OMG I think I found "the one" - my dress! Picture Heavy...Opinions Please!

Recommended Posts

Hmmmm, I think your hair should be UP and you should wear a veil! The pic of you with your hair up, you just look so beautiful and like a bride! And a veil cuz I originally didn't want one, but felt so much more "real" with one. When else can you wear a veil??


I am not really crazy about the veil that you were wearing though, is that for sure the one you want? I think it it ending at the same spot where all the detail is in the dress (mid-chestal area), it just wasn't the best length...


I love the pic that I included below of you, with your hair up, you look like a bride, and you can def see definition in your waist.


Will you be getting this dress fitted at all? Perhaps if you are, that might hlep whatever your mom thinks is boxy aobut it. Although, have to say again, I disagree with her.

Thoughts? :)

I am so sorry your mom disagreed with you. Not very tactfully either. Kinda sounds like my mom. I think that dress is super flattering and not sure where she sees "boxy" at all.

I don't want to look like any of the words she used to describe it. I'm so bummed out right now...

Here it is close up from the front, hair up and no veil

Thanks for your opinion on my wedding look Carly, my mom really has me second guessing myself, I'm pretty disapointed by it all. In that pic you posted, I feel like I look like a bride there too and that it is really flattering in that particular pic. I can try a few more to satisfy her curiosity but I don't know what else to say to her. I'm pretty hurt that she doesn't think I look as good as I think I do. I'm currently trying to convince her to come down this saturday to see the dress in person, maybe that will help her. I am definitely having some alterations made if I get this one, the bust needs to be altered a bit as it's too loose, etc.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
