Acw271011 So This Is Not A Planning Thread.... But

Recommended Posts

Happy to help! I'm smaller in my waist and have larger hips if you can't tell by the picture, just to give you more sizing info.

@@acw271011 I don't mind - I'm normally a 10/12 in pants  and a medium in tops.

 

This is how the medium fit me.  I'm only holding the top up because I was by myself and couldn't reach to the back to zip up all the way.  I should also point out I was not wearing a bra, so the top supports pretty decent as well.  The bottom was a tad long, I'm 5'7.

 

After the USD exchange rate, taxes, shipping and customs each dress ended up being about $110.  The offer 10% your first order so it basically covered the shipping for mine.  I ordered two dresses.

 

Oh it looks great!!! I really like it! The colour is beautiful and looks so pretty on you, and will be perfect for bridesmaids! I would order probably royal blue or something like that so that I could wear it lots of times. The strapless is perfect for Mexico! Thanks for the reassurance. I think I might just go ahead and order one.

 

My thing is with all the surgeries I really don't have a waist right now and probably won't until the end of the year. They said with the nerves that got cut and the incisions being so big it takes time to come back from it. I can't even get on the exercising because the shortness of breath is so bad I can do 5 minutes on the treadmill and can barely breathe. The waist size like @@Wafflesmom said is what really worried me but what the heck. I think it's worth a try for the price they are.

Thanks! I love the colour too :) They are super pretty and perfect for the Mexico beach.

 

Just be careful when ordering because the waist really has no give, lots of room in the hips and legs and even the bust area wasn't too tight but the waist had no stretchy-ness to it, that's why I wanted to point out that I'm smaller in the waist, hourglass shape I guess so the medium was fine for me and hopefully my girls.

I finally got to try my dress on tonight. I HATE the pictures, and really hate having my picture taken. I had a long day today and am absolutely exhausted so the photos are even worse than they would normally be. Keep in mind that the back isn't properly and totally laced up. We were also no in a big room so the back of the dress wasn't properly "puffed" out. It's I think one of the big things that attracted me to the dress. But.... here it is on. Sadly I rushed out of here this morning and forgot the "later" dress (still haven't decided what I'm doing with it yet) so having that one on will have to wait for the weekend.

Aww thanks! My friend just grabbed my hair and pinned it so that we could get an idea of the veil length and she put it higher than I wanted but at least it gave me a general idea. We took yards and yards of crinoline out so it toned the dress down a lot!! Which is what I wanted but standing and standing while they pinned and in such a small space I was ready to pass out from the heat. I'm just hoping that being on an open air terrace in mexico makes it nowhere near as bad as it was last night.

 

Also - anyone have any tips on the best way to break in shoes????? Yikes!

@ thank you!!

 

@deecol  I'm giving serious thought to a dress from the lulu's site. The prices are great and you can always wear a long dress over and over. Maxis are back in style now too!

@@Wafflesmom Ok please don't make me cry!! lol I'm so so nervous about this dress for Doug to see. It wasn't my original choice - the original was about 3 times the cost! And after getting so overheated in it last night I'm a little worried. It was quite a bit bigger on me too than expected. Thanks so much for the boost!!

I'm pretty certain Doug will be speechless when he sees you in this dress because it honestly looks beautiful on you. For someone who said they were exhausted and that the dress wasn't properly tied and poofed, you looked pretty good in those pics. And I think you made a great choice despite it not being your first dress choice. Once it's been altered too, it's gonna look even better ;)

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
