Back of my dress :) hope it fits in Dec!

Recommended Posts

So, I tried it on yesterday for the first time in a long time. I tried it on with my undergarments, accessories, the whole shebang!

I love it, it fits, it's comfortable, I love it. This is a Sottero and Midgley which I can't find on their website anymore (thinking its' discontinued) and it has a detachable train. The photo doesn't show the details with the applique lace and beading on the train and the back, but that train can be snapped off after the ceremony which is nice.

 

The problem is....look at the back! it's almost as tight as it will go! I bought this dress Nov 09 and I've lost about 26 lbs since - and plan on losing a little more. Since it was a tie up back I wasn't going to plan for those types of alterations, but I guess I might have to.

Or, if it doesn't fit, sell it? and buy a new one? I can sell it for cheap since it was a sample sale.

Here's the pic (please ignore my grandma's house in the background and Big Brother playing on the TV) hahaha!

I think the dress looks fantastic. I know what you mean though, that was a struggle I was having when I ordered my dress too as I am losing weight. How much will it cost to get made smaller?

Congrats on the weight loss! Personally, I prefer when the corset is tighter (like yours is) b/c I think it gives the impression that you are skinnier. When I see them dragged all the way across the back, it just seems like the dress is too small which means the bride is too large! So I prefer the look that you have going on. But i know that other brides really like the corset to show across the back. So I guess what it comes down to is, what is your personal preference on how it looks??

That dress looks beautiful on you! And congrats onthe weight loss!

 

This isn't meant to be discouraging, but don't be surprised if it becomes tougher to lose weight as your wedding approaches. All sensible eating went out the door for me because I was so focused on getting everything ready. Also, in a tropical climate, you won't want your dress to be super tight. I had my MOH loosen mine twice throughout the night because it felt like the dress was shrinking on me. Just a few things to think about.

Kristy, I totally know what you mean! I figure with all the bridal showers and bachelorette parties (not just my own...) it will be hard to lose much more weight. I def agree. And that is a good point, with the humidity, it will be nice to have it a little loose. When I tried it on yesterday, I was already getting a pretty hot underneath and this is the CA coast and it's only 70.

I figure worse comes to worse, I have to pay someone to hem the dress so if I have to have them take it in, it would be less of a hastle to do that than trying to sell and buy something new.

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
