My dream of being barefoot.. shattered.

Recommended Posts

Yamille,

 

I'm going barefoot also. My dress does drag a bit due to the embroidery work on the bottom, we couldn't hem it any shorter. I decided to just deal with it and go barefoot anyway. Have you ever tried to walk in the sand in wedges? It's not exactly easy!!

ok. now I am rethinking it all. Maybe I will buy the wedge flip flops to have just in case. Ok for my second fitting I will walk around barefoot and see what happens.

 

I also can't believe that we are paying over $200 in alterations and it's not even being hemmed. wtf?

Yamille, I totally agree with Carly. I had my reception shoes on for my alterations & wanted to go barefoot for the ceremony on the beach. I just let her do the alterations with the shoes anyway.
While I wound up wearing fairly low wedge flip flops for the ceremony, I so wish I would've just gone barefoot. I felt so clumbsy walking in the sand with those wedge flip flops. And the wedge wasn't even that high.

So if you really want to be barefoot, just go for it. Like you said, see how it is when you go for your next fitting. I just don't think it'll be a problem at all.
Also, if you do opt for the wedge flip flops on the day of your wedding, make sure you practice walking in the sand with them at least the day before so you know what to expect!

And please, don't remind me about the price of alterations! Its just crazy! shots.gif

I say go barefoot, so your dress drags a bit!

 

By the end of my reception I was dancing in the ocean and my dress got super wet and sandy. Hey, it's your party go barefoot if you want too!

    • 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?
