Definitely was an impulse buy from all the excitement....so I grabbed my future sister in law and we went back to the bridal shop I originally bought my dress at...I walked in with a gown in mind...had them pull it and as soon as I saw it in person it was a no...so I asked for ANY fit and flare gowns they had...mind you when I walked in I pointed out a gorgeous Vera Wang gown but didn't think it would go with a beach wedding...my future SIL made me try it on anyway (and it was a fit and flare of course)....so long story short I tried on about 15 more dresses and even my original dress again...and I was IN LOVE with the Vera! Nothing compared to that dress, I felt like such a bride! (tears are welling up in my eyes as I think about the feeling now)...so then I asked if they would take my unaltered dress back and YES they would!!! Store credit toward the new dress...I had to bring my dress back the next morning....needless to say I could not sleep at all thinking of this dress!!! Ahhhhh!!! So the next morning I grabbed my dress and my future MIL and we headed to the store...as soon as that Vera gown was on me I was so happy again...since it was New Years EVe they actually had noise makers and all that jazz and made a huge deal of it being "the dress"...I have to say that helped seal the deal! Then the seamstress took me to the back room so she could pin my dress for the bustle and I was surrounded by mirrors...wow! That was it...the tears started flowing!!! I felt so beautiful and happy in this dress! So girls....I FOUND THE ONE!!!! I wish I could post pics to show you...I paid a lot more than I wanted...about $900 more than the other dress, but it is worth every penny! If anyone has dress doubt, go look for that dress that makes you feel like a bride!!!!

Can't wait to see pics! It'll work out tho. Just like you said, either you'll find the one or you'll affirm that you made the right choice. Finding a dress online that strikes you that way is the worst, because if you had tried it on you may have thought it looked awful and never thought about it again. Now you are left with the "what if?". what matters is that you are marrying "the one"!

The biggest problem is I found the dress I really wanted online before I went dress shopping but it ended up being one that you can only buy from overseas. I wasn't able to find anything like it here....very disappointing. Then I started watching EVERY SINGLE Say Yes to the Dress show....and that just kept putting the doubt in my mind...and the nights my fiancé would sit and watch with me he'd point out dresses he liked and that even further made me want to change my dress. I think I'm going to go try more on. Maybe I'll find "the one" or maybe it will confirm that my dress IS "the one"!!

Ok I finally figured out how to post pics!! I have been using my IPad and it doesn't give you the option to post pictures like if you are on the computer...so frustrating!

 

So here is the 1st dress that I ended up returning... the next post will be my new dress :)

And here is my new DREAM dress!! :) It looks like I am 7 feet tall in this pic but that's because I was standing on a little platform. They hemmed it a little bit for me.

The picture doesn't do it justice at all. I so love this dress, and it totally makes me feel like a bride!! I can't WAIT to wear it!

I LOVE the new dress, I had eyed it up before I got mine! And you look great in it. I actually think you looked pretty in the first one too  but the new dress does have more of a wow factor. And more importantly, you love it when you put it on.

That's the thing, I know the first dress was beautiful and it looked nice on me, but I just wanted that Wow factor and this dress really has it! That's Vera for ya! Haha I'm so excited to have a designer label dress at such a low cost.

    • 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.
