Custom made wedding dress in progress!

Recommended Posts

OMG Lisa I just wanted to say congratulations on the weight loss!!! Honestly, I can't see someone being offended over that though. It's not like she lives around the corner and you're deciding to take it to someone else. I think its super exciting and can't wait to see the pics!!!

I just found this post today and I am so excited for you! That is great that you are having your aunt make it for you! What talent she has!


Congrats on the weight loss too! I'm also trying to shed some pounds before the big day! I am also having my wedding dress custom made. But, since I live in China (Home to mostly ALL wedding dresses) I was able to show the wedding dress tailor pictures of mine (Bonny dress) and she is making it for me! I go for my first fitting in 2weeks! I can hardly wait!!


I love seeing the progress on your dress! I bet it has been fun being involved in the "making" of it. You will be a beautiful bride no doubt!!!!


Keep us all updated... this is very exciting!

Lisa that is such a great problem to have! Cheers to you!! Like everyone else, I think if you just talk to your aunt she'll totally understand. And who knows? She may be back earlier than you thought. Congrats girl!!

Congrats on the weight loss Lisa!!! I think your dress is gorgeous and your Aunt loves you so at the end of the day altering your dress to fit your new slimmer body will be the icing on the cake for her!


I agree with sending her the pics to show just how much needs to come in and who knows, she may either come back early to do this or she might tell you to have a local seamstress do this.


Your going to look so beautiful on your big day!!!

    • 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?
