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 @perianjay 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 & @perianjay 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

@Wafflesmom maybe it's a Vancouver thing? lol Before Mike answers any dress related questions he asks if it is a trick.
