Chin up girl! It happened to me, except for one friend who liked it!  My mom loathed it (she was obsessed with another one), the other one was honest and didn’t like the style (she was biased against it), the other one was in love with another dress, and so forth.  I was torn to pieces because I felt that this one was the right choice and luckily my wonderful fiancee comforted me and told me I had good judgement and go with my guts.  I think when it gets altered a lot of people will see why its such a great fit.  But in the end its about you, who you are, and the only person whose opinion REALLY matters is your fiancee and I can almost guarantee that no matter what you walk in they’ll think you look amazing!

If you want to post a photo here, I’m sure that some of us can find some nice things to say about it. :)  

Nobody else is going to care as much about your dress as you will, so I would say that your opinion is more important than anyone else’s.

Can we see it? Sometimes a dress looksgreat on the bride but she initially gets negative feedback from friends and family just because it’s not exactly what they would have chosen or picked for her, but that doesn’t mean it’s not a great dress!

It’s hard for people to see the full impact of you wearing your wedding dress when it’s in a photo. However, when you are wearing it the day of, fully accessorized, and beaming people who see it in person will say you look amazing.

@HisNightOwl2014:  It’s a beautiful dress. I think the reason why they have been negative about it is because the pic was taken from the wrong angle.

Have they only seen a pic or have they seen it in real life also?

@geekchick: They are CRAZZZYYYY!! That dress gives you a perfect hourglass figure, it looks amazing on you! It sounds like you have some really critical friends and family, because that dress has just the right amount of sparkle, a mermaid can never be bulky, and it’s called lace not flower embroidery things, and it’s very bridal and pretty! And as far as the boobs go…hey, rock what you’ve got, haha! And your dress will be altered to fit your body. Sounds like they wouldn’t like anything unless they picked it themself!

Bulky? No.

Plain? No way.

Boobs look too big?  They are tasteful.  If your boobs are big, they will look big.  There is no tucking those babies in…trust me!

Edging on the bottom is beautiful!  Truly.  I LOVE this dress!

 

And it looks fabulous on you!  You, more than anyone else that has posted pictures of this style of dress ROCK it with your curves!

 

In the end, it doesn’t matter what I, or anyone else has to say about it.  YOU need to love it so much that noone else can change your mind.

 

But, if you ask me, stop looking!  You’ve found the one!

Oh my gosh!  I can’t believe no one likes that dress!  I tried it on in David’s Bridal, but the only size they had was so small that I couldn’t even get it on.  My mother and I both fell in love with it and had them call to try to find it in my size in another store, but the only stores they had it in were up north or on the other coast.  I was too nervous to order it without trying it on.  That dress is sooooo hard to find b/c it is so popular!  The way the side comes down is sooo flattering!  It looks beautiful on you – really shows off your figure! Google that dress and you’ll find amazing reviews and how people have a hard time finding it b/c it sells out so quickly!

These are my responses to the comments you received:

Bulky?  No way.  It fits like a glove and shows off your figure.

Plain?  Um, seriously.  If they thought that was plain, I can’t imagine what they must have wanted you to wear.  I’m a big believer in less is more.  You don’t want the dress to overshadow you – you want to stand out!

Boobs too big?  You have boobs.  That is a fact of life.  It doesn’t look over the top or slutty.  I assure you that your fiance won’t have a problem with it!

Flower embroidery?  We actually loved that part of the dress.  I think it gives it a higher-end dress feel b/c it makes it look more unique than the 90% of dresses that have a straight border.

Don’t let anyone spoil it for you!
