It seems like the look that I wanted to go for initially just doesn’t suit me! When I went to try on dresses all the ones that I loved the look of and thought were me just didn’t suit when I tried them on. I love the whole boho theme at the moment with long flowy hair, vintage lace dresses, flowers in hair and side tiaras. However it looks like I am not going that way now. The only sort of hair accessory that looks good on me is a pointed tiara which surprised me since I love the side tiaras and flower circlets. I am also having a veil as they suit me even though I never really liked them much and I am having my hair up as my fiance prefers it that way although I like it down!
Is anyone else experiencing this? 🙂

@BridalBeckyBee: I went through this when shopping for my wedding dress. I thought I wanted an a line or a ballgown, and when I got them on, I just felt like it wasn’t doing my body an justice. I ended up with a fit and flare gown! 🙂 Definitely, normal to be surprised, which is why we always say it’s important to try things on first!

I tried on a fair number of dresses when working at a local DB, and I was pretty sure I was an A-line girl. After trying on several fit & flare and trumpet, I discovered they were much more flattering. Fast forward a few years (and a number of added pounds) and I was looking at the fit & flare. My MoH, who is usually always right, was telling me that she thought I would like the a-line or ballgown better. Well, I get in the fit & flare, and yep, that silhouette was still the best! I ended up with a simpler veil than I thought I would. As far as hairpieces, I’m still at a loss there…

@BridalBeckyBee: I did the same thing. I totally wanted a boho, free-style dress… but whenever I saw a few, I just thought hmmmm not for a wedding!
I too did not want a veil, but then I thought you only get 1 chance to wear one! So I got one! And I got a head piece too! which I definitely did not think that I would get. I actually ordered a flower crown from the florist before going dress shopping. I was THAT sure I would have a boho look haha. I plan on wearing the flower crown for pictures.

I walked into my first bridal appointment and told the consultant exactly what I wanted… or so I thought. A trumpet/fit-and-flair, all lace, straps, keyhole back. Nothing poofy or sparkly at all. The kind that seems to be omnipresent and popular right now. After trying on 30 dresses of that shape, I finally accepted that I looked old, frumpy, and pregnant.
I ended up with a lacy, slightly sparkly (sequin not beading), ball gown.
