I live in an area where high fashion wedding dresses just haven’t made it into the bridal boutiques. I tend to prefer minimalistic designs or art deco inspired, I feel as though I compromised with my dress because it was the one which I could find which looked best on me. Unfortunately, I didn’t have a ton of time to get a dress, as we’re getting married rather quickly (seven months until the wedding!) or else I would have traveled to find somehting. The dress just isn’t particularly my style. I don’t know, I just need some encouragement that I made a good choice. The Maggie Soterro Britannia in ombre is lovely, I love how it goes from ivory to gold, but I was hoping for something either more a modern slip dress or at least something more unique.
It feels wrong to complain about this, I feel as though I don’t have a right to be uneasy about my choice. After all, I picked it out. Meh. I have guilt.

I think you look beautiful. The dress flatters your frame and the lace is lovely! The lace peaking up from the bust onto your chest is also very elegant. I think once you personalize it with your own accessories (jewelry, and a veil (if you choose)) you’ll find that you can create a unique look. I think this was a beautiful choice 🙂

OMG, you are so pretty! The dress is really lovely and classic. Love the low back and the covered buttons!

I tried this dress and loved it, so I may be biased. But I think it looks awesome on you!

We are dress twins, so I may be biased… but I think it looks fabulous on you!! I live in a small area as well and spending less on a dress that isn’t couture means we have more $$ for other things, like a honeymoon 🙂

If it isn’t your style and you don’t like it, you may always feel that.
That being said, I think you look absolutely gorgeous and would love to wear that exact dress in my own wedding. That’s exactly the vision I want for myself.

it’s not really modern, so if that’s what you’re going for, it misses the mark.
Do you not have amazon, zappos, bluefly or shopbop? There’s a lot of wedding dresses available online from Nicole Miller, Erin Fetherston, Bagley Mishka, Katie May, etc. which are also returnable through these outlets. Some with free shipping / free returns.
I don’t like the bridal boutique experience, so I went through the internet, ordered 14 dresses and kept one and returned the rest. It worked out way better because I had free shipping and returns through Amazon Prime, so I was able to order multiple sizes and kept the one that fit the best.
