LOL Abbie. We had this same problem but it sounds like you guys are nicer. We are just doing a BBQ in the backyard. We talked about making it bigger but I didn't want to fork out more money just to appease them. Steve still wants bigger but I finally convinced him to the dark side. Muhahaha.

ok, my mom is buying it for me, she is gonna order 2 sizes since it's not avail in stores to try on. i'll take pics and post when it comes in, even if i dont like it! ooh, pus by getting 2, it is over $50, so free shipping! that's a sneaky way to get free shipping, i just realized, buy more than you need then return unwanted to store. like a rebate!

 

what i really like about it, is i adored the cut of maura's 1st civil ceremony dress, but didnt want to spend the $, plus i never got the lace dress i originally loved, so i think the cut of this is similar to (not perfect but it reminds me of it) maura's 1st civil dress, plus so much cheaper! woohoo!

Yes, I totally did the costume change! It was a halter knee length white sundress and it saved the night!

 

I changed after the fire dancers. It was humid, my legs were stuck together with sweat, the dress was heavy, and my boobs kept wanting say hello so I said screw this where's my sundress! (btw to any of you with big bazooms, try sitting and dancing in your dress at the bridal salon & see how your dress reacts to both...anything stays put when you just stand there but at your wedding things will shift so make sure it's secure!)

 

After the change I was a brand new woman and was really able to boogie down, I 100% recommend a 2nd dress!

Our fire dancers were like the very last thing! I thought they weren't going to show for a long time. But I agree- it's so much freer to be in a shorter dress.

Okay - at first, my reaction was no - but in your case Abbie - I say go for it! BFW - cracked me up!

 

Fortunately my dress is short - so I don't have to worry about lugging around a big ol heavy dress! Anyhow - I say wear that new dress and rock it girl!

    • 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.
