Thanks for the info. I finally had a chance to check out the sites you recommended.

The wedding portion, none of them gave you an idea about a wedding at the lake in the Dallas area such Lake Lewisville, Lake Ray Hubbard and more. That is really what I want. This site u suggested is more like in another country. I was thinking something more local.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
I didn't make my self clear earlier about wedding dresses. I'm interested in a informal dress. Something thaut is nice looking but informal where I can be bearfooted or wear flip flops. This will be my 3rd marriage so no white will be good for me.

Hi again, and thanks very much for your accept and your reply.

I was offline at the time your post was received, so thanks also, for your patience.

These are beautiful places for waterfront weddings:

http://www.txweddings.com/resources/hilton-bella-harbor-lake-ray-hubbard


Also, this company that does weddings on Lake Ray Hubbard would be a good resource for you: http://www.lakesidebrides.com/home

You hadn't asked anything about wedding dresses in your earlier question to me, just the jewelry and the waterfront venues. If you would like me to research dresses for you, based upon your description, please let me know and I will be happy to help you with that. If you prefer not to wear white, would off-white be acceptable, or would you prefer a muted pastel color? Also, what about length? Do you want sleeveless? What will the groom be wearing? I'm assuming not a tuxedo? In what month will the wedding take place?

Best wishes,
Cher

I will check the links u sent soon.

One of of your previous wedding links also had wedding dresses. I would like something simple but pretty. I thought the linen material would be nice for a fall or summer wedding. I would prefer not white but off-white in my case since it wont' be either of us first wedding. Lengthwise I was thinking below the knee but above the ankles. No, sleeveless at this point. I want him to wear a linen white shirt with beige linen bants rolled up some what. Not date has been set yet. It's really up to me but I thought spring time. I think that would be a good time for a wedding by the water.

Hi again,

Try this link to view some off white linen dresses:

http://www.thefind.com/search?query=women%27s+off-white+linen+dress

I think you're going to have a problem finding a length below the knee in a linen dress, because I'm seeing mostly shorter dresses, as linen is quite a 'summery' material. I didn't understand if yes, you wanted sleeveless or NO sleeveless. : ) Also, would a 2 piece linen suit be acceptable? Approximately what size are you looking for? That might help me narrow it down to some specific styles.

I found one I absolutely LOVED, but it was only in light purple and white--no offwhite. The style was very simple and it was right below the knee, with a cap sleeve.

I'm still searching other sites for you, but please let me know if you find anything you like, or similar to what you're looking for, at the link above. Also, are you looking to buy in a store, locally, or would you order online?

I hope you have found this answer helpful; if so, please click 'Accept' and leave positive feedback. If you need additional information, please click 'Reply'. Thanks for the opportunity to be of help.

Cher

The length is not a problem as long as its not to the ankels. I would like to see that light purple dress. I'm size 12 or 14 in dresses currently. No, sleeveless. Prefer sleeves mid length.
Expert:  Cher replied 4 years ago.
Hi again,

Here is the dress I thought might be good for you; it has cap sleeves, as I mentioned:

I'm having a hard time finding the following specs:

marquise style diamond
platinum metal
with baguettes on the side
size 8
color: very clear
clarity: flawless
ct: 2 to 5

Any ideas where I can find such a ring? I may have to customize is what it looks like to me.
Expert:  Cher replied 4 years ago.
Hi again, and thanks for your question about the ring specs.

I was offline when you posted your question, so also thanks for your patience.

Yes, after researching, I do think you will ultimately need to customize, which should not be difficult to do at any fine jewelry store, however, I have found this jewelry site, where you can get and idea of all the designs available, just to get a basic idea:
http://www.rothemcollection.com/pc/viewcategories.asp?idCategory=169

Also, at this particular jeweler's site (above), you can make an 'offer' for the ring you want to buy (scroll down to the bottom of the page).

With this type of marquise cut ring, for example, you could add baguettes on each side of the solitaire and design it yourself:
http://www.rothemcollection.com/pc/viewPrd.asp?idproduct=1609&idcategory=169
http://www.rothemcollection.com/pc/viewPrd.asp?idproduct=1640&idcategory=169

When you contact a jeweler online and/or go in person to look at rings, you will be able to ask for the clarity and 'grade' of stone you would like. Here is more info about the "4C's" of diamonds:
