So, I found the dress I want. The only problem is that it doesn't fit with the bright blue bridesmaid dresses I was planning on getting.


Jessica McClintock - STYLE NO. - 52466 JEANETTE


The rose colored sash is a lot more muted than the pool or aruba blue color that I wanted for the girls. The original colors we were going to have were a bright pink, bright blue, and a champagne color. The dress I was thinking of for them is below.

Does anyone have a suggestion for a bridesmaid dresses that would look nice but not overpowering compared to mine? Or do you think I should scrap my dress and look for a new one?</html>

I love your dress! And if I were you, I would try make the BM dresses work around your dress--not the other way around (though it is very nice of you to do so!). I'm not very good with colors, but it seems like a pale blue/pool might look nice for the BMs.

I would probably order the dress and see how you feel about it when it comes in. For that price you can easily re-sell or use as a TTD if you aren't 100% sure of it. Having the dress in hand will make it easier to select a BM dress. YOu can also see if there is any way to alter the waist/change the color ribbon. By getting such a great deal, you can afford to splurge on alterations.


If that really is a rose color, I think you will need to select a more muted hue than pool/aruba. I used "tropic" for my rehearsal dress and it is really bright and really blue!


Good luck!

The sash matches the silk in the top underneath the lace. Do you think it would look weird to have the silk underneath be a different color from the ruching and the lace?

P.S. I bought the dress. I got it at an additional 10% off, because the bottom of the back of the one dress left in my size is slightly dirty. I figure that if I find bridesmaid dresses that I like, I'll dry clean it. Otherwise, it's my TTD dress. Thank you everyone for your help, by the way. It helped me realize that I HAD to get the dress. I'm not sure if it'll let you see the link below (I have it protected so my fiance can't view it on Facebook), but this is me in the dress at the store. This one is a size too big, so I'm trying to gather it in the back so it would look more like it would if it fit.

THE Dress!

i love that style of dress. it could easilly be a Monique Lhuillier design but for waaaaay less than the price.


perhaps u could get a different sash? why not just buy it since it's so cheap anyways? maybe u could find a pictorial event or something else to wear it to.


IMO your wedding gown should not work around the bridesmaids dresses. =)

    • 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?
