Hi girls !!
I would like to know if im not the only one in this situation, i already chose my wedding dress… my grandma helped me but it was the first one i tried (maybe that was wrong, choosing the first one) but i really felt so happy when i was wearing it i felt beautiful… but my 3 sisters said that it was just ok, my little sister said that she wouldnt wear it… i feel sad because it was a magic moment and now im confused, i dont know if i look good on it, i went again to try it and i didnt feel happy… now im looking at wedding dress websites but i know i should not… i dont know what to do… my dress is cristina wu 18960.
Other thing that im sad about, is that neither my mother, my future mother in law, my sisters, my “bridesmaid” have helped me at anything, they just act like they dont care… i have done everything, my sisters didnt even know my wedding date, they fought about the bridesmaid dresses cuz they didnt like it (they are going to choose the color and shpae, i only asked for specific fabric and i told i want it to be long) … i begged my mom to help me choose the wedding invitations with my fiancé but she said no, she hasnt gone with my at anything… i see some friends that have received a lot of support in their wedding plans and i see i have no one but my fiancé… its only us !!
Thanks for reading me ! =D

Hold up. I haven’t even read your post yet, but according to your title, NO ONE likes your dress.
You like it, don’t you?
If so, then someone does like it, and last time I checked, your opinion beats everyone else’s, just saying………..

Okay, I saw the dress. what kind of wedding are you having?
If you don’t like the dress anymore, then that’s a problem. You need to feel beautiful in your dress.
As far as no one else helping you, I’m sorry for that, but I will tell you, this message board will give you more cyber support than you can every imagine. I’ll bet there might even be a Bee in your area planning a wedding. Maybe you can go shop and do things together.
I’d go look up my state on the board here, if I were you, and put out a topic about hooking up with a local bride for support. I’ll bet you’ll find one, and you might make a new friend. In fact, I bet you will.
When people don’t show interest or they argue, just go look at a picture of your FI and remember what this is really about. Then make the best choices regardless of what someone else has to say.

Sorry, I saw the wrong thing.

We are on the same boat as far as support. But it’s ok, we know that it is all going to be our visions 🙂
Now for the dress, I have not seen it but I’m sure it is beautiful because YOU loved it.

That is a beautiful wedding dress.
It made you feel great when you wore it? Then forget about others opinions.

@skarlita_19: Oh, okay. I guess I pulled up the wrong thing. Good, cause that dress was ugly and I didn’t want to say that! LOL
But this other dress….Now that’s GORGEOUS!!!!
What’s wrong with this dress? I don’t get it.

I think that dress is beautiful, and am considering something in the same shape, but with a more ruffled skirt. 🙂 A lot of people have dress regret, but come the final fitting when everything fits you just right, most people fall right back into love with the dress. (There is a whole thread about it).
As for no one helping you, you have your FI right? My FI is overseas for the next 6 months and my family has been a little pre-occupied with helping my sister plan her wedding which is only one month before mine (although I am going to talk to them, and hopefully they’ll start helping me out more too :D). It does suck doing a lot of this alone, but just remember, at the end of the day you’re going to be married to the guy you love and all the little details won’t really matter in the big picture.

Is it possible you still love the dress and you’re letting their opinions cloud your judgement? Do you think not having your mother or sisters with you has made you change your mind about wedding things in general?

On the dress, most importantly you must love it and feel at ease it. The reason why there are so many different wedding dress designs out there is because not everyone will like the same style. I guess your sisters have very different style from you.
When you need a sounding board to help you to make decisions with regards to your wedding planning, you know you can always turn to the weddingbee. I did, I received and I return the favor by contributing to the boards. Sometimes, our friends or family members are either not as interested or don’t really know how to contribute into our wedding planning but the bees here will be always happy to help! You’re never alone!

OMGosh, GORGEOUS Dress !!
Ya sometimes family can be a royal pain in the butt… and Weddings often bring out the worst in some folks. Sadly. So I get where you are coming from (( HUGS ))
I see you are pretty new here to WBee… so I suggest you start hanging out here more, you’ll find a lot of support from other Brides-2-B and lots of interesting info and ideas as well. A great place to plan a Wedding IMO

It’s a gorgeous dress! And you felt beautiful, you felt happy, you love the dress. That’s more important than anything or anyone else. Do you have a photo of you in the dress?
I know how you feel about being alone. My mom passed away about 4 years back and my family is a 12 hour flight away from me. I moved countries to be with my fiance and the past year, the entire wedding planning has been done by the both of us.
I mean, his mom did offer to help and even told us that if we needed anything, to just ask… But the last couple of times we did ask for an opinion on something or some help, I just felt like my idea got thrown out the idea and she instead suggested something totally different. Like eg, our colour themes were brown/turquoise. We DIYed our cards and asked her opinion for something and she told us to change the cards to RED!
But on the upside, this has been brought and the fiance even closer together and at this point, we’re in the frame of mind, this wedding is about US and we don’t care what everyone else thinks.
So rock that dress, and share away here! 🙂 You’ll definitely get more than plenty e-support
