We thought about just letting him see it, but our moms had more to say about it than we did, so he and I decided he wouldn't see it in advance for them. They're not pushy with wedding stuff for the most part, but its something they were pretty vocal about LOL

I say keep the strap too. It really helps to tie in the bottom of the dress. :)

Yeah, I never heard of that either. You never know until you put the dress on. If you feel absolutely beautiful and can see yourself walking in the dress, then it's the one!
 

MissBliss and ckrn, I love your dresses! You both look so beautiful!

Wow!  That's wild.  I never heard that - I fell into that 70% category.  I totally ended up with a different dress than I envisoned!

JessiTaylor,

My friend and I got married in Jamaica a few days apart. My dress was sheath and hers was puffy. As it turns out my dress was heavier and warmer than her big puffy dress. I guess size does not always mean warmth/heaviness... If you know what I mean...

So if you want to wear puffy dress you should go ahead and wear it. As Janet said, if you wear bikini you still will be hot :D

Good Luck!

I love your pictures! I was just thinking about what you said about not discounting the bigger dresses -so you weren't too hot?! I love some of the bigger dresses but im worried about overheating and generally being a sweaty mess =S

 

Fiance has suggested i wear a bigger dress for the church ceremony and legal ceremony (and photos) and then something simple for the reception so im thinking about that - seems a bit extravangant though!

My husband and I went shopping for my dress together.

He is my best friend and I cared only for his opinion on it :D

Thanks :-) It was kinda awkward, so I couldn't get any pics, but we chopped out the hoopskirt, a bunch of crinolines, turned into a semi-sweetheart neckline and changed the train to a sweep train. I am so excited to see how it looks at the second fitting!!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
