@wlphilli:  I love it. I think it’s really soft but special, and most of all I love how happy you look. That’s your dress.

It’s such a subtle blush, and it really looks lovely with your skintone.

I have developed a theory over the years when trying to make a choice of chosing something over others: if you find yourself using a dress/university/car/etc as a benchmark to compare every other choice to, then you should just chose the benchmark.

@wlphilli:  It is a beautiful dress! If you keep going back to it after trying on so many other dresses, there must be something special about it. My dress doesn’t look anything like any of my Pinterest dresses either, for the same reason you had, they just didn’t work. My dress is a Great Gatsby champagne, one-sleeved dress, not traditional at all, and I don’t care one bit!

@wlphilli:  I think you should wear what you love, and it seems like you love it.  Go for it!

It’s not too out there at all!  It’s a gorgeous dress, and looks stunning on you!  The color is perfect, and I love the asymmetrical rouching.  The texture on the skirt is really nice because it’s not too over the top like some of the ruffle bottoms can be.  I think it’s a really unique dress but it still has some lovely traditional elements (the belt and the sweetheart neckline) to keep it from being too crazy.  Great pick!

@wlphilli:  I think that the dress looks beautiful on you.  I agree that the colour is very complementary to your skin tone and it is a very subtle blush (in this photo anyways).  I also really like the shape and the ruching, however, I personally don’t love textured, flowery part on the bottom.  But hey, that’s just me! If you love it, go for it!

@wlphilli:  It’s lovely and not too “out there” at all. If it’s the one that makes you feel beautiful, DO IT. I didn’t end up with a dress that I thought I would choose either. I thought I wanted an ivory lace strapless gown, but ended up with a blush/champagne tulle gown with sleeves.

And my recommendation is to stop asking for opinions from family once you’ve made your decision. You’re the only one who has to wear it 🙂

It’s a subtle blush and I like it!!! I don’t think it’s out there.

@wlphilli:  It looks amazing on you! When I opened this thread I thought I was going to see some rainbow monstrosity, but it is gorgeous! Absolutely gorgeous!

I like it, but I don’t see it as a “wedding dress” in the traditional sense… I would probably agree with your mom and grandma.  Maybe you should consider two dresses? This one being your reception dress and get another more traditional one for your ceremony?

@wlphilli:  I think it’s beautiful! And since you really love it, you should get it!

Maybe it’s just the picture, but I can barely tell that it’s blush, so it’s not like a hot pink gown or something! I think it looks beautiful, and I also think it will look great at your venue. It’s not too over the top, and the bottom ruffle is almost lacey looking.
