@colleenmc29:  Hiya, is it that you dont like the dress style/look or that the dress itself isnt flattering on you? Do you have any photos that you could put up? Sometimes little things like adding a sash or other accesories can help. Another option is to have another dress for the reception.

If it’s really awful, you can DEFINITEY still get a reception dress!

@colleenmc29:  Iknow this isn’t what you want to hear, but DO NOT compromise on your wedding dress. You won’t feel at your best (which you really should) and you’ll see pictures and recall that sad feeling for a very long time. You have plenty of options if you look for sample dresses. I know you don’t want to hurt someone’s feelings, but this isnt a prom dress. It’s your wedding gown. Get what you want and see if she can make that dress into a rehearsal dinner or reception dress.

Gosh, what a hard spot to be in! First of all, it isn’t done yet so you may end up liking it more than you expect. This could be part of the pre-wedding stress. Do you have pictures you can post?


Second, I think you can still totally speak up if there are some things that you would like to change. She may be able to incorporate some of the things you want.


Third, BlondeBee’s idea is great! You can always get a reception dress you love. Rent the Runway is a source if you don’t want to spend a lot.

Ive been there. ive already sold 2 dresses. the first i did love at first but ended up being too small cause i ordered it too early and ended up not liking it. the second i was talked into by my family over one i really liked, had it for like a day and put it up for sale. so now im shopping for dress #3. if you know you dont like it put a stop to it. let the lasy making it know your wishes. it is your dress after all and you want to look good on your big day. you dont want to feel like you settled. with 2 months left maybe there is still time to fix it. in the end its your wedding and your dress, dont worry about making them happy!
