Show us your wedding dress!

Recommended Posts

I absolutely love lace-ups. Many of us buy are dresses way in advance of the wedding and the lace-up allows the dress to fit perfectly regardless of any minor changes in weight and without alterations. That being said, I actually chose a dress that doesn't lace up. I was considering having it converted, but I think my dress would loose a bit of its charm if I did. But, I was originally planning to purchase a different dress that was lace-up. My mom watched the sales person lace it up and then repeated the process herself to make sure that she knew how to do it.

All of you ladies look so freakin' gorgeous!! i love how different everyone's dresses are, but each one is just such a perfect fit for the girl who picked it! Amazing!

 

 

You're so sweet to ask... Second fitting is not until March 14! It's going to look like a completely different dress, I want it done now LOL Tell me your progress, and remind me of your dress choice?

Oh ya I also wanted to add that certain dresses just look better as buttons and others better as lace ups, especially ones with a fuller bottom, like a ballgown look better as lace ups.  More sleek clean lined dresses look better with buttons. I'm actually suprised at how many women on here prefer lace ups. I could only imagine how well they fit, I never tried one on so I dont know. I am hoping though that my dress creates that skin tight feel too.

I love buttons; they were actually a requirement in my dress selection. I didnâ€t try on a single lace-up/corset style dress. I didnâ€t think it embodied the look I was going for.  I do have real buttons though which might get a bit time consuming, but Iâ€ll have plenty of help!

I finally had an opportunity to try on my dress. (I've been waiting for it since the middle of August!) I fell in love with it all over again. Best part is I don't need any alterations. It was a perfect fit! My veil and hair pins also came in so it was a happy day.

Well stated kellygrrrl

 

that is mt exact opinion and my dress has a hidden zipper also, though I wouldn't have been a againt button up either.

    • 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?
