I have a "friend"..I put that in quotes because I'm beginning to see that she has issues of her own and may not be the best person to listen to. Well, in my excitement yesterday, I sent the pics to her FIRST via email....you know what she told me? I mean..this is my VERY FIRST FEEDBACK about the wedding gown that I searched high and low for, and have been so thrilled about. She tells me...."Well, I think it will look great once you have the right UNDERGARMENTS ON."!!! Seriously. I spent about an hour trying to dissect that sentence and see if I was just not taking it in the right way, or being oversensitive. Then I spent a half hour looking at the pics and trying to figure out if I looked gross and just didn't know it. All because someone whose opinion I value(d) was basically a bitch to me.

I talked to FH, and wise man that he is, he pointed out that this person never had a "real" wedding, that she tends to seek attention in inappropriate ways (yea, she's one of those...I'll go ahead and say it..HOOCHIE) AND that her marriage hasn't exactly been anything to write home about. She is constantly saying things like "Thats why I didn't have a wedding." or "This is the reason I'm glad we kept it simple" everytime I would mention a particular obstacle in regard to my planning. I finally just told her a few weeks ago "Well, everytime I complain or worry, I'm still loving it...thats what brides do. We bitch and moan because we can but under it all, it's the coolest experience in the world and I'll be sad when AHR is over because that means the end of all my planning!"

She hasn't said much about it since.

ANYway, I am usually the most body image accepting person I know...I honestly don't get upset over not being a size 2 and never have....she just knocked my confidence for a loop being Negative Nelly with me. So I really do thank you girls so much for helping me counteract her bullshit impact on my feelings about my dress.
I can totally see why her comment got you thinking, I'da done the same thing while cursing her under my breathe rant.gif and wishing evils thoughts on her, lol. voodoo.gif But DO NOT for one second let her nonsense comment keep you from seeing how beautiful your dress is and how it suits you so perfectly! Your FI is gonna be so ridiculously excited when he sees you in that dress cheesy.gif

And your honey is right, her lack of a proper wedding celebration and her lackluster marriage is probably what fueled her inappropriate and unwarranted comment. Like all the other girls have said.....YOU LOOK FABULOUS IN THAT DRESS!!!! cheers.gif

Now send that biatch over to So Cal so I can knock some sense into her fryingpan.gif

I think I see what you're saying.

No duty tax or anything...with the shipping, the total came to 204GBP. LUCKILY, she took PayPal, and Paypal actually converts the currencies for you. The dress itself was 149GBP and 55GBP shipping. My total US was $369.67US with the conversion rate that day. The gown retails for between $1300-1399.

Thanks everyone for all of your kind words...it's made me feel so good reading your responses, and I am now confident I made the right choice and can "pull it off" nicely. I'll definitelly post the before/after pics..sending it to the seamstress tomorrow, and she said she should be able to finish it befor the holidays start!

You look very pretty in the dress. You look so nice that I didn't even notice your hair or the fact that you were holding the dress in the back. My eyes went straight to your dress. Girl you are wearing it, even if it's not laced up all the way. Your friend is indeed a hater. Don't you just hate those kinds? You don't even need to get the altering at the neckline. It looks great!!

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
