Show us your wedding dress!

WOW! This is such a beautiful dress... one of the prettiest I have seen so far (no offense ladies, this one is speaking to me)

Who is the designer? Is it a Sottero and Midgley?

I am going to be dying.  I already posted my dress, it's a Sottero and Midgley like Amanda + Dave (don't you just love their designs).  But I went to running of the brides and got my trash the dress for $249 (It's Alfred Sung)

With only 5 months to go - I finally found my dress!!  Loving it! 

 

I have a little weight to lose to make it fit a *little* better, and I am considering a corset back to emphasize the hour-glass effect....but I am very happy with her :)

Beautiful dress Pam!! I love the ruching :) I was going to ask you to post photos in the Calgary thread when I saw that you'd bought it ;)

 

I am definitely in favour of putting in a corset back! Your shape will look amazing! But also, you won't have to stress about everything you eat/drink leading up to the big day. I don't know about you, but I'll be at my resort for 4 days before the wedding and I want to be able to it! lol

haha, thanks Sandy!

 

I only have a day and a half at the resort before the wedding - but you are totally right.  I don't want to stress about being able to zip my dress!!

 

I love how clean and simple the zip-back looks....but a corset is just the way to go I think.

Pam I love your dres!!!!!

 

I agree about the lace up back.  My dress didn't have one but I could get it made with one so I did.  Definitely agree that it makes your shape look awesome.  In the Calgary forum you asked if any knows the cost, I'm not sure.  I paid $150 extra to get mine done by the designer and the girl at the store told me it was cheaper than getting it done after.  But their prices are probably more than other places (not at a bridal store)  If you get your alterations done at Connie's be sure to let us Calgary girls know how it goes, I'm thinking of taking my dress there too.

 

congrats!!!

Awesome to see the Calgary girls take over the wedding dress thread! Pam your dress looks fantastic it doesnâ€t look like it needs much by way of alterations at all! My dress has a zipper and button, I am with you on the look, but alterations because of that are ALLOT more of a headache and at the end of the day I dont think that it would fit the same way (I have 6 days at the resort prior to the big day!! and TTD session is 11 days after arrival!) talk about pressure, ha ha! Anyhow I digress, congrads on finding your perfect dress!

    • Hi guys! Thank you for sharing the valuable information. Some students think, “How do I write my book review?” and are confused by this sort of task, and others are happy to do it and enjoy the writing process a lot. Such a difference in perception and attitudes is caused by the ambivalence of this task.
    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
    • Getting married in 10/2020, anyone had a recent wedding here? Asking for some help
    • Hi, I know prices change year to year- Anyone have 2019 or possibly 2020 prices? 
    • My husband and I was married 18 years ago. My husband hates dressing up and truly I had no idea to that he feels embarrassed in dress attire. I told him the only way I would marry him was in tux jacket and pants shirt. Well he wore it but after wedding hyperventilating and nearly passed out. He felt totally humiliated and had horrible memories of our wedding. He has never allowed me to show our wedding photos to anyone and simply it ruined the wedding and has caused tremendous amount of issues over the years due to the fact I made him wear it. He now wants to redo the wedding to wash out our wedding memories and create new. Wants briadsmaid groomsmen everything. He wished he had simply went against my will wore something different. So wants to redo everything included everyone and what they wore but change what he wore. Me dressed in my original wedding dress. I so wish I had never posed him into a suit on our wedding day.its been 18 year nightmare.  He simply wishes to completely recreate a memory. My question is it okay to completely redo our wedding exactly the way it was except what he wears? This has been 18 years of hell he xant get over it. He cant even stand to look at photos and we have never watched the video. Thank you all Sarah
