Ok so I've had a bit of dress drama lately. When I got my first dress we were planning on a simple ceremony in Maui with 10/12 people tops. But soon enough we had all sorts of people that wanted to go and it got to be too involved to plan a wedding and everyone's trip to HI. Not to mention expensive!! So we moved our ceremony and reception to Now Sapphire in Rivera Maya Mexico. With a new change in venue and a more 'upscale' feel I was feeling unsure and uncomfortable about my dress. So I was able to find another dress that made me feel more comfortable, beautiful and more importantly bridal. Here it is!!! It needs to be altered but I LOVE it!

I FINALLY GOT MY DRESS!!!!!!!!! For those of you who dont know the story.... i bought this dress without trying it on. I fell in love with it online and couldnt get it out of my head. Nowhere in my city had it. I actually purchase another dress but after a week (of regret i might add) i found out that the deposit didn't actually go through (yay!) So in the end after trying on countless Maggies and camparing it all to this one I took a leap of faith and bought my Maggie. I came in today... i got the phone call and left work to go try it on! LOL. I love it and its all i hoped it would be.

The top layer in this pic desperately needs to to be pressed but im also taking out that top layer  and taking the lace edge down to the loger second layer just to make sure it all lays nicely flat

Ooooh I love that! It looks so pretty and elegant! Have you picked out your shoes yet? That's what I love about that style of dress....you can show off some gorgeous heels.

I have ordered two different pair and sent them both back because they just weren't right.  So I have now ordered these, hoping they're the ones.  The shoes definitely have to be awesome since they'll be seen!

The first is a dress I've been drooling over since before I even met my FI...they no longer make it, so I'm having it made for me by a designer where I live...lucky for me, its costing less that half of what it would have cost if i bought the original, best of all, I can have her made is the most beautiful blush pink silk I've ever seen!

 

Here she is:

 

Wondering what you thought of Melissa Sweet Lia? : wedding melissa sweet Lia

 

And this is my second dress...I will be wearing this one to the after party, as well as for our TTD shoot the next day!

 

my future wedding dress hands down

 

Both of them are being custom made and will ring in at less than $1500 for both including alterations! WOOT!

Wow, i love both of your dresses!!! The first one is so simple and elegant and the I absolutely love the lace and the low back of the second!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
