- Wedding: December 2012
can you afford to go buy one off the rack or used and just sell this one when you have time? My husband hates poofy wedding gowns, I got an A Line and then put a super full crinoline under it, it was really big, I didn’t care what anyone thought I loved it and you know what, he thought it was A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.! and so will yours!
what about something like the photo i posted? Would he really hate something like that?
when you say you showed him, was it on over that dress? I ask because my Fiance has no imagination as far as putting things together. I have to show him actual thing so he can see it. when I talk about a sash I mean like a 2″ ribbon nothing big a nd goudy.
@mrsWtobe: I guess that’s where I went wrong. I tried to buy a dress w/o all the rhinestones, lace, beading, etc because that’s what he SAID he likes. But I ended up with a blah dress that I don’t like and he doesn’t like.
Does anyone have any recommendations for a sash and jewelry to dress it up? I should probably just buy a sash and not worry about what he thinks any more. I just can’t find a place with one I like. My dress is ivory btw.
And I need some jewelry ideas!
I don’t have much of an option but to wear this one, so any ideas are appreciated!
search your gown right here on the hive, another bride posted pics of her with it with a sash, will give you idea of how it looks. Also see someone other than a model with it on.
Found a great site that sells discount has beautiful jewelry and sashes etc…
@mhackney21: In all honesty stop asking his opinion, we will love whatever you end up in on the day, he sounds like my Fiance who can not picture things unless he physically sees them, like if he sees a bookcase in the shop, he cant picture what it will look like in the house and so just says he doesnt like them until its in the house (infuriating). He cant see what it will look like on you in his head and so he is just thinking “Oh I dont think that stuff is very nice” without SEEING it.
He is making it very difficult for you – ask him if he wants you to wear nothing down the aisle, because thats where he is heading lol.
@mrstobeeisme: I just showed him pics of them online and he thinks they always look out of place on a dress that is layered. The straight A line ones he would agree that it would look okay but not on my dress.
But where can I go look at some in person?? I can’t seem to find any online.
most bridal stores have them in stock
@mhackney21: Wow, I think you look stunning. Seriously. But you must feel beautiful and comfortable in the dress. I don’t think your fiance will care what you’re wearing once he sees you walk down the aisle to become his wife. Heck, you could wear a paper bag and still look amazing to him, I’m sure! 😉 But it’s your choice ultimately. I’m sorry you’re going through this!…
Hmmm. You can always add a beautiful rhinestone brooch or two to your dress. Maybe you can add some really sexy and alluring, off the shoulder sleeves? I am conscious of how my arms look in any wedding dress, so just thought I’d help out and give a suggestion. Here a photo that MIGHT help (but yeah, I know, it will cost you):
There’s some drapey ones.
this is like $30 on that site
tons of other styles too,, just to show on a layered dress 🙂
First off, I think you look beautiful!
From looking at it, if it were me, I’d add a crinoline or a hoop! I swear if you poof out the bottom, it will look totally different. There was a SYTTD episode just like it where the girl liked the dress but wasn’t sure. Once she added a hoop skirt to the dress to poof out the bottom she LOVED it.
I think if you added a long cathedral length veil, a big bold bouquet and a statement piece necklace, it will look FABULOUS.
@craftybridelovesnerdygroom: Unfortunately I’ve never been blessed with skinny arms. No matter how much I work out.
I don’t have cellulite or saddle bags, and I have super tone legs, but never my arms. They looked fat in every dress I tried on.
One detail that is important is that we are having a completely outdoor wedding/reception. A more formal poufy dress would’ve been out of place.
How about jewelry? And ideas?
I’m looking at sashes now.
