Find A Dress? Accomplished for this bride!!!

Recommended Posts

Yes girls and guys, I found the dress!!!!!


Can I say eeeeeekkkkkkkkkk! smile123.gif


So if you remember my last thread I was torn on a dress decision.




After staring at those pictures for endless hours I decided I really did love the Casablanca, but I didnt love how I looked in it. I felt frumpy. So today I was heading out to a bridal store that is about 45 minutes away to try on the Maggie Sottero Rasharna dress, and figured Id try additional dresses on to since I was there.


The Maggie dress was way to poofy for me, so I grabbed a few and started trying them on. I was glad to be by myself so I could really just focus on my opinion. The third dress in was it. I saw myself and said, this looks familar. Its the same, well if not the same, very similar lace and beadwork as the Casablanca one I tried on last weekend. And this was a Casablanca. It even had the polka dots in the lace which I LOVED. The saleswoman said they just got this in, its in the Spring 2009 line. I loved everything about it. The fit was perfect, the see through lace on the back was sexy, and even the straps gave it that quirk I was looking for. I didnt even want to try on any other dress! I said this is it. This is sooo it. So she measured me up, and than the other saleswoman said this is a great fit. We can sell you that one, and you wont have to put as much down, we can just do a layaway plan. They reassured me it just came in last week and probably 1 person has tried it on since it was put on the floor 2 days ago. I inspected it and it looked great to me, so I said Im in!

You know how I know I love it? I look at those pictures and think...hmmm not right where I want to be. With some toning and a few alterations it will look much better. But even with thinking that I STILL LOVE it!!!!!


I hope I didnt jump the gun with an impluse buy like that. Especially since its final sale. It just felt right. And the price was right in my range. I figured since I probably wont find it on sale since it just came out its all good. She quoted alterations at $100 max, but closer to around $50/$60.

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
