first dress fitting

Recommended Posts

well i went on my very first fitting today [at davids bridal]- and i'm thinking it was a good idea to start 1.5 years before the wedding... i didn't have much luck. there were 2 that stood out as my favorites and i'll see if i can figure out how to include pics in this post.

 

the pictures are pretty terrible, and you can see that i was not really focusing on having them taken anyway. a flash may have helped, but oh well- we still have LOTS of dress shopping to do.

 

i'm also still trying to decide if i'm going to wear shoes, flip flops, wedge flip flops, or barefoot sandals... ahhh smile41.gif

my family liked dress #1 the best, but i'm a little hesitant about the bow on the front- does it make it look a little silly? i can't decide how i feel about it quite yet. i will also post the davids bridal links so you can see some quality pics of the gowns.

I like dress #1 and I think the bow looks fine, but you have plenty of time to keep dress shopping. Trust me, you will KNOW when it's the right dress!

I agree with Tami, you will totally know when you find the right dress. I actually went by myself cause I got sick of feeling pressured to buy one my sisters liked.

I will with hold my 2 cents on which dress I like ( #1)

I like dress #1 as well, but I also agree that you'll know when you find your dress.

 

I started dress shopping really early as well, the only problem was that once I finally found mine, I had to force myself NOT too look at other dresses so I wouldn't fall in love with any others!

I love dress #2! I almost got that dress and have had several monents when I wish I had gotten that dress. It is a very flattering dress, and in my opinion it looks much more expensive than it is. I was impressed by the quality of that one for the price.

    • 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.
