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.gif

My best advise is not to rush this experience unless you truely have a time crunch. I would try on more dresses and if in the end your heart brings you back to this one atleast you will have the reassurnace from the expereience that you made the right choice. Good luck.

Gorgeous gown. You look resplendent. I say go with the sash! I like the extra pop it adds. I love lace- its timeless and elegant. I'm curious about the first dress too! Post a picture. What are the odds! HAHA once we became engaged and I would look through bridal magazines and ask my fiance his opinions he would say "I'm not saying anything because I don't want to stop you from your dream dress with my opinions and if I say I don't like it I don't want to break your heart." Once I got my gown- I actually did show him the pics of all the dresses I tried on- with the exception of "the one" and I asked what he thought and he refused to say anything because he was worried if he nayed a style close to my choice, he would offend me. He also refused to look at them for a very long time. And he will not say anything when I watch SYTTD because he thinks I'm trying to bait him into commenting on a dress similar to mine. He is convinced I have already shown him the pic because he thinks its one of the ones I didn't pick. What are the odds that he would comment on your actual gown? That's insane! But I'm glad you found an alternative you love even more than the first. What will you do with the first gown? Will you sell it? Or use it for a TTD? Or change into it for the reception?

Hello Ladies,

 

I have something i'm concerned about and would love some feedback. I bought my dress in february and the sample size fit me like a glove but the consultant talked me into ordering a size up because it's a mermaid style and she said it would be better to get it custom altered to my body, sounded good at the time. WELL since then I've lost just under 20 pounds and now the dress is MASSIVE and i'm super worried about  the alterations. I'm hoping the dress comes out of the alterations looking the same.

Anyone else had a similar issue?? and how did your dress turn out?

Bestbride I think it really depends on the detail of The gown itself, but I think you will be ok. From what I understand a general rule of alterations thumb is two sizes up or down. Honestly I feel like she shouldn't have talked you into ordering a size up, especially if your getting alterations done there. Seems like a sales lady ploy to get u out of buying a cheaper sample.... Just my opinion though. I'm sure it will work out great though! What dress did you pick?

This dress is very stunning on you! Funny FI and I watch syttd sometimes together too and he comments on the dresses-luckily what he has said he likes my dress is similar. I'm glad your happy with your decision and you will look awesome on your special day:)

    • 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?
