Do you have any pictures of you in the dress?  And, depending on what the dress looks like, you could probably get the train removed/shortened.

@Gunner4786:  Yes post a pic. You are probably just stressing over nothing. Let’s see!

It would probably be very simple to have the train removed if that’s what’s bothering you. I plan on altering my dress after the wedding to change it into a formal gown (it’s silver so if I take off the train and do a few other things to it, it will not look like a wedding dress), and the seamstress said that shortening the train would be easy peasy. 

As for you feeling like it makes you look too large, have you tried spanx at all? You also have well over 2 months so you still have time to eat right, exercise and drop a few pounds. Plus once it’s altered to fit you correctly it will really change how you look in it. My bust looks AWFUL in my dress, the bustline doesn’t hit me at the right spot at all and is too large, but I know once it’s altered to fit me it is going to look gorgeous!

I had the same thoughts!  Then I got caught up with other wedding stuff and forgot about it, lol. It’s sorta late to get a new dress, unless you buy a sample or something you don’t have to order.  Talk to your seamstress.  She can make suggestions.  After talking to mine, I’m going to get Spanx, shorten the train and add a belt.

@Gunner4786:  It’s been a month; are you still feeling not 100% confident about your dress?

I definitely went through this phase and TBH, I have talked myself off the buy-another-dress ledge three times by remembering how much i freaking paid for The Dress and its alterations. We’re and outside event, too and I keep wondering if my tulle dream is out of place for a glitzy backyard bbq. But, oh wellsies. Here’s the dress I keep coming back to, ESPECIALLY since it’s on sale now:

 

and here’s The Dress:

@Gunner4786:  WOAH! That gown is amazeballs!! Have you decided how you’re going to do your hair? I love your shade of blonde, btw!

 

& also, you’re right about The Dress. Everytime I get to put it on I remember again why I chose it.

@Gunner4786:  I like #2 best but that’s because I won’t be the one combing it out and pulling out lost bobbypins while on my honeymoon, haha! It looks like such a fairytale hair style.  And you know what else, it might look even better on your hair since blonde seems to look better for updos. That was one of the things my hairdresser mentioned about all my inspriration photos was that because blonde has more depth of color than brunette/mine – the updo might not look quite the same. So, guess whose getting some caramel-ish highlights a week before le’day? This girl.

I’m about to get off topic; I’ll PM you!
