are you also in the picture you posted?

I hadn’t thought about it before but I’m bigger than all my BM’s too.  I don’t really care.  I’m 5’4″, about 160lbs and a size 10/12 depending (dresses I’m usually an 8 oddly enough) I’m happy being a curvy girl, although I would like my tummy to be a little flatter in my figureing hugging dream dress.

@Nferrari:  okay seriously – you look like you’re the same size in that picture.  I really don’t see a difference at all.  You look fantastic and have nothing to worry about 🙂

@Nferrari:  It sucks and I am in the same boat. Yes, your Fiance finds you beautiful, but it still sucks to compare yourself to others and feel like you don’t measure up. I’m going through it too, so I don’t know what advice to give you. Just want to tell you that I know your pain. Getting over it and just loving your body is advice that doesn’t work for me 😛

Also, I have an incredibly skinny and beautiful friend who eats chocolate bars for breakfast and follows it with twinkies. She wouldn’t know exercise if a weight hit her in the head. I try to eat right and exercise every single day…yet I am MUCH bigger than her. Life is not fair sometimes. Weight is very easy to gain and very hard to lose (at least that has been my experience).

Whose the one gonne be in the beautiful WHITE wedding gown with all eyes on her?




Plus, this day isn’t about competition, its about sharing your guys’ love for eachother with everyone else 🙂


Question: Did you ask your bridesmaid to try the dress on? Or did she just decide to try it on?

Stop, stop, stop. Now.

1. Everyone is there to see YOU. They will not be looking at the bridesmaids (I never do), and if anyone would ever be so awful as to sit there and compare you to the other girls…then I can confidently say being ugly like that will rot them from the inside out.

2. You are not big. I was your weight at 5’4″ back in the day. You are very tall and you look great.

3. There is no such thing as an “ugly/fat/not-good-enough” bride. All brides and gorgeous.
