would look like in my size. The outcome in my size bummed me out very much, both emotionally and financially!


The second was the "backup" (my rebound lol) to the first after I freaked out. Very pretty and super cheap even after alterations. However, I still didn’t get the "feeling" (and at this point I wondered if the “feeling” even existed or if I was just being a douche). Many girls on BDW were partial to the first too. I'm keeping it, but dying it another color, because it would be fab for a formal party :)


The third no one has seen (not even mom!) and I am IN LOVE. I feel so beautiful in it and can’t stop smiling when I think of it!!


So basically, the doubtful feeling will not go away if you are not 100% happy.

If your budget allows, I am all for getting something you will absolutely love!

Just make sure the second is THE ONE...or else you'll be like me!

I never thought I'd be a 2 dress bride, but I was! I bought my first dress right after I got engaged and 9 months later decided I didn't like it all that much anymore. It's your day, do what makes you happy!

    • 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.
