This week I had a hair and make-up trial with a so-called pro who didn’t listen and made me look awful. Needless to say, I’ve booked someone else. But she made me feel really ugly and down on myself and she also made some very lukewarm comments about my dress.
Now, I know any dress won’t be to everyone’s taste and I bet a lot of suppliers are faking it when they say a dress is gorgeous but that is their job. If your MUA or florist or whoever is underwhelmed by your dress, you don’t want to know, do you?
When I showed her pictures, she said: “Oh, that’s… nice. Very… simple.”
This is my dress: http://www.blessingsbridal.co.uk/item/tia-5312-rebecca
“Nice” and “simple” are not really the look I was going for. The rational side of me says I shouldn’t pay any attention to the opinion of a woman who left orange patches on my chin. But like many brides I have days where I worry about whether I picked the right dress and she has made me worry that this is what my guests will say. It’s… nice. Which basically means it’s boring.
I don’t want to seem like I’m fishing for compliments, I’m just worried that nobody is going to be wowed by my dress.

I adore your dress! She sounds very unprofessional. I’m so sorry that happened to you. Your dress is seriously beautiful, do you think she was jealous of you in some way and being catty?

That’s a gorgeous dress! Everyone has different ideas of what thier perfect dress would be. You and her just don’t have the same taste that’s all!! What’s most important is that YOU feel like a bride in that dress.

I love your dress. Simple isn’t boring – it’s elegant and classy.
I also have a very “simple” dress. I’m sure some folks are going to be “eh. meh. boring” but I don’t care.
I love the way I look and feel in it.
Do you love your dress?

Your dress is beautiful. Don’t let her comments get you down. It may not be all blinged out, but it really is gorgeous. “Simple” does not mean bad, as other posters have pointed out.
