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.

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?

    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
