I'll post some pics in the morning. Today has been brutal and right now, I just wanna eat something and catch up on messages.

 

I'm not over worried about selling it..if no one here wants it, I'll put it on Ebay next week. I already did that once and the dress sold in like two days for forty bucks more than I wanted to get. Thats one reason it doesn't worry me to buy online...there's always someone who wants a gown that doesn't work out for another bride! This is dress #3..lol. I should probably be ashamed to admit that, but hey..I'm keeping one of 'em.

As promised...some shots of the gown. Light being what it is this time of day I had a hard time capturing detail, but used the macro setting to get as much as I could. The dress is clean...I can't even see that it's been tried on. It's in pristine condition, including the hem and underskirting. I wouldn't think it would even need a cleaning for a wedding, but that would be up to the bride. For whatever reason, they cut the size tag in half...but only the size tag. lol I guess a lot of salons do that...no idea why. It's a 12 though.

 

Tried to get some "validation shots" showing the designer's label and such. lol

Awww Savannah it's beautiful, and that totally sucks you bought it under the guise that it was described as being ivory -- clearly it's not, it's white as snow and that chick needs to take that layer of fog off her eyes, lol.

 

Anywhoo, I'm sure you'll get a buyer with ease, the dress is gorgeous!!

I've absolutely no idea how to answer this. lol It felt pretty much like every other bridal gown I've ever handled...not a destination gown, but a regular wedding gown. It's satin, lace and tulle...so...I guess maybe you could hit any local bridal shop with a Tolli or Sottero sample of the same materials and see what it feels like to you. It's very common weight to me...didn't feel any heavier or lighter than anything else I've looked at and I've looked at WAY too many at this point. lmao

I know, right?! I'm still "salty" about it...what the hell was SHE on that day? She made a big deal of it too, saying she ran to the warehouse to look again "just to be sure". I pulled this thing out of the box and my eyes teared up from the glare .....thats just how freakin white it is. hahaha!

Just an update...I'm listing it on Ebay today, most likely with a starting bid of $175....I'm not sure but I think I'll do a 7 day listing like I did for the last one.

I wish I had known about this before I bought my dress a couple weeks ago. I am going to wear this dress :) It is amazingly beautiful and light, perfect for a beach wedding. I got it in the ivory/spun gold colour.

 

Anyone thinking about buying this dress definitely should, it is GORGEOUS!

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
