WildStone:  First of all, your dress is beautiful and you look stunning in it!!!

I can relate to you very well. When I was only 6 years old I was involved in an accident that left me with 3rd degree burns. More than 50% of my body is scared and they are extremely visible. My right arm, cheek, breast, thigh and leg are fully covered with scars and they are so visible. I have learnt to accept myself and celebrate the fact that I survived. A friend of mine who was in that accident with me died.

Coming to your concern, I really do not see your scars that much because they kinda matches your skin tone a bit and looking at your picture from far, they look more like cellulite than scars. So I think you will look and feel fine unless you think you might be a bit self concious about them.

For me (and this is not supposed to make you feel bad about your scars) I can’t wear sleeveless clothes at all because I am just not used to them and because of my scars I think. In that case I went with a 3 quater sleeves on my all lace top dress. I knew I would never feel conmfortable in sleeveless even if I did not have scars.

Rock your dress and scars with pride dear, you look marvelous!!!

Hey! I have very large gruesome looking scars on my sides, back and hips (up to my neck and all down my back) it was from some very extensive childhood surgeries that I had. I feel your pain on this. I know that they will pretty much be visible in any wedding dress, but honestly, I don’t really care. I’ve had mine since I was 13, and I’m pretty much over it- plus check us out, we’re all scarred and we still found the one! Woo! You look killer in that dress, and like it or not, these scars we have make us different. It shows that we have been through some SHIT, and we’re still ok! That’s pretty damn sexy if you ask me! If you do want to cover I guess you could do a long veil that kind of comes around, but I always feel like when I try to cover mine I sort of spend the whole time trying to make sure they are covered. I’d rather just have them out and visible, no reason to be ashamed at all 🙂

You look amazing!!! And so happy!  Please wear that dress with that smile- no one will notice anything but the happiness you are exuding!

PS- I’m going strapless despite some rosacea discoloring and acne scarring, so I understand your hesitance.  Having seen your photo, you don’t need to think about this again, I promise that!
