"Wow, that's beautiful!" OR "Woah, what was SHE THINKING?"

Recommended Posts

I love #2 on you better, I'm not into the big gowns for me, but on you it looks stunning :)

 

I hope you get what you want and I know your mom will be happy for you in the end no matter what!

Christie, what the hell were you thinking? lmao..sorry! I kid, I kid! Your dream dress is BEAUTIFUL! Why on earth would you think it was "too much"?? And trust me, I'm in no position to judge on the entire issue of buying a dress too soon; my dress searches are the stuff of legend around here. lol

 

You are entirely right in your thinking....this is your wedding and the ONE thing you need to be rock solid on other than the guy next to you is that you feel and look beautiful. Don't settle when you're not happy about a dress, period. The first dress is very classic and timeless. I like it. BUT, the second dress is more intricate without being overpowering AT ALL, so do not walk around worrying about looking over the top. I swear, when I read your post I was expected 8 miles of tulle in the pic! It's a beautiful gown, that looks very much like a modern wedding gown! I really think it suits you and it's stunning!

 

What are we alway saying around here? Please YOURSELF. At the end of it all when everyone has left and it's just you, hubby and your memories....you want to look back with no BIG regrets. It's obvious that if you don't get the dress you love you're gonna regret it, so do it and be happy!

 

Now...about this "hippier" crap. Watch your language when you are talking to the walking-birth-center-with-a-mermaid-gown over here. hahahahahahaha! No no..I get it. It's all about comfort and if you aren't comfortable wearing something like that being more of an hourglass then it's definitely a no-no. Me? I'm gonna swing these suckers left to right all the way down that aisle and whoever gets hurt it's just too bad. tee hee

Let me just say a special thanks to the ever-honest and hilarious Miss Savannah -- if you're not a professional writer, you should consider a career change, because you always make my literally "laugh out loud" and you offer the most spot-on advice next to "Dear Abby"!

 

THANKS FOR BEING SO FANTASTIC, EVERYONE! #2 IT IS!!! :)

Well if you want a WOW factor, you definately have it in dress #2! The beading and lace on that dress is GORGEOUS! AND, I agree with everyone, You look absolutely STUNNING in that dress!! I think the sweetheart neckline suits you better.

 

I love the idea of shortening dress #1 and wearing it to your AHR! You can even use that for your TTD if you decide to do one!!

I MEAN IT - YOU GUYS ARE TRULY THE BEST! Thanks so much for all of your sweet, greatly appreciated compliments and insight! woot.gif

 

Just to be on the safe side, I have gone on what seems like every imaginable bridal gown website, from the super ritzy Kleinfeld site to DB's comparably priced competitor site (Alfred Angelo), and NOTHING has jumped out at me as a dress that will be able to top #2 as THE DRESS for me!

 

As I mentioned, I have the standard 15-20 lbs. I want to lose before Wedding Day, so I think I might wait a few months before I purchase the dress, so I don't have to get a zillion alterations. Hey, and if I am REALLY lucky and bust my ass working out, maybe I'll be able to even get a size smaller than the one I tried on in the picture?! Fingers crossed THAT miracle will happen! (Off-topic side bar: And does anybody know off hand when the next BDW Biggest Loser season is? I think I might have missed signing up for it....bummer!)

 

Again, XOXO to you all!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
