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
Awesome Job Girl!!!!

Keep up the good work, send some good karma my way, I'm trying to drop some pounds too!

Can't wait for the updates!!

Hi ladies!

 

I thought that I would post some pictures that my mom took this past friday. As some of you know, I've now lost 16.6 pounds, which is awesome, but now the dress doesn't really fit.

 

Here's what the dress looks like on me now (sorry, bad hair day! lol)

what I would like the dress to look like by raising up the empire waist and pulling the dress closer to me

the amount of material that I am holding, to pull the dress back to fit me better

and the lace-up, which now doesn't even look nice because my shape has changed so much

here's a pic of my hair flower that my aunt made to match the one on the dress. I believe it's too big, so she'll make it smaller

My aunt does know about my weight-loss but I have yet to send her some pics. I'm going to be super busy over the next few weeks as we're moving, so once we settle in, I'll be sending her some pics.

 

Enjoy ladies and thank you so much for all your kind words and support throught this process. Although it's not quite done yet, we're getting there!! WOO HOO!!! cheesy.gif

Lisa, congratulations on your weight loss. I know what you mean about the dress not fitting now. I've lost 20 pounds and don't even want to have mine altered until November because I'm hoping to lose 5 - 10 more. The dress is beautiful and you will be 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?
