Ive been dealing with some negative feelings lately due to people saying things about my wedding look. Im honestly shocked that people have been saying these things. In general, I hear good things about peoples weddings. I rarely ever hear a negative comment about someones wedding look. Then again, mine was different than most girls I know.
I had a very traditional look. My hair was up, I didnt have heavy make up, I did not tan, my dress had sleeves, etc.
Ive had comments made to my face and behind my back about how my wedding look was “average, boring, nothing special, ugly dress, etc”
I know I should not internalize these feelings but its such a let down to have people say these things. I wish they wouldnt say a word if they arent going to say something nice. I have very modern taste, but when it came to being a bride, I always always always imagined myself as classic and traditional. My mother chose my wedding dress but I loved it nonetheless. She did not have a wedding of her own and I felt like I was giving her a second chance by valueing her opinion in everything, including my dress.
anyone else experinece this type of negativitiy about their wedding look, any advice on how to deal with it? 🙁

Why do people do that is beyond my comprehension. I think post your picture and let us BEES decide how pretty you looked!

Show a picture! I want to see. I bet you were beautiful.
If you had the day you wanted to have, you had the wedding of your dreams and thats all that matters.

I saw your post wedding shoot pictures and let me just say, I want your hair. You looked beautiful. As long as you and your now husband! loved it, that’s all that matters.

Jealousy… maybe youre wedding was better than theirs and they just dont wanna say it
That’s how I would put it in my head and be proud of my wedding!

I have never seen a bride look boring or average. People can be mean and thoughtless but I bet you looked stunning. And I bet your husband thinks so too 🙂

Wow, that’s awfully rude of people to say!
Personally, I think you looked beautiful (just stalked your history & found your pictures). Your look was very “Audry Hepburn”…timeless!

Really? Who exactly was saying these things? I’m sure they aren’t people you consider friends.

Ok, so I just went and looked at your post wedding shoot and you looked AMAZING!
I don’t know why people were so mean to you at your wedding, but from the photos I’ve seen I’d say it’s out of jealousy.
I really don’t understand why people think it’s ok to say things like that.

Okay, I just went and looked at your photos. You’re gorgeous! I don’t think your dress is boring at all. It has lovely embroidery. You’re hair looks great as well. I’m not sure what was average or boring about your look. I mean, there’re always going to be people with similar wedding looks, no matter what. Just ignore the meanies with these negative comments and focus on how you felt (happy and beautiful!).

Sometimes cats are mean because they’re jealous.
(Get what I mean?)
I bet you were a timeless, classic, elegant bride. I know it’s easier said than done but please try not to let them bother you.
Edited to Add: I just saw your pictures and you are, in fact, timeless, classic, and elegant. You look amazing. Clearly they are jealous that you were able to pull off that look. And make it look effortless.
