Need opinions...

Recommended Posts

I don't know how to do a poll, or I'd make this one...

 

We are doing a TTD :) I just booked a photog for it. I'm torn because I want to wear my actual dress for it. Here are the issues....a)the dress cost quite a bit of money, B) grandma bought the dress as my wedding gift, c) We are having an AHR and I have to wear my dress again, so grandma can see me in it (she's over 90 and not going to Mexico).

 

I know a lot of brides say their dress comes out cleaner, but I don't know if it's the same fabric &/or beadwork.

 

Tell me what you think? Wil the sand/saltwater stain it and/or ruin the beadwork?

 

Here's a link to my dress.

First of all your gown is gorgeous!!!! Secondly even though I am doing our TTD in my dress I am not wearing it again. I guess because your grandmother bought it and you are wearing it for your AHR where she will be I would go with wearing a different dress for the TTD just to be on the safe side. IF you are too worried about it you may not do what you want for the TTD (like roll around in sand or get crazy in the water, etc). JMHO

That's what I'm concerned about, I don't know if it'll stain

Screw the models. They need to eat more. :)

 

I'm sure you look beautiful. I'd just google water affects on satin.

 

BUTTTTTT- you could always do a TTD around the town and stay completely away from water. Those are my FAV pics actually- someone just posted some recently. Look in the PV section. They are gorgeous! Plus you dress will be so dirty just from the wedding/reception so who cares if it gets a tad more dirty around town.

    • 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?
