SOOOO...ladies need your help because you always have great advice! :) Last weekend at my bridal shower, my sis(and MOH) suprised me with a "seashell wreath" for my wedding dress. Our friend had made it. I think it was very sweet and she got pretty close to what I was looking for but....I don't love it. In fact I only kinda like it. It was not what I was looking for and I didn't know they were doing this so i didn't not get to put my input into it at all. It's less glamorous then I had hoped and looks more "cutesy". It also doesn't have an actual "veil" on it which I was really wanting. What do I do??? I feel terrible and it is giving me a lot of anxiety. With only 13 days before we leave I am feeling a lot of pressure. Do I just go with it and wear it even though it doesn't feel right? Do I reveal that I don't love it and see if something can be changed? Or do i just look to buy something else? Please help me!

What a tough place to be!!! Sorry ... Is it easy to modify it to something that you like? I think your sister and friend will understand if you make some modifications. Completely discarding it may break their hearts. Just my 2 cents. Good luck :)

I know I don't want to just disregard it! It's just odd to me that someone would make a bride a veil without her input! I think it can be but with so little time I am freaking out!

I myself have struggled with making "other" people HAPPY on my day...

 

Its a tough spot to be in.......but as I have grown older I have discovered more on making myself happy and not worrying sooooooo much about doing what "others" want me to do.

 

Its a super tough spot, but look at the anxiety you are going through wanting to please them and feel uncomfortable at your own wedding.

 

I understand that once in awhile you should do for others, I am not saying that...

 

What I am saying is that it is your day.....Make it your day!!

 

I believe the hard core truth can and usually is HARSH, I dont believe a lil white lie is harmful when you use it to spare others feelings.

 

I could be opening a can of worms here, but you reached out and I wanted to let you know that I do not think you should have to wear it.

 

Gently tell them that you had purchased or made one without knowing you were getting one for the shower and hadnt found a way to tell them that and it has taken you this long because you have had such anxiety about it and not wanting to let them down and its important to you that they feel appreciated for what they have done...........I think they will understand completely.

 

Anywayz ladies, that just my lonely opinion.... blink.gif

    • Yes, this happens all the time. One thing to consider is maybe to have the wedding at an off-site location where all your guests can go. There are several in Puerto Vallarta and Cancun Mexico. Most hotels offer a free wedding, but if a majority of guests are not staying there you'll be paying for not only the day pass, but for the food and beverage for each outside guest. Thanks - Sadie  
    • When it comes to your Wedding Clothes, it's pretty normal to be flooded by numerous choices that are available in the market like clothing style, pattern, fabric, and colors.  Absolutely, I liked this dress and I will never miss wearing this outfit for the wedding. Thank you for sharing this post.
    • Hi guys! Thank you for sharing the valuable information. Some students think, “How do I write my book review?” and are confused by this sort of task, and others are happy to do it and enjoy the writing process a lot. Such a difference in perception and attitudes is caused by the ambivalence of this task.
    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
