So far, the best ones I've found have been at BCBG.  I've had my eye on this one for a while:

Good point!  I'm getting marring in Jamaica in May and hadn't even considered the dress needs to hide sweat.  Thank you for mentioning that.

 I LOVE the Maggie Sottero dresses.  I never considered a tea length but the more I look at this thread, the more I consider it.  I do have great legs...

 

Why are you ladies doing the non-traditional/shorter dresses?  What made you decide?

I tried on the Maggie Sottero Isadora Marie, which is just the longer version of the Isadora Ann (they didn't have the Ann in store).  I really liked it, but my mom won't even hear of it!  She says the short one looks like a prom dress.  (I bet if I had wanted to wear it to a prom, she would've said it looks like a wedding dress!)  I personally love the idea of a shorter dress - just think - you don't have to worry about getting sand all over it, you can go to the washroom solo, and it would be soooo much more comfortable. Unfortunately everyone I took dress shopping thinks that the fact that it's a destination shouldn't affect the dress you wear, and it should be big and poofy and bride-like. Sorry for the rant, but the point is I really do love the Isadora Ann, it's gorgeous and IMO perfect for a DW.

As far as good buys go, this dress is $800+ on the Maggie Sottero website but I saw it for less than $150 on www.milanoo.com.

Went dress shopping in person for the first time this weekend and I'm not sure what to do.  Here is the one I tried on and really like - the model looks kinda trashy so its hard to get a good concept, but it looks great on (and not as short as it is in the pic).  The back is traditional with a corset lace up so it does seem "bride-like" and oh so flattering.

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
