Running of the Brides???

Recommended Posts

Love the whole review on your experience and the pics are great...thanks for sharing! Your dress is really beautiful and you really did get a great deal! Congrats!! And for the record, I get the whole trading dresses thing, but I think it's awful that brides were charging "finders fees". That's just wrong.

I know right, like I said, they should be ashamed. I'm pretty easy going (unless you ask my FI...LOL). And I can tolerate a lot. I didn't get mad when the girls were hoarding, just bummed. But the fee thing, I needed to get on my soapbox... I can't believe the employees didn't stop them, as I don't know how that can be legal. And it was all over the news.

Queen Diva- You found your dress girl! Congrats! Yay! Let's see a pic. I bet you look gorgeous.

I found my dress at teh DC running of the brides.  So for any bride that's out there wondering if they should go, GO!  It's worth it.  Just have the right attitude.  Stay open minded and willing to try on anyting that may fit.  Even if you don't get any of those dresses it gets your team excited and motivated to get as many dresses as possible for you to try on.  (and yes, please don't try to do this event without a team). As they go out and get as many dresses as they can for you other people wonder your way with trades because they hope that you haev soemthing they want in your very large pile of dresses.  My dress came to me by way of trade and it ws gorgeous.  No damages or anything that needed repair.  I am getting it taken in a bit because its kind of a non-commital skirt.  Not really an A-line not really a mermaid.  So my seamstress is making it more of a mermaid, taking off the bow and giving it a sweet heart neckline.  But when I'm done, it will be the only dress like it out there, period.

 

Anyway, thanks for letting me rant.  I'm glad otehr brides had a great experience as well.

peterpanpixiedust: Your dress is gorgeous and for that price, wow! Congratulations! I agree the finder fees are ridiculous, always someone trying to capitalize on something that is suppose to save you money.

Thanks for the kind words.  I had such a hard time getting in the spirit of dress shopping.  No matter what I tried on it just seemed like another white dress.  when I tried this dress on my sister and best friend, who are maids of honors, cried.  And the mom's who were there shopping with their daughters just said, "honey you better get that dress."  So I got it.  Everyone just thought it looked great on my skin tone.

 

But now I'm started to get really excited cause I took it to a wonderful seamstress and she took off the bow, is making the neck line a sweet heart neckline and made the skirt a real mermaid skirt.

 

So now I love it!

 

I say all of that to say if anyone is thinking of hitting the sale I say go.  Even if you don't find the dress  of your dreams, you can always turn a good dress into the dress of your dreams cheesy.gif

    • 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?
    • Getting married in 10/2020, anyone had a recent wedding here? Asking for some help
    • Hi, I know prices change year to year- Anyone have 2019 or possibly 2020 prices? 
    • My husband and I was married 18 years ago. My husband hates dressing up and truly I had no idea to that he feels embarrassed in dress attire. I told him the only way I would marry him was in tux jacket and pants shirt. Well he wore it but after wedding hyperventilating and nearly passed out. He felt totally humiliated and had horrible memories of our wedding. He has never allowed me to show our wedding photos to anyone and simply it ruined the wedding and has caused tremendous amount of issues over the years due to the fact I made him wear it. He now wants to redo the wedding to wash out our wedding memories and create new. Wants briadsmaid groomsmen everything. He wished he had simply went against my will wore something different. So wants to redo everything included everyone and what they wore but change what he wore. Me dressed in my original wedding dress. I so wish I had never posed him into a suit on our wedding day.its been 18 year nightmare.  He simply wishes to completely recreate a memory. My question is it okay to completely redo our wedding exactly the way it was except what he wears? This has been 18 years of hell he xant get over it. He cant even stand to look at photos and we have never watched the video. Thank you all Sarah 
    • Hi! How did everything turn out? I just booked mine there for next November and would love any tips you have!
