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.

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.

1.
Jasmine Bridal / B1039 / White (WH

2.
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...

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
