Azul Sensatori Brides - POST HERE!
Posted 05 August 2009 - 07:13 AM
I ended up getting a dress that suites my body type (I am curvy too) and my step mother chimed in with the same opinion as your mum did too.
I would post the pic of the dress on here for you but for some reason I can't; It is a Maggie Sottero dress and it is called Grace if you wanted to check it out on her website.
I have learned that you are not going to please everyone when you are getting married because they all have different opinions then you do so if you want to be happy on your wedding day with the way that things turn out then you just need to stop asking people (FI included) what they think of different ideas and just get what you think will look nice.

Katie - Re: the dress. I think if you feel comfortable in it then you should get it. I wouldn't take too much offence to the comment from your mom because she's probably just thinking about your well being. She probably just doesn't want you to choose something that you're going to be dying in because she wants you to enjoy your day! If she really starts pushing it then that's a different story, lol. Hopefully she only brought it up as something for you to "consider" in your decision making process. Let us know what you decide! We'll support you!!

I was just in this EXACT same position... the dress I posted on here that I bought I emailed to my mom and my bridesmaids and all the bridesmaids loved it, my mom said it wasn't appropriate for a beach wedding, even though I'll be on the sky deck. That's what prompted my frantic thread asking if it was an appropriate dress or not.
I told her to save her judgements for Sunday when I tried it on for her and all my bridesmaids. When I came out, they all gasped and I turned around and saw her nodding and looked at me and I said, "this is my dress isn't it?" They all said, yes, OMG, that is SO your dress.
Moral of the story... go with your heart, it's hard to see a dress on a stranger and convince others it's your dress sometimes, when they see it in person it's different.

Wear whatever dress you feel like a princess in. Its your day! Just because you are having a destination wedding doesn't mean you have to wear a "destination dress". Also, ask the store you buy your dress from for packing tips. They will know the best way to pack the dress; they might even pack it for you if your bring in a suit case or carry on.

2 Large hanging corsages- $60.00 usd each= $120.00 usd
2 sheers one white and one turquoise- for both $150.00 usd
I'm thinking by the time I find my own, bring them down and pay for the set up, I might be close to the $150 anyway. I'm going to need more than 12 chairs, too, so there's another $150 probably!

So, my TA got back to me and for purple and white large hanging corsages (without dictating the actual flower), I'm back to $60 and $33 for the small ones.
At this late in the game I think I am going to bite the bullet and just pay for the 'bed sheets.'
Katie -I can't wear tradition DW style dresses either.... I went for a dress that suited my body type the best, therefore making ME feel beautiful! That is the point- its your day, and the photos will be with you for the rest of your life and you want to love them!
My dress has a crazy train -but who cares! I thought I'd include a pic for fun.
Speaking of my dress -it hasn't arrived yet... I ordered it in Dec! The size we ordered is definitely going to be too big and I am reworking a huge amount of it (note the ribbons tossed on in the pic) and am starting to panic. Just a bit...
We leave a month today!!!!!!!!!!!
