Alright bees…the wedding is June 22, 2013 and this is the only thing that has been planned so far, I know, I am slacking.
My friends want me too keep looking, and my family really isnt a fan but I love this dress!
What do you all think? Get this dress or keep looking? (I really need to order one soon because I have been told with alterations, etc it will take about 5 months to get in…we will be cutting it close to the wedding!!)
Also I know I look really young in this picture, I promise I am 20 almost 21. I just had no makeup or hair done and my friend dragged me into a bridal shop last minute while we were out shopping and we stumbled upon the one! My hair and makeup will most likely be done like the picture Ive attached of me in the red dress…I wanted a natural, simplistic, every day look.

Me about a year ago…this is how I want my hair and makeup done. Really natural.

wow you look gorgeaous in the red dress!!!
I think that you should keep looking, that dress isnt very flattering and you have a great body shape.

It does nothing for your body. You have a cute figure. I’d keep looking. Hope u don’t mind my honesty.

You look so so beautiful! You have such a cute little figure! I think the dress is great on you, and will be even better once it’s actually altered to fit you. I think keep it.

I guess I’m going against the crowd…. I think the dress looks amazing on you!!! Not sure how I feel about that particular color but the dress is flattering on you IMO….. But you’ll know when you know!! From the look on your face and body language it appears you really like it!
You should add a poll! More people will chime in if u add a poll 🙂

I like the dress, but I think if you found one with a more subtle transition from body to skirt it would look better. I love the hair and makeup inspiration but I’d suggest doing at least something more with the hair, like loose curls all the way around or maybe pinning it up slightly or even just adding a hair clip.

thank you for the idea, I didn’t even think about adding a poll! There is one up now and you can vote on more than one option…

I tried this dress on and LOVED it from the moment I saw it on the hanger. Though I decided it wasn’t for me, I think it looks sensational on you and adore the color against your skin and hair..very flattering. It is clear that this dress looks absolutely beautiful on you and that you love it. For those who are unfamiliar, the dress has fabulous venice lace that transitions to a tulle skirt. It is a very flirty, fun and unique dress and I really liked the pearl color. Friends and family just want you to be happy with whatever decision you choose, so I say make the one that puts a smile on your face and butterflies in your belly. As far as hair and makeup goes, I do think you might want to add a little something. I’m not sure how it looked in person, but the photos are nearly implying that you are not wearing any makeup at all and your hair would look great with a bit of wave to it. For your wedding day, I might suggest a touch more makeup, maybe a bronze color palette, some glow to your skin and a bit of color to your lips. Best wishes! 🙂

Have you seen this dress? http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/any-tara-keely-2200-brides It’s very similar to yours. But honestly, you should wear what YOU love, not what your family loves. I think the dress is gorgeous and you look amazing in it! It’s your wedding! Wear what you want and enjoy your day!

@navywifenmoore: Anyone who thinks it doesn’t look good is crazy, I swear! Haha. I think it looks so fantastic on you. It doesn’t fit perfectly in the chest area, but that can obviously be fixed. Otherwise, I am such a fan. You look gorgeous! 🙂
