if you love your dress, why should it matter what kind of look it has? i think it’s beautiful, btw. πŸ™‚

Technically, yes I think it does.  But I’m not going to hate, my dress has pickups too πŸ™‚

haha I have to comment. and no it looks fine ..ad pictures are so misleading and I’m sure it looks great on you. I was looking at the Maggie Sottero Victoriana and in the ad the “pickup” looks wayyyy over the top..I saw a pic of a bride selling it and it looked so beautiful I wanted it !!! lol

These look like pickups to me, but a little different than you usually see.

But your dress is gorgeous. Who cares as long as you love it?

If you love your dress, then that’s what matters! Haha I was going to say, that’s a unique color choice before I saw your comment about your dress being white πŸ™‚ Although I think blue all over could be cool too…

Yes, that is a pick up dress. I would not buy that dress for me.

But what amazes me is that as much as I would not like a certain dress on me, you rarely see a bride who doesn’t look beautiful in a dress she loves. It may be an impossibility, like a rule of physics, that if you love your dress, you will look radiant.

My dress is an all-over lace fit and flare dress with a modified sweetheart neck and I’m sure a lot of people would find it boring because it doesn’t have a lot going on but do I care? No! I love it. Don’t stress. We all have personal style and it’s PERSONAL because it isn’t the same as everyone else’s.

Yep, but don’t call it the “ever hated” look!  Just because some people are dead set against them, doesn’t mean that anyone is going to hate your dress.  I’m sure that dress will look beautiful on you!

My dress has some pickups, I never really thought anything of it, until I saw so many people say how much they didn’t like them.  I’m not concerned, I love the way I look in my dress πŸ™‚

It is seriously beautiful!  The ultimate princess dress!

I originally wanted the Victoriana but it made me look like a cupcake.
