Hello everyone!

 

I've been consulting the forum for awhile now and need help choosing a dress.

 

My boyfriend and I have decided to skip the whole "engagement" part and get married in Tuscany, Italy this upcoming summer while we're visiting his family. We've invited just our immediate families and our 3 best friends each. It's going to be a very simple symbolic ceremony in a park or on a hill side (TBD when we arrive)

 

I was set on ordering a dress online for $100 and that would be that. Then I made the mistake of going to try on dresses with my best friend and now I'm unsure of what to do. I fell in love with a dress I tried on (no surprise) but it's a $1,100 dress. My Mom suggested wearing it long at the ceremony and then having it altered to a cocktail length for the AHR (we are having that a month after we return). An extra $1,000 on a dress isn't really in the budget but my Mom and best friend (she just got married this past summer) keep telling me that you only get married once and to go all out. I showed my boyfriend photos of OTHER dresses I had tried on that day and he said "I thought you were going to get something simple". I don't know what I should do. The downside to ordering online is not being able to try the dress on before you buy and the dress might not be exactly what the picture shows online.

 

I've attached pictures. The short dress is the one online and the long dress is the one I tried on last week.

 

If I bought the long dress, would it be appropriate to shorten it and wear it to the wedding party after?

It's your wedding. Do what YOU want to do. I think both are gorgeous!!! But my feeling is for the long. It's simple but very elegant and I think it would suit beautifully for a wedding in Italy. I wouldn't even shorten it for the AHR. You could absolutely but why? It's your time to celebrate. You don't have to go the whole route. You could put a single flower in your hair to make it more simple if that's what you want. But the thing about a destination wedding is there are no rules. Go with what you're comfortable with, not what it her people think you should wear. My vote is for the long dress. Good luck and let us know the final decision.

Both dresses are gorgeous, but I do have to say that the long one is just stunning! I totally agree and think it will go perfectly for an Italy wedding. And I can see that it has potential to be shortened but at the same time I don't think you'd have to do that. It has a rather elegant feel, and if it were me I would go with the long one. You do only get married once, and on the day you don't want to be there wishing you were in the other dress. Hope that helps.

Both are gorgeous - but you never know what the short one will look like until you order it and try it on.  Is it able to be returned if it doesn't work?

Hi, 

The trend of wedding dresses is turned towards rather short dresses. I propose you a blog of a friend who is really very well and who will be able to give you advice as for your final choice between these two dresses: http://anallureevent.com/ 

I hope it helps you.

I and my partner are going to get married on August 12th. We met each other through a lesbian dating website. Both of us want that day to be a memorable day. We are in confused on which dress to wear for the wedding ceremony. Any suggestion on lesbian wedding dress? I prefer white, whereas my partner prefers of-white. Which one do you think will look good? Should we go for same dress or different one? Share your thoughts.

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
