Brady-  What a great choice you have!  They both are gorgeous!

 

I made a fatal bride mistake and tried on more dresses AFTER I'd purchased a dress.  Grrrrr.  And of course, fell in love with another dress.  This was my 1st choice:  http://watters.com/product.php?coll=wtoobrides&showid=2559

 

I loved the way this dress felt.  It was English net, and I loved how flowy it was.  But, I couldn't get the other dress out of my mind.  I stumbled onto this dress by complete accident.  I had worked all night on call at the hospital, was exhausted, wearing the same scrubs I'd been in for 26 hours, and had to stop by a Best Buy to get a new Iphone holder.  So on my way out of the Best Buy store, I noticed a new bridal store just adjacent to it.  I walked in and saw my dress...and had to try it on.  I loved it.  It is completely unlike my 1st dress, but I couldn't get it out of my mind.  I thought about it for a month and went back with one of my best friends to try it on again.  When I came out of the dressing room, she started tearing up and said, "Darn it!  I was hoping I'd hate it because I liked your 1st one!".  So, I became a 2 dress bride.  This dress is not beachy.  But it's completely me.  And my FI will love it.  I can't wait to see his face with me in it:)

    • 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.
