@melisande:  I wouldn’t worry about it. Maybe you just need more distance from the pics, but I’m sure you were gorgeous. Remember back to the day you first said “yes” to the dress… The day you said “I do” to your partner… how did you feel in it then? I feel like that’s what matters, not what you think you see in the pics now. You’re probably applying your own critical mental filter when you look at the photos anyway.

Does everything need to be flattering? Can’t you just wear a dress you love?

Pro pics and guest pics can look vastly different! Besides, I’m sure lots of guests commented on how beautiful you were on your wedding day. Do post pics!

I think it’s natural to feel this way…guest pics are almost always bizarre/unflattering because we’re constantly in motion at weddings — standing, talking, hugging, dancing, laughing. None of us look naturally photogenic doing those things — that’s what your photographer is for Wink

I think your dress is gorgeous — it’s classic and elegant and it’s not the run of the mill cupcake gown. I’m sure your husband thought you looked amazing walking down the aisle toward him and that’s all that really matters.
