Show us your wedding dress!

I had initially posted a link of my dress here however we have had some changes since. Unfortunately (/fortunately) when my first fitting came around, my dress was made 4" too small!! Since I had purchased my original dress, a new Spring line had been released and one caught my eye while I visited the bridal salon. I ended up falling in LOVE with this new dress, and since a new dress had to be made for me anyway, I decided to switch. While I truly loved my first dress, the fabric was of concern. This new dress is everything I loved about the first dress with different (lighter) fabric! I am SO excited. Guess it was meant to be :D

My new dress...THE dress:

That's one gorgeous dress! OMG I'd be so mad if they made it too small! I'm glad it all worked out for the best though. The material on the new dress looks really light and flowy, I like it and I think it will be perfect for a DW :)

Very pretty!

 

How did they make it 4 inches too small? Like took it in too much or the sizing was way off? I had a problem with mine coming smaller than the rack dress too but she's taking it out a bit. 4 inches seems like a lot. Are they comping you?

@@calgarybride2015 Thank you! We had sent my measurements and requested size to be manufactured and somehow it literally was cut 4 inches too small! It was my first fitting and I had a panic attack in the fitting room because I could see the size of the dress and the receipt attached to the garment bag stated all the correct measurements but I physically could not get it on properly. I knew I had not gained weight but I could not think of why else this was happening! They eventually got me back in my clothes and remeasured me...same measurements. They measured the dress and realized it was at least 3.5'' off. It had to be sent back to the manufacturer to verify but I received an email back from them that verifies it was 4''. The bridal salon is ensuring everything is taken care of thankfully. It really has been an adventure with my dress.  :)

Wow interesting!! Glad they are working it out. Ya I was a little panicked and upset too but it really hit at my first fitting when the seamstress was scared to zip it up lol. She's taking it out but when you think of taking it out you fear it's just too small and I'll be scrambling last minute to get another one. Ugh! And it's a hard time of year for not indulging some. I try not to think about it so I don't stress too much. Hindsite I would have gotten the size up.

I know. I've been bad lately more with a lack of exercise. The scale is fairly consistent but my clothes feel different :( I've been trying to up my gym time but I'm two months out so time is running out. Oh well crossing fingers.

Here's a picture of my dress (not actually me but you know what I mean). I had originally bought it at the beginning of the year when our original plans was to do a hometown wedding. I kind of wish I waited until now because the dress is now $200 cheaper. I cannot wait to wear my wedding dress!

I purchased my dress online pretty well as soon as we got engaged (and it was 50% off - total $150!!). I have liked it since before I met my groom (4 years ago). I did still go do a day in a couple gallery's, but when I put this one one nothing topped it. My MOH and Mom totally agree that nothing compared to what I found. So happy.

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
