Okay…I’m going to say this in the nicest way possible…You are crazy!!  🙂

First of all, that dress is absolutely beautiful.  And second of all, you looked great in the before AND after pics!  I can see a difference, but like I said…you looked awesome in it before you even lost ten pounds!

I’m going to have to second Tulip61110 , you look absolutely STUNNING in both your before and after pics. Your hips do not look huge at all! You look beautiful & sexy! It’s such a great dress on you and really shows off your incredible figure! I hope you wear the dress with confidence at your wedding b/c you look GREAT!

I don’t think you look fat at all!  You look great in both pictures.  I wish I had any hips at all.  Curvy doesn’t mean fat.

First of all, you were at RK’s huh?  I know it well! 

Secondly, and I swear on everything that I’m not just saying this- you look amazing in that dress!  I am sooooo serious!  I love it on you.  And you look like you’re the perfect figure 8, which is who that dress is meant for.  I promise you, its a beautiful dress on you! 

You’re probably just dealing with the inevitable nerves, which manifests in silly ways.  You’ll be a knock out!

I agree with Tulip. You are crazy! I think you have a perfect hourglass shape. Your hips don’t look big at all. And your waist is tiny. What exactly are you seeing in the pictures that you don’t like?

You definitely look more toned! I REALLY notice it in your back and shoulders area. And, your waist definitely looks nipped in quite a bit =]

You look great! I love that dress, it’s very romantic and pretty

You’re definitely being WAAAAAAAY critical of yourself for no reason. You look great, the dress is really flattering, and you’ve got a great figure!

I understand where you’re coming from, though. Sometimes I look at pictures of myself and I hate them and other people tell me I’m crazy and that they don’t see what I see. It’s easy to overanalyze and be hyper-critical of ourselves, especially when it comes to how we look in our wedding dress, but seriously you look great so don’t worry about it.

I agree with Tulip…I do see a difference,  but you looked fabulous from the beginning.

I think you looked great before and great after! Look at that hourglass, do you know how many girls would kill for that, you’ve got such a cute little waist you don’t have hips. I honestly love that on women. You don’t look like you needed to loose any weight before at all but congrats on doing so! I understand on what you mean by feeling that way, I think we all go through it especially right before such a big day but everything looks smooth and clean, I don’t see any trouble spots you just look like a sexy stunning bride!

I think you definately look smaller in the waist, but I also think you look amazing in that gown.  I think it suits your body really well.

And don’t worry, you aren’t the only one that doesn’t like they way she looks in photos.. I’m sure you could get a dozen girls here to say they have the same reaction.

You look beautiful!

I think you can see a bit of a difference in the back photos. Not that you didn’t look fine before, but in the second picture of the back, it looks like the dress flows more off your hips and butt than being more form-fitting. I don’t think you look hippy, but nicely proportional with an hourglass shape.

Since it sounds like you’re more worried about how it’s coming across in pictures, maybe you can talk to your photographers and they can recommend poses or be more aware of that when they’re choosing angles.

Hey!
So I think the dress is beautiful and you look beautiful in it!
You have curves in all the right places for it.

And I can def tell you lost weight, your waistline looks tinier.

Overall I think it’s a very flattering gown on you and you look beautiful!!

And you are not fat!!!

Seriously, just go back on my posts I’m not one of those that jump into every single dress thread to tell a bride she looks great just to be nice. When I say it I mean it.

The dress really looks great on you and I can tell in the after pix that you look a bit slimmer! Good Job, it is really pretty
