Show us your wedding dress!

I'm a fan of the corset back because it does give a little bit of wiggle-room in terms of weight-gain/loss...I have 4 days of good eating and drinking, I will need it!!!  Plus to me, it just has a romantic look to it...


 

And I always knew I'd be a Maggie bride and most of her dresses are corset-backs cheesy.gif

OMG!  March 14th is right around the corner - I cannot wait to see this dress!!!!  

 

I found my dress the 2nd time out....nothing that I was looking for.  It's a Paloma Blanca #4115.  I recently started to doubt my choice until I saw some of the girls on here with similar dress styles who recently tied the knot which put my mind & heart at ease.  I will repost a picture.

So... I posted a couple weeks ago I had decided to order this (which turned out to be a discontinued Maggie Sottero- Cassia):

Then someone convinced me to go to try on some similar styles and make sure I liked it.  And I did like it, but just didn't give me that "this is it!" feeling.  So I figured while I'm there, let me try some different styles to see if there's anything I might like, and me, who swore I didn't want anything strapless, or anything "foofy", fell in LOVE with this:

Like seriously, was dreaming about it all that night!  And they had it, off the rack, in my size and in ivory, which matches his linen suit PERFECTLY!  You can't help but think it was meant to be =)  The plan is to take in the top ever so slightly, shorten the length a bit (for sandals/barefoot in the sand), and shorten or just totally remove the train (it's partially tucked under in the photo).

    • 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.
