I hate my dress. I hate my hair. I feel like my hips look like they’re about a mile wide. Ugh. I wish I had a wedding stylist or something. I wish I understood what I would look like in pictures. I have 40″ hips and a 28″ waist, which is very curvy and the dress I chose did not do me any favors. I want to buy a more flattering dress and make my husband dress up to have pictures taken with me, but I also don;t want him to think I’m insane. We still haven’t gotten our album, cause every time I look at picture to try to choose them I get upset and have to stop.

I never lie. If I see abride who I truly think looks awful, I would never say “oh, you look amazing in your dress!” or anything like that.
That being said, that dress is TOTALLY flattering on you. I have the same proportions as you and I get where you’re coming from. you look great!

@hellosteinberg: Can we see more pictures? I actually think you look great in that one, but it is far away. Usually we women are our own worst critics!

Here are some more. I decided to leave the front of my hair straight and it wound up in my face in a lot of the pictures. Not thrilled about that. Don’t get me wrong, the dress is really pretty. It’s the Maggie Sottero Elya gown. I just think I could have made a better choice for my figure.

Stop. You look stunning! For some reason us ladies tend to rip ourselives apart(I blame it on the culture) that we are never good enough, pretty enough, thin enough etc etc. You look good and your venue looks awesome too. Nice view!
Please don’t beat yourself up over it. As I said before you look stunning.

@bebero: +1. If I see a post like this and end up thinking, “gosh, she’s right” then I just don’t comment. I have no interest in being mean, but I also have no interest in lying.
@hellosteinberg: You look amazing. Please stop thinking otherwise. Not only are you super pretty, but that dress suits you perfectly. Perfect I tell you! Lol.

To be fair…this is my favorite pic. As long as my hips are slightly turned. It’s Ok.

For the record, yes, I’ve struggled with these same issues. However, I want to tell you, you look as if you DID have a stylist. Your dress is gorgeous. It’s also flattering to your figure. If I didn’t think so, I would not say so. Your bouquet and accessories look amazing with your gown. Your entire look is stunning.
