YAY This is so exciting!  I have to wait until December/January-ish for my dress to come in!!  Im sure your dress will be amazing and size is no big deal they will alter it to fit you perfectly!

I was so worried driving to the shop to try on my dress that I was going to hate it and it would look terrible on me and then I would have to start shopping all over again.  I have no dress regret!  I still love it and it feels like it was made for me.  I am a bit sad that the size 16 fit me and it didn't seem huge.  :(  I know this has a lot to do with the corset top.

 

I'll have to have it altered a bit but mostly in length.  I won't do the alterations until November.  I'm going to ask for the leftover fabric back and I'm going to try and make a diy hair flower that I saw on this site.

That's a good idea cndbride. When I my dress I was in love, when I got it I kinda felt like maybe there's something else better. I wanted to make crazy changes but now I'm in love again! But I'm still getting them to do a corset in mine and a sweetheart neckline. I think I just got a bit of cold feet. Lol

CdnbrideJoanne - I know the feeling!  I had the same concerns going in to do my final fitting when my dress arrived.  I arrived, totally expecting it to be a bummer...and I ended up falling in love with my dress again. Don't worry about the dress number they told me...bridal gowns fit small...as well, regardless of the size, you want it to fit all your assets perfectly..!!  No matter what anyone says, everyone goes to a wedding ceremony to see the bride and her dress..!!!  LOL. 

 

To all the other future brides..I can tell you guys without a doubt that you will have a blast! The one thing I found out when I arrived is alot of the smaller details were not necessary...however, I was happy that I added personal touches like my wedding program fans, favors, treat bags (I ordered Jamaican treats from my now sister-in-law that lives on the island and brought the bags and bows and tags with me...spent only a couple hours before prepping them).  The planners took everything and had it all set up perfectly for me.

 

Another tip I can offer is to set up Dropbox in order to get all the pics everyone took...it's the easiest photo sharing site...it's better than a whole bunch of your wedding pix showing up on facebook which we were totally against.

 

Happy planning for the Future Brides.cheer2.gif

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
