HI Dani HI Kim, 

 

Had a bummer last week so haven't did any planning had two people very close to me pass away so been trying to deal with that.  Needed  to get my mind off things so popped in on site.  I see you girls have been busy dress shopping.  

 

Kim, 

 

great dress choices I really love the bottom on this one http://jlsprinkelbug.files.wordpress.com/2011/09/cabodress.png.. did you decide against the one you purchased on BHLDN?  They are all beautiful.

 

Dani,  awesome that you found the one and you got that feeling that they say you get when you try it on and you know it's the one?  I always wondered if it were true You look amazing.   Not a dork at all it is supposed to be a suprise for him to see you on that day so you take his breath away.  I think it would be great idea to get certified here first I believe it's a lot cheaper than doing on island ..

So Sorry about your losses. That really stinks. I will keep you and your family in my prayers.

 

Yes, it is true. I went looking with a specific dress in mind (not the one I got) and when I tried it on and tried on other dresses it just felt like I was trying on dresses even with the veils. Let alone I never knew how heavy those dresses really are. Then I tried on this dress which was much lighter and not so heavy and when I looked in the mirror, even though it wasn't a dress I was originally interested in, it look beautiful. Then she put the veil on and I looked in the mirror and I thought OMG I look like a bride, I am getting married" and I felt like I could see myself wearing that dress all night. It was me. I didn't decide to get it at that moment I tried on others that were runners up and then tried that dress on again and when I put it again I knew this is the dress. So that saying is true. You do know I always wondered if you did and I even though while trying on others that this wasn't working for me. But in that dress when I looked in the mirror I looked like a bride and so it became the one.

 

Now I love it and I feel like the pictures even on the site don't do that poor dress justice. As far as a dork, lol I wanted to show him so bad but I want him to see me and I want him to think how beautiful I look. I will say Sottero & Midgley carry alot of beautiful dresses. I am even not going to get another dress. I just want to stay in the dress all night and its so comfortable and light weight. I am very happy with it.

Oh no! Tyrebride, I am so sorry :(. I hope you feel better soon. 

 

I am returning the one from BHLDN. After looking at other dresses, I was able to find ones that I liked for the same price and for cheaper. It was absolutely beautiful though with the most exquisite lace detailing. But, I'm with Dani, I think I want a dress that makes me feel more like a bride! I also am not sure if I'm going to know if the dress is the one. I'm checking out one more place and then will try on my top choices again. I am pretty indecisive. 

 

Dani, this dress is absolutely beautiful on you! It's perfect for a beach wedding while still feeling bridal. I love the sweetheart neckline and the material. After trying on dresses, I'm finding that those dresses can be very hot and heavy. I'm also dying to show my fiance what I've tried on already. Its going to be really hard not to tell him all about it. 

 

Tyrebride, I'm excited to see what you end up with!

Thank you so much and beleive me you will find a dress that you feel a bride in. At first I didn't either and I just felt like "oh this dress is nice" or oh "wow I love this dress but Im not sure if I can move in it". One thing I definitely agree in is so many of those dresses are so darn heavy. It was ridiculous. I kept thinking how the hell am I going to be walking around in this dress and not be sweating terribly. So finally when I did put that dress it on, it was made of Chiffon and was so light compared to the others it was great. It's hard to see on me which is why I sent the Sottero link it has beautiful swarvorski crystals just in the right places and it wasn't too much but wasn't too plain. It was perfect and when you put the dress on and look in the mirror you're first though will be when you look at yourself "wow this is beautiful" then you might not be sure. A good place will put the dresses you like aside and make you try them back on again. Finally, at the end when I put that dress back on I felt excited. I wanted her to put the veil on again and it was it. Kim you will know believe me and if you don't feel like you love the dress and that you feel confident about how YOU look in it. Don't get it.

 

There are no carriers of Sottero & Midgley in Pennsyvlania. Well I think theres one L & H Bridal somewhere in the northeast. But what I did was I looked at Sottero's site first and I found all the dresses I loved (My favorite at the time was Landis by Sottero & Midgley) but after trying it on I didn't like the piece inside the dress I could see it bulked up in the chest area and I didn't like that, even though the dress is stunning. After you find the dresses you like you can call L & H Bridal or Kay's Bridal in Maple Shade, NJ. I went there to Maple Shade. I read reviews on them and some people were saying the lady was mean, and she wouldn't let you take photos in the dress, they didn't show the prices, the dress had no labels. I must say this was so not my experience. Every dress I tried on was Sottero & Midgley except one and I seen all the labels on the dress, she read the price from the label and as you can see she let me take a picture in the sample. But I think there also a shop in Cherry Hill. I will tell you this Kay's Bridal had a huge huge selection of dresses and you should definitely find something there. I do know this that I was told I came at the perfect time and that "we" (those getting married in May) really need to start picking out yoru dress because it takes quite a few months for the dress to even come in after ordered and thats before alterations.

 

Don't settle for something that you don't "feel like a bride in" When you look in the mirror you should feel like "This is it" I can see myself wearing this all night. Honestly, when I put that dress on I knew that I am not buying a second dress. I want to stay in that dress all night and just bustle the back lol

Also, DO NOT SHOW HIM THE DRESS YOU PICK lol. It's a killer. I have been dying to just show him. But you know what it will be worth it when he sees you and sees how beautiful and stunning you look because if you don't show him hes excited himself to see you. If he sees it, well you'll still look great and he'll love it but he has an idea of what to accept.

Oh and P.S. the Sottero site after you look at a dress you specifically like has a link on the right that says "Find A Store" click that link and put in PA and NJ and you should find PA retailers and South Jersey retailers since only certain stores are permitted to carry the line.

Just bought a dress! It came down to three different dresses (after checking out like 5 stores). When I tried on this one again, I just knew it was the one. So excited! My head got cut off in this pic. It's also surprisingly light!

I went to Van Cleve in Paoli. I had to go to the bridal salons that I could get to by train because I don't have a car in the city. They were really great though!

    • Unfortunately, pregnancy yoga training is a time of extreme. It's all part of the deal; even the stress is often a normal effect of the hormones that are raging through your system. But you have to keep stress at a controlled level because you have to think of your health and that of your baby. Here are some tips on how to keep stress at bay during pregnancy: 1. Evaluate your activities. Pregnancy is a time of many changes; your body is changing and your life is also about to change. You are transitioning to becoming a new mother. While you're at it, it's high time to change your activities as well. Evaluate your activities by checking your schedule. Perhaps you lived quite a busy life before. That can be pretty stressful and may even put your pregnancy at risk, so it would be best to slow things down a bit now that you're pregnant. Pregnancy has its way of affecting your mood and making you feel tired all the time, so there will be times when you just won't be productive. So instead of piling up on tasks, choose activities that you can drop or delegate to someone else. 2. Break the bad habits. Whether you really were trying to get pregnant or pregnancy crept up on you, somewhere along the way you will face the need to break your bad habits. What are these notorious bad habits you definitely have to say goodbye to during your pregnancy? · Smoking · Alcohol consumption · Too much coffee or any other beverage that contains caffeine One good way of breaking bad habits, even ones that you've had for years, is subliminal programming. Subliminal programming means re-training the mind; it works in two steps: · Removing negative embedded factors in the subconscious Since this method communicates directly with the subconscious, which is responsible for directing our actions and behaviors, it is more effective than consciously deciding to stop smoking or drinking. 3. Take up meditation. If you haven't tried it before, now is the best time to take up meditation. There are many tips and instructions online as well as many books on the subject. You can learn it on your own or join a meditation class. Meditation is the art of emptying the mind to relax both the mind and the body. It is also very effective in regulating emotions, which can be hard to control when you're pregnant. If you have plenty of time to spare, join a yoga class. 4. Block the horror stories. Every woman who's been pregnant loves telling her pregnancy stories to non-pregnant or newly pregnant women. It's their way of saying "welcome to the club." While good advice is particularly helpful, most women tend to share horror stories, or stories of how stressful and emotional pregnancy was for them. You may also use subliminal messages to train your mind to block these negative stories, so you can focus on the positive things about your pregnancy. There are many positive things, too, the biggest of which is the new life inside you, so you won't run out of good thoughts to nurture in your mind.   Safe and Easy Workouts to Do During Your Pregnancy The main rule of thumb when exercising while pregnant is to modify your workouts to suit the trimester you are in and to honor what is happening to your body. What is deemed appropriate for your first trimester is certainly not for your third trimester. However, there are several exercises that you can perform right through to the end. Let's examine the first trimester. You are just beginning your nine-month journey. You may be feeling a bit more tired, perhaps queazy, but you may not even be showing a baby bump yet. At this time, if you have already had a workout program in place, you can continue with what you've been doing.  Some doctors may not advise any lying down exercises at any time during your pregnancy, but speak with your physician to determine if this modification is necessary. Appropriate exercise for the first trimester: • your normal routine (within limits) • walking • swimming • low impact aerobics (keeping heart rate low) • strength training • yoga As you move into your second trimester, you may be feeling a surge of energy but your body is showing the pregnancy more and certain workouts may not feel as good. Around this time, lying down is not totally recommended and keeping heart rate low and core body temperature low is important. The importance of abdominal and pelvic floor strength should be highlighted throughout your pregnancy, so if you haven't already started, Kegal exercises should be implemented in all workouts you do. What is a Kegal? The pelvic floor muscles are like a hammock of muscles located at the base of your torso and under your pelvis. To do a Kegal, simply engage the muscles that you would use to urinate. Keeping these muscles strong may make for an easier birth and less pregnancy related incontinence. Appropriate exercise for the second trimester: • Kegal exercises • pelvic tilts (with head elevated with pillows) • walking • swimming • easy yoga • strength training (lighter weights) As you move into your third trimester, you are now getting to the top of your pregnancy weight which may change the way you stand, how long you can sit, and your sense of balance. Aches and pains from your changing body are probably felt more now. Workouts now become about making you comfortable and making sure you simply maintain what you have. A safe abdominal exercise, which also makes your back feel great, is an all-fours cat stretch and contraction. To do: on a rug or sticky mat, go down onto hands and knees. Keeping back straight, simply pull your abdominals in towards your spine without altering the straight position of your back.. Repeat 10 times. From there, round your back up, like an angry cat, feeling a stretch over your shoulders and spine, then release. Repeat 5 times. Prenatal yoga is great for elevating your mood, may help you sleep better, and decreases pregnancy aches and pains. Just make sure you speak with your doctor first and remember to never start a new program while pregnant. Keeping up with what you're doing is super and will make for an easier birth and a faster recovery.
