Any last minute dress purchaser’s

Recommended Posts

I am fed up with the dress search! I just want to get married to my BFF and have a good time with my family and friends. I feel like I am going to look nice in whatever I choose to wear and right now the dress search has gotten on my last nerve and become too big of an issue. I am confused on which dress to purchase. Even though you lovely BDW ladies have given me some good advice, Iâ€m still not sold on one and I donâ€t feel like trying on anymore anytime soon. Typically when I go in the store and see something I like and just buy it, itâ€s normally a keeper. When I go in the store and have to think about a purchase I sometimes end up never wearing it. As well as I often have clothes that hang in my closet and donâ€t get worn for a long time after I buy them. So am I crazy for wanting to purchase my dress last minute? Where would be the best places to go to at the last minute? Has anyone experienced this?

I see that your wedding date isn't until May, so I wouldn't even worry about it right now. I just bought my dress for our wedding in February. It won't be here until a few weeks before the wedding, but that will give me just enough time.

In my opinion, if you aren't "feeling" a dress yet, then hold off and look in a month or two. I agree that marrying your best friend is the most imporant part, but you also want to feel gorgeous walking down the aisle. I say hold off for now and then start fresh.

Just make sure that you purchase something 4 months before your wedding because that seems to be the average ordering time.

Good luck....and try to enjoy the shopping experience!

I am super last minute. I have put off buying a looking and buying a dress since I did not want to get suck into the chaos of trying on dresses and stuff. Well, now I am having a tough time getting a dress because I feel like I am running out of time. Bad idea on my part. Also, I thought it would be easy to get a simple destination dress..but I thought wrong. Good luck with your search. The earlier you search the more options you have.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • 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
