    You have a super sexy hourglass shape so that dress is awesome on you!  But if you are not feeling it, then maybe try on some more dresses?  Have you tried on any ballgowns??

    10 dresses (at least for me) isn’t really that many. I would keep looking- as long as you are looking at dresses within your budget. I feel like your mom might be influencing your decision just a tiny bit, maybe go dress shopping with someone else until you get it narrowed down to your favorite 2 or 3. I think that you look good in mermaids definitely, but that you would look even better in a dress that is tailored and structured a bit more than this one. This one is still really pretty though, I would definitely keep it on the list.

    I like it and it looks good on you, but if you don’t absolutely love it, don’t order it. You still have plenty of time! You deserve to looooove your dress, just not like it.

    I would say keep looking. Not because there’s anything wrong with your body – you look smashing hot – but the dress has a few odd features that are causing me not to like it. Like the obvious vertical seams on the bodice, the empire line belt (that seems to be a bit lopsided) and the ruching on the hips that seem a bit off.

    I think you can do better. Besides, this is your chance to finally wear the wedding dress you couldn’t have before – why compromise by wearing something you don’t actually love?

    It looks beautiful on you! But if you don’t love it, don’t settle. I had dress regret with my first dress and 2 months before my wedding, I found the one!! its everything I’ve ever wanted and I love love love it so much. Keep trying on dresses until you get that feeling!!

    @tdodd88:  Did you husband just hate that dress you are wearing in that photo? Because I can probably understand that due to the colours – other Bees have commented here that the dress in that colour looks dirty.

    I think that ballgown shape looks pretty fantastic on you though. As would mermaids.

    @tdodd88:  oh my god I love you in the tulle ballgown! If your hubby doesn’t like it, how about a tulle that isn’t ombré?

    I bought a dress I liked. I never had “that feeling” because truthfully, I’m not like most brides. I don’t get “that feeling” about anything. Don’t be disappointed if you don’t have the “burst into tears, jump up and down” moment because you just might not. It isn’t anything wrong with you, or the dress, but I think a lot of women are “tricked” into thinking that if they don’t have that moment, they’ll regret it forever.

    Buy a dress you like. It’s as simple as that.

    @tdodd88:  I love the tulle gown on you!! I agree with what another bee said about a ballgown in only one color. I’m not crazy about the brown on that one. But you also look lovely in the more fitted dress! Just don’t settle. 10 dresses isn’t too many to try on at all!

    If you’re not MADLY in love with it, keep looking!

    Funny enough, my Mom was obsessed with me in that dress, too!
