You look gorgeous in that dress, but I can totally relate!  I never had that emotional “this is the dress” moment either, and I too majorly freaked after I ordered my full tulle ballgown with blush and pewter embroidery!  I went in knowing I didn’t want a mermaid and I didn’t want a ballgown.  I liked dresses that were slightly fitted, slightly flowy – modified a-lines, sheaths, and fit n flares, and wanted a simple satin skirt (not tulle and embroidery).  The difficult part was I honestly don’t think one style looked better on me than the others – it just depended if I wanted to feel more sexy, elegant, romantic, etc.  I ended up with a romantic ballgown and worried I should have gone with something that showed off some curves instead.  My dress just came in and I’m picking it up this weekend, so hopefully when I try it on again I’ll fall in love with it, and so will you when yours comes in!

It is so beautiful on you! I’ve also ordered a plain gown and keep stressing over it “because it’s plain and look at everyone with their stylish/pretty decorations!!” 

I looked at all the pictures of me in different dresses and still felt most bridal in the one I got, but not having it physically around to try on still makes me second guess myself haha. 

It’s coming in next month so I can’t wait 😀

You look spectacular and it isn’t even altered for your gorgeous figure! You are going to look stunning.


I agree with the other bees. I didn’t have a this is the dress moment either. So much so I ordered mine online so didn’t even put it on.

Dress twins! I ordered mine in Oct. and had dress regret all the way until in came in. When I went to pick it up I fell in love all over again! I also had the train custom lengthened 3 extra feet so upon picking it up I was blown away. 

You look lovely, its a spectacular dress!

I have a lot of experience with this exact dress at the bridal shop I work at. It looks great in a size 2-6, so if your sample was too big you will love it when it arrives in your size. Don’t worry about it not looking good. 

If you really want a slim fit dress you can get something for later in the evening!
