1) don't rely on poster/ ad pics unless you are 6ft tall, and size 2.

2) always try the diff style and color on you, because u don't really know what look the best until you try it on.

3) don't expect you will look like the model, unless again you are 6 ft tall and size 2

4) don't be afraid to ask...and try on different styles

5) most of the brand name dresses are from China, so don't overpay for a dress

6) don't take sales pressure

7) when you are size 14, it wasn't the dress who is too big or gives you a belly.

9) don't go overbudget, as other guests don't care about ur dress anyway

10) go thru steps 1 to 9!

Just one more tip...  try to find a dress shop that has a variety of dress in all sizes. It's hard to imagine how your dress will fit when you try on something that is nowhere near your size. If you are not a size 2, don't worry there are dresses that will look beautiful on you. Enjoy your curves. If you are a size 2, same thing, you will find something that makes you a beautiful feminine bride.

YAY! My dresses are being shipped out tomorrow! I can't wait to see them. Too bad I will be stuck on the other side of the country when they arrive sad.gif

 

Monica Bridal had told me they would send pictures prior to shipping, but I didn't receive any yet. Maybe tonight?

OH, and the golden rule, once you've found your dress(es), STOP looking! 

Wedding dresses are like men, there are always better ones out there ..somewhere, but sometimes we just have to pick one and settle down.

lol i love it!  Good advice though... even though I found my dress I still find myself casually looking at others.  But you're right, we dont do that with our men... why do it with a dress!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
