    Rachael,
    I love your dress and the designer. I am looking at the site and getting ispirations!! I did make an appt for Friday at Alfred Angelo but I think that may be pointless because I wasn't drawn to any dresses on the site. I am just going to get ideas. I think I may have an ANJOLIQUE gown though!!

    I LOVE BEST DESTINATION WEDDING!!!!!

      Thanks!! Keep your appointment and just have fun trying on as many as you can...I went to 5 stores and tried on probably 75 dresses before I found "the one", and you WILL know when you try the right one on!! They always look so different on the rack and in pictures so just keep an open mind and have fun!! Good Luck!!

        Hey CACHET,

        I would go ahead and keep your appt and just try on as many dresses as you can. You can always figure out what kind of styles you like and then order the dress a few months later. And if you find one you really like... get the measurements for a size smaller as motivation.

        I ended up finding my dress (and ordering it) when I was in Texas for my high school reunion in July. I had a few appts in Austin and then anytime we drove by a bridal store we would pop in to see what they had. I of course found a dress I loved in all of the stores ; ) But at the end it came down to two very similar styles with very different price tags. I ordered the less expensive one because I knew I could get it altered to look more like the more expensive one. And it was also hard to justify spending $1,750 more on the more expensive dress when they were so similar.

        Sorry this was so long...

At least go try some on, and if you find the one you love but are afraid to order a certain size because you might lose weight, wait a few months before ordering it (or as long as you can). Some designers take longer to order than others so at least if you know what dress you want, you know how long it will take to order. Mine is a Mikaella and they said it would take about 4 months to come in (quicker than I thought!)

            Here's a pic of me in the dress with my mom:

              Ok, I went out Friday to try dresses on. I tried about 15 dresses on and narrowed it down to two. I had my mom take pictures of every dress I tried on. Can you believe she deleted all the pics except for the two I liked. She didn't even get the full dress in the pics. The dresses I like were part of a trunk sale so my daughters and I went back out Sunday and tried the dresses back on and took good pictures.

                Heather,
                Nice dress! Did you get your bridesmaids dresses yet? How in the world did you get so many people booked already? When did you send out the STDs?

                  Hi Ladies,

                  I am getting married Oct 8,2009. So far I have bought my dress, made our wedding website, booked our location (Riu Palace, Los Cabos) for ceremony & reception, and picked my colours (fuchsia & turquoise). Right now I am in the middle of creating my invitations & narrowing down the photographers. What's the next step?

                  Thanks!

                    We sent out our STD's in July via email. We really wanted to give everyone as much notice as possible so they would have time to save.

                    Haven't found the bridesmaid dresses yet, and I might wait until closer to spring when all the spring/summer stuff comes out again.

                    Looks like I'm JUST going to miss you! We're staying at the Riu Palace too but we arrive on Oct 19 09.

                    I would say your next steps are browsing through centerpieces and trying on wedding gowns!

                      So, are you going to post the pics for us?!
