Re: have you heard of

^^ yes but that website is for girls who want the real dress, not just a fake, and cant afford it brand new. i know i would much rather have the original, than a knock off that isnt the same pattern or fabric. but thats just me. most of the second hand gowns are basically perfect anyway after they ...

Re: have you heard of

I must admit there is a lady selling "my" dress on there- she stated hers was originally $2300 but mine at full price was oonly $1899. I guess it varies from shop to shop.. She is trying to now sell hers for $1000. I guess some people try getting as much as they can- I know I really want t...

Re: Townsville - Part 2

Hi roxo, Doing your own flowers can be good and I was originally going to do it, but ended up getting a florist who was about the same price. 8O It was Deb at Artistic Flowers - she works at home again now (she did briefly have a shop at Fairfield) and she was just fantastic. Everyone commented on ...

Re: Veil or Hoop for Sale?

I have my hoop- I would say it'd fit a size 12-14. I was a size 10 when I got married & it fell down going up the aisle!!! It was a good thing in the end coz it prevented me from crying! Its white- I bought it off bay but was too short so I had to get mum to add a bit of stretchy material to the...

Re: do you like your new surname?

i was honoured to take on DH last name, sad to see mine go, however I HATE it at times. I cringe at the thought of being known the same as my MONSTER in law. :evil: Wish the damn cow would go back to her maiden name as she has been divorced now twice & hasnt been with my fil for 15yrs +

Re: Advice needed! Should I go strapless? And HOW?

Guest Books

Hi Gals! I found this site about 2 weeks before my wedding & while the USD was sky high!! - now that its pretty much even it might be worth your perusal- they are original & funky! Really loved them- I had only 50 guests & my book has spaces for about 500! So I just think what a waste of...

Re: Advice needed! Should I go strapless? And HOW?

gorgeous dress, i love one shoulder dresses but i personally would get the strap removed. i think the rest of the detail shows heaps more without the strap but that is just my opinion. if you did want to go strapless i would get a dressmaker to remove it only to ensure it was done properly. either ...

Re: am I doing to much?

I am in 2 minds about this- I sorta think that the bride should pay as its her wedding - esp if you choose everything & dont give them a say. however, things like shoes I was pretty easy going with - 3 out of 4 of my bms are all friends (same town) they all agreed to want to have matching shoes-...
