happy with my wedding dress????

Recommended Posts

I'm going through the same thing.

 

I decided that I'm going to work my tush off to get my TTD to be "the dress". I love my wedding dress; I never felt it was "the dress", but one that is perfect for my beach wedding. My fiance actually picked it out with me.

 

My fiance dislikes dresses with anything resembling a train and hates the gathered skirts (leave it to him to form an opinion about dresses! LOL), but doesn't care if it's the picture dress.

Your dress looks great on you! Keep it. But, I understand your second guessing...alot of brides go through dress envy. I went through the same thing. I swore I wouldn't be a 2-dress bride, but lo and behold I became one, lol. What motivated my decision was because when going to my first fitting for my Sottero & Midgley dress, I realized it was a tad heavy for the beach. Needless to say, I was disappointed. sad.gif

I then ran across this dress in a bridal magazine and fell in love. Turns out, I got lucky because a bride on craigslist was selling it for super cheap so I snatched it up and she became all mine!!! It is a perfect weight for our beach wedding, and I love it! I haven't had to do any alterations to it, except for dry cleaning. Decide what's important to you, and why you would want a 2nd dress...

today I put my wedding dress on..again..and I decided that when I get alterations I'm not going to have them shorten the dress because I want the train to stay as long as it is. I think once I have it taken in an inch or two (the dress should be a little more snug than it is because that is how it was designed to be) and have the straps taken in just a little that it will be perfect. I mean after all when I first tried the dress on they clipped all up to have it fit perfectly (not that it doesn't fit perfectly now). The only problem I have with the dress not being shortened is the front is a little long even with a heel or wedge. (I have wedges at home that I tried on with the dress because I wanted to see if that is the height I wanted for my shoe, but I would have to walk on sand somewhere to see if they would work for a beach ceremony) BUT I am definitely keeping my dress!!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
