    Hello Everyone!

    I am excited to start reading all of the great posts this forum has to offer. I feel very stressed out because we decided to get married Jan 15 2011 and there is so much to do!

    If anyone can offer up some advice on travel agents or how you got all of your guests a good rate, that is my first concern. We are planning our wedding from Chicago (most of our guests live here) and will be going to Excellence Punta Cana.

    I am also looking for some good places to get bridesmaid dresses for all sizes of women...I have six girls who are short, tall, skinny, plus-sized and everything in between =) I am not so happy with selection at David's Bridal ...

    Any advice is GREATLY appreciated!!

      Congrats and welcome to the forum! There are tons of places to get great BM dresses. When I was searching I found great dresses at Dessy Group, Bari Jay, After Six and others. My ladies picked a Priscilla of Boston dress in the end. Happy planning and good luck! Oh btw try using the search engine you'll come up with lots of finds for BM dresses.

              Welcome and congrats on the upcoming wedding! TAs can be very helpful for the coordination of travel and for getting good prices. They should be able to help you choose a resort that matches your budget and your needs.

              As for bridesmaid dresses, in addition to planning my wedding, I'm a BM in two weddings this year. I'll be wearing dresses from Alfred Angelo and J. Crew, both of which have decent selections. I also like the wide variety of Dessy BM dresses.

              Good luck with all your planning!
