I totally love the shoes. Totally something that I would get haha. 

 

I'm happy your friend was able to make it work and come to the wedding. We had a couple that did that too and I'm so happy they came :)

 

I paid for my Bridesmaid's dresses but it wan't always the plan. I gave them $150 each and the dress they picked was $160 so I wasn't about the make them pay $10 hahah. At the time both of them were students and I didn't think it was fair, both of them were making a huge effort to come spend the week with us :). I let them pick their own dresses as long as they came in the color I picked but they all ended up choosing the same dress. It looked beautiful on everyone :)

@@TinkerSofi thank you so much. I love the shoes, their so girly lol. For my bridesmaids and MOH, I thought the same. They're all making big efforts to come to Mexico so I'm glad I was able to buy their dresses for them.

 

@@ashhtayy thanks :) I haven't tried on my dress in months and I've been so tempted to try it on lol.

@@Wafflesmom is your dress at home with you? I'm scared to bring mine home lol I want to get it out of the boutique because I'm paranoid that something tragic will happen like a fire or they'll go out of business. How terrible am I to even write that? It's a very reputable Boutique but you never know (especially because they took a cash deal lol).

 

I think if I have it at home I will try it on 5000x and find something wrong with it. I'm thinking stashing it at my parents might be the best way to go.

@@ashhtayy omg! haha.. those are such scary thoughts. Hopefully nothing like that ever happens! Did you buy it in Toronto?

 

I feel the same.. If I have it in my possession for too long I may start to overthink it or something

@@ashhtayy and @ yup, it's in my closet :) I bought my dress last October and the bridal salon was nice enough to hold it for me until about May. They couldn't hold it for too long since they had to make room for all their new dresses. I was like you and was worried about my dress getting lost, accidentally sold or like you said, lost in a fire. By the way, that totally happened to a bridal store here and a lot of brides lost their dresses (it can happen). I have room in our closet for it and Derrick promised me that he wouldn't peek if we stored it at home. I was going to ask my mom to store it at her house but I was scared it would smell like food! LOL My mom's is your typical Filipino house that smells like home cooking all the time. I was worried the smell of fried foods would stick to the dress....can you imagine walking down the aisle smelling like fried chicken? LOL So it's now in our closet.

 

I actually look at it every week and love my dress more and more. I've been wanting to try it on but I have no one to help me zip it up. I've asked Derrick if he would help me zip it up (eyes closed). He refused and said he didn't even want to know beforehand what it feels like LOL

@@Wafflesmom & @ i swear i'm not always this cynical haha you mentioned the dress getting lost or sold...those are much more plausible than a fire/out-of-business...and i hadn't even thought of those. i need to get my dress ASAP :)

 

i bought my dress at Tom Jeon at Steeles and Weston. I thought that was Woodbridge but apparently it is in Vaughan!? 

 

i laughed out loud when reading your comment about walking down the aisle smelling like fried chicken lol 

 

also, adorable that he didn't want to zip you up because he didn't want to know what it felt like. when i asked mike if he wanted to know anything about my dress, mostly because I was excited and wanted to talk about it, his response was "it's white and it's a dress - that's all i need to know". i then had to break the news to him that it was in fact ivory - his response? "those are basically the same colours". oh boys! :)

@@ashhtayy Mike and Derrick sound alike! LOL Derrick has no idea what my dress looks like. It's so funny, everytime I watch "Say Yes to the Dress" I'll ask him if he likes the dress and he won't say anything. He says he's afraid to comment in case he says something critical and it turns out to look like my dress. Smart man! LOL

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • 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?
