SO 2 days ago I boughy my dress. i put it on and fell absolutely in love with it, i know its the dress i want to wear- no doubt about it. HOWEVER when i went to pay for it and get my measurements taken she aked me if i was ordering it in the color i tried on...... because the color i tried on was champage/ivory. The champagne is very subtle and underneath the ivory & the rest of the dress is IVORY.

 

I was DEAD SET on getting a bright white wedding dress.... myself and my friends all though the dress was white until she told us it wasnt!! anyway they convinced me that i loved it as is and to not change the color but its 2 days later and its all i could think about!!! The consultant told me that the designer I ordered uses a very bright white and it cheapens the look of the dress. she said the one i tried on was the richest looking & i would be dissapointed with the all white, but i can still change my mind!!

 

The dress comes in either champage/ivory/silver, /ivory/ivory/silver or white/white/silver. not only did i NOT get the white but i got the CHAMPAGE ( just saying the word scares me ) i am totally freaking out.

 

am i going to look dirty next to my white tablecloths ??? AHHH GRRR someone help me what would you do !?!? my friends and family thought i looked beautiful and think im insane and dont want to hear about it anymore. =**(

I think that you should go with the color that your tried on and fell in love with, your first instinct is most of the time the best to go with.  Also, you don't know what the "true" white will look like against your skin tone and you could absolutely hate it and than you are stuck with a dress color that doesn't flatter you.  I would say that I see less and less brides  getting true white dress, they are more off white, ivory and champagne has also become very popular.  I would say the color you tried on sounds extremely beautiful and will look nice a rich and won't look off from the white tablecloths. 

 

Hope this helps a little and you have a right to stress as it's a huge decision to make for that perfect dress.  Honestly, go with what you fell in love with and you know that looks amazing on you.

I think this sounds like a beautiful colour, when i was trying on dresses i loved the champagne colours, i would have ordered champagne although my maggie sottero didnt come in that colour so i had to go with white. The bight white almost looks like it has a tinge of blue in if that makes any sense, my sisters wedding dress was bright white and it almost seemed too white! In the sunshine champagne will look fabulous i really dont think you need to worry at all!

Hi, i also want to do a private dinner.. mine is going to a rehearsal dinner too instead of a whole welcome dinner but im wondering how much they charged you ? I would probably have about the same amount of people.... are they giving you a section of the restaurant or did you have to pay to have it private? im still confused about this aspect.. plesae let me know when you have a chance ;)

We opted to spend the money on a reservation for a rehearsal dinner the night before the wedding. We will have 20 people at Himitsu (Asian restaurant). I'm not thrilled about paying for a reservation at an all-inclusive, but it is what it is and our families are so spread out around the country and they have never met so we wanted to have a big family dinner alone.

 Hi Emily,

   We were given 2 restaurant options for a rehearsal/family dinner. Yamina offered us the terrace at Himitsu or the terrace at Oceana. We chose Himitsu. I'm assuming (and hoping) that the terrace is somewhat private. I've looked at the restaurant pictures online and it looks like a patio area.

   The cost is $15/person plus 26% for taxes and gratuity. So the total for the 20 of us will be $378.00. Again, we are not thrilled with this but it will give us some piece of mind and be alot more organized than if we just told the 20 people to show up at Himitsu at a certain time.

   Hope this helps :)

Thanks Kellykellz!

I ordered these from Amol's.com.  They were pretty inexpensive.  After I ordered, I realized I could have gone with smaller maracas.....

That is the thing about being a DW Bride....you shop and shop....

Go to Himitsu before you pay for the dinner.  11 of us were able to be seated without paying for the reservation.  It really depends on the time you go.  The earlier the better.  We ended up paying for our reception diner but did not pay for any other dinners.  On Monday for my hubby's birthday, it was 18 of us.....we ate at Portofino....again we did not pay for the reservation.  Althought he dinner was not private, most of us were seated together.  Give it a try!

 

Good Luck!

Thanks a bunch for the advice. I think we will probably go to group dinners a few times during our stay, so this is really helpful. I think for the Rehearsal, we will stick with our reservation. I think it will feel a little less chaotic, but that's because i'm envisioning the group of 20 of us waiting for an hour, starving and everyone complaining and then me feeling bad that I hadn't done a reservation lol.

I do have another question for you though:

Did you get your wedding coordinator a gift or anything?

Hi Everybody!!

 

I have a beautiful Oleg Cassini (Jackie Kennedy's designer)l wedding dress that I would like to sell, my mother in law bought it for me, but is not my style. My Wedding is on 08.26.2012 and already got the the wedding dress that I felt in love with. The dress is new, Ivory color,  size 10 and with not alterations, it comes with its cover bag, probably you have seen some brides here that had that dress, its beautiful, but again, is not my style. My mother in law bought at David's Bridal for $359 + $10 for the bag, but now at Davis's is for Sale $250.00 online, however, there are not sizes available. I will sale it for $250.00 plus S&H. or if you near Philly you just can take it for $250.00. Any questions let me know, and I will give my email for more info. Thanks and happy planning!!!

    • Yes, this happens all the time. One thing to consider is maybe to have the wedding at an off-site location where all your guests can go. There are several in Puerto Vallarta and Cancun Mexico. Most hotels offer a free wedding, but if a majority of guests are not staying there you'll be paying for not only the day pass, but for the food and beverage for each outside guest. Thanks - Sadie  
    • When it comes to your Wedding Clothes, it's pretty normal to be flooded by numerous choices that are available in the market like clothing style, pattern, fabric, and colors.  Absolutely, I liked this dress and I will never miss wearing this outfit for the wedding. Thank you for sharing this post.
    • Hi guys! Thank you for sharing the valuable information. Some students think, “How do I write my book review?” and are confused by this sort of task, and others are happy to do it and enjoy the writing process a lot. Such a difference in perception and attitudes is caused by the ambivalence of this task.
    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
