- Wedding: June 2014
So I am in love with Vera Wang “Hayley”. The problem is, nobody else seems to like it, especially in the coloured version, which I was leaning towards. I wanted honest opinions on what you think about the dress. I have tried on around 25 dresses and my reaction to most of them has been underwhelming, lots of beautiful dresses but nothing special/unique.
Here is the dress in the nude:
Here is a thread with some beautiful pictures of a real bride in it:
And this is the ivory version:
I unfortunately don’t have pictures of myself in it since the salon did not allow photography, but I am pale, average height, on the thinner side, if that helps.
Our venue is a beautiful outdoor ceremony space and a reception at a more upscale inn ( so think outdoor whimsy, but not rustic). Our theme is Midsummer Night’s Dream. Expecting 70-80 people. My image is of a dress that’s more whimsical, dreamy, faerie like, romantic, etc.
Some reasons people don’t like it: It’s too poofy, doesn’t look like a wedding dress, is not figure flattering, peope think it will date badly or I will regret it.
I mean, I know that I shouldn’t care what people think, and to some extent I don’t…. but it is still a bummer if people hate it, you know?
Should I keep looking for something? Are there any other dresses that you would suggest that would match this theme?
