My TTD Shopping Story with PICS...

Recommended Posts

So I went back and forth about if I should wear my wedding dress or not for the TTD session. My mom isn't ablt to go to Jamaica, but she will be coming to our AHR, so I really didn't want to wear my wedding dress for the TTD, so I started looking for another dress.

 

I wanted something similar to my wedding dress and came accross a halter which is like my wedding dress, of course I didn't have the money at the time to buy it. So I continued to check on it online and after that first time I saw it, it was never available in ivory again. The only colors available were red and blue. I was devestated. I went to Dillards to see if they carry it in the store and they carried Betsey & Adams dresses, but not the ivory halter I was looking for.

 

I didn't know what to do, so I put it on the back burner for awhile. I came accross a VS catalog and saw a cotton long white halter dress for $39 I decided to get it as I knew if it woudn't work for the TTD that I could wear it to dinner one night. I bought the dress, and loved it. After I tried the dress on I knew I couldn't wear it in the water because it was cotton, but I decided to wear the cotton dress for y AHR since it is more casual and wear my actual wedding dress to trash. I felt good with the decision I made and then...

 

I happened to be going through my favorite websites and I said, let me delete this since I have it worked out now, but I'll check one last time and what did you know, the dress was available in only ivory and in my size...

 

I was excited...I just got it today and love it :0)

 

Sorry for the long story but I wanted you ladies to know that patience is a virtue.

Great dress! I love the detail at the waist. Plus, the flowy style will look great in the water:) The VS dress will be so fun to throw on while you're in Jamaica too. Good picks!

    • 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
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
