So, I’m just needing a bit of reassurance that I chose the right dress. 3 out of my 4 bridesmaids have only seen the picture of me in it, and my sister who is 18 years old, didn’t really have any reaction. I’ve already had my first fitting, and I loved the way I felt in it, but I’m starting to second guess myself. I’m worried my FI won’t like the color of it, because it’s not white. Ugh, this is the worst feeling….
Here’s a photo for reference. My dress is the Maggie Sottero Embrace, ivory over light gold and I’m changing the neckline to a sweetheart, which is why it’s clamped.

@monh13: Girl, you look GREAT! That fit looks amazing on you and I can see it with the sweetheart neckline, it’s going to look perfect.
I didn’t get crazy reactions out of the girls that physically saw the dress with me (Mom, FMIL,MOH) but I loved it, and as soon as I said the words “I feel good in this dress” they all just fell for it too.
I LOVE your dress, don’t second guess yourself especially if you love it too. Your man will see you the day of and think you’re the most beautiful girl in the world, and he will love the dress too!

I like your dress a lot! Only you can say whether it is the right dress for you, because no one else cares enough lol. I struggled with that a lot until I realized I was the only one who cared that much about my dress, and I was looking for huge reactions that wouldn’t come. It looks great on you, it is a flattering color, and all your FI will see is a beautiful bride; he won’t be criticizing anythign about it. All the dress needs to do is make you feel like a bride, and it seems liek it does that, so stop stressing!

I think its gorgeous! I think changing it to the sweetheart neckline is a fabulous deicision. I personally love that its not white and has a gold base – so different!!

Looks amazing on you! Remember, your friends and family will have a way different reaction when you’re actually standing in front of them, as opposed to just a picture.

It looks great. Pictures never do things justice compared to real life, I’m sure they’ll all love it in person!

I think you look beautiful!!! And if you feel awesome in it, that’s all that matters. And girl, don’t worry. Your FI is going to love it! Like @Elky: said, I really don’t think guys differentiate all that much among white/ivory/champagne/etc. He’s just going to be thrilled to have you as his stunning bride!!!

You don’t need crazy reactions from the otherladies cause they aren’t wearing the dress. Besides, they may have envisioned something else, but that’s THEIR taste and not yours, so forget them.
You look stunning in the dress! I like it. You feel confident in it and its’ gonna show. Forget everyone else! Its all about you baby!
