Does anyone have any idea of who might have done the gown? Like most bridal shops, the only tag in the gown is from the shop- not the designer.

Nikki - WOW! THAT is a dress! I don't know who makes it. Usually their name is on the hanger strings and sometimes sewn into the dress inside. Sorry i'm no help. Its beautiful regardless so who cares! haha.

It's weird, I remember a friend asking me for a sample of my material and told me to take it from the inside seams. Her mom is making my veil and she is making my garter, hence wanting material to match color. Well, when you look inside my gown- you can't get at the seams. I know when you look at shots of the train, you can *see* the shadow of the seams when the sun is hitting it, but it's like the material has no seams exposed. I don't know HOW they made this gown. I looked for an exposed seam because that was another place I was told you'll sometimes find the maker's info- but nada. You'd think since this was a sample, it'd be there somewhere. But the only tag is for Schaffer's (a dress shop in Des Moines, IA) and the hang straps are blank. There's a style tag hanging inside the dress, but no maker's name.

 

It's funny, all this time I didn't post a pic because I was worried people would be like 'omg, what an ugly dress'. silly me.

 

Thank you for the compliment!

VERY silly! That's the kind of dress I dreamed about growing up!

yeah, I don't know how they do it either but most dresses have hidden seems (meaning the seam is inside the lining). I don't sew so I have a hard time imagining how they manage that!

So many beautiful dresses on this thread! I am SO excited to have found my dress. I just bought it and have yet to get it altered but here are some pictures! I really don't think the pictures give this dress justice :)

    • 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.
