Ask a Question
Hey Ladies I have a Dilemma and need your Opinions Please.
I love the look of a veil, and I really want to wear one. But I not sure if I with look good with my dress. With the dress having the extra train that attaches at the neck I had a few people tell me I might be too much or take away from the gown.
What do all U ladies think. Please comment I really need Ur honest opinion and please let me know why U feel the way U do & what style U think I should wear. I think it will help me make my decision.
this been driving me crazy since the day I bought my dress almost 8 months ago.
If I do wear one I was thinking of going with one like the Pic list here with a single tier and just a lil bit of beading on the edge. or do U think I should go with a plain veil, or maybe one with a lace edge, or none al all.
The other photos are me in my dress.
Wonderful Reading For ALL BRIDES!
I found an AWESOME Book for Brides or anyone who loves Good Books!
I have been reading "Chicken Soup for the Brides Soul".
And I love it. It has been one of the best book I have read in years.
It is a collection of short stories form brides to be & Wives of all ages.
It has been very enlighten, inspirational, Funny, touching, & thrilling. I would Highly recommend it to all brides to be, newleywed wives, mothers & friends of brides, and wives that have been married for 40 years, and even the men in our lives.
It has made me smile, think, laugh & cry.
The stories are from people all over the world, and from various background.
They are tales of proposals, engagements, shopping for "The Dress", wedding day mishaps & happiness, newlywed excitement, and marriage after 40 years. and stories of commitment & everlasting love.
It one of those book that I can see myself pulling back out in 20 plus year and while reading it, remembering my own precious memories of my wedding day and unforgettable special molment of live with my loving husband and family.
Mon Bel Ami Chapel Las Vegas
This is the chapel that we decided on for r Vegas wedding.
Even though i haven't been there yet, I feel very confident in referring it for anyone who is considering vegas for their wedding. they have outstanding reviews on many sites. And so far they have live to or surpassed those reviews!
Believe me I spent hours upon hours and day after day researching the perfect location for r wedding. I made calls asked questions and read numerous review on probably almost every wedding chapel in vegas, including free-standing and hotel chapel. From Famous (featured in movies & where celebrities got married) to ones nobody has ever heard of.
indoor, outdoor, lakes, gardens, gazeboes and adventurous locations (ski-diving & helicopers) even drive thur ceremonies.
Vegas Has It All. Any type of wedding U can imagine.
U can do big or very small.
very formal & traditional, U can get married in Dracula's tomb,
or in ur jeans & harley Tee-shirt riding on rented matching bride & groom motorcycles.
For Us, we wanted something that had a lil of r unique personalities mixed with some tradition & some viva las vegas style.
So Mon bel ami is perfect. they do custom wedding to fit any budget.
style & size. I think the chapel is very pretty, not cheesy like alot of the chapels in vegas.
Ceremonies start at $199.00
they offer flowers, photography, dvd of ceremony, unity candle ceremony, internet broadcasting, limo transportation, dressing room for the bride, wedding cakes, receptions, unlimited wedding planning & ur own personal coordinator. and much more.
our wedding planner is the best, She is always available day or night, she even gave me her personal cell #. I can't say enough about Shell she is AWESOME!!!!
She seem to truely want to help me in ever way to make my wedding day as special as it can be.
they have work in my budget and have giving me all the lil extras I have asked for and even offered me many other add-on that i didnt think to ask for at no extra charge.
I'm very picky, especially about weddings (even more so about my wedding) ,being a wedding coordinator myself & a bit OCD, LOL.
EVERYTHING has to be Perfect.
and so far they have done just that, made everything perfect!!!!
And when I get back from vegas I'll give u more updates.
YEAH VEGAS HERE WE COME!!!!
THank U to all the great women on wedding by color!
Thanks U ladies for the wonderful comments about me & my dress, U don't know how good that made me feel.
I'm obviously not ur young traditional bride. I'm 44 years old and have 3 children. The youngest is my and my fiance'. my oldest is 18 and just graduated from high school, he is the Best man.
I was very hard picking out a dress that I felt comfortable in. I wanted something stunning, elegant, beautiful, but also age appropriate. And of course with 3 rugrats, we are on a tight budget.
We have been trying to have r wedding since before I got pregn. with r son.
SO I'm extremely excited to that we r finally Doing IT!
I CAN"T WAIT.
I starting to think this day would never come.
I'm overjoyed and getty like a school girl.
I think that every women regardless of age, size, weight, budget, etc. is entitled to have the wedding of their dreams and should feel like I do now, like a princess.
Congrat to all of u wonderful ladies also. ENJOY UR SPECIAL DAY U DESERVE IT!!!!!
Yeah found My Wedding Dress & Shoe at a great Prices!!!
thought it would take forever, but I actually found my dress without much complications. And I got it for a great price at David's Bridal.
Orginal price is around $699 or $799. Can't remember, and it's hanging in mom closet so my fiance' doesn't see it before the wedding. I went shopping at the end of the year and my dress was one of the styles being discondition, so the offered it to me for $300 if I took the one of the rack, which happened to fit me almost perfectly.
I dicided to looked around a lil more,before I made my decision. And when I went back they were having a hugh sale so I got an addition $50 off. It ended up costing me less than $300.
My shoes I found on a bride website that sell new and gently used wedding items. they are brand new in the box Italian silk Liz Rene Couture shoes that retail for $95.00. I only paid $10 plus shipping for them.
So the moral of the story is if u just take ur time to look around and do some investing You can find a lot of Terrific wedding Items at outstanding prices.
