Hi ladies, I'm new to this thread but I'm going dress shopping this weekend so I dresses on the brain!  All of you have such beautiful dresses and they are not all "beachy", part of me wants a beachy flowy dress and part of me wants a traditional beautiful gown.  So many decisions, yikes!

Don't buy the first dress you like. Shop around and try lots of dresses on. The dress will pick you.

yay Kristina!!! Dallas has so many awesome bridal shops. Have fun with the process, and do take your time. Visit several shops and try on different styles and designers. You may surprise yourself and choose something you never would have imagined. Trust the consultants in the shop - they know their dresses, and they know which ones will flatter each beautiful bride. Good luck!!

LL I just purchased a Pronovias Parabola off the rack for my beach wedding (got it for $900 CDN).  A lot of alterations to be done, though!  It needs to be made several sizes smaller, shortened, and have the zipper back replaced with a corset, if possible.  Hopefully the alterations won't cost as much as the dress did!  Yikes!!
I purchased a sample gown too that is way too big and I'm getting lots of things changed on it so I know how you feel! Are u getting it altered from same place u bought it?

Exciting weekend - I have collected my dress and my H2B and best man are away to order their kilts.

 

Enjoy your dress search ladies and remember to have an open mind and try on dresses suggested to you - you may very well be surprised.

 

Enjoy the journey  ~ Kirstin x

    • 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.
