Any Eldorado Seaside Brides??

Recommended Posts

Thats so exciting!!! I can't believe how close your wedding date is now!!! YAY! So about your hair.. I found out about what I may do for mine on this forum.. someone suggested getting a hair trial done at your hometown and have them take pictures during the process so when you go to the resort you can show them the pictures and have them try and recreate it... I think thats what I will be doing... makes things a little less stressful if you have something to show them!

tracy s - GREAT idea about the hair.. I think I will work on that the next couple weeks... so what I can come up with...

 

yeah the dress fitting is in a couple hours and there is a FULL OUT BLIZZARD going on outside.. haha.. kinda funny...

 

when I got engaged in Sept, I started going to the gym.. I have gone from trying on size 12-14 wedding dresses to having my size 10 having to be taken in cause the laces meet... So I wish I could have put my dress fitting off a bit longer... or gotten a size 8.. but if that's all I have to complain about LIFE ain't that bad.. haha..

 

I feel like a 'dork' saying I have a personal trainer.. but after a 2004 car accident I have spent a crap load of money on massage and chiro... (neck & upper back injury) and since hitting the gym bearly a penny... best $$ I have ever spent and it's only twice a week for 25mins.. and watching my food...

Question to you ladies... how much did you spend on your dresses?? Mine is currently on sale.. I am inquiring as to how much on sale but I just wanted to ball park it and see what everyone else paid for theirs??.. Also are you guys doing A TTD session? If so did you use another dress?? I am thinking I want to find a cheaper dress to do this in, but I guess I am looking for opinions! Let me know! Thanks! :)

I bought mine online for $370 usd... i found it in the store, and bought it online because it was 600$ cheaper... Not doing a trash the dress because we don't have time after the wedding unfortunately we leave the next day.. lots of ladies seem to be passing on dresses for cheap though that would be great for a TTD if you want another. Have you looked online at the cost of yours?

I spent 540US for mine.. I found the dress in a store here in Canada.. and they wanted 1150 plus tax.. Yikes.. so I 'googled' it and found the exact same dress in the US at a bridal store going out of business NWT. I was VERY happy.

 

I would search used pages for a TTD. Check out Kijiji in Calgary and you can get something for $100 I'm sure.. so wade around in the ocean in.. haha.. good luck

    • 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?
