So I went to a wedding a few weeks ago and I saw some pictures that the bride and groom posted. I noticed that I was in the background of one of the pictures and I just looked huge!
So of course I go back to look at my pictures of myself in my wedding dress, and I like the way I look from the front, but I don’t like how I look from the sides. I am feeling really insecure and just not pretty. My wedding is a few weeks away and crash dieting doesn’t work!
Am I crazy? I mean do I look ok?
sorry its sideways I couldn;t fix it!

@Daizy914: I’m going to be COMPLETELY honest with you, I hope that’s ok… and in my COMPLETE honesty,all I see is a stunning bride who chose a gorgeous dress that looks perfect on her, and a beautiful veil to boot. Stop stressing and being so hard on your self, you look fantastic.

I think you look gorgeous! It is hard not to judge yourself. I feel ya. One thing I would like to point out is that 10 years from now, you will look at this pic and think “omg I looked so beautiful, i cant believe I thought i looked fat!”
This has happend to me after each of my 3 children lol. I thought I was fat, and when i look back at those pics, i was no where near fat. It crazy what our eyes do to ourselves when we look in a mirror.

@Daizy914: You have a gorgeous figure. More importantly, you have an even more beautiful smile. And on your wedding day that is what is going to be most important to people; seeing that the Bride is truly happy.
P.S. Your FI’s mouth is going to hit the floor when you walk down the aisle!

You look beautiful, and your dress is stunning! Honestly, you have a really lovely figure, and you’ll look amazing on the day.
It’s likely that in the photos you saw you were caught unawares at a bad angle in an instant that was probably less that a split-second in real life. It happens to me all the time – and it’s even worse if you’re standing next to someone skinnier than you! Happens to me all the time with my really tiny friends, so I always make sure I stand in the middle for group shots now and turn slightly sideways. I’m not fat by any means, but they’re all so slender and waif-life that next to them I look huge.

Being in the background of a picture almost guarantees that you’re being shot at an unflattering angle, and not posing or paying attention.
You look beautiful 🙂

I hear ya. I am having the same concerns. I do not like my dress now as much as the sample because it is a different fit and i feel like I look awful from the side but stellar from the front. I’m dieting now eating almost exclusively grilled chicken and salads, cutting out pop and junky foods. I’ve lost about 5 lbs. I think u look great tho, so don’t worry too much. Maybe some small changes could help get a few lbs off to help with ur confidence. But seriously, u don’t really need it.

Girl, you look stunning. Sometimes we get ourselves down by comparing ourselves to others. But don’t worry. you look beautiful and you will look great in your pictures.
