Me and my amazing FI are doing a 1950’s photoshoot for our E-session. Since a surgery back in 2009 i gained 30 pounds and have stuggled with it, and just when i think i’ve come to terms that i am alive and happy the evil self conciousness sneaks back in and puts my mind at doubt. Here’s my outfit (please excuse the bad quality picture) its a dress from anthropolgy that i love and when i bought it made me feel stunning, but now with our E-session this sunday i am feeling doubt in my choice. 🙁 So i have included some photos, am i just being silly? I made the sash to help hide my ‘problem’ tummy area and that makes me happy. Also included a photo of FI outfit, i made all the details 🙂 — my hairdresser will be doing the blonde maniqine for my hair for some added vintage detail — any guidance for moving away from this self doubt would be greatly appreciated <3

Girl, you look stunning. And that dress is absolutely beautiful (LOOOOVE the theme, too!!) Let your self-concious opinions leave because those will show in a photo. Let it all go and have a blast with it! You are going to make a beautiful bride.

WHAT. That dress/sash combo is GORGEOUS and you look great. FI’s outfit is fantastic, too. Love the details.
I would recommend looking at every photo of Joan Holloway the internet has to offer AND/OR watching every episode of Mad Men between now and Sunday. When I feel insecure figure-wise, I just channel Joan.
Your photos are going to look AMAZING.

GAAH so cute!! Know what I think would look amazing? If you could get something to poof your skirt out a bit 🙂 It would go with the theme I think!

You are beautiful! I struggle with the same issues. It’s come down to me accepting who I am and realizing that my family and husband love me no matter what!
I’m a BIG fan of shape wear. Spanx are great, but you can get discount shape wear at TJMax or Winners (in Canada). It hides my areas that I feel self conscious about and it really makes me feel great!
