I think that dress is beautiful and you are going to look stunning in it! Your aunt has alot of talent!! I also agree with the ladies that it needs to come in a bit but if it were me since you want the strapless so much wait til you get the rest of it done to make a decision on straps. If you do chose straps I completely agree with Desiree...the chantily pulls the whole thing together beautifully especially since it matches the top and the bottom.

Look forward to hearing what you choose.

Lisa,

Your dress looks fantastic so far the lace is gorgeous but I agree about the waist being taken in and as far as the strapless bra situation, I am a 36ff and I got a long-line strapless bra that holds the girls and gives you a better shape, if you can't find anything locally check out the Goddess line at herroom.com. They are fantastic!

Well I went out this morning and found a better bra at Sears. I'll be meeting up with my aunt again with the new bra, hopefully it works better as I really, really want to go strapless!!

Another update. I spoke with my aunt last night and I told her that I wasn't happy with the dress, that I wanted it closer to my body. She listened to what I had to say and then told me, no problem! So I was really happy and relieved after that. We'll be having another fitting this week I think, so I'll post updates afterwards.

 

Thank you ladies so much. You don't know how much all your opinions mean to me and help me through everything! THANKS!!!!

So it's been a few weeks since I've posted anything because nothing has happened! lol I did speak to my aunt about taking in the dress and she's done that. We are supposed to be meeting up tonight for another fitting so I'll post as soon as I can. Have a great day ladies! :)

    • 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?
