February 2012 Brides!!!!!!

Recommended Posts

New bride to the thread! Wedding is Feb 3, 2012 at the Jellyfish, staying at Majestic Elegance. We booked Julia Eskin for our photographer.

I am having a dilemma with my dress! I tried it on in ivory and I bought it in white at my mother's request....now I don't really care for the white! I want to order it in ivory but of course that is going to cost more and then I have to worry about selling the white. What color is everyone else wearing?! I am trying to figure out what will look best in the sun... I tan pretty easily and will be in DR four days before the wedding. My fiance is Irish and has really fair skin!

Congrats and welcome to the thread!!!!! We are getting married on the 4th and staying at the colonial! We were going to book Julia but she unfortunately was already booked so on her suggestion booked Katya Nova who we are really excited about using!  

 

I never paid attention to the colours I was trying on until it came time to order the dress.  Luckily the shop I bought from had a similar dress to mine in white.  I tried on both and HATED the white!!! I couldnt believe it as I LOVE white t-shirts etc and expected to buy a white dress but I just liked the ivory so much more.  I was really tan when I tried on too (it was in the summer) and like you I tan easily.  That being said, this is NOT the case for everyone and each individual person has their own preferences! There is actually a whole thread dedicated to this and some more tanned people much preferred the white while others said no they preferred ivory.  Likewise very "pale" people said they found ivory was better for their skin tone while others with the same type of skin chose to go with white.  I think the colour is TOTALLY dependant on personal preference and no one elses opinion in going to help you decide.  You need to figure out what you are most comfortable in!

 

Do you really HATE the white or is it just starker than you remembered?  My best friend got married in July and after the fact I asked, was your dress ivory?  In fact her dress was diamond white but I didn't even notice ( I was MOH lol) I think as long as it compliments you and you are comfortable in it then it will look great! What is going to look bad ona beautifully sandy beach with the crystal blue ocean and sky as your backdrop?

 

 

Just got the call tonight that my dress has arrived so now to plan a trip to go get it!!!!!!!!!!

We'll be neighbors!! Congratulations!  

I went to the store twice this week to try on my white and the off white. I ordered the off white today!  So, now I have a dress to sell :)  I just posted in one of the "white or ivory" posts about my decision. This website has been SOOO helpful! I found the Jellyfish and Julia through it. I love both Katya and Julia's work and am so happy they are in the DR! I read one of your posts about phil s. on another thread and I can't agree with you more! He wasn't really our style (although he is a great photographer) but felt that was one of our only options, I was so happy to come across Julia and Katya in this website (what did we do before internet!)

    • 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?
