It looks like it was made for you… It’s hard to see it the whole thing based on the angle and the veil… but I love the neckline on you!

I think you look great in that dress! It’s gorgeous! Does it have a sash or am I seeing things? How long do you have until your wedding? Personally, I would keep it and wear it and but if you’re not happy, do you have time to at least try on a few other styles? Sometimes that can help bc it makes you realize that NO, your dress is the right dress….Good luck!

PS- My name’s Mara too! I don’t meet too many of us 🙂

Here’s how I feel about finding the dress.  I definitely had that moment of “this is THE ONE’ and was glowing (according to my mom) when I walked out to show her.  I love my dress.

Now with that being said, you should like your dress.  If you’re not feeling it maybe you should look into another??  Did you purchase this already? 

Also why are you having doubts?  What is it about the dress that is making you feel this way?

I think you look great in the dress but can I be honest?  I think the veil is a bit overpowering and it takes away from your dress.  Just my opinion.  The dress is gorgeous and should be the focal point.

Let us know what you do.  I’m interested to find out.

the dress and veil are both gorgeous – i have to admit the veil shows better in the picture you attached. i have to echo stephin tho – the veil is so gorgeous it might overwhelm the dress a bit.

What I can see it looks great on you! And the link you sent it does look so pretty. I love lace dresses! I think everyone goes through dress doubt maybe not a lot but in the back of your mind you wonder. I didn’t have that moment either but I know they dress I have is my dress and I love it so much!

But if you are doubting yourself a lot and it doesn’t feel right then maybe it isn’t. Go try on some more dress!

 

Good luck and let us know!

I think the dress looks great! We all have doubts. Especially after you buy your dress and you see so many other dresses. I didn’t have an overwhelming feeling that my dress was the “one” but I loved it and it flattered me and it was in my price range.

I love it…the veil is gorgeous too!!  You know, I’m a pretty emotional person (cry all the time at movies or sappy stuff on tv) so when I was going dress shopping I was sure I was going to cry when I found THE ONE, but I didn’t!!  Instead I kept jumping up and down (in the dress) saying this was it!!  I continued to try on more dresses but I kept going back to THE ONE.  So when I put it on again, I just knew…no tears just a huge smile and leg workout (lots of jumping).  No one I was with cried either, they all just knew too!  So don’t sweat it…if you love it just go with it!!

I think doubt is totally normal especially after seeing all the gorgeous dresses in yours.  You look phenomenal and the fact that you can wear your mother’s veil makes it really meaningful.  If you want, go try on other dresses.  I did when I was having doubts and it made me realize my dress is the one.

The dress looks beautiful on you!

I hope the crinoline gives you the look you are hoping for!

It’s hard to tell from this picture what the dress looks like on you, but from here it looks really nice to me! I think people are harping on the veil because it is a little overpowering. In my opinion, it all depends on the look you were going for. If you wanted a veil that would dress up the dress a little more and draw a lot of attention, you picked just right! If you were looking more for something to just give the dress a little accent, a veil is easier to swap out than an entire dress! Good luck!

From the other picture you posted, it really is a wow dress!  Plus, with your mom’s restored veil, I think you’ve got a really special ensemble!  I should say that altering the neckline the way you did was a great idea.
