My $70 (plus $70 shipping) wedding dress is here!

Recommended Posts

Laura its about time, j/k!!!

 

It looks like the dressmaker did a pretty good job, it looks very similar to the one you wanted (except I keep picturing it being pink!)

 

I love the neckline and I think the different direction of the material on the waist area makes your waist look tiny

 

All in all, I think its very pretty and you got a fantastic deal on it!

 

Now, how do you feel about it? Is it "the" dress for you? because thats really all that matters.

hi Laura,
love that the dress was only $70 but I would like to be truthful...I don't really like on you, I'm sorry to say. the top looks to big, the skirt is ok but what's up with the poofy stuff on the right (in pics but must be on the left of you dress) the sashy sort of stuff. I'm not sure if it's the right dress for you. I'm sorry, to say that...but don't want to lie, u know? and I'm sure you will tell me the truth about me when I take pics of my dress when I finally put it on.
I do like the waistline but thats it.

wow - i think they did a great job of making the dress to the model dress - nice work! i know you said the colors and fabric were a little different, but that's tough to tell in the pictures. how do you feel about it?

I actually like it on you, I think that neck and waist line if very flattering. the only concern I would have is if you would be too hot. But its very pretty regardless

gosh - it's about time!! jk!

 

o.k., I really like the waist area! It makes you look tiny!! I like the neckline, but it does look too big. Maybe when you have it altered, they could pull it tighter and make it look not as bunchy around the boob area.

 

Didn't you say that you were going to see if they could remove the pinkish tule (sp?) stuff on your left side and replace it with some that is more of the color of the dress?? I think if you do that, then the dress will look really nice.

 

My only other concern would be getting too hot in it. If you can handle that - the dress is prefect!

I think it looks nice...except for the top. You definitely need to get that altered and I agree with you that the pink toulle side will look much better with a matching color. But..I'm not much of a pink person anyway.

    • 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.
