- Wedding: September 2014 - Dallas, TX
Long story short, I was feeling really crappy about my dress after I tried on my actual dress and thought it wasn’t as flattering as the sample. This was confounded by the fact that my dress had to be reorded three times because there kept being something wrong with it (first too short, second had stains). After a crying meltdown to my FI that I was afraid I hated my dress and it wasn’t worth all this trouble, I posted on the Bee for advice. http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/feeling-depressed-about-my-dress/#axzz3064A9qRA
You guys gave me great hope that the dress still looked great and I was being hypercritical. My third dress came in and my mom and I went to see it and try it on yesterday. I got to try it on with my actual belt and veil and I’m happy to say I love it again! I don’t know if it’s just because this dress finally doesn’t have anything wrong with it, but I think it fits way better than the other two! Many of you suggested trying a wider belt, but I actually really love how my belt looks. I did take the advice of puttin the best lower on my waist and I think that made a huge difference. Anyways, thanks all for talking me off a ledge. I am really glad this is the dress I chose. Here is the picture of me from yesterday with my whole wedding look!
