I love it! You have time to lose the weight, but I don’t think you need to. Your hair is so pretty.

You look so happy!

Just curious, are you wearing a veil? If so, what length?

The dress is just okay.. In My Humble Opinion. I feel like the dress as is isn’t particularly flattering you as is.

Some ideas about the dress:

How many layers of crinoline are under the dress? Based on the pictures the skirt makes it look like you bigger than you are (based on when you put your hands on your hips). I would see about removing one layer of fluff if there are layers so it lays straighter but would be a more elongated A line.

Have you tried adding a colored sash under the busntline? I actually like the bow but if you’re removing it a sash could add a little sparkle or color.

Are you going to wear your hair up? Your hair is stunning down, and pearls would be very nice in addition to the dress.

And congrats on your dress getting in, I’m still waiting on a phone call for mine…

I personally think the dress is a little overwhelming on you.  It may be less so if you wear your hair up.

I really love this dress and I think it looks great on you. 

My suggestion would be to either ditch the bow and go with a super sparkly sash, or go with a veil to make yourself feel more ‘bridal’ and don’t put the dress on again until you’re at your ‘happy’ weight. Once you do that I’m sure that you’ll fall in love with it all over again because it really is gorgeous.

hmmm…you look gorgeous. However, there are a few pictures that the dress looks like it is ovewhelming (2,3 and second to last) you but some photos it looks good. I am not sure if they are just bad angles or what. 

Honestly, I never really liked this dress because i feel it overwhelms most people in it. You have a great figure but I feel this dress is making you look a little larger than you are. You def dont look large in it but it is hidding your waist and pushing up your breasts which can be unflattering. 

I think that the bow is in a weird place, I have always thought that with this dress. I do like the bow just not where it is. I would move it down an inch or so. I think that would help excentuate your waist as well. You have a gorgeous face and hair and it looks like you have a great curvy figure under all that dress. I think you should not hide your body this much. I am not a fan of tight dresses at all but you are just drowning in this dress. Changing where it hits you at the waist would make a huge difference πŸ˜€

Good luck!

I think you would look amazing in this dress:


This one is similar to your current dress but not as overwhelming:

I don’t think the dress overwhelms you at all.
