So... Long story but I will try to keep it short. My aunt offered to tailor my dress. She is a seamstress and has made beautiful wedding gowns in the past so I 150% trust her work and judgement. I met her on Sunday at my mom's for the first fitting. Before she showed up my mom and I were test dying different laces to see how they turned out. Everything looked great but just a bit darker than my dress. When my aunt showed up she asked what we were doing and then asked to look at the veil with the dress. She begged me not to dye the veil because she has dyed things many times before and she said it would be a lot darker than my ivory dress. We tried on the dress with the gown and it actually doesn't look bad. She said an "ivory" veil will always be lighter than an ivory dress. I think I'm going to be play it safe and leave it as is.

Hmm, good to know. That makes me a little nervous to try it now. Although when I went to fabricland to pick up lace samples, the sales women there said that she thought it wouldn't take the color at all! I think I may wait and try everything on together as well and see how it all looks before I try it... I'd really hate to ruin it. Thanks for the info!! :)

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
