Ladies..Pick My Dress 4 Me!!!

Recommended Posts

I did the most common thing an impending bride can do...second guessed my dress choice. So now, I'm completely torn. I know its my decision ultimately and its a big one that I should make for myself. BUT I want to see what you ladies think. It will give me a better idea of what impression each dress could ultimately make. I'd be happy with any of them of the three, but its a three way tie right now.

 

The photo is of my original dress choice. Its chiffon, so lightweight. I figure its very "destination". The other two dresses are more traditional styles which I've noticed still look beautiful on the beach.

 

I'll post the links for the othe two dresses. The details are the killers. If you click on the smaller thumbnails it will blow the images up. I'll be getting ivory no matter which one I choose.

I like #1, but I tend to prefer more casual dresses. It would help if you had pictures of you in the dress.

I voted number one, but without seeing a picture of you in it, it's really hard to tell.

agreed! Do you have any pictures of you in the dress(es)?

I like your original dress the best for a DW, but that's because I'm not much into "traditional" dresses.

LOL! Life with the quads isn't much different from life with any amount of children. I do what I need to do, just have to schedule it in advance! For the dresses, they arent all going to be available in one spot to try on unfortunately. The first dress is a Maggie Sottero, and I don't believe theres a shop here in my town that carries it on the rack. The other two, maybe...I'll have to call tomorrow and find out. I haven't done much yet, just looked around online to see if I liked something.

So far, looks like what my grandmother always said was right. "Go with your first mind." lol. Gotta love them southerners.

OK, first things first... you have quadshuh.gif I noticed the four babies... but thought maybe you and all your friends had children around the same time. Quads... that's so amazing!

Next, you NEED to try the dresses on! Well... not true for everyone, but I had SO many dresses picked out on-line and when I tried them all on I hated almost every single one of them! Quite amazing actually. So, start calling around and find some shops that have them.

You make a really good point, Trisha. I really should have been thinking along those lines. The "what if" factor is huge. I might look horrible in all of them, then where would I be? (on this board, crying for help)

 

I'm on it first thing in the morning.

I picked #1, but I also like #2.

 

I do agree though that you've gotta try them on. I had my own favorite style in mind, but NOTHING in that style looked good on me ... so the dress that I bought is totally different than I envisioned, but looks fabulous on me. So, be sure to at least try on a few different styles to find thene that fits your body type best.

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
