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.

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
