Maggie, I got it from Venus.com.  It was only $30!  I just couldn't bring myself to spend even another $100 on a different dress, and I certainly didn't want to wear my actual wedding dress.  It's satin and I would be afraid it'd get ruined.

Tisha, Beautiful invites... And you will look HOT in that TTD! 

Carolina emailed me, and I can cancel the photog that I had booked without any penalty!  Did Maria Angela ever get back to you?

Your daughter is so pretty. The dress look pretty too but it is definitely big on her. How much is it for alteration? It might be worth it.

And the Invitations look awesome!

Trish,

My bouquet is $200 (see the picture below) and bridesmaids bouquets are $60 each. Mine has orchids but not in the bridesmaids bouquets... it's going to be all roses so it can be cheaper :)

Yay, I can't even tell you how excited I am to hear this.  So, I guess if we can get Chapa onboard, we will all have beautiful pics for a phenomenal price!!!  Maria Angela is just waiting to hear back from us on what we are going to do.  She said if she has any requests for her services during our week, she will give me a heads up!

Thanks Chong.  I'm not sure on how much the alterations will be, so I can't decide.  I found a dress at Kohls that I can get pretty cheap, and they are cute too.  Different color though, hot pink.  So, I gotta decide!!!!!!!  AGHHHHH.....  I know for the other dresses, I can send the lady their measurements and have them specially made.  I should have done that for the first one but didn't realize I could.  :(

I think I got a Medium, and it's good.  I probably could have gotten a small but I don't like for it to be too clingy.  I suppose I better get over that, at least for the photo session.  :o)

It so weird how sometimes you get inspired all of the sudden out of no where to figure out a task for the wedding. Last night I was playing around on Itunes and all of the sudden i was inspired to figure out the processional and what I am walking down the aisle to. I already knew what I wanted to walk down with my brother to so I just needed a song for the seating of the parents since we don't have a bridal party. Ended up in the bagpipe music (Weird I know) I found a really short version of Scotland the Brave by the NYFD Pipe and drum core. Since my step dad is primarily Scottish and a professional firefighter and in my little girl wedding of my dreams there was always going to be bagpipes. I listen to that then segued into my song with my brother and it just seemed perfect.

Are bagpipes too weird for mexico wedding. I swear I wasn't drinking LOL

 

Sorry just had to share and get thoughts since you ladies understand better than anyone

    • Sorry you had to deal with this I hoped it worked out. It seems to be every few months a new store will be in the  'if' stage and to the 'when' stage.  Big businesses like this don't notify the employees or customers before they close down...that would cause even more losses.  One day there are signs on the door and the business is done.  And lots of people (employees and customers...not to mention the creditors that they owe millions to) get screwed immediately with little help to be found anywhere.  Look at alfred angelo, although they had less retail stores than David's Bridal, they may have had more sales than them as a company.  They were the largest manufacturer of dresses and were carried by thousands of independent stores across the world (not just the 60+ branded stores they had).  If you google search Davids Bridal going bankrupt, they are listed on all the sites that post retail stores on life support.  They have more debt than they will be able to service in 2019 and the only question right now is if they'll make it that far.  Once the debt comes due, it's almost a 100% certainty that the company will be done.  But it's also more probable than not that the bankruptcy will happen much sooner than that.  The argument about them getting a new line or how big they are isn't a good argument if you look at the history of how these normally happen.  Alfred Angelo had a brand new line of dresses that never even hit the stores but were made overseas already...those all made their first appearances at the liquidation auctions.  I'm not trying to scare anyone here, but just trying to make sure that people understand that when a company gets to this point, it's definitely a roll of the dice if you are ordering something that you can't take home today.  How much of a risk?  That's hard to say, but I am extremely confident that the pain felt when alfred angelo closed 61 stores will be even greater when Davids Bridal closes 300+ stores…and when there are other great discount dress stores out there like Bridepower or Vows Bridal Outlet on the East Coast or Brilliant Bridal in the West (and plenty of others as well), I don’t think I would personally recommend any of my friends to take that risk!  But that’s just me:)
    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
