I personally love it on you! Your figure looks great in it.

I think it’s gorgeous!  And it’s not super poofy for a ballgown so unless you add to it I think you’ll get used to it. Have you tried it on again since receiving it? Maybe you could afford a lower priced reception dress and compromise by wearing both?

Maybe you could have some of the crinoline underneath removed so it’s not so poofy? That might make you feel better about it.

For being a ballgown, the dropped waist gives it more of an A-line silhouette. I’m not a ballgown fan either, but I think you look lovely. If your FI doesn’t like poofy, perhaps there is a layer of crinoline you could remove to narrow the skirt? (Not that I think it needs it.)

I think the dress fits you just beautifully! It definitely does not wear you and I don’t think it’s really all that poofy BUT if you feel it might help to remove some crinoline layers go for it! 🙂

@Maddybug:  Go back to the store (alone) and try it on, and see how you feel about it. You wont have anyone around you trying to sway you’re opinion and you’ll really get to see how you feel about it.

You look stunning in that dress.  Have you continued to look at dresses online? Then stop.  It’s like your FI- there might be another more handsome, more witty, more compatible man out there for you.  But who cares, you love the one you have and you can stop looking.

I agree that you should go back alone to try it on and see how you feel without other people swaying you. I’d also try to remember that even though your FI may not like pouf, he will probably only see you and your amazing figure in that bodice. He won’t be looking at the skirt. He’ll be looking at your boobies. I mean, really.

@allyfally:  +1 excellent advice

@Maddybug:  I personally think it’s beautiful on you, but do YOU feel like the bride that you want to be on your wedding day?  That’s what matters.  I think a good way to figure that out is to go try on the dress yourself and see what you think.  Good luck!

@Maddybug:  you look really beautiful in that dress. if i were you i would go shopping again and try on more dresses including that one. either go alone or bring 1 trusted friend– who was not there the first time youo tried it on.

i was convinced i would never get a dress with beading– my dress had beading– and it was GORGEOUS. it’s very common to get a dress unlike what you were expecting!

@Maddybug:  Maybe you just need to spend a little more time with the dress on. I think it looks really beautiful on you.

I think it looks fabulous. And not over the top poofy either!

It’s a big purchase so I think a little regret is normal, but I’d keep it. It looks great! In the end, you’ll only be wearing it for a few hours anyway… not worth worrying about it. If it looked bad then I am sure someone would say something… but it doesn’t.
