I bought my dress!

Recommended Posts

Thanks ladies!!! It is a relief since I had myself a deadline of 7 months before the wedding to have it ordered.

I went in on Saturday, but could not decide between the two. The other had crinoline and a fairly large beaded train I was not crazy about.

It had the V in front and in the back, but not as deep. Same designer.

 

Ann, mlb36 & Court, thanks for your honesty... I knew I could count on you ladies. I think it is that it is hanging there, not poofed out, but without my hair being 'bigger' that is probably what it will do. Nothing.

 

I am going to try and cancel it. I am looking at the site where Ann had hers made.

 

I know it may be windy at the Dreams gazebo, but I do feel like I need a veil, it made me feel like a bride.

 

Do I need a shorter one? I think we established it definitely should be lighter in colour.

honestly, if YOU love it though, that's what matters! you sounded like you didn't though ...

 

i got mine longer (to about my knees, maybe) and 1 later, not very much fabric because i didn't want it to block the back of my dress - but i still wanted the veil for the "bride feel" i wanted! the way i looked at it, if it were shorter, and ended around the top of your dress in the back, then it would distract from the dress. but a longer, simple veil would allow you to see through it, see the back of the dress - but still make you look like a bride! does that make ANY sense?

Ya, I agree with Ann. The back of the dress is so pretty, I think if you got one longer one, with only one light layer you'd just be able to see through it and it wouldn't distract the eye from the dress.

Yes, that does make sense... I just wondered since I have that loooooooong chiffon on the back. I want simple with no edging, yes one layer.
Looks like they have everything on Occansey!

since i don't have my pics yet - i had to go through my slideshow to find some examples. i didn't want a big, heavy veil, but i actually thought it would bother me if it were too short - like i thought it would be too bulky or something. my veil was pretty sheer - which is what i wanted.

 

if you look through my slideshow you can see that the veil was pretty see through, and didn't block the dress - look at slides 37, 45, 47, and 50

they really do! and i had seen a veil that i liked, but didn't want to pay $600 for! so i just described it to them, they gave me a custom quote, and they made it. so if you have something specific in mind - just let them know, or send them pictures!

    • 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?
