I may have found my dress!!!!

Recommended Posts

Gorgeous dress Cara! I got mine hemmed for my heels, but then ended up barefoot pretty much the whole time. I figured it would drag a bit in the sand during the ceremony, but it had a train anyway, so what was a little more?

Hey Becks!!!
Thank you!!! :)
That's a good point actually. I might do that also. I really would love a cute pair of purple heels under the dress for photos, or some pretty/fun color, but for the beach and the reception I might want to be barefoot or wear flip flops most of the time. And it has a train so it's already dragging!! :)


So you guys think it's ok for the beach even though it's got all that beading at the bottom?
We might not even have a beach ceremony, we might have it in the gazebo, but if we choose the beach, then I need to make sure my dress is up for that! cool.gif

Sooooo gorgeous, Cara! CONGRATS -- it seems that the universe WANTS you to wear this dress, as it keep reappearing in your life again and again! I am a big believer in reading "signs" and I think all of these signs are shouting, "Buy me! Wear ME! I AM YOUR WEDDING DRESS!!!"

 

I also think it's totally appropriate for the beach, too! I've seen lots of looks ranging from something short and flowy to full scale ballgowns on the beach, and they all look amazing to me! If you feel beautiful in it, it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks is "DW appropriate". I think you'll feel a sense of regret if you get something less elaborate because you feel like you should based on where you're getting married -- and you don't want to be standing there during your "I do" moment being distracted, wishing you'd gotten the dress of your dreams, right? You want to feel glamorous and completely in the moment when you pledge your everlasting love to the man that stands before you!

 

And as far as the shoes goes, well, it's what you prefer. Since I've decided not to get married on the sand, I'm absolutely going with heels, but do what makes you feel the most comfortable and confident! I think the purple heels you want are an adorable idea! wink.gif

Thanks everyone for your replies!! You're all so sweet! And I'm glad you like the dress too!! cheesy.gif

And thank you so much islandbride317 - You are so right!!! I don't want to feel like I'm making myself wear something that's "beach appropriate" because I should, I want to wear what I love and feel glamorous!!! And this dress definitely makes me feel glamorous!!!! cheesy.gif OH I just love it!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
