I think your dress is gorgeous and you look teeny-tiny.  However, if it bugs you could you maybe get a very talented seamstress to strategically remove some of the offending flowers around the waist?  Also, if you wanted to add a sash, that could emphasize your waist even more if that’s really important to you.  You look totally lovely in it as it is, though.

I think it looks BEAUTIFUL, but I can see what you mean about it making you look bigger than you are. You don’t look big by any means, but dresses like that always emphasize the hip area, which can be unflattering on anyone.

I think it looks absolutely beautiful on you, and you don’t look bad at all – but I understand how we can be our own worst critic and see the things that other people would never notice. If you wore the dress, I can promise that all of your guests would think you look stunning, and no one would think you look “big” at all.

BUT, if you’re uncomfortable in the dress and think it makes you look big, I think you should get a different one. I’m petite as well, and I know that when I’m wearing something that I think makes me look bigger, I’m very self conscious and not comfortable with myself…and I think on your wedding day, feeling beautiful is the most important thing!!!

I think the dress is BEAUTIFUL and you look beautiful in it! I think it is actually very flattering and I think you look really sexy. Honestly though, I am a firm believer that people can say everything you want to hear but if you don’t believe it you are going to be unhappy. If you are really having second thoughts about the dress and have the money to spend, I would look around. You might have a hard time getting a dress in time for your wedding if you need alterations, but if it will make you happy then it’s worth a shot. You don’t want to say it’s ok, and then right before the wedding make yourself upset because you wish you changed it. Maybe once you try on some other dresses you will end up loving your dress more.

Wow, that dress is absolutely gorgeous, and you look really sexy in it. I say keep it. I understand what you say about your waist, it doesn’t look tiny in the photo, however, you still show off a great body. I think this is an effect of the fabric, that it’s so heavy and thick. Perhaps you are right and a corset dress would show off your tiny waist more. But seriously you look very very good in it, and the dress is absolutely breathtaking, my jaw dropped.

OMG, you look AMAZING in the dress.  I think we are our own worst enemies.  With that being said, if you aren’t happy with the way you look (amazing…have to say it again), then maybe you should have a plan b dress.  But, you really don’t need one because you rock that dress!

I think you look great! I see what you are saying that there does not appear to be huge difference from the waistline to the hips, but I think that is the nature of the trumpet or mermaid styles – they are tightest on the bust and over the hips and upper thighs.  I think that style of dress just does not emphasize a tiny waist.  Honestly, I think you look great and you shouldn’t be so self conscious, especially if you’re a size 2! Nothing can make a size 2 look big!  Laughing

Wow. Okay seriously. You look like a frigging model. You should be the poster for this dress maker. Like a previous poster said, we all see our own flaws and zone in on them, but really truly, you are stunningly gorgeous! The dress is beautiful, makes you look like a perfect hour glass!

That being said, if you don’t love love love it and think you can find better, there’s no reason why you can’t go try on others! It doesn’t cost to look right? And like you said, you don’t want to look back on your photos of the day and hate that dress in every photo. Don’t write it off, but I think it doesn’t hurt to try to find the one that makes your heart go pitter pat either πŸ™‚

I don’t see much difference in your waist between these dresses and the first one. I think you look hotter in the first one. My vote is keep the dress you already have, it is stunning and so are you.

I really dont see the difference between your dress and the “rejects”. I really wouldn’t worry about it. Your dress is WAY sexier and more flattering that those 3.
