Show us your wedding dress!

Recommended Posts


did you try oncewed.com? lots of brides on there didn't even wear their dresses - they just changed their mind. even a larger size could be altered. may be worth the cost just to try it, and then you can always sell it again if it doesn't work out. but I bet that when you go shopping, the consultants can pull similar dresses to see if you like the style on. : ) good luck!

Not sure I can get it out of my mind...  I do have a few others that I like and will be trying but really had that gut feeling about this one.

Try on similar styles.  What they look like in magazines and online on the models is not always what you find when you try them on.  I planned on avoiding anything form-fitting like mermaid/trumpet/fit-and-flare but found that they look the most flattering on me.  You never know until you try them on which will be the one.  Good luck!

sure! I love it because it may not be that something was ever worn (or even altered), and you could save a lot of $$. : ) good luck on the hunt! your dress is out there. : )

I went in for my 1st appt and saw the 2nd dress on a mannequin..I had to try it on and fell in love. After a few months of fighting with my mom and family...I went with what I wanted and now I'm wearing the 2nd dress..1st one is now for sale if anyone loves it : ) The 2nd one is way to big in these pics : )

The first dress is pretty, but the second one is a stunner!  Who's the designer?

Yaay! Which one?  Maybe I know already, but right now I can't think of another WToo bride here (I'm a Dulconee girl)

I'm not sure of her name..I know it is a private label designer. I asked at my last fitting but I forgot to write it down. I'll ask next time I go for a fitting in a few weeks and get back to you

Thank you ladies for the support in my quest of finding "the one" and lesee - so sweet of you to post those links for me, I will definitely check them out!  I know someone also asked who the designer is, Marchesa...  I took the liberty of asking them myself, just to make sure the bridal shop wasn't  completely sure.  We'll see if they answer!

Hey everyone!! I am thinking of buying this Maggie Sottero Destination dress(rd1086)! I LOVE it!!!! But there is another dress by  Alfred Angelo that I also adore! They are 2 different dresses...I'd love to have anyone's opinion about which one I should chose! My family hasn't been much help with deciding because they love them both too!! lol

    • 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.
