Wedding Dress Choice

Recommended Posts

Hey Ladies,

 

I need your opinions on wedding dresses. I bought a dress over a year and half ago, when I first got engaged, it was really nice and it was cheap, 100 euro ( 137 USD).In the past year, I've lost weight, and tonwd up, and the dress is really loose on me, I've tried it on pinned, but I'm just not loving it anymore. I don't feel amazing in it. Should I get another dress? Or is this just normal? Has anyone else felt like thus?

 

I have been to a few wedding dress shops, and I've fallen in love with a 1950`s tea length style dress. Unfortunately, I'm unable to afford the dress in question, as it costs €1400 (2000 USD). I do however know an amazing dress maker, who can probably make an identical dress. What do you think I should do? Do you think tea length would work at a DW? Or should I stick with my original choice, which is an a.line Grecian style dress. I'd really appreciate your thoughts and ideas :-)

Late reply but wanted to offer an opinion as you have been kindly helping me :)

 

LOVE LOVE LOVE the second dress, absolutely amazing!!! However you need to go with whatever you want, whether that means selling one you already have and buying another or keeping your original. No one else can answer this question really apart from you. Go with what you love.

 

I would probably imagine you bought the first one thinking yeah its nice and super cheap ill just get it, but now you are planning your wedding your heart is more into it and that dress probably isn't your dream dress.

 

Hope that helps :) x

I agree. Wear what makes you feel amazing.... but I'm a super old fashioned romantic and always think a wedding dress should be long. The tea length for me would be if you were having a courthouse wedding and nothing else.

 

Just my very personal opinion.... lol Good luck whatever you decide!!!

Oh you are so right!!!!! Totally went for the dress, cos I thought, its pretty, and inexpensive... oh its like you can read me ha ha :-) the first dress I got was in Monsoon, and I had always pictured myself in a Grecian/ floaty dress.... but now that I'm actually planning, I've a different vision of how I'd look.... the second dress is gorgeous, sadly it also has a big price tag... I'm getting a local dressmaker, to make up a replica of it, for half the price :-) really excited to see it when its all made up!!! :-)

Yeah feel so much happier now, it was in the back of my mind for a while, and I eventually said it to my sister, who brought me dress shopping a week or so later... I had a preference for the second dress, when I posted this, I guess I just needed a second /third opinion... that I was doing the right thing Lol :-) :-D

Thanks everyone for your advice, I've decided to go with my gut , and get the tea-length dress made by a dressmaker I know. I'll be having my first fitting in 2 weeks or so.... eek so excited :-)

    • 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?
