@@maybeoneday thank you!

 

@@yycbride2016 thank you! great ideas - I'll check for stores that are closing shop and I'm bound to find a great deal.

 

@@snswedding2016 thanks for recommending Sussman's. can't hurt to check it out next time I'm downtown. I'm so excited to find the perfect belt.

 

@@Wafflesmom thank you! the deal hunter in me was quite proud with that price. just means I can spend that money somewhere else, likely more flowers!

 

ps. Sadly I didn't get a chance to check out your jeweller. before we knew it our vacation was up. we'll be out west soon enough I'm sure. we said we wouldn't go until after the wedding but I can't see my fiancé going that long without seeing his family. If we haven't found our rings by then we will definitely pop in :) thanks again for their contact information.

 

@@deecol I was experiencing serious withdrawals but knew if I opened the website I wouldn't be able to put it down lol thanks so much. So relieved!

@@ashhtayy that is seriously a great price. It's such a beautiful dress and it hugs you in all the right places! Derrick and I ended up getting both of our rings from our jeweler. I will post it on my thread tonight. He was definitely great to work with and pricing was great (although we did end up going over-budget on Derrick's ring....yup, the man who initially didn't even want a ring!) LOL

@ SO exciting. we take possession tomorrow but the BIG move is next Wednesday because Mike is NYC for work (poor him, right?). 

 

thanks! i love the dress. when i got home and looked at the pictures i was less than impressed though BUT i can remember how I felt in it and that was pure joy. lets just say my mom and MOH should stick to their day jobs and leave photography up to the pros :) (ps. i would have taken the exact same shots - it's so hard to get a good picture because the lighting is so different in the bridal stores...that's my excuse anyways)

 

@@Wafflesmom thank you! i'll keep an eye out for your bands. so exciting!

I actually think you look better in it than the models. You should model it :) that's a compliment. I was going to say it before but was scared it would come out wrong :)

@@calgarybride2015 thank you!! obviously the model is gorgeous but I also don't love the pictures of her in it. I figured it was the colour and the missing belt that I didn't like. Looks too...non-bride'ish' in those pictures.

 

ps. kim, we're best friends after that compliment.

Okay so I have been COMPLETELY absent from this site for a very long time (since the day we took possession of our house). I've wanted to log on so many times but have found myself WAY too overwhelmed. Between my new position at work, my FI's new job and us moving into our house I have done zero wedding planning. I LOVE seeing what you ladies are dong because it encourages me to get going but at the same time it freaks me out because I am so behind. 

 

 

A few months ago my maid of honour planned a bridesmaids outing for today. They booked two appointments and made reservations for a lunch in between. The first store we went to was perfect. It had a bridesmaid room that had 5 change rooms and its own private pedestal for the girls to showcase their beautiful gowns. After I saw them in this dress, nothing compared.

 

 

What do you ladies think? I have also included a picture of a necklace I like that will add something special to look.

 

 

Dress - Front

 

Dress - Back

 

Necklace

 

It's a Sorella Vita dress. Style number is 8562. They only had black in the store but the dress does come in blush. Although I don't love the photos of the blush dress (seems SO pink and I am not a pink girl), the dress itself looks amazing on all the girls. I'm terrified to order a dress in a colour I haven't seen in person but I think we may bite the bullet and place the order.

 

 

I will post on your threads soon. Can’t wait to catch up on all your work!

@@ashhtayy Sounds like you are super busy! I haven't been on the site much myself. Life gets in the way! The dress is beautiful. Love the back. Can you get a swatch of the fabric in blush or can you find a blush dress at another store?

@@vancouverpetunia I actually emailed the store after the post and she got back to me early this morning saying she put an order in for a satin Sorella Vita dress in blush. It'll be a different dress but I'll get to see a dress in that colour. Perfect option. It should be in by the end of the month which also leaves lots of time. In the meantime I will pop in a few local stores that carry the line and see if I get lucky and find one. Great tip!

 

My mum was surprised with the selection thinking we'd want less fabric with the wedding being in Mexico. I think she figured strapless. I hope they don't boil. Only one way to find out :)

 

Glad you like the dress. I needed some reassurance. I also fell in love with the back. So pretty.

 

:)

    • 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.
