Show us your wedding dress!

So I officially cheated on my dress, and quite frankly, Iâ€m happy I did.  Long story short I was watching an episode of SYTTD with my Fi and my dress happened to be featured (no he didnâ€t know).  He tends to freely voice his opinions about the dresses in the show and my dress was no exception… “Thatâ€s an interesting dress, but it doesnâ€t look suitable for a wedding.  If it wasnâ€t white you wouldnâ€t know it was a wedding dressâ€.  You know what, he was right.  While I love every detail of my dress and think it reflects my personality to a ‘T†it never gave me a bridal feeling which is a pretty important factor to overlook.  And after having this conversation and trying my dress on again I knew I couldnâ€t were it on our wedding day.  Any-who, hereâ€s dress #2, not sure about the veil or the sash, but the dress is a definite keeper…

Are you going to have Jasmine's do this or did you already purchase the original at the bridal salon?

I check on this thread to see her first dress and it was posted on this thread back in February. Not sure the page.  It's very vintage looking and simple. Another beautiful dress, but I can see how she might feel more "bride-ish" in this second dress.

Thanks for all the compliments ladies. I'm surprised I ended up with a lace dress. I love lace but often felt like a doily in wedding dresses that were lace from head-to-toe. I was actually done with my bridal appointment, left the store in disappointment, saw this dress on the mannequin in the window and went back in to try it on.  If youâ€re interested, thereâ€s a pic of my original dress if you go to my profile

No, I bought this dress today. I was considering Jasmines for my TTD dress, but now that I bought a second dress, the Jasmines TTD dress is on hold until I get my first dress sold. I considered Jasmines for a split second but since Iâ€m picky with lace, I didnâ€t trust that they could find the fabric to replicate it; itâ€s a swiss dot tulle with lace embroidery.   And the price was right so I didnâ€t feel the need to gamble with Jasmines.

Hello ladies!! I need help. I tried on dressed for the first time yesterday. I really didn't expect to find a dress. I thought I would get an idea of what I liked and of how much weight I have to lose lol. But there was this one dress I really liked. Now I'm torn between trying on more dresses to see what else is out there or just buying that dress. Theres a trunk sale at the store this weekend so it makes it even more stressful for me. Help! I want to upload a pic but Im on my phone and don't know how to. :confused:

i say just go with the dress if you love it! so many people end up coming back to one of the first dresses that they found -- i guess it depends on how much you enjoy the whole trying-on-dresses process?

Yea it definelty depends on how much you enjoy the experience. But I would wait and go again, maybe try lots of different styles to see what style speaks to you. I bought something my first time out and ended up with major regret, because I quickly realized that I liked it, but I didn't love it. I say wait till you get that wow feeling, if you enjoy dressing up!

    • 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.
