Here is what I chose....I pray I can KEEP reminding myself.  My wedding is not until April 2013!  love.gif

Thank you Joanne!!!  That is so sweet of you to say!  It's reassuring to hear from someone other than my Mom (although her name is Joanne, too!!)  LOL!  cheesy.gif

Here is my dress story.  5 years ago while my best friend was searching for her wedding dress, and I was helping, I came across a dress I LOVED, but it wasn't quite her style.  3 years ago when helping my sister look for a dress, I showed it to her, but again, it wasn't her style. This year when it was my turn to look for a dress, I decided search for this dress for me!  I quickly found it by google, than started calling bridal stores near me.  The 3rd store I called told me they had it and it was on sale for $99!!  I was on my way out of town and had no time to go and see the dress. I asked if they could hold it for me, but they said they couldn't.  So I decided to buy it over the phone!  $99, I could just resell it if I didn't like it on!  The following week, I went in and tried it on!  I LOVED it!!   And that is the story of how I got my dream dress for $99!

As you can see, it needs alterations!  and those are not my wedding shoes - though they were my Islamic wedding shoes..that's another story and another dress :)

Thanks Sweet Bride 2012!!!  This is so not what i was looking for.  I had always said I was not much into mermaid style....boy was I wrong.  My friend told me that sometimes the dress picks you not the other way around!  This dress made me feel so romantic...I sure hope I wow my Bill!    Did you get find your dress?

oh elissae - you are gorgeous!!!!! that dress is awesome on you. WOOHOO for finding the dress! 

 

not sure it's any consolation - we got engaged in July 2011, and are planning our November 2012 wedding. the time has FLOWN since July to now. I ordered my dress in late November, so I'm hoping I only have 6-8 weeks before mine comes in. 

 

I am sure time will fly for you too! happy planning. cheers.gif

Oh Allie!   Thank you thank you thank you!!!!  The woman at the bridal shop said I was smart to get now since it would be close to 8-10 months until it comes in and that gives me ample time for alterations, fittings, etc.  You are right - I am sure the time will fly by.  Look at you - your wedding is 10 months away!!!!

 

Happy Planning to you, too!  Is it all coming together now?  I have just started!  :-)

    • 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
