Show us your wedding dress!

Recommended Posts

I have not bought any dresses online before.  I saw some of those sites when I was looking for my wedding dress and the thought actually crossed my mind because they definitely are listed for soooo cheap!  But I was worried that maybe it's kind of a knock off of the actual designer, and for myself I wouldn't really mind, but I am probably planning on selling mine afterwards so I definitely wanted the real thing.  I would just be worried of the quality of the dress, like the fabric and stuff, especially when you go to make alterations with it. So for me I would probably only order it from the actual designer.

Very pretty!!! I love that sash.  I also bought my gown and added a very small sash to it at the bridal store.  When i went to order the dress and and purchase the sash, the sash was $450.00 !!!! There was no way i was spending that on a little piece of fabric, apparently it cost this much because it was silk.  I found this lady on etsy, (whenlovehappens) she is an older lady from CA who makes bridal sashes and hair flower accessories for the day also.  I sent her a picture of the sash, the bridal store actually let me take a picture since I was buying the dress,  and the lady said she could match that perfectly.  She is making me a sash and also a flower to put in my hair that matches the flower on the sash for a total of $82.00 with shipping!!!! She will also allow you to pay 50% of your payment until she is finished with your sash and sends you pictures so you are sure you like it, then you will pay the rest!  Hope this helps!

This is my maid of honor the day we found "The dress" woot.gif I plan on adding some kind of sash to it. I really like this one I found from Etsy.com

Not sure if you are talking about "knock off" or "replica" dresses but there is a great thread about them "post your knockoff questions" this should help answer all your questions about ordering online from a dress maker overseas who does "replica" dresses!

Bulldogs11,

 

What is the sellers name on etsy? I'm interested in a flower for my hair and she sounds pretty reasonable.

    • 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?
