- Wedding: October 2012
I love my dress… I know I do… I am just feeling very iffy about it since I picked it up.
I posted a ton of pictures and basically stated all my insecurities in it last night (here:http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/picked-up-my-wedding-gown-today-pic-heavy ). But, since this is a different thread, with a totally different question, here’s the situation in a nutshell: I ordered my dress in November, since then, I’ve gained 15-20 lbs and have put on 1-2 dress sizes – awesome. :/ I WILL lose the weight again, but I’m unsure if I am not loving the dress because of the weight gain, or because I think it needs the train that I originally tried it on with, and swore I didn’t want.
What do you ladies think? Train or no train, or does it make much of a difference?
I am getting married outside, on a dock on the beach, and I would definitely want the dress bustled for the reception if I did get the train. I originally didn’t want a train because I didn’t want a crazy heavy dress, AND I didn’t want to have to pay for fancy alterations and bustling. Now I am feeling like my dress is maybe too plain and perhaps the train would glam it up? (I swear I didn’t used to be this indecisive… ever sine I got engaged I’ve been uncapable of making a decision on my own, lol!!)
Sooo, with that being said, what do you think? I plan to keep SOME version of this dress because I do love it, and I was SOOOO in love with it in November. Just can’t decide if I’m not loving it bc I’m feeling like a sausage (lol) or if it’s bc it does need the train…?
I’m not even sure I *CAN* exchange, but if I can, I’d love opinions. I might also be freaking out for no reason… I see girls from “Say Yes to the Dress: do that a lot… lol, think they hate their dress and then realize they love it. 😉
here’s two links with good pics of the back of the dress WITH the train:
and here’s me in the dress that I currently own WITHOUT the train (try and ignore my awesome backfat… it will be gone soon darnit!:)):
