My mother and I fell in love with a Maggie dress, however we waited to long to purchase it and it was discountinued two weeks ago. So, I was back to square one. Last weekend we went shopping and I fell in love with a Martina dress that felt like it was made for my body (even more then the original Maggie dress!). I LOVE it. However, my mother isnt too hott about it. She said it doesnt show off my figure. I think its beautiful and fits along my vintage/old Hollywood theme. So, I bought it right then & there. I have to admit, Im having a little regret b/c I imagined my mother crying over the dress I picked.
Does anyone else have this issue? Help me get over this!!!
Here’s my dress:

Maybe it’s because I don’t have a dramatic family, but they pretty much got over the fact that they didn’t love certain parts of my dress by the time the wedding rolled around. In fact, when they saw it at the wedding itself complete with the venue/bouquet/etc., they were all like “Wow, it’s beautiful!” So I would just pick the dress you love as it is pretty and not so “out there” (like all black and shredded with twigs or paint) that she would be mortified. By the time the wedding rolls around, she will be so excited that her daughter is getting married that she won’t care that it’s not the dress of her dreams.

My mother and I don’t have the best relationship so needless to say she didn’t care for my dress. However, I think that was more in part to her insecurity than her actually taste and my dress.
If you love the dress and are happy on the big day your mom won’t be able to help but to fall in love with how you will look…dress and all.

Yes. My mom/one sister both went “really? That one?” but my friends and other sister convinced me that it was perfect. I’m really nervous about it now. I don’t want people to be thinking “really?” on my wedding day. I’m going to be reading the advice that people give you!

My mom thought that my dress was too big (poofy). She said I needed a smaller dress for my outdoor wedding. I tried some sheath dresses to please her but I didn’t feel like they were for me. I got my dream dress and she got over it.

I did Running of the Brides at Filene’s Basement. Neither my mom nor I were pleased with the selection, but I felt I should buy a dress anyway since I’d camped out all night. I would’ve been ok wearing the dress I bought, but my mom hated it more and more by the day, so she offered to buy me another dress. I’m so glad because I, we, really loved the dress I wore.

My mom doesn’t like my dress. However, her vision of my wedding and my vision of my wedding are so far apart, I’m kind of glad she doesn’t like it. I like it and I look good in it, so that’s all that matters!
