April 2011 Brides

Recommended Posts

I had my first dress fitting today! It went awesome. It was nice because my BM Jenn got to tag along and she wasn't able to come with when I bought the dress. :) The bad news is I found out my super sexy shoes are much too tall for the dress.. and I don't want to try to add length to it. Boo! Back to square one.

 

Now invite making tonight! Yay!!

Brandy - I love the dress that you guys decided on!  Both are very cute actually!  Can you do me a favor?  Can you measure the heal of the sandals you bought (that I bought the tangerine's of) and tell me how high they are?  They look higher than the normal flip flop, and I don't believe I'll have mine in time for my fitting next week.

 

Tris - I'm glad your fitting went so well!  Mine is next Saturday!  That stinks about your shoes though, ugh, back at it!

 

Lua - Thank you for the brochure link, I'm working on them now!

Not a clue Teira, Ive always wondered that myself lol, which is the reason I paid someone to do all that stuff for me, bc I could never figure all that out!

 

Erin, well I checked the site and it says the heel height for the shoe is 2", and I measured my shoe and its more like 1 1/2" to be extremely exact its like maybe 2 or 3 marks over the 1 1/2" mark but I certainly wouldnt say 2" I would allow for the 1 1/2" unless for some odd reason each shoe varies!

Brandy, I really like that suit.  Where did you find it?  My fiance doesn't seem to keen on wearing a suit, but I may be able to get him to wear this one, it's really perfect for a beach wedding.  Great find!

Thanks Ladies!!!

 

Tris I cant wait to see your invites! I'm sure they are gorgeous, you are so talented, I absolutely loved your STDs

 

Francine, I found that suit online, they carry this brand at Macy's, the brand is cubavera, but they dont have any in stores right now! They do have them on Macy's website on sale I believe, but if you have a few things to order its best to go directly to cubaveras website bc if you order 5 wedding items you get 40% off your entire order!  But if you just want the suit only its probably best to go to macys.com since its on sale, you wont get the sale price on cubavera.  They sell 2 styles of pants as well, so if hes going for a more casual look you can get him the linen drawstring pants, Im going for the one pleat pants which are still really relaxed and loose as well.

Laura - So...bad news, apparently the 25 free brochures is just for those of you north of the border.  I don't know what I'm going to do now...  I hate to order them and then have them go free...I may try to make them on Word and see how they print.  Thank you though!

 

Brandy - Thank you for the info!  I had seen the 2" on the site, but I figured since you had them I'd ask because you never know until you get them.  My seamstress said it didn't really matter, but I wanted to still ask just to be sure!  Also - nice job on the checks!!  You were very accomplished, and that was just at the end of Saturday!

    • 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?
