Did you end up with the dress you wanted?

Recommended Posts

My experience was like Kate's. I had seen pictures of things that I liked but had no idea how they would look on me. I knew for sure I didn't want a big poofy gown. For a DW i didn't want to try & carry a big 'ol dress on the plane. So I tried on all different styles, fabrics, necklines, etc. with the exception of big heavy gowns, and fell in love with a dress I tried on the very first day I went shopping. I kept looking to see if I could find anything I liked better and I never did. I went back and bought the original dress I had fallen in love with. So I got my dream dress...once I realized what my dream dress was gonna be.

I thought I had my "dream" dress, but now I keeping second guessing myself because I see so many that I love. I definitely bought it too soon; which my mom warned me not to do, but I loved it so much I had to have it. I do still love it, but wish I shopped around more.

I pretty much did. I didn't get too excited about dresses in magazines since the only ones I kept tearing out were super pricey and knew I would never be able to afford one. I just knew I wanted something with lace and fitted, and thats what I found. I actuall wanted something with a sweetheart top and lower back, so once my dress arrives, I may alter it. If not, I'm still very happy with my dress.

My dream dress is a Monique Lhullier and I would never have asked my parents to buy it nor could justify buying it myself. So after I came to this realization, I bought a dress which was pretty but way too formal for a beach wedding. I acted waaay too hasty. Luckily the bridal shop let me exchange it (since I bought the sample off the rack) and I went with a more "beachy" dress. It's still not my dream dress but I'm praying once it's altered and I'm all done up, I will love it too. DOn't get me wrong, it's a gorgeous Pronovias dress and pretty unique but that damn Monique dress keeps haunting me!!

 

P.S. I did not like me dress at all on the rack but it looks MUCH different on, so try on a bunch even if you don't think it will look good on you!

    • 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.
