I have a little bit of a dilemma, well first let me tell you that i haven’t gone dress shopping but i have browsed around the internet (like crazy) So i came upon the Maggie Sottero “jenna” dress at first i jst LIKED it. I wanted to see different angles of the dress which are not provided on the Maggie website so i googled the dress and i saw ACUTAL brides with the jenna and thats when i fell in love! So i called up 2 of my BM’s told them to google the dress, one of my BM’s said “i dnt like the bottom” the other said “when i first saw the dress i pictured it in black, with a white sash, and a woman with red lipstick on smoking a cigarette” she also said that it was too simple and that the dress could be worn to any other event. BEES, PLEASE BE HONEST WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK ABOUT THE DRESS. Now keep in mind i haven’ t tried on the dress and i haven’t seen it in person.

It’s really only your opinion that counts here. You’re the one wearing it, you’re the one getting married in it and you’re the one who’s going to take pictures in it. Who cares if your friends don’t like the dress? There’s an article out there that says 1/3 of your wedding guests will love everything you did, while 1/3 will hate everything you did and the other third will not care either way. You can’t satisfy everyone and given that 2/3 of your guests won’t agree to your choices, you might as well do what you want and wear the dress that you want. At the end of the day, it’s you who lives with the decisions you make not your friends. If your friends dislike the dress so what, as long as YOU like the dress. At least you’ll be happy wearing the dress of your dreams to your wedding! Happy dress shopping 🙂

if i had the right body type to pull it off, i wouldn’t mind wearing it. it’s got the sexy part where you see your curves and it’s also got the princess poof. it’s the best of both worlds, really.

I feel your pain. I tried on a dress and fell in love with it. I took two of my three bridesmaids to see it and they weren’t too fussed. As a result, I put a deposit on another dress. The entire time I had the other dress in the back of my head. When I took the third bridesmaid to see my new dress, I also showed her the other dress (never telling her that I wanted it) and she gushed. I ended up changing to the dress. I’ve shown some people and they love it and others are not too sure. At the end of the day, I felt right in it and it was what I wanted. I can’t tell you how many weddings I have been to where people are split down the middle on dresses. Truth is, it’s about how you feel.
I really like the dress you’ve posted. I would however try it on before you shut down other options. Most of the dresses I had shortlisted from websites didn’t live up to expectations in real life!

I love the dress!! Definitely go try it on. It’s all about what you want and how you feel about the dress, and you never know, once they see you in it, they could change their minds…or you could change yours. Have fun dress shopping!!

If you love it, that ‘s what matters. There are a few bees with this dress. Contrary to what your BM said, I wouldn’t say it was a simple dress at all. One bee Purple Unicorn got married in Jamaica last month wearing this dress, you can see some great pics of it here in a current thread http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/my-wedding-is-featured-in-weddingstar

If you love it then get it. I personally don’t like it at all. Its really harsh, where I think wedding dresses should be more elegant, pretty, and soft.

You never know until you go try it on! And it’s YOUR opinion that counts, it’s YOUR wedding dress!

I was told by my sister that my dress was ugly. Who cares. If you love it and you feel beautiful in it, that is all that matters.

I personally don’t like the dress but it’s your opinion that counts. everyone has different taste. you must try it on and see how you feel in it. you will get “THAT” feeling if it’s the one!!! 🙂 good luck.

Honestly, until you’ve tried on dresses and have pictures of you in it, I wouldn’t even ask for other people’s opinion. After that, your opinion is still the only one that matters. When they get married, they can wear whatever they want.

also, you shouldn’t ask people what they think of your dres… imagine you find something you absolutely love and you fall madly in love with it and then you post a pic of it on here and ask for opinions and people say they don’t really like it? it will make u feel awful!!!!!!!! find something you like and be 100% happy with it and don’t show it to everyone!!! 🙂 🙂

I’ve tried on the Jenna, and it looked nice actually but my sister thinks the bottom doesn’t match well with the bodice. If you think it’s the dress for you, go for it. Your BM’s will get to pick their own wedding dresses so they should stay out of picking yours (unless something looks bad on you and they are being honest).
I’m still early in my dress shopping and it’s not at the top of my list but we’ll see! You should try it on.

you need to try it on. i tried it on because i thought i would love it in pictures, and it was just tooo much dress for me. i can see how it would look good on some people and they’d love it but i just felt like i was going to a quincenera party or something (not sure if i spelled that right) but it kinda felt like a huge over the top prom dress for a very outgoing flamboyant person. and it was just heavy – a lot of dress. but i did get “wows” in it. in the end, its what YOU like (but I know family and friends reaction does weigh into this immensley.)
