Post your SHORT wedding/reception dress!

Recommended Posts

I'm so in love with this dress for the dinner after we get back on the boat (cruise wedding). I don't think I'll want to wear a full wedding dress all evening but I want to wear something that will still make me feel like its my wedding day cheesy.gif

Thanks! The jacket gives a little versatility. I thought it was attached, but was pleased to find out it wasn't. The only thing I need to figure out is if I can justify spending big bucks on a second dress. I have plenty of time though...

Yeah you still have plenty of time to think about it, you could always look into the knock off option too, if your tight on your budget for a second dress.

A knock-off would be great, or a used one maybe! I want to wait until I get a little closer to my goal weight before shopping or buying since I'm not sure how much it can be altered if I buy in my current size and lose more poundage (thank you weight watchers). Can't wait to go dress shopping!

Oh I know exactly what you mean Erica! I was the same way I didnt want to even look at a dress until I got down into the 140's and really I waited too long to go dress shopping! But I was so worried about the alterations and such.  Im told most dresses can be altered down to 2 or 3 sizes depending on the dress and the fabric.

Same boat here - I put off shopping hoping to lose a few pounds (not so much worried about alterations, but I just didn't feel good with these extra "holiday" pounds sticking around).  Now I found out I'm on the verge of having to do a Rush order because I waited so long.  UGH!

hmm... I hope i can lose more than 2 or 3 sizes (I have it to lose, I'm not out of my mind here LOL). I should be close to my goal by this summer (by which point you'll be an old married lady! jk jk!)
 

But that means I might not have to wait as long as I originally though. Thanks, girl!!

    • 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.
