HELP - I leave Wed, which wedding dress should I wear?

Recommended Posts

I think you should just see how they fit and how they make you feel when you put them on. Good luck

I voted for #1. I can tell by your own comments that you love the first one b/c it is different and you feel that the second one is more festive and common. You are not getting married on the beach so the first one is fine. It's all about what you feel comfortable in. I say go with your initial gut reaction and stay with #1. Bring both of them down of course, but I think you should go for the first one. It looks so elegant. I absolutely love it. And I love dresses that are different, they make a girl feel special.

Hold the phone! You are leaving on Wednesday and you donâ€t have a dress that you decided on. I would be loosing my mind right about now! I really like #1. I think it will look pretty with the area that you are getting married in.

I AM LOSING MY MIND RIGHT NOW!! smile105.gif Actually I think I lost it a while ago LOL.

You guys are helping, though. It's nice to hear your opinions on what I should do. I think when it comes to that day, I will put one on and know which one is "the one". And I am considering the third option of wearing #1 to the ceremony #2 for dinner and dancing.

I'm just kicking myself because I feel like I blew my one chance to look gorgeous on my wedding day and now I have two dresses that are just OK. I have been crying about it for the past few days, which I hate because in the grand scheme of things, it's just a dress and there are a lot bigger problems going on in this world. My FI has been very supportive and helpful, but I'm afraid I am not going to feel like I look my best or feel special on my big day.

I am embarrassed to admit this, but this is how desperate I am: I actually found my dream dress on ebay the other day, a Carolina Herrera strapless mermaid with pleated hem. I had never seen it before at any of the salons I went to. It was never worn but had been altered and the measurements were exact to mine. No one had bid on it in 7 days. As soon as I saw it I thought: THAT is the dress I should have bought. I could even picture myself walking down the aisle toward my FI in it. So I bid on it and then had to leave for work. The auction ended two hours later and I got outbid at the last minute. I actually contacted the winner and offered to buy it from her and she even agreed, only if it arrived and she didn't like it. But she did like it, of course, because it is an amazing dress. Now everything seems second best to that dress. I guess I just have to let it go and realize what's really important is that we are together with eachother and our friends and family, happy and in love!

Aww, I'm sorry about that. I still find dresses that seem to appear out of nowhere and it sucks because where were they when I needed them?? I understand. Maybe there will always be that "I should have picked that dress" thing no matter what dress(es) you end up with. We put a lot of pressure on ourselves to have a perfect day but I bet in the end most brides look back and realize it isn't such a big deal. Of course it is our day to shine but if you deeply love your husband the trimmings don't really matter. I bet he'll think you are a goddess if you walked down the aisle in a $25 white sundress so don't sweat it, try to have fun with it :o)

We are going to bring both of them down. Which one do you guys think I should wear?

#1 is the first dress I ever tried on and I fell in love with it. It is different and very "bridal" to me. It is a Romona Keveza designer dress and cost me an arm and a leg.

#2 is what I bought yesterday at David's Bridal. It's fun and festive, but more typical of what you see all the time.

Also, we are not getting married on the beach, but in a Spanish courtyard at the resort, and I will be wearing a chapel-length veil.

It will be ok smile03.gif You will know the right one when you get there and see the ambionce (spelling and I am a teacher) LOL. I am sure the your FH husband would think you look gorgeous if you wore a mumu and house slippers. It is you that he fell in love with. Not the dress. He loves you and that is all that matters.

    • 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?
