Here is mine!  I am really late in getting something but I was told this should be in by first week of October! Crossing my fingers!  Hard to see all the detail in the dress but I love it!  I added the eggplant sash to it and will need some minor alterations.

Ok I tried the dress back on! Still LOVE it but realize I need way better posture and I need to learn to smile. I hate smiling and when I force it I look dorky -- so don't mind the smile or (way overdue for a hair cut) hair!! Growing out for the wedding is painful.

 

So my question is -- is my train to long? I guess this is a personal preference but seems sooooo long. I've considered having it shortened or removed but leaning to either nothing or shortened.

I like it like that although I know what you mean. I'd be afraid of tripping haha so only because of that I would get it shortened but otherwise it's beautiful. I think that would be taken care of with a nice bustle. Maybe if you're getting married on the beach, like on the sand, shorter would be better?

If the train stays it will get a bustle forsure. I'm trying to envision it with no train at all!! I know the front definitely needs a hem! Marrying on the sand!!! Such a hard decision.

 

If it wasn't for tripping I'd almost leave the front untouched.

@@calgarybride2015 I think removing it completely would really take away from the dress. The most I would do is shorten it and put a bustle in.

@@calgarybride2015 you look gorgeous in the dress! I love long trains so I think you look great. Are you planning to wear a different pair of shoes or veil with it? I think they will make a difference if you do.

I have a pair of fancy sandals - they are flat! I posted them in the shoe thread I think.

No veil, it's not my style as I am not very formal lol

 

This is the hair piece I am considering doing -- and a picture of inspiration, except I will use the hair piece to tack my bangs to the side as they curl up when in humidity so don't want to deal with them.  I will get a pearl bracelet with bling to tie in the hair bling.

 

 

 

 

 

hmmmm links are attached but pictures aren't showing up.

Love your dresses Calgarybride & snorfle !

I personally wouldn't shorten it, I think it's perfect. You should see how long mine is LOL. a bustle would be perfect IMO. I concur with if you removed it completely, it would take away from the dress.

 

and for posture? I was on buzzfeed a few weeks back and there was a whole post dedicated to doing the "turtle" I can't post links on my work computer or copy and paste for some dumb reason but it was hilarious, however very true when it came to posture. Not lying! Sounds funny but yeah. I just searched for it on google and you type in turtle wedding posture it's the first video  :)

I am really trying to picture this turtle thing!!!  It will be a constant reminder re posture!

I will get the front hemmed and probably just do a bustle - to be honest, bustle is cheaper than having it removed haha! 

 

I am sure I have seen your dress if you posted it - but I see so many will have to go back and look again!  If you haven't posted it - please do :)

    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks

After being paid in full she did not show up and texted  that she is sick . We had to take over  to save the wedding of 150 guests at Grand Velas . Cabo  MISSING WEDDING PLANNER.

    • You might consider underground studio Puerto Vallarta. They are a young coupe doing an excellent Job at affordable rates.
    • Thanks for answering Patty! We are having the legal proceedings done in December so february is the celebration. We will have pictures first then a ceremony with a religious discourse and then have the reception.  I'm guessing we will be 50 people, give or take. Half of them are Canadian. They will need accommodations but if we have the wedding ag a resort I dont want them to be forced into staying there if they dont want to.
