Hey Pam

 

Thanks for the info.  I'm leaning towards taking it to Connie, I've heard good things :)  Definitly love the idea of the sweetheart neckline!!!  My dress is sweetheart and it really looks great.  My dress should be here around Dec (I hope) since we are getting married in Feb.  Hope to hear how it goes for you.  I too have some weight to loose and hope that I can do that before - man it's tuff!!!  I'm an emotional eater so I'm sure it's going to get harder the closer we get to the day.

Pam - I think altering it into a sweetheart is a great idea! That's the one big thing that I liked more about the Maggie. Keep us in the loop about your alterations! (and I hope we get to see picture afterwards!)

 

Natalie - You're back!!! That's fantastic! :)

Oops - sorry. I won't tell you that the Maggie is absolutely breathtaking.

 

I would add a sweetheart to the DB. I think it's way more flattering on you.

Pam, I totally agree about the neckline.  I think that was the one thing that made me love the Maggie dress over the DB one.  The bottom of the DB dress is soooo much nicer in my opinion.

 

Not sure if any of you ladies are signed up for the Dealfind emails... but this one came through today for a body wrap and teeth-whitening.  Not sure if it actually works or not, but for $59 I'm willing to test it out haha!  Planning to go in for a session right before I go dress shopping ;)  http://www.dealfind.com/calgary/rejuvehealthandwellness?a=96278dcacad1

Pam thanks for the info on Connie's alterations. I thought adding a corset would be way more than $100! Let us know how your dress turns out. And I agree with the other ladies that adding a sweetheart to the DB dress would look fantastic!

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
