April 2011 Brides

Recommended Posts

I'm so happy to hear this mocha!!  Even if you didn't find your dress, hopefully her comments about the one you had made give you a little more reassurance!

The bridal shop manager was fabulous and really helped a lot. I didn't find a dress, but showed her the dress I had made and she told me to stop worrying because I would love that one.

My custom dress was released from Vancouver customs a couple days ago so it should arrive at my house any day. I won't be able to see until I go home for a visit in a couple of weeks though. I'll make my final decision once I try it on, but it certainly helped to have an unbiased opinion. Especially since she knew how much I was willing to spend and told me not to buy another dress even if it was from her.

Honest, sincere, and caring people making me happy!  Sounds like that's what you found in the lady last night!! Yay!!  You'll get to see your dress soon...well, in a couple of weeks.  What made you decide to do the custom dress??

I did the custom dress because I couldn't find anything that I liked and figured that for the price I could take my chances.  If I need any other alterations, I will bring my dress to the bridal shop I visited last night. I'll just have to keep my fingers crossed that I like the real thing.

Hi ladies:)  I am officially an April 2011 bride!  After attempting to plan a DW in Mexico, we happily decided to elope (shhhh it's a secret!  yaay!) to the Turks and Caicos.  We'll get married April 12th or 13th, depending when we can get our license.  April 13th will be our 3 year anniversary, so that would be fun.  Life is so good since this decision:)

 

We're flying down our photographer from here and are super pumped about him and his work.  He's going to do a video to show at our AHR of our wedding and our trip. 

 

I ordered my Watters dress a month ago, then made a fatal bridal mistake and tried on another dress on a whim....and fell in love with another dress.  I thought about it for a few weeks, then bought it a few days ago.  I LOVE this dress, even more the 2nd time than the 1st.  It feels amazing on.  So now I'm a 2 dress bride (ha!).  I think I'll try to sell my 1st dress b/c I can't imagine wearing it now that I have MY dress.  I'm definitely NOT trying on any more dresses:)

 

We've attempted to take our engagement photos 3 times now, only to cancel due to our crazy weather here.  Last night was attempt #3 and our wind speeds were 25-30mph.  Not good for hair!  We're going to try again Weds or Thurs this week.  I'm getting anxious to get our STDs out!   No one but my family and my best friends know that we're eloping, so we're going to word our STDs and invites as our "wedding celebration".  We plan to take a fun photo with our passports during our engagement session to be sent out while we're in the Turks & Caicos to our guests announcing our elopement.  Our AHR is 2 weeks after our elopement.  Can't wait!

 

Okay, so there's my introduction:)  I can't believe how rapidly April is approaching!

Greysgirl - Congrats!!! Sounds like you've had some obsticles, but also sounds like you have been able to figure everything out to work the best way for the two of you!  How exciting!  Good luck with your engagement pictures!  Weather is so weird some times, but I'll cross my fingers for you!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
