Dress Advice - What Would You Do?

Recommended Posts

Hey girls!


I've been mulling over this in my head for the last few days and have decided to seek your wise opinions on the subject.


My dress, which is not classified specifically as a "destination" wedding dress, has a rather long train. I think the train would be lovely for a church wedding but I'm not sure I'm comfortable having it down for a destination wedding ceremony, like it's too formal.


I was thinking I may just keep it bustled the entire day (including the ceremony). If I do this, then I won't have to worry about my mom or step-dad accidentally stepping on it when we walk down the aisle too, which is a nice bonus lol. I don't know, what would or have you done in this situation?


I've included pics to help you guys see what I mean. cheesy.gif

I think it's beautiful. My dress had a pretty long train. I wore it down for the ceremony then bustled it. I kept it bustled for our AHR.


You can also have it cut off if you are worried it is too long. I personally think wedding dresses need trains, LOL When will you ever get a chance to wear one otherwise?

That was my original plan...so I might still do that.

Thanks for your opinions girls, they mean a lot to me!! cheesy.gif I guess I'll have to think on it some more, I do love how it looks with the bustle up though. I would shorten the train except that I'm already paying $300 to get the bust fixed and the bustle made, so that brings my total dress cost to $1,900. It's starting to hurt my wallet a little lol. sad.gif

    • 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?
