Love the dress! I went with BM's dresses from the Daintyard and was really happy with them and the find :) It saved me a lot and they are great for the price!

Thats awesome! I just compared prices (since its the exact same dress), and i think the Daintyard is $2 cheaper haha. I'm just happy my bridesmaids will only have to pay $70 instead of $150!  Davids bridal had a convertible dress which I loved for $200!! This is seriously a steal!

No it was different than then Henkaa ones. It was basically a strappless dress with strap that could be tied a few different ways. These dresses on Etsy are way more versatile in my opinion.

 

Thats so nice of you to buy their dresses. I've got lots of little gifts for my bridesmaids (jewlery, gift bags filled with fun stuff like facial cream and personalized shot glasses). I considered buying their dresses but it just didnt fit in our budget unfortunately. I'm paying the $20 extra for my bridesmaid who is plus size since it costs more for her dress. I didnt feel it was fair to make her pay more because she is larger.

@@yycbride2016 you are going to have SO much fun! I do have my dress already.  The best advice I received before I was dress shopping was not to be disappointed if you don't find something that you are 100% sure about. I did actually find my dress the first day I went dress shopping, but it was a much more difficult decision than I had anticipated and I had to go home and think about two that I really liked (I ended up purchasing a few days later). I had envisioned myself having a say yes to the dress moment, but there were so many beautiful dresses that I couldn't commit that day!  You will have so much fun, though! It also made everything very real to me once I had the dress. :)

Today was day one of dress shopping. I'm feeling really discouraged at the moment. I felt stupid at my first appointment. The woman asked all about the wedding date, location, style, fit, etc. but budget never came into play until I'd already tried on 3 dresses and that's when I clued in as well and looked at the price tags and was shocked. I really didn't want to spend more than $1000. Ideally around the $500 range. These dresses were $1800 and $ 2100 . Way more then I can justify for a dress I will wear for one day. I fell in love with a David Tuttera dress for $1800 . I felt a little offended when the store person told me I'd be better to look at bridesmaids dresses for my budget. Walked away from that store very discouraged.

 

We called a dress shop closer to my house to see if they had any openings today. They did. They were really rude to me when I said I wanted to stay under $1000. Rolled their eyes and said we'll see what they could do. There was only 2 dresses (3 if you count the old lady dress they found haha). I actually really liked a dress there for $650 but it was completely different then the other dresses I fell in love with and so for that I wasn't 100% certain on the dress.

 

So on that note I'm going to start from square one and start looking again. My problem is I love the lace dresses with lots of sparkle . I am also considering ordering a dress online as my backup plan. This is the dress I'm considering:

You send them your measurements and it comes custom made. My mum had her dress for my wedding made by them and it came out amazing. Fit her like a glove and was even more gorgeous in person than online. So much to think about.

Ahhh I'm sorry it wasn't as you envisioned. If your range is under $1000 but closer to $500 I really suggest you try David's Bridal. My gown was $500 on the nose!!! You will find it I promise.

Ps - the dress you posted in gorgeous. You do have your mom as a success story with this company so I would definatley consider that if you can't find what you want in person!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
