Quote: not me, but it was an easier image to manipulate and our bodies were similar enough and I was curious about converting my dress to a sweetheart. But this is if it helps or changes anyones opinions this is me in the sample back in October.  I assumed people knew it wasn't me since the person in the dress is white and I'm not.  But I'm 5'10" and all legs (torso of someone of is 5'5") You look beautiful in your dress!!! Gorguese! I think you'll look great either way with the sash. I have a fit and flare dress that is similar to the top and middle of your dress. I am fairly short at 5'5 so to elongate me I chose for the sash to go just under th bust line (empire) ...and I too am havin them put the sweetheart into my neckline, I think it reall softens the look which I love! You look fantastic! 700

Beautiful!!! Definitely the natural waist!  I don't think you need to do anything else to it.  It's stunning!

LOL@ she's white and I'm not...sorry, I'm oblivious at times and didn't even look at your profile pic as i was writing!! hahaha!

Ummm...I would actually like to see how the belt looks a little higher. It may work too. Either is great! YOU LOOK STUNNING! And I'm having dress regret as I stare at that pic cuz that's very similar to one that I really wanted!! LUV IT! 

And def do the sweetheart! It will add so much to it and def adds a feminine touch!

No worries...  I will probably play around with placement of the sash on Saturday during my fitting, but since I'm flying solo I wanted to get some feedback from the lovely ladies of BDW. And thanks for your $.02 on the neckline.  I think the determing factor will be whether or not the scalloped adge can be maintained as that's definitely a detail that I don't want to lose. But a sweetheart neckline is the only dress requirement that I had that this dress doesn't meet... we shall see?!?!?!

 

I understand dress regret, that's how I ended up with this one! I'm sure you look beautiful in your dress. Have you posted pics on BDW yet?

Yet another beautiful lace dress.  You must post pics of yourself when you get one.  We never look like the models and tend to look better.

 

Yes, please find me and say hello.  I would love to meet a BDW - May 2013 - Now Jade Bride!

Ooooh, I like it! Lace seems to be trending for destination weddings this year. And to think that I originally didn't want one, and didn't try a single one on until the 4th bridal appt.

that is exactly my story too, I liked the look of lace but not for myself, until the lady brought in this dress and I put it on and its like the dress chose me. I would have never given it a second look as it has a somewhat sheer mid section, but I put it on and had that moment, and my mom cried so I sort of knew that was it.

I haven't posted a pic yet but I will. I don't know why I have this idea that my dress has to be kept secret. LOL. Some of my colleagues are on here and are always scoping things out. The last thing I need is for them to tag me on FB or something. But wateva...I will post one soon. Or maybe after the wedding. Or maybe I'll just post with a threat to anyone who knows me. Hahahah! JK!

Mine is lace also. I LOVE Lace. On the wedding shows they always say lace is old school but I think that's what I love about it. And I always think they look amazing in it. It's romantic and soft and girly. Hmmm...all the things I am not. But it's one day of my life where I can transform myself and channel my inner Beyonce so I'm going BIG!! :-)

 

Anyhow, I'll say it again...You look amazing in that dress!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
