oohh - I'm super pumped to see which dress you picked! how exiciting!

 

out of curiosity which stores did you go to? I'm guessing the Bridal Centre is where the Maggie dress is, but what is the one that wouldn't tell you who designed the dress?

Well, the manager was kind of a jerk about it. She went on and on about how important "true" service was to the place and then when I asked the designer of the dress, she told me "Oh no, it's the owner's policy not to give the designers". Umm ok. I was a bit irked. It's true, the service there was the best of all of the places I've been, but if you're worried that the bride will end up getting the dress somewhere else once she knows the designer (as she made it sound, that was the case), then why don't you trust your own service??! Your store's service should be good enough for the bride to feel confident to go back there!

Yes, the Maggie is from the Bridal Centre - thanks for the suggestion. It's a little tucked away, but with GPS, it was almost no problem! lol. The service there was ok. I had Carma, and she was nice, but not great.

The other store was Beautiful Bride; the one place I've been returning to the entire process. I meet Simone there every time, and she's AMAZING. She really is. I almost feel bad not buying a dress from her. I think she's told me the designer before, because I remember looking up a dress I found there online.

So, yes - I did get the Maggie dress. I went to that place first, and didn't even bother going to the second place. I LOVE it. I honestly had no idea it was a Maggie when I tried it on, I just didn't want to base any decisions on designers - I went with an open mind. I love Maggie dresses though, so I'm not surprised.

I tried the dress on in blush, and it was pretty - but I'm not a "pink" person. I got it in diamond white - which is pretty much just white (very, very slightly off-white).

For some stupid reason, we didn't bring a camera at all. But, when it comes in, we'll do a full-on photoshoot right there in the salon! lol

Woohoo for buying dresses!! cheesy.gif

I've heard that stores don't want to give out the designer info cuz they don't want you to use the information to find the dress elsewhere possibly for less money! It's another tactic of the bridal industry!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
