@howsweetitis:  I am sure it looks just fine! Maybe she was playing the best friend role of agreeing with anything you say? I have a friend that does that and at times it can be annoying…

I bet if you posted a picture you would be met with disagreements!

I wholeheartedly believe that as brides we may take things to heart that we shouldn’t.  if you love your dress, wear her!  If you think you should take off a few pounds, do it. However, do not allow folks to sadden you concerning one of the happiest days in your life.  I learned a valuable lesson when shopping for my dress.  I went alone to make my purchase after gwttobh a million opinions when I took my family who are loving & supportive.  Buut, I began to second guess the dress I loved!  No way!  My dress, our day, & our love… Those are the only things that matter…oh my bouquet too:-). Good luck!

@Payless:  +1 sounds like she was just trying to agree with you and then realized she misunderstood and tried to backtrack. post a pic, the bees will be honest if you ask for honest opinions!

Is she typically critical? Then ignore it.

Is she truly an honest and good friend who wouldn’t make a comment like that for no reason? Then perhaps reconsider the dress.

Honestly, though, I don’t think I have ever seen a wedding dress make someone look fat as long as it was fitted properly. The style of modern wedding gowns is usually pretty fitted, and that is the opposite of something that would make you look heavier.

Honestly: the picture of you from the front looks a good 20 lbs heavier than the back shot. I truly believe this is because you are taking the photo of a mirror. If you look at the front of the dress in Pic #2, then the front doesn’t look that way at all.

I think Pic #1 is a shitty picture that does indeed make you look heavier than you are. If I hadn’t seen Pic#2, I would think it was the dress.
