Lisa from Jasmines sent more progress photos of my dress with the lace application (now they will apply the beading and buttons) and what a difference the revisions I asked for made!  It has the shape! I am happy with the progress so far! LLLL
Wow, this really does look awesome. The rouching looks perfect!the shape looks great too. Great choice. It seems like even with the premium grade they do a great job, the designer grade isn't really needed. Congrats!

Thanks! I am really quite happy with how it's progressing and I am happy that it now appears to have a shape. I was getting mighty worried for a second there.

Any advise on how to take my own measurements as accurately as possible?

I had my fiance help me msnwink.gif   We used a measuring tape from the fabric store and also based on my other dresses I have at home and the measuring charts for those dresses, I was able to deduce that what we came up with were accurate measurements.

1st Dress (The differences I noticed were the size and location of the belt, the neckline, and the buttons extending past the waist in the back. They said I will need to wear a petticoat if I want a fuller look).

Thanks for looking!

I agree about the belt location but if it's custom that may just be where your waist is? I am not sure though. I think both dresses are lovely and yes, you should definitely get the petticoat for the first dress to get a more fuller skirt.

the first dress, if they can fix the belt location and remove the buttons from the waist down, then the dress would be perfect! i love the design at the bottom they nailed that part! the second dress is cute,, love the colour! congrats and good luck hun!

I got very discouraged after my second attempt of dress shopping and turned to online... A bit sad I didn't get to have that "moment", but very grateful for online shopping... Just hope to GOD that it looks good when I finally get it!! haha

yep thank god for online shopping Donna!

rThanks! I am also very impressed with the micropleating that Jasmine's has done. what kind of fabric is that? tulle or chiffon? How much did that second dress cost?

    • 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?
