Dress Shopping

Recommended Posts

I had the same experience!


My FI and I had agreed on all the things we didn't like in a wedding dress - and what wouldn't look right for our beach wedding.


I tried on several of the dresses that had all the things I was looking for - and they were beautiful... But then my fitted asked me to try one on for her - It had EVERYTHING I didn't want - sweetheart neckline, strapless, very sparkly and lots of netting under a big A-line skirt (everything FI has said that he hated) and it looked amazing - far better on me than anything I had picked out for myself...


So I went back to FI and asked him what he didn't like about the dresses - turns out it was another wedding we went to where a friend was wearing a dress with all those things and she kept yanking it up during the wedding, and then did it up so tight that she had a back roll allong the top edge of her dress!


Anyway, so I explained that that was just how it was done up, and he said then he thinks it would look good on me!


Men. Stress.


The point of the story is that sometimes guys attribute things they dont like to the wrong thing... You FI may not have like V-necks coz the woman he saw looked flat chested - when that has way more to do with the woman than the nackline :)


Best of luck with shopping - best advice is to have an OPEN mind. agreeing to try on anything was the best decision...

I feel your pain. My FI is very picky and seems to take a while to used to new clothes for some reason. Very strange.

So I think I am just going to go with what I love and hope that my happiness will make him happy too.

I say if you find a dress that you feel beautiful in and looks beautiful on you then I think your FI would think the same thing when he saw you. Every body is different and Im sure he will think you look amazing!!!

    • 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
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
