You look absolutely gorgeous! I got a dress that is pretty formal for the beach, and I think anything goes for your wedding!

Its going to arrive in Feb and I'll alter it then :D Can't wait :D I know it's kinda large for a wedding in Jamaica ... but it's all tule at the bottom and I'll be removing a layer of crinoline anyway. PLUS its only one day of my life - I dont mind being a tad warm!! :D "YoLo" !

Yes we do!  Are you adding a bustle on yours?? If so what type?

No I am not adding a bustle. I am actually taking at least half of the train off and taking out the tulle underneath the skirt so it is more flowy and hangs. Not sure if the makes sense but the bridal consultant showed me how it would look and I loved it! More simple and easy to walk and dance with :)

I would love to see the finished product, when are your alterations?

For sure! The dress should be in this month or next month, then I will get it altered. I bought my dress in Portland (I live in Colorado) and I am still deciding if I am going to get it altered where I bought it or bring it back and get it altered here. So I might not have the final product until January (with making trips). But I will definitely put pictures up when I do!

Muffin,

I just realized I can post a picture without me wearing the dress! So even if I do get it altered there I can get a pic around October :)

Well, here is the final product! I wish I had a more full length photo...but the photog images aren't in yet.

 

A few words of advice:

If you can get away with it...DON'T wear crinoline. I'm telling you, I had sweat running down my legs, and I smelled like a field worker b/c that sucker doesn't breathe at all! I peeled out of it as soon as my beach wedding was over, and just wore the dress w/out the petticoat for the rest of the night. I wish I had saved the $70 and not bought it.

 

I did not transport my dress in the hanging bag. I knew we'd have to carry it all over the airport, and put it on a shuttle...and it was heavy and cumbersome and I had to contend w/that crinoline monster. I also heard from some people that the flight attendants aren't always so accommodating when handling wedding dresses. At the suggestion of my aunt (who is very smart) I rolled up the dress, in the Davids Bridal bag, and packed it in a suitcase by itself with the petticoat and my shoes. As soon as I got to the hotel, I unpacked it, and hung it up in the closet. It looked perfect, and we ironed the sash with the curling iron..lol. So on the way home, I did the same thing...and was able to pack some of the souvenirs we brought back with us. Totally worked out perfectly and in the end only cost me $25 for the extra bag. Totally worth it to not have to worry about it, if you ask me.

 

I'm thinking I'm going to sell it. I loved it, and it was perfect...but really, what am I going to do with it now? I felt so beautiful in it...and never dreamed I'd be able to pull off a strapless gown. I'd kind of like to pass that feeling on to someone else.

 

It's a bridal 20W, but taken in about an inch on either side and in the back. I wear a 14-16 in street clothes. It could easily be taken in more if needed to fit someone w/less of a chest or smaller waist. It's a gorgeous, light organza, and almost looks like linen. Perfect for a beach wedding.

 

If anyone is interested, I'd be happy to make a deal!

    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
