Show us your wedding dress!

Recommended Posts

Okay, so I posted my dress here a long time ago but it was before alterations and the worlds tiniest photo. Hopefully these are a little better/bigger.

 

The dress still needs to be taken in a little and we're adding a little boning so that the dress won't creep down. The last think I want to be doing is hiking it up all night.

 

Oh yeah, and sorry about the sad face. I was really hoping the dress would be perfect this time.

I got my dress at David's Bridal. It was the first dress that I tried on...I wanted something simple and flowing. I'm having the dress altered a little. I don't really want the train even though it's a small one. I am thinking about removing the straps as well.

I just got my dress this weekend. I posted another thread talking about how I did not get that "in love" feeling. But after trying on like 18 dresses and HAVING to pick one cause my wedding is only 4 months away, this was only one of two that made me smile. The picture does not do it justice, it is truly a beautiful dress. I am having the straps removed, I walked around the store with them tucked in and decideded I definitely liked it better without. (PS. I borrowed someone elses picture who has the same dress, hope that is okay?)

Here is mine....I ordered it back in August and got it in November....the back is a corset style and I'm taking the panel out for the wedding because I figure we're in Cuba! Who needs a panel? It was the third one I tried on and I love it.

Finally, I get to post pics of myself in my dress! I had my first fitting with the seamstress over Christmas and my best friend took a couple pics for me!

It has to be taken in a pretty good amount and then I'm also having the train shortened to a sweep train. It currently has a zipper back that is going to be converted to a lace-up. I'm so excited to see it with the alterations!

here it is - sorry the pics are bad the salon has a "no picture" policy, but since I was buying the dress they let me do it in the dressing room :)

Hi all! My ceremony dress is a Casablanca (1870) in ivory. I bought it on Ebay (*gasp!*) from a bridal store that was selling off sample gowns. (Magic Wand Bridal on Ebay is phenomenal, they cleaned the dress for me, packaged it perfectly, and then sent the extra straps, buttons, and the tags were still perfectly intact when I received the gown.) Please ignore my ridiculous expressions and bad hair, lol.

My second gown (reception and TTD photo session) is a Maggie Sottero Couture gown (style Amy) that I just came across the other day. I have not yet purchase the dress, but you can bet that this one or one very similar will be coming to Mexico with me - it is about 1/4 of the weight of my first dress!

Everyone looks so beautiful in their gowns - I have always believed you have to purchase the dress that you FEEL the most gorgeous in - and don't let yourself be restricted by the 'rules' (e.g., curvy women shouldn't wear mermaid, tall women shouldn't wear ball gowns, etc.).

    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
