Any other 2014 brides here getting an early start?

Recommended Posts

I'll probably be one of those brides wearing a 'destination' dress, but to each her own! :)
Nothing wrong with a beachy dress if thats what you want. Just sick of people telling me that's what I have to wear.your absolutely right to each is own..wish they would understand that

Hey ladies what is everyone wearing? A beachy casual dress, ball gown, a line vintage etc? Shoes barefoot sandals? I thought I wanted beachy casual but when trying on and searching I like the look of an actual gown. The so called destination dresses just don't scream wedding to me.

 

Those with wedding party what are girls wearing? Short/long dresses? Casual? Haven't picked yet but we've been trying both long and short chiffon.

 

are your guys wearing? Full jacket and ties? Button ups? Etc.etc?

We can't decide. Thinking of linen suits but just vest not suit jacket. Maybe just the linen pants and a linen shirt. Oy..just don't no. FI is worried about being hot he is always hot. Guys wearing shoes? Mine are gonna have too he refuses to go barefoot?

 

What about flower girls/ring bearer?

I think you can wear whatever you feel comfortable and most beautiful in.  I told my FI as soon as he suggested a DW that's fine but I'm still wearing a full wedding gown. It's a fit and flare trumpet style with ruching(?) in the middle. It's very simple so I added a belt which totally makes the dress. I feel beautiful and it's comfortable and I CANNOT wait to wear it!

 

My BM are wearing dresses by Bill Levkoff. There are two styles (links below)

The groomsmen are wearing light tan pants with a white button down and a pastel pink tie. MY FI is wearing the same thing but with a jacket (so a suit) and dress shoes

 

I don't have a flower girl or ring bearer but would dress them in normal wedding attire as well

 

Some people want a real beachy feel and that's awesome and great, I'm just not one of them I want a more formal feeling

I never thought I'd want a fit and flare but I fell in love with mine!! I think it accentuates a woman's curves in the right places.

 

Thank you! The girls seem to like them so that's good...

I can probably search the boards but thought I'd check with you girls quickly. I'm looking for clutches for my BM, I saw some cute ones from Etsy but didn't know if you guys knew of other websites that had cute ones.

 

I'm also looking for earrings and/or a necklace earring set for my BM. I looked on Etsy but wasn't crazy about any. Let me know if you have any ideas on where to look...

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • 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.
