Experienced DW Brides did you regret the Big Dress ?

Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies Just wondering For a beach wedding was your Big wedding dress a nuisance? I am debating on a flowy dress or going for the big princess dress. I just wondered how the faired for your wedding? was it too hot and annoying draggin in the sand or would you always opt for the BIG dress?

Any and all comments are welcome!

I personally couldn't imagine having a big princess dress for a DW-I was SO hot in mine, and my dress wasn't poofy or heavy at all....

 

To each their own though.... cheesy.gif

I loved my dress. It was a pain walking in the sand with it, but after the ceremony it was fine. At that point I didn't care if it got dragged around the sand or got wet. Surprisingly I wasn't that hot in mine at all. I hated the slip underneath, and took that off immediately after the ceremony. Once that was off, I felt like a champion.

 

My adivce is wear the dress you have always wanted to wear. When I first went dress shopping, I was looking at more simple dresses, but once I put "my" dress on...there was no turning back.

I loved my big dress. It was what I always wanted and I don't think that i would have felt "bridal" in anything less.

 

I had a kinda pouffy TTD, that I changed into after dinner, but because it was a little tight, not because it was hot or heavy

I had envisioned wearing a flowy, non poufy dress, and I wanted something v-neck that had thicker straps so I wouldn't have to worrry too much about tan lines. When I started trying on all the non-poufy dresses they only came in small sample sizes so I couldn't even get them on to even get an idea of what they would look like on me. The ones that did fit were more of a traditional, poufy style dress. I didn't think the dress I got was super poufy compared to others I tried on, and I didn't add a slip or anything underneath. I really loved the beading on my dress and on the cathedral length train so I went with it. Yes, I was hot, but I think I would have been hot in anything I wore since our wedding happened to be the hottest day while we were in Mexico. I say go for a dress you love and feel comfortable with. The worst thing would be to pick a dress you think is appropriate for the location, but not loving the way you look in it.

I have the same dilemma. Already bought a dress that is fit-to-flare in silk taffeta. It is a really nice designer dress but now I am starting to think maybe a chiffon gown will work better on the beach. Tried on WTOO Clarissa today and absolutely loved it! Just worried it may look too plain in pictures and regret it in the end.

Mine was mermaid/fit to flare. It was pretty heavy and I was hot by the end of the night...but I would totally pick the same dress if I did it all over again. It was the dress that looked the best on me and made me feel like a bride.

I never had the vision of a particular dress, I just went shopping and the first one I liked I ordered. I can't lie...June in Mexico is hot and I was feeling it, but I changed into a white sundress after the first dance and I felt so much cooler. I wouldn't have done it differently though.

 

I think you should wear what you want to wear because the day goes by so fast and you don't get a re-do so wear the dress you love :)

    • 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?
