Two Dresses??

Recommended Posts

I know some of you girls on here have worn different dresses for your TTD and wedding as well as for your wedding and AHR. My problem is a little different. We met with our priest here last night and he wants to marry us in the church BEFORE the wedding in Cabo. I was thinking we would do it afterward but he's pretty strict and basically gave us two dates. One is the weekend right before our actual wedding at Cabo Surf. Which is ideal because then we can continue to celebrate and not have to worry about any of the legal stuff. BUT, my FI's family is a plane trip away and I don't think they'll be able to make it up the week right before we leave for Cabo.


I kind of got off the topic but I need help deciding what wear to our church wedding here. I don't want to wear my wedding dress because I want it to be really special in Cabo in front of all our family and friends. I do want to wear something "bridal" though. I'm already having trouble because I really want our Mexico wedding to feel special but it's important for us to get married in our church too. Am I making sense? I could buy a second dress on ebay. What I really am looking for is one of those little lace jackets that you wear over your dress with a sash. Any ideas?

OMG - you're getting married the day before me in Cabo. I've been looking for another BDW bride that would be in Cabo the same time as me. (Sorry to highjack your thread.)

I think you've got several options. A few of which include ...


Buy a dress of eBay (I got my TTD one on there for $76) ... or just find a nice white/ivory dress that is fitting for the type and style of both your church and personality.


If you want the cute jacket/sash ... why not get a long (or shorter) strapless dress that a sash will complement ... and then a similar small jacket to wear over it.

    • 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?
