Whenever I try my dress on, I feel great and think it looks good. I’m always with at least my Maid/Matron of Honor (it lives at her house), and everyone always says it looks amazing. . . But whenever I look at pictures, I realize I look hideous! I wonder if they’re lying to me or overgushing. My wedding is just a few weeks away, and I just want to cry!
Anyone else have this problem?

Maybe you could ask your friends and family for their honest opinion? You might just be stressed and having unreasonable thoughts related to the wedding. Tell them your concerns and ask them to be honest.

I have the same problem. I really hate the photos of my dress in the salon but when I put it on, I love it.
My solution was to trust my gut on how much I loved myself in the dress. I asked someone to take a video of me trying it on.
See this thread below of all the salon/trying ong/fitting pics vs the pro pics on the day of. Many ladies feel the same way and then are validated once they see their pro pics.

@mrsbruff2b: Thanks for sharing that! Although, I’m convinced my dress looks way worse than any of these ladies, haha.

I have to say it NO ONE looks bad in a wedding dress unless it doesn’t fit them correctly. I bet you look beautiful.

@Jamie42003: Maybe it doesn’t fit me properly! Maybe I have three weeks to lose 10 pounds! OFF TO THE GYM!

You don’t look hideous, I remember your dress, and I know you look beautiful in it! Don’t you worry. I think it’s just nerves! *BIG HUGS*
