Can't Find .. The One!!

Recommended Posts

I am growing ever-more frusterating with my wedding gown search!! I have tried on so many dresses; every style from ballgown to mermaid to sheath to A-line and all in between... I cannot find anything that I am 'in love' with!

 

Everyone talks about finding 'the one' but I am concerned that I will never find it!!

 

I have tried on things that were okay; they would work, but nothing felt perfect.

 

Now I am considering going the non-traditional route to see if I can find something I like that is maybe classified as an evening gown or something...

I wouldn't mind doing color.. but FMIL keeps saying that her son should get a bride in white. (This is my 2nd marraige and I think that bothers her!) Fh really doesn't care what color I wear.

 

I found this dress online and want to go try it on; I am almost afraid that I will love it and then FMIL will freak.

So, I guess I am just freaking out a bit .. Thanks for listening girls!!!

I ended up buying a dress that "would work" and had the same feeling - I wanted something I would love. So...I took it to a seamstress along with an inspiration picture (of a dress that was way out of my price range) and we are changing it up! She says doing this is almost half of her business. I am adding lace and changing the straps, etc.

 

What I did like about the one I bought (the cut, the back, and the basic style) was enough to turn it into my dream dress :) If you have an idea of what you like or a "dream" dress picture, get a dress that is similar in fit, shape, style and have it altered. My dress plus all the alterations are only $500 total. Now I love, love, love it!

That dress is really pretty! I love it! I looked at all kinds of boutiques in Houston for "the dress" and I ended up buying mine for $400 at David's Bridal. It's perfect. Here is the style number if you want to take a look. Style 9T9389.

Screw what the FMIL thinks this is your wedding and if that is the dress then that is the dress...just an FYI there are a few brands that have that or a similar style in white (Morgan & Co., OC by Oleg Cassini, Niteline, Adrianna Papell Evenings, Nightway, Niki, and Faviana) Hope this helps

    • 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.
    • 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?
