Show us your wedding dress!

@Trace2013: Whoo hoo!  Yay for gorgeous, frugal wedding dresses.  Honestly, whether a dress is a "wedding gown" or a "bridesmaid's dress" or even just a normal white dress all comes down to what the retailers put on the label.  A lot of places will actually charge more for the EXACT SAME DRESS in white than in other colors, because they know women are willing to pay so much more for their wedding gown.  Your dress is simple and stunning, and everyone who sees you in it is going to think "bride" because guess what... you're going to be the bride!

Like many of you, I've been looking for something really simple and "flowy" without a train that would work for our beach destination wedding without having to blow the budget spending upwards of $1500 on the dress. Although they are beautiful, I'd much rather have that cash in my budget for something else than on my back all night.

When I was in the bridal shop and explaining what I wanted the sales girl were SO helpful and said "you know, that exact dress you are describing sounds a lot like one of the bridesmaid dresses we have..." I didn't want to be rude so I thought, why not? and tried it on... well. it was PERFECT! And available in white and the best part? $260!!!!!! So... Just wanted to give you ladies a heads up if you're looking for something a bit more simple and are on a budget, most bridesmaid dresses come in white and the cost savings speak for themselves! What do you guys think?? Does it look "bridesmaidy"? I haven't bought it yet, but I think its the one..  I might add a belt for the reception to glitz it up a bit but its sooo what I wanted and Im so happy! Hopefully you can see the link..

Hey Everyone,

I don't have the pictures back yet from my photographers, but I attached some of the pics I do have.  I was unsure about my dress at first, but loved it!  It was perfect!  The train was really long and got dirty, but the resort made it like new.  I thought it looked so pretty and classy being long!  The photographers had me holding parts up and it was flowing in the wind.  Anyway, thought I would share a few pics.  I don't have a ton, so I tried with what I have...

Yes, I am.  There are little things that I have noticed, but no one else will.  I am really happy with the end product.

Trace2013, other brides have also purchased bridesmaid dresses in white or ivory and have loved them.  I think this is lovely and you cannot tell at all that it is a bridesmaid dress.  You sound really excited and happy so I think you found the one.  Do not let the fact that it is technically called a "bridesmaid dress" rather than a "wedding gown" bother you one bit.  If you want to bling it up with a belt, then go for it!  Good luck and so happy you found your dress!  cheer2.gif

I LOVE this dress! Great choice. It will definitely be light and airy. A belt might be hard to add since it's not a straight waistline, but I think a glitzy headband in your updo would be gorgeous! Add some jewlery and a veil....you'll never be able to tell this was a bridesmaid's dress.

    • 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?
