Thinking Of Ordering A Second Dress:)

OK, so I'm getting ready to order my ceremony gown when the business goes back into production after the Chinese New Year. I fell in love with it six months ago and haven't been tempted to even look at anything else so I'm completely sure of the choice.


BUT (tee hee)...we're going on a short honeymoon in Mexico and I've ALWAYS wanted to do a beach Trash The Dress shoot. For those who haven't heard of them (I think most brides have by now), it's a shoot where you hit the beach (or the jungle, or a cenote)--basically any where you would never dream of seeing a bride in a gorgeous, expensive wedding dress. They can be really sexy pics, playful, romantic..whatever you like. I'll post a few from the photographer we're considering (I love her, truly).


ANYway..I'm thinking about getting this dress done because it just screams "shipwrecked bride" to me for some reason. I would DEFINITELY PUT PANELS IN UNDER THE TOP! I'm not into the whole lingerie as wedding wear thing. But I'd love some opinions on what you guys think of this dress for a beach shoot. The designer is Pnina Tornai.


Here's the gown!

And the pic from the designer's site..which I don't like much cuz it's WAY too poofy for me. I don't want as much tulle.

And here are a few of our photog's TTD pics.

Yes, Mrs Solka! They just sent me my item number Thursday but the lady in presales told me it wouldn't go into production til after they get back from the holiday.


You're right about going all out since this is "it". Thats what I keep telling myself when I think about the expense (and the fact that FI is probably going to have a cow over having to take 2 hrs out of his precious beach vacay to do another photoshoot). But I mean, we'll be there and it will probably be years before we get another real vacation. I think I'm gonna go for it! As long as they can do the dress for under $300 that is. The budget is stretched piano wire tight as it is.

I've never heard of that idea before but I love it and what a beautiful gown you've chosen, if you can afford it go for it this is the one time you get married so you should make it what you want :)

I'm definitely gonna do it. I just have to figure out when I can budget it in....seems like all I've done lately is pay out money for this thing! Where is a trust fund when ya need it, ladies? Trying to be responsible and prioritize things in the right order, and logically I know this can wait. It's just hard! We females...lol. The dress(es) are EVERYthing.


Thanks for the feedback! I will keep you guys posted!
