Thank goodness because I think it is the most important part, and I dont have that kind of money LOL

You are very lucky!! ya I didn't choose a destination wedding because of it being cheaper more because i HATE planning but wow its its blowing through our budget more than i figured it would!! So wherever you can cut down costs you are very lucky!! I have my hair and make up in my wedding party so i save there, plus one BM's aunt is a very well known seamstress!!

Thank you All!! you have made it less stressful! 

I also went dress shopping with my girls this weekend and boy i have learned alot. You really need to shop around. I feel in love with my dress and to some $1500 is no that bad but I do! Also when the dress was discontinued in 09! I went online and us Canadians still have a downfall of finding a great dress like the Americans. Yes i could get it shipped but I might as well buy it for $1500. Anyways I'm glad I didnt just on it because i went home and on buy and sell there was the exact one for 400. Which i got her down to $360. Look i know some people think its bad joojoo ot buy a second hand but i look at it this way, the dress at the store has how many naked girls fitting in it?? At least this one was one and she is still happily married.

I did two days about 3 weeks apart, and I found my dress on the first day, but my mom wanted me to walk away and try on more, so we went out a second time and all day we both kept thinking about the dress from the first day, so we went back, and they had sold the sample, but I still bought it I didnt cry like they do on Say Yes to the Dress but I still knew that it was my dress! If you are happy and feel good in it, then it doesnt matter how much it was or if someone else wore it first it is that you LOVE it!

It's good to point out that you don't have to buy a new dress from a bridal shop. You can save a lot by sourcing one out online that's preowned. I don't think there's anything wrong with that and any superstitions attached to it. The dress I ended up going with is very new and is not available preowned as of yet.

 

I did four appointments spread out over 4 days. I didn't want to feel overwhelmed each day but I wanted to remember how I felt in each dress since I have the memory of a goldfish and they don't allow you to take photos. After the third appointment I was just going to settle (I realize now that I was settling) for one at the first shop because everyone said it looked amazing on me. Out of all the ones I'd tried on it was the best but I wasn't really into buying it and I attributed that to me never getting emotionally attached to things, so I thought it was okay. I kept my last appointment and it was there I found a dress that I ended up buying. Once I had it on, I thought, "Dang, I look good!" I turned again and again in it and like it more and more. I didn't want to take it off so I decided to go with it. There were no fireworks going off, no crying or big Ah-haa moments and visualizations of me walking down the aisle but I felt beautiful in it, comfortable and I felt it suited me. And I'm so happy I found it because I really love it!

That is sad and I'm sorry that happened. I forgot to mention I had the dress still on hold until the next day "Just in Case" cause your right when you find the dress there should be no exceptions. BUT I was very surprised how much the upsale was at this store.

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
