It was on the American site. I've mailed Alfred Angelo over here to see if they are going to be getting it.. fingers crossed!

Thanks for solving the mystery on where its from! x

Well now i have added some blue sparkles which i hope isnt too much, and added some aqua ribbon to the clip section so it covers where i stuck the flower on.... what do you think?

I have obviously still got to go for some sort of hair trial to have it put in properly but you can maybe get the general idea?

 

Is it too tacky?

 

Thanks

Arrr Nicy i think it looks really lovely. It adds that personal touch! So clever and it looks lovely in your hair now so once styled it'll look great! I'm going shopping tomorrow (shops shut today as it's easter sunday) so i might pop in a few shops and look out for hair bits ;o) x

I'm stuck with jewellery..... As my dress has sparkles and detail at the top i dont know if a necklace will be to much or not...... I might have to shop around see if i like anything and then just try it at my fitting? I dont want to spend loads to then not wear it! I may just go with a braclet and earrings.... It's hard deciding isn't it?

Nicyx - i dont think its tacky at all - looks really good. I am going to try and do something similar for my BM. You have inspired me now!!!! Just a shame all the shops are shut today.

 

Michelle - i know what you mean about jewellery as my dress is very sparkly around the middle and i have a tiara so dont want to go OTT with the 'bling' - FI mum works in a jewellers so may see if they have some cheap v small pendants.

Awww, thanks ladies... Really really pleased you like it :-) Im made up now.... Glad i have inspired you josietoms :-)

 

As for jewellery, to be honest if it sparkles at the top i would be inclined to go with just earrings and bracelet :-)

But like you say you could just go and get a cheap neckless to take with you on dress fittings to see what you think then that way your not spending too much money on something you may not wear and then if it looks good you could go buy and the real thing :-)

Or you could maybe go with a neckless that dosent sparkle as such but still makes a statement and wear a matching bracelett? Maybe pearls or something as they can be sublte but still add that extra something? Just an idea!! or like josietoms said a V. small pendent on a neckless?

 

Sorry in reply to an earlier post Michelle, yes i definatly think everything will be more settled when its all booked :-) Funny really as today nothing is freaking me out at all, but yesterday i was worried about everything!!! haha :-)

 

How are you girls getting your dress to the resort, are you taking it as hand luggage? Im definatly taking me as carry on as i would be so so worried about it the whole journey there... and i would be worried about it "getting lost" Ive read a few different ideas on this, and was just wondering what you guysa are doing?

Yeh i just dont want to look OTT. I dont think i'm going to have a tiara although i like them. I will prob go with a flower or something. I will take your advice Nicy and josietoms and try a pendant/necklace at my fitting....

As for getting the dress there...... My friend who wed in Mexico last Sept was told she could NOT have her dress as hand luggage! She had to pack it in her suitcase!!!! When i bought my dress the lady that owns the shop said they actually pack the dress for you. In a hand luggage case with special tissue paper that prevents creasing! She said in the summer it's like Heathrow with all the cases as DW's are becoming more popular. I told her about my friend not being aloud and she said just dont tell them it's your wedding dress! So that's what i'm planning to do. She said "you will be suprised what we can fit into a hand luggage case" so i have faith in them to do it for me :o) Sorry for jabbering on lol....x

Hello Ladies!! I've finally made a decision on a resort due to so many available options. I choose Moon Palace Golf & Spa. I've read wonderful reviews on this forum from past brides about MP. My WC strongly recommended them as well. I've reserved my date and signed a contract with MP. Now just anxiously waiting for a confirmation. Although my wedding isn't till October 2011, I like the idea of early planning for there is so much to do. Can't wait to receive my confirmation so I can start making my STD's. Thank you all for posting your experiences and/or suggestions. It's been very helpful. Keep the reviews coming ladies!!!

 

-Sheila

    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win.
