The Dress, Take II

Recommended Posts

So maybe I bought my dress too early...


I bought a traditional gown this summer-- very pretty A-line dress with lace and all the trimmings.


This is what it looked like when I tried it on:




When it arrived in October, I wasn't loving it... it just wasn't ME. But I figured that since I had already bought it (and it made my FMIL cry when I tried it on), I'd work it out.


Eventually I gave into my nagging fear and went looking again.


I found a very cute dress with lace & sequins just like the one, except it was fitted. I had always wanted a fitted dress but had been afraid since I've got serious hips. See?




I know the books & guides always steer curvy girls toward the A-line dresses but I know my hubby-to-be would love to see me in a dress that shows off the curves!


This week I found a happy medium. Sparkle and sequins.... a much lighter fabric... a booty-hugging shape that doesn't make me look like I'm struggling for air.... A gorgeous dress on the clearance rack of a local family-owned bridal salon!






Can't wait to get it fitted (the top part is too big) so I can see how beautiful it can be!


I ended up posting the first dress for sale... Wish me luck!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
