      Lizzie:

      I think this dress looks great on you: nice silhouette and love the lacy pattern.  I do think the rhinestone adds something to it for sure, but I might consider getting a belt with just a bit more width to it.  However, the belt is still very nice, and I think I'm just trying to gild the lily! LOL

        I LOVE this! I looked at short dresses a lot (ultimately went long), and this one is FABULOUS. So gorgeous. I love the shape and detailing!

          Cinnagirl,

          Thanks for the compliments and I love the idea of wearing your dress again for a TTD.  We had so much fun during our sunrise TTD beach shoot that we’re planning on a cenote TTD when we return to Mexico for our 1 year anniversary.  I would love to wear my dress again, but in hind sight, wearing a lace dress for a TTD  was not a smart move for me.  With all my layers of lace and tulle, it easily weighed +/-40 lbs once it got saturated with ocean water and packed in sand… I posted a few pics here: http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/t/74305/trash-the-dress-yes-or-no/370#post_1923082

           

          Brownsugarbride,

          LOL, I love reading your feedback.  Thanks for the compliments. Have you settled on a dress yet. I’m recalling a Mori Lee?!?!? Am I way off base here?

           

          AllieH,

          Hey Allie, thanks for the kind words.  Yes, Justin now knows about dress number one, but it wasn’t until after we returned home.  He loved my lace mermaid, and only cared that I was able to recoup most of my cost from the first dress, which I did (thank goodness).  His perspective started to change once we were in Mexico, he stopped seeing $$ signs and was more intune with our marriage and the wedding.  I think it all fell in place and just started to make sense.

           

          Keep your eyes peeled on FB and if you follow the link above in my response to Cinnagirl,  there are a few from our TTD.  A few more pics may randomly appear but I think this may be the extent of my pic posting on BDW.

           

          Tyrebride2b2013,

          Thank you. Happy might be an understatement, when I was looking through our pics I never realized that my smile was so big, I was all gums. This wasn’t too flattering, but there was no hiding my emotions that day.

              I am so backwards! I am still in the process of finalizing my venue for the actual wedding but think I have a dress.  (My venue of choice, Grand Coral Beach Club, decided to institute a very large new site fee. :(  However, I am still leaning toward staying at NJ.)   You also must be psychic, because I've never mentioned a dress, but I tried on a Mori Lee yesterday! LOL LOL  I think I have settled on a dress (not a Mori Lee), and I have to say, I am very surprised by my choice but pleased---especially as it is way under budget.  I'm just waiting for it to go on sale, even though it's fairly inexpensive now.

              Okay, so I was wrong, but congrats on finding your dress! I'll keep my fingers crossed that you can get it for a steal.  Any savings will help especially with the increased site fees at GCBC... Great choice in venues by the way.  We loved the idea of hosting our wedding their, but couldn't justify the site fee for our guest count of 22.

                It's tough...I am looking at some other venues in the area so we'll see what happens!

                  LOVE! I wanted a short dress at first. ( I mean I REALLY thought that's what I wanted. ) BUt ultimately ended up falling in love with the opposite of what I thought would look good on me. Haha, funny how things like that work!

                   

                  I posted this a few pages earlier but for a reminder, here is my dress:
