        It is basically the dress that I shown on this thread a few weeks ago.
        But I make it strapless with no sleeve (the collar and sleeves are a bit hot for a July wedding in Mexico), and add some beadings at the empire waist area to define my waist/bust area..since I am very skinny, and very flat or my FI called it very "sleek".
        It is a mermaid style plus an A-line tulle on top of the mermaid . The appliques, lace, paillettes of the first dress with the shape and the waist beading of the second dress. I like it because it is mermaid style, but flowy, and forgiven..if I have a little beer belly after a few beers.
        I ordered it with a wedding dress manufacturer in China, because it is cheaper ($410), and it is tailor made to my measurements. One of my chinese friend's wife ordered the San Patrick's Palma, and after alterations, they chopped off a lot of the mermaid tail (because she is like 5ft tall)...she looked like a squid/white tube from the front, the back/catheral train was still very beautiful. That is the problem with alters ..sometimes, the dress don't look the same after a lot of chopping and cutting.
        It is the first dress in the first youtube video, and the last dress in the second youtube video.

          Kerry,
          I saw ur dress on the other thread. It looks amazing! and the price is GREAT!
          I didn't order from the same vendor, because my dress is a bit more complexe, they quote me $180 (more than 50% off than what I paid)but the pics of previously made dresses in appliques, laces, crystal were not that wow. So I went with another one. I am so happy for you! I hope mine will turn out as great as yours!

            Hola Ladies! I am also a 2011 bride! We got engaged in December and we have officially decided to do a destination wedding. I have spents hours reading posts and trying to decide where we want to have the wedding. Has anyone checked in to Gran Caribe Real in Cancun for weddings? Their packages seem good online. I have to find somewhere that is reasonably priced and allows little ones for my nieces. Any tips will be much appreciated!

                  Hi Sweetie,
                  I am getting married at the Royal Playa Del Carmen, a sister hotel of the Gran Caribe Real. The wedding packages are the same for all the Real Resorts, some have a Chapel, most of them have a Gazebo. Their onsite Wedding Coordinators seem to be very very good, but I think they are closing their Michigan office (which was very helpful for anxious/demanding brides like me to ask questions). Their menu looks good, I pick the Eternal Romantic Package, and may upgrade to the Luxury one, because there are so many things that I don't need in the luxury one...
                  There is a thread for Gran Caribe Real brides on this forum, so you can lurk to see other brides reviews.

                    I do like it in the second pic though only because i think it would be a lot cooler for you to get married in :-) xox
                    That is exactly why I ordered it strapless like the second pic (July in Mexico is HOT), even tho..in the video, the collar and sleeves don't look that hot and heavy!
                    But I really like all the lace, appliques of the first one...so I also ordered a 4 m long veil to have the same appliques and lace as the dress. I guess the dressmaker will spend a lot of time sewing those appliques on the tulle..heehee
