    really the same thing happend to me and its a crappy feeling and your not going to like my answer but it goes back to how u FEEEL in the dress. sometimes ur mind can play tricks on you. when u get the dress u have to stop STOP stop looking i made that mistake and had guilt for a while. but then later on when i put my dress on without negative thought i could just smile. dress cold feet sucks but meh most girls get it.

     

    i adore maggie sottero and wish i could have afforded one i think you look absolutly stunning cell phone and all =]

     

    although its hard to vote not seeing u in the paloma

     

    hope things settle out

    Hi date twin!

    I’ve tried on the Rhianna Royale, and I think it’s much more spectacular in the flesh than in photos. I’ve seen it in some pics and I wouldn’t look at it twice, but when I tried it on it took my breath away. In 3 months’ time, I doubt your fiance will even remember seeing the picture – it was a throw away comment. How many girls on here hate their dress on the model, but love it on themselves? Think of it like that – when he sees you in it, he’ll love it, because it’s you. 

    The Paloma Blanca dress is pretty, but it’s a very different look. You must have chosen Rhianna for a reason. I’m wondering if your initial feelings are more to do with your change in weight than the dress itself? I think you look beautiful (and very slim) in the photo, but if it’s your weight that bothers you, I can recommend the 30 Day Shred – 30min per day and I lost a dress size in a month. 

    If I were you I’d try and remember what it is you love about your dress, and try and let go of associated mother/fiance/weight stress. You will look fabulous on your big day.

    @cristinajanusz: Wow! What a spectacular dress. I agree with WhiteRoseRed – he won’t even remember the comment. You will look fabulous on your wedding day in that dress. A little working out will relieve some stress as well. Grab a buddy and start walking/jogging/swimming/cycling, whatever suits you. 

    I am envious! That dress is just gorgeous.

    I think your dress looks great on you!!!! 🙂 Youre going to look absolutely beautiful! And to tell you the truth, he probably wont even remember what he saw in the picture, and as long as you are confident and feel beautiful in your dress on your wedding day, then you will knock his socks off no matter what you wear!  If you feel amazing in the dress, then stick with it.

     If  you are looking for an exercise program, I recommend INSANITY! Its a 60 day program that comes with with a meal plan and the results are great for losing a few pounds and definitely toning up the problem areas! (its kinda intense though, you have to work hard to get the results) I’m on my second time through and Im hooked on it haha I think I’m gonna have to find another program to mix things up hahaha.

    @WhiteRoseRed: Oh my goodness, you took the words out of my mouth.  I totally look better in my dress than the model does!  ;D  It’s so funny you say that, because I’ll bet most people think the same thing.

    @cristinajanusz: The other posters are right, he won’t remember having said it, and you’ll look fabulous.  The first time I tried on my dress after ordering it, I too had put on some weight, AND it was unaltered, and it just looked terrible.  After the first round of alterations (and a bit of weight loss), it looks so gorgeous I want to LIVE IN IT.  So be patient, be good to yourself fitness- and nutrition-wise, and most importantly, wait to see what it looks like after being fully altered.  I’ll bet you fall in love with it all over again!

    Honesty Time! I love the Paloma Blanca. I much prefer it to the Maggie that you already have. I looked up prices on the PB and saw how expensive it is, but when I saw the dress it reminded me of Mori Lee Blu 4524.

    The Mori Lee dress is only about $450, so if you decided to change your dress, and loved the look of the PB, you could get the Mori Lee without too much hardship.

    I think you look gorgeous in the gown you already have 🙂 Your FI won’t remember what he said, and when he sees you coming down the aisle he’ll be blown away by you…the dress is there to enhance you which I think the maggie does. Good luck! 🙂

    I like your dress and I think it goes well with your theme too! We all have a little dress regret sometimes!. You have lots of time to shed a few lbs. Also try spanx or  something. You might feel less self-concious. With that said, I’m jealous. I’d rather have your hip measurement. Mine’s 35 and my waist is 29. Yell
