Ya I thought of that. Might get a friend to try it on this weekend. Also, there are these sort of bra insert thingies in it (like a bathing suit has) and they are freakishly close together. I am hoping that a seamstress and take them out or put them further apart because I am not sure what person's ladies can be pushed that close together...hahaha.

A suggestion: Can you have someone else try it on?

The wonderful woman who owned the Briadal Boutique said you have over 4 months, don't stress...wink.gif and if worse comes to worse...it can be taken out.

Taken out?!?! Hell no!!  There was no way I was having my gown taken out!!!

 

So as the new year arrived, I swung into action.  Started a cleanse program that my hair stylist had amazing results with and exercised like a mad woman!!!

It paid off ladies.  This week I went for my very first fitting, 18lbs lighter and 23.5 inches smaller.  I was pretty confident the lining in my gown would no longer hug

my hips.  I slipped into the gown, looked into the mirror and almost teared up....I did it!!!

 

I shared photos with you all back in Dec, and if you don't mind...would like to share with you all once again. 

The first two are my Before: Dec photos and third is my After: March photo.

Forgot to snap a photo of the back of my dress this week, but the corset is now to the end and will be taken in so the ribbon can be shown.

 

Signed....a Very Happy Bride-to-Be

Norma...you look amazing and very happy!!!

 

So in the middle of wedding planning, my FI and I decide to buy a house.  I'm thinking we are a little crazy but what can you do?  Going to a couple open houses today with my parents so they can help us decide.  I never realized making this decision would be that difficult.  Almost worse than deciding on a resort! Lol!!

Congrats on your decision to buy house! It is very exciting news.

I found for me buying the house was just like buying my wedding dress. Once I was in our house, I knew it was the one. I did not even want to look at any other houses :D.

I hope it will help you.

Hi Ladies,

 

Just wanted to give you a heads up that I am posting some post wedding items for sale on the Buy/sell/freebies thread.  Many items I bought I actually forgot in a suitcase at home and some are leftovers from the wedding.

 

Good luck to everyone with their upcoming weddings!!

Hi Norma,

I remember seeing your original dress post and you looked beautiful then, but wow, good for you for you! I admire your hard work and dedication, I know weight loss isn't easy.

Recently I purchased my wedding gown from a sample sale, and it's a couple of sizes too small and I too am bound and determined to lose the weight vs. having to let it out. I've got the working out part down pat and have been researching cleanses and I would love to know about the program you followed. Would you PM me the details pls? Thanks, and congrats again!

Sarah

Wow it took them quite a while. I received mine back in January. I used mine to change mine and that was it.

You dont need to have it recognized anywhere. I called service Ontario and they told me that I did not have to do a thing with it, except to use it for a name change. I would guess Qc should have same rules.

    • 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?
