Anyone have the just the 2 of you for the wedding???

Recommended Posts

My husband bought his tan linen suit on Ebay for about $100 and bought his shirt from the gap. J Crew and Target may also be a great place to look for bridal dresses as well, believe it or not.


And thanks for the compliments. Jay is pretty great and we had so much planning our wedding. Just wanted to add that a couple's massage or a private catamaran cruise with champagne can be nice for an eloping couple to do on wedding day.

Did you post your dress? I would love to see it.
Mine is a Sottero & Midgley! It wasn't what I first wanted, but once I tried her on no other dress compared and I couldn't turn back. I ordered mine about 2 weeks ago, so I still have a ways to go! sad.gif

It was just so simple and light. Though it may not be as beautiful as some of them, the fact that it is so simple will make me feel comfortable, which is important to me. I love it, but haven't seen it since I bought it several weeks ago because it takes six weeks to alter, I think because they are so busy because of prom/graduation season etc. So hopefully I will love it when I get it back too. Obviously the model is not me and I am not that skinny so it looks a bit different on me. It is very simple so I feel like I can wear a veil maybe without feeling too ridiculoushuh.gif Opinionshuh.gif I also got roped into buying a headband at David's bridal. Not sure if I will wear the headband, veil, or both. I planned on wearing a flower at first so I bought those too just in case I decided I wanted to wear that and could practice. Opinions? I wish I would have waited until I got the dress. But be careful if you try on dresses at David's because you get an assistant for just you and they bring you all of these dresses then put a veil and headband etc and just make you so exited and you feel so beautiful that you just get so into it and want to get it all. At least I did. I went to tons of boutiques and trying them on there was the best. Maybe because I was by myself??
It is so fun trying them on. Go to the store, you will have fun. My fiancee got his clothes at Dillards. He was initially going to get just pants and shirt. But they had Perry Ellis pants and jacket on sale and only one jacket left and it was his size so we took it as a sign and it looks awesome on him. I think I will feel a little better with him in a jacket at least for the actual ceremony only 10-15 minutes because I will be all dressy and he can take it off so we will have both looks.
Stores are having sales on linen jackets/pants etc now and I heard (from other threads) they are really hard to find at other times during the year so I would maybe look quick. Keep us updated on the dress search. It is so fun.
I love your dress!! it is very simple but beautiful. I want a light dress, nothing too heavy and no I don't want to wear a veil. I am really looking for that very simple look and I have seen some brides just wear a flower and that's just whatI want. But I need to hurry up and my wedding is in July and I am really procrastinating!! Thanks for all the info.

Is it really bad that I still don't have my wedding dress? (getting married Jul 9) I don't know why I keep thinking that it won't be too hard to get one! I guess Im not counting that maybe I will have to get it altered? is it possible to find a dress that maybe doesn't have to be alteredhuh.gif? Help!

We're also running off just the two of us for a beach wedding with an AHR a couple of weeks after we return. I CAN'T wait! I haven't worked out the details of exactly how the ceremony will go, but I'm going to finish up the remainder of my planning next week while I'm off work so I'll keep you posted.
hey eloping789,

Your getting married a day before me, only I'm getting married in Mexico. I also see you're doing it at the Melia. I was there last year and loved it. It is a beautiful hotel, the grounds are just gorgeous. The Dominican Rep. is a beautiful country and I am sure you'll have no problems finding someone to help you get ready (I am from there so that's why I'm saying it lol) and I am sure you'll also have a great time..

Airampz, Oh my God. I want both of those dresses!!! That is exactly what I would want if I would have seen them. Usually I have an opinion, but I love both of them. I would have to see them on. OK. Did you only find these online or did you see them in person? Because all of the ones that I called about online or even asked about in the store (because the stores can order them too.) they have told me that itwould take several months and about 6 weeks for a "rush" then if you have to get it altered... I know, I was surprised too. So try not to fall in love with a dress until you know if you can get it on time. I did that. And I think wedding dresses pretty much ALWAYS have to be altered. Unless you are really tall because I think they make them that way so they can fit a wide range. Not trying to freak you out but I had no idea about these things. Maybe you have more options where you are. Though I would call around and go to some stores soon so you can see. That first dress, there was one at the David's bridal where I live that sort of looks like that. I am pretty jealous of those dresses though. And of course they do look different on, remember. Keep us updated.

Jasmine Bridal / B2078 / White (WH)
They are both fabulous for a DW! Have you tried them on? That will be the determining factor.

***Ok ladies, so how many of you are going the garter route even if it's just the two of you? Traditionally, they are worn for the garter toss or to hold up stockings but I was thinking of wearing a New York Yankees garter for him to find underneath my dress as a special surprise. What are you brides doing?

Blushing bride, I haven't thought about wearing a garter BUT now that you mention it may be pretty cute and sexy for the wedding night. I mean I will probably be wearing some really unsexy undergarments like spanx and padded bra etc under my dress and want no reason for him to be going under there to see any of it...LOL. But I think I may need to get one. Why nothuh.gif I think the grooms, although they don't know or talk about it will appreciate us making a "wedding" with some of the traditional stuff even though it is "just us two" and supposed to be like eloping and signing papers etc. Don't ya'll think so? Well, thanks for giving me one more thing for my shopping and to do list. HAHA!


What about a veil? How many of you will be wearing a veil? I can't decide. I sort of want to but just not sure...

    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win.
