Recommended Posts

My mom actually got a sexy dress! haha, I love it! It has a whole cut out in the shape of a diamond a little under her boobs! ohhh lala! Its pink of coarse. My colors are pink and orange.. My FI's mom KNOWS THIS and bought a NAYY BLUE dress! I did want everyone to match at least a little. She is footing most of the bill for our wedding so I really cant complain to much, but couldnt she of at least picked a sea blue sad.gif

Jess...that's tough...hopefully they can agree on something, that makes it hard on you. I'm sorry. Can you maybe suggest something you like and say you would really like it if they wore that?

 

Island bride- that's nice of your MIL to foot a lot of the bill, but i agree a sea blue would look nicer...more beachy. Well i'm sure it will look fine and you'll be having your dream wedding, so that's all that matters. Everything will work out just fine! :)

 

simplnsweet- that would be so great if ppl would post pictures, it would be very helpful. I feel like i'm stalking peoples photos from their weddings to spy what their parents wore. Haha, sad i know.

My mum has bought a long black dress which has a black ang gold chunky buckle thing at the boob.I wanted her to pick something more tropical but im not wearing it.I bought her some gold coloured bangles to go with it and im going to find pink and turquoise to add.

She has some gold flipflops BUT im going to look for pink/gold/turquoise

LOL

Pauls mum has a turquoise, brown with white dress.Its long but my issue with her is her footwear canvas shoes "i dont think so"

Pauls dad has the same baby blue linen trousers as Paul and my boys have. He just needs a shirt white linen i guess.

I do think my mum will continue to look for another dress

MIL (in the center) wore a long periwinkle blue dress. I'm not sure what brand. Christian's stepmom (on far left) wore a long Calvin Klein deep blue dress. You can also see my bridesmaids and Christian's Aunt and Grandma's outfits in this pic:

This isn't the greatest pic of my FIL's suit, but he wore an ivory suit jacket and pants with a navy blue t-shirt underneath. He was going for a Miami Vice look (I really liked it).

i think mom's being more casual is fine, but is your dad walking you down the aisle? if so, he should be a bit more formal b/c as you said your dress and your bridal party attire is more formal. if dad is walking you, then he should blend in more, imo.

This is the dress my mom is wearing. I love it and it's perfect for the ceremony. We're having a luau reception so she's going to change into something more casual for that.

    • 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.
