What is it about the feel of the dress you don’t like?

Too conservative?

Less fun?

I think if you can find the words of what you are looking for it might be easier to tell her what you are going for? And hopefully your styles will come together in the form of a BMs dress!

I am sorry, but I guess I am the wrong person to ask. You didn’t state what your style of wedding is, but I prefer the dress she picked out over the one you gave her for inspiration. To me it is similar in style. It is jut that the neckline is completely different. The one that she picked out would be more flattering on a lot of different figure types. And if she isn’t stick thin, she probably wouldn’t look good in the one you gave her to look at.

i would try to find other dresses that has the elements you both like (and price point) and send those as possible options to her.  it could go something like… “thats cute, but how about this one?”

I kind of think the dress isn’t a totally different feel from the inspiration photo, in that it’s got a flowy but classic look to it.  What exactly do you not like about it?

When it comes down to it, communication is always the best key.  I’d tell her that you like that dress and that maybe it would be a good rehearsal dinner dress, but it’s not necessarily what you envisioned for the wedding.  And then I would look up other dresses within her price range that fits your vision while keeping her style and body shape, etc. in mind.  I think showing her a dress she could feasibly afford and that fits your idea is key.

Mine is kinda the same theme as yours. What about asking her to look for more flowey fabrics like organza. Ask her to stay away from cotton. I think that if the dress she picked out was in a more flowey fabric, it might work, so I think she is going in the right direction. You just need to let her know that you are going for a softer more feminine look. Let her know that you are looking for girly girl styles, and that might help her.
