I'm sure your dress will turn out beautifully!! I can't wait for you to get it!
I hope so - its fun to try them on to though so Truro should be fun. Sackville is definitely closer to us but as long as you find something you end up liking Truro is worth the trip. I orginally planned on going to Montreal or Toronto before I came across this site so hopefully that will be unnecessary now lol

OMG, I LOVE your dress -- it's absolutely stunning. I'm a big fan of the one shoulder! Congrats on scratching such a significant thing off your list :)
Thanks hun - funny because I always pictured myself in completely strapless but all the gowns that i looked at from the time I got engaged the one strap/asymmetrical gowns so I am definitely a fan of that design too. They seem to be hot of the runway this season. LOVE it!

Bonnie-

Congrats! you have a quite a bit done. You are way ahead of the game.

What resort did you choose? Sascha Gluck is in our top three photographers too. He does very nice work & competitively priced.

No but I did come across that site as well. I went with Leah at foryoudresses.com, just because she had more testimonials and sent me all kinds of previous work she had done. I found her super professional - so I have to go and measured by a pro-seamstress as per her request (in 10 different places at that lol), send that info to her and then I'm looking at about 1.5 months from then til I should get the dress. I love, love LOVE that short white dress. Is that for your bridesmaids? That is HOTT! Very chic :-)

Lindobride,

We picked the Royal Playa Del Carmen, because it is located right on Playa Del Carmen, so we can save on cab if we wanna go clubbing or shopping. Its sister resort is next door, so guests on budget or with kids can stay there and come over for my wedding.

 

Sascha Gluck is great, similar style as Elizabeth Medina (of course her pics are very stylish and nice too, but it was over my budget), my god brother is a pro-photographer too, we picked Sascha after going thru a lot of portfolio and price/quality comparison. Ivan Luckies is good and very very good price too, but for $1000 more I would prefer Sascha, because I prefer his takes on light and contrast. Del Sol too was on my list, but again they are a bit over my budget. As life continues after wedding, I can't really too overspend.

Thx FutureMrsRobart! Actually my sis picked that dress, because they aren't tall (but want to look tall, so long dress was out of consideration), and they are size 0 flat chest, so they want to get something to create an illusion. hahaha

I will definately check on the Leah's site.

Nicy - love those shoes! I think you really have got to go with what you are comfortable with. I am wearing high shoes for ceremony etc and then i am taking flats with me too! Plus i'll need the high ones for the AHR!

 

Bonnie - love your BM dresses! I can't wait to go BM dress shopping! I am thinking i might put my sister in ivory like me and then Kate and Laura in pink. My sister is "bigger" than the other girls and very concious of it so i think this might make her feel more comfortable. I'm going to talk to her about it when she gets back from the US. She is stuck out there due to the Ash cloud and UK airports shutting :o(

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
