    Oh sorry! I was just making a joke. I am hoping that I don't lose any more weight. I can't afford at have extra alterations done to my dress. Fingers crossed that I can maintain over the next few months! :)

    Thanks for the info though!

      Here is mine! I am got it in the diamond white. I have over $200 in alterations being done including a sweetheart neckline being added.

      Allure : Style 8526 From AllureBridals.com
      NCDaisy -- absolutely STUNNING!!! So pretty and classic! Mine is from the Alfred Angelo Sapphire Collection and seems to be the only one not on their website. We are legally getting married in Houston first, so here is my justice of the peace/rehearsal dinner dress: KRISTA Hoping I'll be able to wear this every anniversary and for other special occasions too... Are you doing a TTD? I love my dress too much to potentially ruin it! The words trash and dress just don't belong together in my mind! But the photos are always so fun... if we decide to add that, I'd probably look on ebay for another one...

      Question -- is anyone getting married at the beach location instead of the gazebo? I was planning to do the beach location and am looking for flats that won't sink into the sand... do you think wedges will work?

        Oh my gosh! I LOVE that dress!! Reminds me of a BCBG dress that I have. I have been pouring over the net for weeks to find a white dress to wear after the ceremony. Can't find anything I like!! I am loving the Madge dress but there are no stores near me. Booooo!

        I am not doing a trash the dress session. I may do some thing like a bridal portrait when I get back. I have a photographer here that I use. She's super cheap. Maybe I will roll around in the grass or something, but I am not talking it in the ocean!! Yikes!

        I am getting married on the beach...barefoot! I will have shoes to put on for pictures and after the ceremony.

            LOVE IT!! And what a steal!! Are you doing a reception at home, or somewhere at the resort? Are you thinking about blue shoes or something else? What is everyone doing for their something blue?

            So I've heard from Yamina that renting a sound system costs $500 - seems really steep to me, especially because we aren't having dancing or a DJ... I just want a little background noise during the dinner. So I am thinking of bringing down ipod speakers or a little boom box stereo thing, and just plugging it in at the restaurant... thoughts? Suggestions?

              I know thank goodness I bought it Saturday. I just checked their site again and they sold out! Wow!

              Not sure what I will wear for my something blue yet. I love the shoe idea but I am changing into the short dress after the ceremony and I think I would look silly with a white cocktail dress and blue satin pumps? I don't really want to buy two pairs. So I was thinking since my ceremony is on the beach I may do blue flip flops?

              I am not having a reception at Playa. I am just doing a cocktail hour, and then we will just go party it up at one of the clubs! I am doing a small reception for family when we return.

              I have heard of a lot of people bringing an iPod. Sounds like a good money saver. You should just make your playlist upload it and hit play. I doubt people will care that you don't have a dj or whatever. You are in MEXICO for goodness sake! It's going to be amazing! Yay!!

                Is anyone worried about the quality of the beach. I have read over 100 reviews on Trip Advisor and it is starting to scare me a bit.

                    The beach is usually gone over with a tractor twice a day to remove any seaweed. The seaweed is really dependant on the weather and the tide if it stirs up enough to bring it ashore. The only issue I found with the beach is that it can be a little windy, so if you are wearing a veil you might have a bit of an issue. Personally, I am using the gazebo as I find it so romantic with the fountains and such plus my guests will have head cover if it gets extremely hot.

                      Thanks Snickers! I have read that they did clean it a lot too. I am getting married on the tail end of October so hopefully it won't be too hot. Have you been there a lot? What does the water look like? Is it super blue?

                      I probably have just read too many reviews on TripAdvisor.com I am second guessing myself. I do it all the time. With my dress, my groom...haha JUST KIDDING BABE <3 <3

                      I am not a huge beach fan anyway. Sand gets everywhere and creepy crawly things in the water that you can't see. So you will prob. find me poolside! I was just worried about the pictures I guess. Nothing photoshop can't fix!! :)
