It is acutally a Bari Jay bridesmaid dress in ivory....it looks TOTALLY different on my than of the picture online..I will try and post a picture this weekend. I am glad I bought a new one. I would have been too hot in the other one that I still totally love!

Did you have to get a new one? You are about a month out, does yours still fit?

i'm changing mine too, but im actually doing it myself, there is a wide, contrasting band of champagne fabric at the top, im going to cinch it and stitch it in place creating the illusion of a sweetheart without actually changing the structure of the dress, but still adding the cleavage effect as well as making it not a straight across, high band.

 

no pics yet, tho i'll post when i do it!

You're so lucky you were able to get a new one!!

I wish I could have bought a new one too, but it was too late to return it.

I tried it on last week and it did not zip. So I'm meeting with the seamstress tomorrow to see what she can do. The girls in the boutique said that she can add some material and do a corset back instead of the zipper it currently has. I'm sure the alterations are going to cost at least $400-$500. But, I'm determined to wear it. fryingpan.gif

I know I'm going to be burning up too, so I'm going to look for a second reception dress this weekend to change into to.

Can't wait to see pics!!!

A friend of mine is getting married in 2 weeks and she had her zipper taken out and replaced with a lace up corset...it didn't cost her too much. I am sure things are way more expensive in Dallas than in Corpus though! Good luck! I bet you will be much more comfortable anyhow!

    • 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?
