So, before I went dress shopping for the first time a few months ago, I found a picture of a Martina Liana dress (style 346) that I loved. It was the first dress I tried on, and I did really like it, but I decided to keep looking. I went to another bridal shop and came to another dress I really liked…only to realize it was the same exact dress. Even though this was only a week into my search and the 2nd dress shop I had been to, I figured it was “meant to be” and just ordered it. Also, they just happened to be having a Martina Liana trunk show at the time and were offering me 15% off, so I felt like I HAD to do it.
Anyhow, 3 months later, the dress hasn’t come in yet and I’m starting to regret my decision. The only pictures I have of me in the dress (below), I’m really not loving (ignore the weird yellowness in the second picture – the first dress place I went to had really bad lighting). It could just be because obviously it’s still pinned and about 8 inches too long on me (I’m very short), but I’m starting to have major dress regret.
Any other Martina Liana 346 brides out there with pictures? Or any other girls who started to really regret their dress decision while waiting the LONG, LONG 4-8 months to get it back, but are now in love with it after seeing it again (and making alterations)?

I love your dress–it looks beautiful on you and is a very flattering shape! I think it’s a normal thing to go through, though. I second guessed my dress endlessly until I had my first fitting. I think your dress is gorgeous and the detailing is really pretty!

I don’t have any advice to offer but you look beautiful in the dress, it really suits your shape and I love the detailing.

I think it looks great! Once it comes in I’m sure you won’t have any dress regret 🙂 We all start to worry when we haven’t put it on in awhile.

You look AMAZING! That dress is so pretty but not too overwhelming it is perfect!

I think it’s gorgeous. Do not change it. And yes, I think it was meant to be since you basically tried on the dress in an unplanned way.

I think it is absolutely gorgeous!
Maybe look at some of the before and afters. Once fit to you and professional photographer takes the pictures it will be stunning.

Thanks, guys! 🙂 Definitely makes me feel a bit better about the dress.
I think I’ll go ahead and stop looking at these pictures and just wait for the dress to come in before I drive myself crazy.

I think it’s a really pretty dress. I think when you get it back and try it on again you’ll fall back in love with it 🙂

Your dress is STUNNING, especially with the sash. It’s so feminine and pretty. You look fantastic. It really photographs beautifully.

Oh my goodness, I can’t imagine what you could be regretting about this dress! You look absolutely stunning in it! It really is a completely gorgeous dress and I love it. The lace is so classy, and the details at the bottom are beautiful, and the sweetheart neckline.. Oh its all just perfect. I’m actually running out of adjectives to describe how much I like it.. haha Really though, it looks perfect on you!!
