Wow Boo! You have been one busy lady!

I am sure you would not have problems selling them at a reduced cost after you are done with them. If Pam doesn't end up using them, there is always the section on this forum that people sell stuff when they are done. Looks like people have pretty good luck. Would be nice to have someone in the city though...

Ooooohhh! Mel!! I totally love that dress! I've seen it, at least in pictures, before and always thought it was so pretty :) So awesome that you got the dress you've been wanting for a while - you must feel so happy about that!

Boo - The typical response that I got for ordering my dress was 4-6 months for delivery and 4-6 weeks for alterations. Granted that every store and every dress will be different but that was the automated reply from just about every staff member at every store I went to. Since you've got the time to try dresses on at your own pace I would recommend taking advantage of that! I was engaged barely eight months before we knew we wanted the wedding so dress shopping was a priority. Before I finally ordered mine in early September I was getting super stressed out because if you took the maximum order and alteration time (6mo + 6wks) it would basically have me at the airport on my departure date! Thankfully I had a great girl at the store who made sure I would get it on time. Also, my girlfriend who is getting married this august had been shopping with me just for kicks at that point and while she didn't order for a month or two afterwards, she was really glad that she'd started looking (and narrowing down) early on.

Yeah, I was pretty nervous when I bought it as the girl said it would take anywhere from 6-8 months to get it in & another month for alterations....My wedding is in 8 months and the girl ordered me a dress that was definitley too big and I knew i would need alterations. She did say that because Paloma Blanca is a canadian designer she is usually very fast & it would probably be closer to 6 months...so fingers crossed!!!

 

Heres a better picture of the dress...I just couldn't post a picture earlier...

Unfortunatley it wasn't one of the dresses from the sample sale so I had to pay full price sad.gif Seems pretty ridiculous to spend so much money on something i'll only wear for such a short time frame, but I think i'll try selling it when the wedding is over to recoup some of my money...Its really pretty though. So light and perfect for the beach :)

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • 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.
