Aww, that's too sweet. I am going to do a blingy belt. I've been trying to find the right one online! :) Thanks for the compliment, that's sweet!
Have you checked out the ones from BHLDN? The glitterati one is gorgeous.

That site has such nice belts/sashes! If I hadn't already purchased mine I would be getting one online!

my wedding is a week away and i have to share this with you guys.... i originally had dress regret... i was on here talking about how i wish i tried more dresses & im afraid my dress is not actually beachy and too much of a statement dress lol then i went and tried more on but didnt love anything else... then i would come on here and see other beautiful dresses and think i made a mistake again.... i kept going back and forth!!

 

everytime i went for fittings the dress was too big... i lost some weight and i have small breasts and when i first tried it on i had on a padded strapless bra. i realized i couldnt wear it after i purchased the dress because the back is too low and it would show. i have been upset and panicking for months that i made a mistake and was going to look flat chested and self conscious and mad that i didnt keep looking for other dresses...

 

ANYWAY i went to pick up my dress yesterday after making them take it on more on top (and add push up pads) even after my last fitting and guess what ???? it fit perfectly. for the first time in this whole process i am NOT worried about the dress!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i feel a huge sense of relief and since it now fits for the first time i actually had THAT moment ;) when i first tried it on i was excited and loved it then delt with nothing but dress regret after....

 

try and remember that until it fully fits you, it is hard to see the whole image. i dont care anymore that its a little much for the beach... its beautiful and it fit me like a glove. i had my moment later on;) lol

 

also when i put my dress on if i had to describe myself i would say i felt "FUN" in the more plain dresses i didnt get that feeling and thats really who i am... so i think it is important to stick to something that represents you. if you try and get a dress that doesnt fit your personality i dont think u will ever really be happy with it.

 

i posted a pic a while back and didnt take any new ones this time... if i can find the old one i posted ill do it again =)

You are so right. I bought my dress in August and have not seen it since! I was having such bad dress regret it was stressing me out so much! My biggest thing was that it was too fancy for the beach. My FI one night even decided we should look online for another dress if i was that worried about it. One of the biggest factors in my dress regret was that it was not what I had imagined at all! Also I had to shop alone because we live away from family as FI is a contractor and we move around a bit. So I was just so scared that I had made the wrong choice. Well Tuesday I just happened to be in the town I bought the dress for an appt for my doggie and I decided I would go pay the rest of it off and look at the sample again. I am SO GLAD I did. 

 

Because it had been so long I had pictured it in my head wrong. I was thinking I had a certain material at the top that would be too fancy (the shiny silky material) but I swear if it wasnt chiffon and soft and beautiful! They asked me if I wanted to try it on again but I was looking like a hot mess that day running errands so I didnt want to ruin it! But now Im so excited to see my actual dress next month and I feel so much better knowing I have a clearer picture of it in my head...now I am on a jewelry hunt!

You can never be too fancy- beach or not- it is your day. I thought my dress was too much but that's my personality, and then I saw other brides on this forum with their fancy dresses and I felt- yup I can rock mine.

BEAUTIFUL! I love it!

I've already been engaged for a year, so I had a lot of time to browse online and get a sense of what I wanted. I ended up ordering my dream dress that I was comparing every other dress to. It's modern but has vintage touches in the flowers and beading, which is exactly what I wanted. It's Hayley Paige's Nina (HP6254). [be careful doing a Google image search on that -- there was a porn star with the same name!] 400 400 400

    • 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?
