I finally got to try on my dress with the corset back (and actually fitting), and I loved it in person but the photos are leaving me a little underwhelmed. I’m hoping it’s just the bad lighting, and the fact that it’s not steamed yet. Or maybe nerves…anyone else feel great in their dress and then start to question it as soon as they take it off? Or am I the only crazy one 🙂

@jennmariee: Girl you look beautiful! And I’m sure in person you’re even more gorgeous in your dress! Sometimes photos just don’t do real life justice. 🙂

I think it looks great! I think you’ll feel better after it’s been steamed, because honestly it looks gorgeous

Thanks so much ladies 🙂 I need to just stop stressing about it.

I think you are worried b/c of the poor lighting. The dress looks like it fits you very nicely, and looks great on you, but the wall color, the light skin and white dress and poor lighting just makes the photo look bad. It’s not the dress or the fit!! You look fantastic in it!!

@jennmariee: Love it, so pretty! It’s normal to doubt yourself, especially being on here and seeing all the other lovely dresses.

You look SO gorgeous!
And I doubted my dress about a million times, too. But every time I put it on I loved it more and more!

I think you look great! The lighting in the pictures is different but you don’t have anything to worry about with the dress 🙂

I think it is definitely the poor lighting! I get the same feeling when I look at the pictures of my dress. That dress looks awesome on you though! I dont think you have anything to worry about!

I had the same feelings—loved it while I was wearing it during the fittings, but doubted it when looking at pictures of me in it. Keep in mind that you are not having pros take your pics right now. That’s what makes a huge difference! I love the way that I look in my dress in my pro pics.

Yeah the second photo has TERRIBLE lighting! Wowza! YOU look lovely, but yes, it’s an awful picture. This is why we hire professionals for wedding that know how to work with every lighting! There is a thread floating around here that I *LOVE* where the girls post their pics in their dress in the bridal shop and then their real wedding picture in the dress from the pro photographer. It’s AMAZING.
It’s not the dress at ALL! It’s a bad pic with bad lighting. Don’t stress! You’ll be gorgeous! If anyone knows where that thread is I think it will REALLY help you feel better! It did for me! 🙂

Thank you all, you’re right, the lighting is awful. The seamstress took the photo and she warned me that when she takes photos for clients they always come out bad because of the shadows. I need to just remember how it looked in person and relax 🙂 Thanks so so much!!
