hey everyone! I just bought my dress but was hoping for a few opinions. I made the mistake of looking at it online and it looks terrible on the model…hoping it looks different on me? It is the Ulla Maija Emmanuel gown. Let me know what you think please!

Number 1: You look lovely, regal, simple, elegant, and magical in that dress.
Number 2: OMG I did the same thing! I found my dress, bought it, loved it. Went home, looked it up online and… hated it on the model. It was different, kinda trampy and awful. HATED it. It got worse when I looked for real brides in the dress. The results were opposite – I still hated it, but now because it was frumpy and saggy and weird. I was in total distress!
Untill I finally, by total happenstance, found pictures of TWO different brides both looking simply lovely in the dress. Just like I’d remembered feeling at the store. Turns out, you pretty much have to be petite but not super skinny to make this dress work, and on the brides who were built the same, it look great. On the bride who was thinner? Saggy and sad. On the model who was skinner AND taller? Totally different dress.
I’ve since visted the dress twice for reassurance and pictures, which has helped. But rest assured, you look ethereal and bridal and lovely!

I dislike my dress on the model too. Mine even looked better on a dressform than the model. I love it on me, and I would just look at the pictures of me in it whenever I was concerned.
You look great in that dress. I love the hem detail.

Ooh la la! That looks fabulous. I always feel like dresses with that much body swallow models, but on you it looks great! You’re going to look so so pretty on your wedding day!

I love your dress….I think it looks really nice on you. What are your concerns with it? I know how you feel….I actually purchased a dress and loved it on other girls and on me but I didnt feel that special in it so I purchased a different dress and I dont really like it on the model but felt so wonderful in it. You need to go with what makes you feel great…you will be wearing the dress not the dress wearing you.
