I'm in Lisle, That's too funny!!

I'm not sure where you got your dress, but if you need alterations, I just found a great seamstress. She's all the way in Schiller Park (by O'Hare) but she has rave reviews on the knot and all the wedding sites and her prices are great (much better than the bridal salons). Her name is Mary Catomy. If you want her contact info let me know!

She said anywhere from 50-400 depending on the complexity. I need a ton of alterations since it's a sample & the previous seamstress told me it would START at 350!

yeah..Alternation can cause an arm and a leg. My friend who bought a sample La Sposa dress for $1000, instead of $1700 plus taxes.

The bridal shop told her that if she wants to change to a lace up back, it will be $100-$200, to add 3 buttons so that she can lift the train for dancing, it will be $20 per button, make it shorter by 1 inch ($200). Ka$hing..Ka$hing...

Hey conosur....

To cut a long story short we have ALWAYS wanted to go to Mexico for a holiday but have never quite been able to afford it, and from day one we had always said we wanted to get married abroad, So when it came to choosing a destination there was no competition really.... part way through deciding we did look at other countries (Jamaica, Aruba) which were cheaper than Mexico but as its a once in a life time thing (hopefully,lol) we just thought why not, lets just go where we want to go, not opt for 2 best :-) And there you have it :-)

So Mexico here we come pinkie.gif smile29.gif pinkie.gif so excited... xox

What about you? What made you choose Cartagena? So how is married life treating you :-)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • 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?
