When I was looking at wedding packages, I seem to remember one or two including preparation of the wedding garments as part of it. Maybe the person who handles that could also help you get dressed? If you're going to the resort salon to have your hair/makeup/nails done or anything, I bet they would help you get dressed too ...

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 Airampz, Have you looked at regular wedding boutiques or david's bridal. David's Bridal has a section for just DW dresses and bridal boutiques usually have a section for DW dresses. Some are still kind of formal to me, some aren't, but if you are like me when you try them on you will want to wear one. I couldn't find just a long white dress that isn't a "wedding dress". I am know they are out there but... And of course tons on line, but I just don't understand how people can have the courage to get one online without trying them onhuh.gif I wish I could have because there were tons online that I liked, but from trying them on at the stores, so many that I thought would look good didn't so I didn't dare order online because they can't be returned, most of them.

I got mine at David's Bridal. I think it is pretty informal. Let us know!!! I love seeing what other people chose, especially if it is just two of you wedding like mine.

Also, what are your grooms wearing? Mine got a linen shirt and a white (kind of off white) jacket and pants. Not sure if he is going to wear the jacket at all and if the shirt will be in or out?. Neither of us are very fashion conscious so we don't know... I would love to know/see what yours are wearing?

Awww. Karen, it does sound like it was a perfect day. Thanks for posting your reviews. I never know where to find these...It helps to read to get an idea of how it might be. I hope our wedding is as perfect as yours. I read your husbands review. So cute. Like I replied to him, my fiancee is in trouble! HAHA!

We won't be using a travel agent since it's only the two of us. It does make sense if you are having a group.

For those that are looking for simple dresses, alot of designers have a destination line for beach brides. Some examples are Alfred Angelo, Maggie Sottero, Dessy, Nicole Miller, David's Bridal. I, myself, wanted a destination dress but when I started trying on wedding dresses, I didn't like the way they looked on me and they didn't make me feel like a bride. The one I chose is A-line and not one I would have picked out initially. So, there may be one you like but you won't really know until you go try it on. Either way, it was so much fun trying on dresses!

Hey,
I know it's hard finding the perfect wedding dress. Most dresses I have seen are too "formal".I have checked David's Bridal online and they have a nice selection of gowns but online only sad.gif I'm still going to visit the store, I'm not one too fond of buying online, it's just not me when it comes to clothes. Did you post your dress? I'd love to see it! and about my FI we still don't know if he should go with the suit or just a simple white shirt and linen pants, you know that very casual look. I don't know! Where did your FI get his suit from?

I did buy my dress online, actually so far I've bought two. And now I'm looking for a third sad.gif I went by the measurements that they said, but the gowns never fit, not even close. And to have them tailored will cost me upwards of $500. So I am starting back at square one. I am going to start looking at prom dresses, alot come in white and they're not your traditional wedding dress. I'm sure some women have had good luck online...just not meLOL My FI is going to wear linen pants and a dress shirt. He originally thought he'd wear a suit, but we think it will just be too hot and he doesn't want to be uncomfortable. Good Luck!!!

My dress was from the Dessy Sandals Destination Wedding Collection. It was lightweight and easy to get into by myself. You may want to buy off the rack too. I got my wedding dinner dress from Macy's for $16! I saw some great dresses in BCBG as well.

Hey Airampz, here is a link to my dress. David's Bridal - Chiffon A-line gown with split front skirt, satin cuff neckline and empire waist. I tried on a billion dresses and contemplated between two of them (this was not one of the two) for weeks and finally went to get the one I chose and tried this one on just to do it and chose it on the spot. 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.

    • Unfortunately, pregnancy yoga training is a time of extreme. It's all part of the deal; even the stress is often a normal effect of the hormones that are raging through your system. But you have to keep stress at a controlled level because you have to think of your health and that of your baby. Here are some tips on how to keep stress at bay during pregnancy: 1. Evaluate your activities. Pregnancy is a time of many changes; your body is changing and your life is also about to change. You are transitioning to becoming a new mother. While you're at it, it's high time to change your activities as well. Evaluate your activities by checking your schedule. Perhaps you lived quite a busy life before. That can be pretty stressful and may even put your pregnancy at risk, so it would be best to slow things down a bit now that you're pregnant. Pregnancy has its way of affecting your mood and making you feel tired all the time, so there will be times when you just won't be productive. So instead of piling up on tasks, choose activities that you can drop or delegate to someone else. 2. Break the bad habits. Whether you really were trying to get pregnant or pregnancy crept up on you, somewhere along the way you will face the need to break your bad habits. What are these notorious bad habits you definitely have to say goodbye to during your pregnancy? · Smoking · Alcohol consumption · Too much coffee or any other beverage that contains caffeine One good way of breaking bad habits, even ones that you've had for years, is subliminal programming. Subliminal programming means re-training the mind; it works in two steps: · Removing negative embedded factors in the subconscious Since this method communicates directly with the subconscious, which is responsible for directing our actions and behaviors, it is more effective than consciously deciding to stop smoking or drinking. 3. Take up meditation. If you haven't tried it before, now is the best time to take up meditation. There are many tips and instructions online as well as many books on the subject. You can learn it on your own or join a meditation class. Meditation is the art of emptying the mind to relax both the mind and the body. It is also very effective in regulating emotions, which can be hard to control when you're pregnant. If you have plenty of time to spare, join a yoga class. 4. Block the horror stories. Every woman who's been pregnant loves telling her pregnancy stories to non-pregnant or newly pregnant women. It's their way of saying "welcome to the club." While good advice is particularly helpful, most women tend to share horror stories, or stories of how stressful and emotional pregnancy was for them. You may also use subliminal messages to train your mind to block these negative stories, so you can focus on the positive things about your pregnancy. There are many positive things, too, the biggest of which is the new life inside you, so you won't run out of good thoughts to nurture in your mind.   Safe and Easy Workouts to Do During Your Pregnancy The main rule of thumb when exercising while pregnant is to modify your workouts to suit the trimester you are in and to honor what is happening to your body. What is deemed appropriate for your first trimester is certainly not for your third trimester. However, there are several exercises that you can perform right through to the end. Let's examine the first trimester. You are just beginning your nine-month journey. You may be feeling a bit more tired, perhaps queazy, but you may not even be showing a baby bump yet. At this time, if you have already had a workout program in place, you can continue with what you've been doing.  Some doctors may not advise any lying down exercises at any time during your pregnancy, but speak with your physician to determine if this modification is necessary. Appropriate exercise for the first trimester: • your normal routine (within limits) • walking • swimming • low impact aerobics (keeping heart rate low) • strength training • yoga As you move into your second trimester, you may be feeling a surge of energy but your body is showing the pregnancy more and certain workouts may not feel as good. Around this time, lying down is not totally recommended and keeping heart rate low and core body temperature low is important. The importance of abdominal and pelvic floor strength should be highlighted throughout your pregnancy, so if you haven't already started, Kegal exercises should be implemented in all workouts you do. What is a Kegal? The pelvic floor muscles are like a hammock of muscles located at the base of your torso and under your pelvis. To do a Kegal, simply engage the muscles that you would use to urinate. Keeping these muscles strong may make for an easier birth and less pregnancy related incontinence. Appropriate exercise for the second trimester: • Kegal exercises • pelvic tilts (with head elevated with pillows) • walking • swimming • easy yoga • strength training (lighter weights) As you move into your third trimester, you are now getting to the top of your pregnancy weight which may change the way you stand, how long you can sit, and your sense of balance. Aches and pains from your changing body are probably felt more now. Workouts now become about making you comfortable and making sure you simply maintain what you have. A safe abdominal exercise, which also makes your back feel great, is an all-fours cat stretch and contraction. To do: on a rug or sticky mat, go down onto hands and knees. Keeping back straight, simply pull your abdominals in towards your spine without altering the straight position of your back.. Repeat 10 times. From there, round your back up, like an angry cat, feeling a stretch over your shoulders and spine, then release. Repeat 5 times. Prenatal yoga is great for elevating your mood, may help you sleep better, and decreases pregnancy aches and pains. Just make sure you speak with your doctor first and remember to never start a new program while pregnant. Keeping up with what you're doing is super and will make for an easier birth and a faster recovery.
