Dw Dress...follow The Rules?

Recommended Posts

I am hoping with the alterations that I won't need to do too much either, other then the hem of course.  Good luck on your virtual fitting!

Got my dress on Friday and with the customize sizing, I will need very little additional alterations!  Just the hem and the straps come adjustable, so they just need to be sewn into place.  So happy it fit so well and won't have to pay a lot to get alterations!

Yay! That is so awesome. I had my virtual fitting last week and I was so excited that they could make the dress with the top from a small and the rest a medium (I wish my top was a medium too but, alas) - it is so great that they do the free customization! I'm also having them raise the back one inch to cover a tattoo I got when I was 17 - I'm not anti-tattoo, just mine in particular. Ha. I attached a pic of me in it!

 

(I actually got the Lanai - same as Poipu except for the cup shape.)

 

Are you getting married on the beach? I'm not sure if I should get it hemmed for barefoot/flats, or if I should leave it a little longer for heels for the reception. I don't want to trip on it when I'm wearing it barefoot.

Looks great!!  I didn't know this but they have built in cups to add a little extra on top (I definitely need it in the size that fits me).  So all you have to do is put in the extra fillers (instead of having that altered too).  I had to have the back raised an inch too, cause the top of my butt was showing lol.  

 

Yes, I am getting married on the beach so going barefoot for that and then looking for shoes for the reception.  I am just going to have it altered for the shoes and it will drag a little bit on the sand.  The sales gal said I will just have to hold it a bit when I walk, but the dress is so so long when it arrives, a few inches will (fingers crossed) be okay and I won't trip!

I ended up going with something more formal than I had thought I wanted, but it's still flowy and beachy. When I put it on, I just loved it and felt comfortable. I, personally, am not a fan of satin, so I knew I didn't want to go that route. Also, I have a large chest, so I knew I didn't want strapless. This dress has a nice little train too. I also have a mid-length veil with subtle silver beading along the edge and the flower clip for my hair (the beading and stitching is more silver in person). (I have long hair but I plan to wear it back in a loose bun of some sort.) Then I have my glitter shoes (!!!!), which I'll be wearing for the reception.

 

The short dress is my "back-up" dress. I am trying to be realistic in thinking that I might get overheated being in my dress for 6+ hours, so I wanted to get a cute white dress that I could change into, if need be, and still look like the bride. This one was very reasonably priced, so it was worth it to me to at least have it. I might get a glitzy belt/sash for it.

All I can recommend now is something light and airy. Even in my 'dw dress' I was sweating down my legs it was gross lol.

    • 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?
