@indyJEEP:  Welll great! πŸ™‚ Good luck w/trying each on now (even more decisions! LOL) 

As far as bridesmaids, what I did was take the ones that will be the most difficult (busty, curvy, etc.) in my case VERY busty! & see how the dresses looked on them (if you can even get an idea from the sample) & go from there.. My sisters were going to be the most difficult so I made sure I took both of them each time when I was trying to make a desicion. 

Originally, I had chosen these three from davids bridal (& Really liked them, except once I saw the taffeta in person, I just didnt think I liked the material) as far as the dresses though they were ADORABLE & the samples were actually my sisters sizes which was great.  I would have chosen them had the not been taffeta (I just like the chiffon look for my beach wedding, taffeta isn’t really as “beachy”)

I can’t find the third one, but it was a strapless bubble hem.. All very cute.. I’m a big mori lee fan because there are SO many color choices..

Good Luck Smile

Thanks so much everyone for posting the pictures of Catarina. I bought this dress 4 months ago and i get the dress at the end of august. i just cant wait!!!! i went for the ivory over ivory and every day i look online for pictures of real brides to see how it looks. My wedding is in december on the beach in st lucia and i am worried its going to be hot wearing it but i so dont care cos the dress is fabulous. I only tried on a size 12 and i ordered a size 6 so also good to hear that it looks better in your own size.

Cant wait to see more pictures if anyone posts it online soon!!!!

@Brooke_okeefe1983: Ooh I hope you’ll post pictures once you get it in πŸ™‚ I’ve tried a sample 10 and 12 and my dress will most likely be a 6 or 8 according to my sales woman, so I’d get to see a more “finished” product if you posted haha.

As of right now, I’m getting the ivory also but I finally found a store that has an oyster sample so I’m going to check that out and then put my order in. Then I’ll definitely have piece of mind as far as color goes. I’m going to try to take pictures so that I can put them up side by side as a comparison for future Catarina brides also.

@indyJEEP:

Ive decided not to have a veil. we are getting married on the beach so i have bought a crystal and pearl side headband for my hair. Cute little crystal and pearl studs and decided not to wear a necklace. i think the bust has sooo much detail it is not needed. What have you decided to wear with the dress???

@Brooke_okeefe1983: Oh that sounds very cute! I wish I could do a beach wedding! The fam didn’t like the idea too much. Plus, all of the local beaches here are on the chilly side even in the California summer weather. What colors are you doing? 

I haven’t thought about accessories too much, but I’m planning on wearing diamond stud earrings. On the Maggie website, the model for the Catarina dress is wearing bracelets that kinda look like the beading/crystals along the top, so I was going to see about ordering some extra crystals to do something like that and make a bracelet… not sure yet.

As for the veil, I’m stuck between 2 fingertip length options. Not sure!! I have plenty of time, so I’ll probably just keep trying different styles on.

LOVED the oyster – finally got to try it and finally ordered my dress! My photos didn’t turn out too great, so I’ll take more & post them when I go back to show my mom the color on this one. Now the waiting begins!

They quoted 4-6 months for delivery. I’ll have to have lots of alterations, unfortunately, because not one part of me is the same size! They had to consult over what size to order since I’m a size 4 bust, 6 waist, and 8 hips. They decided that an 8 was the best route to go and they’re going to take in everything up top. I guess I won’t know what the more “finished” dress will look like until after I have a few fittings. Sigh.

I’m SOOO excited!! Smile

@indyJEEP: Thats great πŸ™‚ !! So glad for you!! Glad you liked the oyster (I love it too but thats a little bias!) Haha.. I just think that it makes the lace “pop” out more, I loved the ivory too but without being able to actually see it I just had to go with the oyster.  You gotta post pictures as soon as you get them! My first official dress fitting is 1 month before my wedding (September 20th) which is almost 1 month from today! So exciting!

My Bachelorette party is next weekend & my bridal shower is in 4 weeks. Everything is coming up so quickly! Its such an exciting time, ENJOY every second of being engaged, I have πŸ™‚   I can’t wait to post some pictures of me in the final dress and on the wedding day! Ive decided not to do a veil (I was even looking into some birdcage ones, may stilll try one on) but I’ll pick out my jewelry with my first dress fitting which I am pretty excited for too πŸ™‚

@AKeen: Thanks! I’m very happy with the oyster color… it makes the lace pop big time! I hope your Bach. party is a blast and that all of the “last minute” stuff is going/will continue to go well & please post pictures when you get them πŸ™‚

My maid of honor just started telling me about some of her ideas for the bachelorette and bridal shower – very excited! Of course, that is pretty far away from now, but ever so exciting.

Hi ladies! So my dress isn’t getting in until one month before my wedding! :O  I’m planning on doing my make-up/hair trial this weekend while I’m back home for a wedding shower – but I realized I probably need a veil for that! Doh! I went ahead and ordered one from E-bay (only $20 and I figure if I don’t like it with the dress it’s not a huge loss). Anyway, wanted to see if you guys had any ideas on hair styles for this dress? My fiance loves my hair down, but I don’t want to take away from the back of the dress.

@indyJEEP: LOVE the OYSTER! Looks great on you & I can really tell a difference between them! My bachelorette party was literally the BEST time of MY life! We went to Put-In-Bay here in Ohio which is a big party island on Lake Erie πŸ™‚ SO FUN

First dress fitting in 20 days, and bridal shower in 12! Will definitely post some pictures from the fitting because I plan to select some jewelry then too. Im still up in the air on  the birdcage veil (I am going to have my best friend do my hair the day of the fitting similar to the wedding hair so I can hopefully get the full effect)

I’ll keep all you Catarinas posted!
