Custom made wedding dress in progress!

Recommended Posts

congrat's on your weigh lost lisa, I am sure when you send your Aunt the photo's she will give you her blessing for some one else to do the alterations if she thinks it will be too big a job for her to alter the dress, or because of the time limits before you travel. Don't stress, I am sure everything will turn out great and you will look beautiful for your big day.

lisa i don't know how I missed this thread but I just read the whole thing and your dress is fan-freakin-tastic!!


I think that your aunt was waiting for the alterations until December in case you lost or gained weight -- she worked so fast to create it, she can probably take it in quickly too -- I personally wouldn't take it to a local seamstress or even suggest it to her unless she suggests it first -- she may want to start/finish the dress and call it her own.. kwim?

I'd just call her and say, 'yay! I lost a bunch of weight and the dress is really big on me now -- do you think that you will have enough time to do the alterations?'


anyway.. my 2 cents :)


congrats on such a beautiful dress and such an amazing aunt you have!!


and keep up the good work with cywt!! who knows, it may end being 30# by december!!! :)

Just another quick update!


I emailed my aunt about the dress. Told her about my weight-loss and she was SUPER happy for me! She then informed me that she will be home on the 10th of December - about 3 weeks before I leave. I think it'll be enough time for her to alter the dress, at least I'm hoping that it is. I plan on taking pictures this week of me in the dress so I'll post them as soon as I can. I'm getting excited now!!!!! cheesy.gif

    • 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?
