My friend sent me a picture she took of me in the dress recently and it just feels like a flop. I’m so sad. I have grown up dreaming about being a bride. And I’m so unhappy with my dress. Even after adding a belt. I don’t even feel like I know what to change to make it better. I don’t feel beautiful. I’m just so sad right now. So let down. I know all you bees think my dress is pretty from previous posts but I just can’t shake it. I just don’t know what to do. All I can do, I guess is suck it up and wear it and feel like I just look nice.

You look great! What don’t you like about it specifically?

I think it’s stunning! What do you not like? I don’t see flop anywhere!

What about it makes you sad? Because I think it’s a gorgeous dress and you look fabulous.

That’s the problem. I have no idea why I don’t like it. I just look at it and my heart drops in disappointment and I’m on the verge of crying. Is this what a wedding breakdown feels like?

I see a beautiful, elegant dress! But, I remember when I was preparing for my wedding and I got excited about my dress and then saw a pic… it looked so different from what I felt. Are you wearing makeup in the pic? Or jewelry? I think that makes a big difference in photos. In your head, you’ve got the whole look, but then you see the pic and everything else isn’t there, which makes you doubt the dress… maybe?

Can you change your veil to change to look? Or add straps?
Would either of those things help?
What exactly about it do you not like?

I absolutely love it but I guess that does not matter but what you feel. For what its worth, you look great.

I’m sorry you’re feeling floppy – you look really beautiful, I promise. Your dress is so pretty and elegant and timeless. Could it be that it could be a little more fitted?

@7monthbride: Do you know what you DO like? Maybe then you can pinpoint what details make you happy.

How has the rest of your life been going?
Any other huge things going on? Do you have general depression?
Are you dramatic about other things in your life (I’m being kind here!) Or is this view about your dress very out of the ordinary for you – attitude wise?
I will trade you gowns if you like!
