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!

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.

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.

@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.

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.
