    me, I have to, because I loss some weights, so I need to "beef up" a bit.

    but if I don't have to beef up, then I would prefer to be as light as possible.  I am getting married in July, so it can be like 36C and super humid.

      We were trying for July 4th 2011 as well but ended up doing a week early simply because travel was a couple hundred dollars cheaper for our guests the week prior.  So our wedding is June 28th 2011 in Punta Cana Dominican Republic.

        what time is ur wedding?  I went to Mexico in end of June this year for a site visit, and reschedule my ceremony from 4pm to 5pm, because it was still too hot at 4pm.  I also saw a wedding at 2pm on the beach, omg..the guests were like lobsters on BBQ.

            OMG...too funny but also unfortunate to have your guest dying of heat and possible heat stroke!!!! Which is why I picked 5:30pm...

              Ok I received my bff's wedding dress today.  It was inspired by my dress, and I added a cape and a sash (because my bff wants it in ivory, with a pink sash and more...flowy)

              She is currently in Beijing, so she can't try it on yet.  She is a size 12/14, with a 36 inches waist, so nothing in the bridal shop in Montreal would fit her perfectly.  Looking from the dress...I think the size is ok.  However, I will have to wait til her return to see if we need some alternations.

              These are the pics ...with the hanger...IMG_1639.JPGIMG_1641.JPGIMG_1644.JPG

                    Okay ladies, I finally got home to try on my monica bridal dress. The beading looks great, but there is a few mistakes. The biggest problem is that the dress is two sizes too large and will need significant alterations. I figured I would be able to avoid that with the corset closure but it is still big when completely cinched. I think I want to add crinoline to make it pouf a little...

                     

                    Here are the pictures:

                      looks very close to the inspiration dress!  But yes, much too big
