For those of you looking for "beachy" style bridesmaid dresses check the online Sears site...I bought a great aqua colored halter dress to wear at our AHR and it was under 100$.You can have it shipped to you or you can pick it up at the store, if it doesn't fit they will let you return it as long as it still has this special tag on it.

 

It is only available in the aqua and a yellow ( was in a baby pink also before) now .It was very comfortable to wear and light, can definately be worn again.

 

It is on the site under womens dresses, bridal.

I took my dress last night for my first fitting and like the lady so far. I will post a better review after the 14th when I go for my second fitting. She is taking it in ALL over, adding in boning, tightening up the seams (it was a sample) and putting cups in.. She charged me $179 which I thought was great!

$179 sounds like a steal of a deal for all that. Make sure to let us know. Thanks guinea pig Nadine!

 

Jen- Nice to see you on here finally. I actually am on here more than my e-mail (well, my home one, not work). Do you have pics of the two dresses? We all love to see them and it's nice to have outside opinions sometimes.

haha dont worry I bought my dress in January and got it in June and was willing to get it fit then but they made me wait unless my weight changed. I just have a ton of things with school going on in January so I want as little stress as possible :) It wont take very long to get it altered Im picking it up on December 17th so you have nothing to worry about!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
