Hi guys I’m new to WeddingBee. My name is LIta and I am not really sure when I am getting married (sometime late this year lol!) I say that because my fiancé is in the military and has a crazy schedule. I do have my dress. It’s a Stella York, style 5835. I was in love with it immediately and ordered it. Well once I looked at the pics of me in it, I started to have second thoughts.the dress is pretty don’t get me wrong, but it didn’t give me the wow factor I was looking for for some reason. It did look better with the beaded sash the attendant gave me but still….what do you guys think? I ordered the dress 2 sizes bigger to accommodate the “girls” because I am heavier at the top, so that is why it is not fitted up top. I also have the worst back fat in some of the pics…ugh! Sorry the pics are sideways, I couldn’t figure out how to rotate them.

Welcome to the BEE!!!!
I think your dress is beautiful!!! Don’t get another one! It will need taken in a little at your waist since you ordered two sizes up, and once that is done it will look even better! Gorgeous! No need to worry!

@Litabita: I think its stunning on you!! I think maybe a different belt would go a long way! I was ehh about my dress until we changed up the sash and them my heart melted! Maybe one a little more blingy and a statment necklace will change the whole look!

@Litabita: Your dress is beautiful! Have you had alterations done? It looks to me like it will fit you like a glove if they form it a bit more to your body.

It’s gorgeous and you look lovely in it… trust your first instincts and believe it’s the one!
A quick photo in an ill-fitting gown at a store is never going to look amazing, but on the day it will be all that you have imagined 🙂

Most brides who only have a sample that isn’t their size to try on feel that way. Wait until it comes in and it is yours. That is the only way my dress regret went away.

You look absolutely AMAZING! I am biased towards the dress though, I would totally get it if I could find a place to try it on ><. You look beautiful though 🙂
Just one question, is it a light dress to wear?

I think it’s beautiful! I think what you’re seeing is something that could easily be fixed with a good tailor. And I see what you’re saying about the beaded sash, a little sparkle would look amazing with it.

Thanks guys for the reassurance : ) It hasn’t been altered yet, but I will definitely post pictures once it does. I am definitely going to add a sash to it to jazz it up a little!
