Wedding Dresses

Good point about TTD - also you won't want it to heavy in case it's hot. You don't want to pass out at your own wedding or be distracted during your vows because you can only think about how much you are sweating! :

I'm not sure what I'd categorize mine as. I thought I'd end up w/ a beachy chiffon dress, but never loved any of them. And like you, K, like all my dresses are flowy w/ empire waists so maybe that's why I didn't feel as special in them. I ended up w/ what I was first attracted to though - lace in a sheath/trumpet style. So maybe Mexico-beachy? I dunno.

David's Bridal - Allover beaded lace trumpet gown with empire waist and cap sleeves.

 

Oh, and K, I also just posted a response on your NY brides thread about TTD.

I had the same question going through my mind when I went wedding dress shopping and I ultimately decided on a dress that I loved!!! Even though its a beach wedding it is still your wedding and you shouldn't turn down the glam because its on the beach.

I love this dress! What material is it? Do you know if the material breaths? That is my main concern.

My plan was to get a beachy dress, but once I tried them on, I just didn't feel the "wow" with the beach dresses so I now have a traditional dress. Italian silk, with a really big skirt.

Here's a dress that I am considering. It is silk chiffon and is so light weight and comfortable, yet it is very elegant. Take a look at the beads on the back of the dress. I love it! I'm still looking a bit. But this one is nice because it still looks flattering but is light weight. Thought I would share with anyone struggling on light weight vs. glam!

I think this dress has both!

When I tell the consultants at the bridal shops that it is a destination wedding they steer me towards taffeta and organza gowns, they said NO SILK since it is really hot and silk will show sweat if it is form fitting. I don't want a heavy gown just because it will be hot but I do not know the style... I love so many traditional but I love the beachy ones too! how do you decide?

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
