So I picked up my dress last night and I couldn't be happier It's not exactly the same as the photo but it's similar and I think it's very pretty. It is also beautiful work(wo)manship. And it fits like a glove! Not a gap or a pucker anywhere.

The belt doesn't come with with it, but it definitely needs one.

@@vancouverpetunia Oh Erin! It's beautiful!!! I really love it!!! It looks gorgeous on you!!!! I think it will be perfect for your wedding!! You're right - it fits perfectly and it definitely needs a belt!! Are you adding that one, or looking for a different one? That one looks great with it!! What are you putting on/in your hair? A veil or something else? A veil would look pretty (imo lol) but a birdcage would be gorgeous!!! lol And your lace shoes.... perfect!!! (if that's still the ones lol)

@@rebeccarpeck, @@krystalball Thank you!  :)

 

@@acw271011 I do like that belt. I actually wouldn't have picked it off the rack - a bit too much bling for me, but I think it looks good. I'm going to hunt around a bit, but may end up getting it. No veil... thinking a headband, which I might try to match to the belt (i.e. if I go with a rhinestone belt, go with a rhinestone headband). The shoes are these:

 

shoes

 
They are a little more ivory than the dress, but I don't think you will notice since there is quite a gap between the dress and the shoes. I don't know if I would have picked them to go with this dress (I picked them to go with a different dress), but I think they'll work. I'll probably end up in flipflops later anyhow  :D

@@vancouverpetunia I think you should stick with that belt! lol It looks beautiful! LOVE the shoes!! They'll be perfect! I don't think the colour will be any kind of an issue. If anything a slight difference in the shade will set off both really nicely!! A hairband will be so pretty, especially if you get it with bling!! lol

Hey!

 

I think your dress is gorgeous. She did a fabulous job and it looks awesome on you :)

 

With respect to hair -- I think what you do with it depends on how your hair holds in humidity. Most don't. Even Perian just mentioned her curls wouldn't hold either. I may consider an up do for this reason!

 

For BMs. Why not just say you will pay their hair and leave it at that. Let them know makeup is available if they prefer it done professionally and give them the cost. I told my girls their options (self vs salon) and gave costs and all jumped on booking. No one was upset as for their weddings we paid our own too!

 

I agree with Ann, if the men get a golf excursion you ladies should get something too :) for gifts if you want ideas - maybe a piece of jewelry for their dress? Or a little pampering gift pack of stuff for Mexico in a nice make up bag? A beach bag or swim suit coverup? Some have found sunglasses or watches cheap too! Hmmm or like the golf help pay for the excursion.

 

With respect to tanning -- you should start soon rather than later. Depending on your skin tone it can take a while to build up time and thus a tan. You'll need 2+ months!!

 

Good luck. It'll be here before you know it :)

 

Heheh I realized I gave ideas before for the BMs. I'm sorry!

 

And love those shoes. A slight different in color won't be noticeable as you've said since there is a gap!

Omg @@vancouverpetunia congrats on getting your marriage license! That's so exciting! We still have to do ours haha and we are getting married in less than 4 weeks .

 

Congrats on getting your dress! That's so exciting and makes everything soooo real!

 

Exciting about the bachelorette party! I had mine last night and it's so much Fun! I'm sure your girlfriends will make it super special for you! I love the wine and spice theme! Especially the wine! My fiancé and I have the same issue. Everyone keeps hounding us on what we want as gifts and we honestly don't want anything. We have everything we could need. I invited all family from both sides that lived close by as well as my best girlfriends. Hopefully that helps.

 

Those makeup suggestions are gorgeous! I really LOVE the second one. It's very bridal and just gorgeous! I also love that look with the curls! It would looks so nice on the beach! My hair is also dead straight but with enough product the curls will stay. Also day old hair (one day past washing) and it holds better too.

 

Well done on everything. It's all coming together nicely!

@@vancouverpetunia Your dress is so pretty!!! Yay for custom (clearly I'm biased though ;) )! Love the shoes and the belt too!!

 

I agree with Kim, you may want to do an updo for your hair especially if it doesn't hold curl well. My maids of honour both wanted their hair down (neither of them like their hair fully up) but the ladies at the spa were really hesitant and warned them about the humidity and wind. They both ended up getting an updo and were very happy about it once we were out in the heat! That being said I have seen some brides leave their hair down and it looks beautiful...maybe depending on the time of year?

 

I also was nervous to have a shower or a fancy bachelorette. I didn't want people to spend more money than they were already to come to the wedding BUT my maids of honour insisted and were kinda sad initially when I suggested not having one. They really wanted to plan the event and so I let them go to town. I didn't really ask for help in planning the wedding so this was their way of being a part of the process. I think if you have people offering to host it - let them! This means their excited to help out with your wedding. For my shower it was a mixture of people - some were coming to the wedding and others were not and that was a nice way for them to celebrate with me. Wine and Spice sounds really fun! My maids asked everyone to bring something for the wedding night....they forgot they invited my 90 grandma 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?
