I think it’s a beautiful dress! I feel like sometimes wedding dresses are so OVER embelished and crystalled that the bride can get lost in them. The bodice details and the belt are anything but simple, but not overdone.

I know it can be hurtful when people close to you don’t share your vision for your wedding, especially on a piece as important as your dress. Just know that it is your dress and as long as you love it that’s what matters. If she didn’t like it it’s probably best she didn’t pay for it, otherwise you’d have that cloud hanging over your head. If she brings it up I would just be like “Grandma, I appreciate you have your opinions, but the dress it bought and it’s a done deal, so I’d prefer if you kept negative comments to yourself because you’re being childish.”

futuremrsjohnsonrdh:  SO BEAUTIFUL!!!!! It reminds me a little bit of my own (except mine is spaghetti strap with deep V in the front). I think it’s stunning, and I love the twist in the front with the dainty belt. I think it’s so ladylike. 

Your grandma sounds stubborn. She’ll get over it when she sees how happy you are with it. She can’t stay mad about a silly wedding dress forever.

I would put it with a big white sash bow – instead of the thin bling (which you say isn’t really you anyway) and lower the sides of the sweetheart neckline, then it would be reaaaaally perfect 🙂

I love the simplicity and elegance of your gown. 

Sometimes I think moms/grandma’s pull what they would have loved to wear. Dress shopping is a whole new experience now that it was in their day and they make it about them, not you. 

Try not to take it to personally. My mother in law was the same way…..intense. Liked more bling….I have found I like simplicity myself. I actually went alone yesterday and really, really enjoyed it. If it would hurt my mom id buy my dress alone!

You look so pretty:-) great choice!  

Now, I have to get real re grandma. she loves you and just wanted you to be her idea of a full on princess bride.  Make up with her. Grandmas are a treasure. I miss my opinionated, loud, cranky grandma so much every day:-)
