I use the word cute sometimes to mean a sweet and sassy mix.  That certainly describes the dress.  I doubt the person saying cute meant it in the “twee” sense.

I would also guess that they just overuse the word “cute” to mean pretty, nice, they like it.  The dress is not “cute” in any sort of “childish” way.  I like it a lot!

Girl, I would give my left (and maybe right) arm for that dress…. no matter what people called it. :o)  You are going to look amazing!  If it helps, saying someone looks ‘super cute!’ is a very high accolade among my group of friends. This is a term we even use for 4″ platform heels, which I would shudder to see an adolescent girl running around in.  I would think back to how they said it– was it enthusiastic or lack-luster?  If they were excited, I wouldn’t give it a second thought.

I think your dress is so pretty!! People just throw around the word “cute”–I’ve heard it applied to random things that were decidedly more-than-cute. I think it’s a usage thing: wrong word, wrong time. Don’t worry though, you’ll look gorgeous on your wedding day!

The dress is fab! Don’t let the word “cute” throw you off.

 

When I showed a friend my dress, she said “It’s very ‘you.'” I thought, WTH does that mean?!? I’m still wondering…… ???

I am one of those people who tend to overuse the word “cute” for things I like (I’m working on it). Your dress is gorgeous and I’m sure they meant “cute” as a compliment.

Oh I’ve seen that dress before and my word of choice would be “gorgeous”! For me “cute” would be a little strange for me too so I understand, but I wouldn’t let that bother you. Know that your dress is amazing and very special. Rock it girly!!

Well, I am not lucky enough to have found “my” dress just yet. Still on the hunt. 🙂

I think that dress is absolutely stunning! People do tend to overuse certain words like “cute” or “interesting”. I once had an English teacher that would not allow us to use the word “interesting” in our papers. She said find a nother adjective, there are plenty! Anyway, I am sure they didn’t mean anything bad by it. You also have to remember, they have not looked at thousands of wedding dresses like we have. They are not the bride deep in planning so they do not think about the adjectives they use. I’m sure you will get that comment from them on a lot of other things.

Do not second guess that dress! It is gorgeous!

I know you’ve had a lot of replies but let me ask you one question:

When you have that dress on, do you feel completely amazing?  Does your face beam?  Do you feel like a princess?  If you love your dress, who cares what people think or say.  I understand where you’re coming from but they aren’t wearing it, you are. 

I’m sure you’re going to look amazing!  The dress is gorgeous.

Gorgeous dress!

I think the word cute was only used as a compliment. I would use words like stunning, classy, elegant, timeless, beautiful, before I’d say cute..

🙂 congrats on a great dress! I love it!
