I know how you are feeling! I've been on the dress hunt for months now and have tried on ALOT of dresses! I still haven't had the "one" feeling but have come to realize that perhaps I won't and my choice will be based more on what feels the most comfortable, is the best fit and style for my body type and fits the idea of what I'm looking for. Def go out and try a bunch on so you can find out the things that don't work for you and it might help make your choice a bit easier.

Here is the dress that I'm considering...really its the only one so far that I've put on that I've really liked and has stuck with me. It could be the one!

I know I have a long way to go on planning since I've just started but I am torn between these dresses. My bestie loves this Mori Lee dress:

Meanwhile, my SIL thinks this Mori Lee dress is more DW-appropriate:

However, during my bestie's search for bridesmaids dresses (she's getting married in June), I fell in love with this Watters dress. I think this is slightly above my range ($850) but that dress has "me" written all over it.

Funny that all 3 dresses are different yet so beautiful. That's going to be tough to decide. Too bad I have to wait another month until FI tells me where he wants the wedding to be at. All I know it's not Mexico (grr... I like Dreams Tulum), DR (double grr... most of my family won't be happy), or USVI (yay, don't wanna get married there).

I do not have any pictures of me in my dress. I tried it on but was unable to take pictures until I made a deposit. The dress was sold off the rack the day before I made my deposit so no pictures till MY dress comes in March sad.gif So here it is on the model!

Here is my dress, its a Maggie Sotero Lavina. The first time I put it on, I finally felt like a bride, just enough bling but still me.

I'm ordering it from eBay Store - gianinarbridal: wedding dress bridalgown, party evening or bridalmaid, flower girl dresses They're also changing the back to be a corset for me. Once they make it (to my measurements) they're going to send me proof pictures. I'll certainly post pictures here once I get it. There are a ton of other places who will make it too. I contemplated using wedding dress,prom gown and bridesmaid dress by landy bridal but they quoted me more money ($420). Which still isn't bad at all but I figured the quality was already going to be less than a real Maggie so I might as well save some additional money. Doubt there will be a huge difference between the $420 knockoff and the $180 one.

I was going to get a Justin Alexander dress...but it turns out i am one of the many brides who fall in love with the exact opposite of what they thought they were going to look good in.

 

I went to try on a few and totally fell in LOVE with this Paloma Blanca. The pics really don't do it justice and I will be adding a flower/feather thing to the side of the rouched waistline!!

 

Sooooo excited!!!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
