@petalpetal:  Well they were probably trying to be supportive in a way. They probably want you to look the best on your big day and felt that these dresses were not the one. I would have no problem telling a friend that their dress choice didn’t suit them. I am thankful to my mum, sister and BFF for talking me out of the style of dress I wanted because I would have looked like a dolt on my wedding day. I was so sure it suited me and that the style worked on my figure. Yeah I was wrong.

@petalpetal:  If you want to elope, elope.  You deserve to feel the way you want to feel on your wedding day.  If you want to be princessy, go for it.  If you want to be casual with your fiance on a beach somewhere, do it.  

Life is too short to be spent bending over backwards for other people.  This is one of the times in your life that you truly get to be selfish and do what YOU want.

BTW, this applies to having a wedding and choosing a gown as well.  If you want to have a wedding and wear the dress you picked out, go for it.  Your day, your choice!  And I’m sure you’ll look great.  🙂

ITA. The percentage of brides, who are happy to giving into other peoples desires, seem far lower than those that stick reasonably to their own standards.

@petalpetal:  First dont worry about the boobs. Guys love boobs. Your FI will be thrilled. Moms are always more conservative. 

Also I dont know about you but Ive tried on at least 30 dresses and havent found “”the one””” yet. Maybe you just havent found that special style yet.

Awe sweetie! Don’t let anyone rain on your parade.  Remember that YOU are going to be the one to wear the dress, YOU are going to be the one to look back at the picutre so its your opinion that really matters.

Wear what your feel beautlful in.

Can we see some of the dresses?
