Wedding Dress Shopping Today!! (By myself!)

Recommended Posts

So after having a freakout yesterday that I couldn't figure out the reason for, FI and I finally figured out that I was freaking out that I don't have my dress yet, which of course leads to a freakout about how we are going to pay for the dress.

 

So today's the day! I am leaving at 3:30 for an "appointment" and going to RK Bridal and then David's Bridal.

 

I'm sort of excited, but SUPER nervous!

Good luck, I went on my first dress shopping trip on Monday all alone. It was great. You will like some, hate others and love some. If you don't like any oh well dont stress it is only your first trip. After the first trip you get a better understandking of what looks good and what you are looking for so it created a whole net internet session of dresses I loved that I didn't expect to be looking for. Have fun and post pics of some of the dresses. wink.gif

Oh and forgot to say that there are some super great deals out there on dresses. Most of them at David's Bridal are in the range from $300-$600 plus there is a huge sale going on for $100 off. But they have them all the time so don't feel pressured in buying right now if it isn't a good time. wink.gif

Hi! How did your day go?? Hope it was a success!

 

I went to RK & David's a while back but I need to go again. I was a little disappointed when I went to RK b/c the sort of straight/sheath style I wanted just didn't look right on me & the consultant told me that I was looking for the wrong dress style (hips are too big I guess). I appreciated her honesty but it made me a little depressed. sad.gif I was also in a bit of sticker shock at RK & I think the combo sort of turned me off looking for a while. We did find some dresses that looked good & weren't ridiculously priced so I just need to get over it & get out there again.

Karen, I had the same experience the first time I went dress shopping too. Everything I put on that I liked looked HORRIBLE. I didn't try again until last week, a good 5 months later. Don't get discouraged the right dress IS out there.

 

So yes, I'm back (sorry so long to post, work backed up while I was out). I tried on about 50 dresses, including the Dessy Sandals dresses, which were awful on me. At the end of the day it was between two dresses, one of which was the one I fell in love with a few weeks ago.

 

In the end I ended up following my gut and getting this dress, even thought it was $500 more expensive sad.gif

Sorry its sooo fuzzy. I forgot a camera and was left with just my Blackberry. Here it is from the website:

Also got a veil while I was there (overpriced I know, but 12 months same as cash makes it like free for 11 months!) it is like the one below, but all white everywhere!

I love love love that dress! So glad you followed your gut & got the one you love!

 

Thanks for the encouragement - it's been about 4 months since I tried anything on so it's probably time I get back out there. Though I did order a dress I saw online at Nordstrom & it'd be great if if works out (apparently none of the stores w/in 100 miles of nyc carry it).

    • 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?
