It’s a beautiful dress and it looks really great on you!  I don’t think you’ll be disappointed in your choice.  Besides you worked hard to drop 70 pounds, you might as well rock your new body!!


I picked my dress yesterday too! I didn’t know it was the dress for me.  It was in the running, but not my favorite at the time even though it flattered my figure the most.  I finally narrowed it down to the dress I picked and one other.  I sat there and really tried to figure out how to pick the one because my two choices were VERY different, one a fun dress and the other my classic and bridal, but both very me.  Finally I decided I can wear a fun dress to any event, but feeling like a bride is a once in a lifetime thing, god willing. 

You look stunning and the detail on the train is out of this world, I’m crossing my fingers that your dress anxiety will go away!

You look amazing but if you have this much anxiety over your dress I highly, highly suggest you find another one.

When I found my dress I knew it was the one and I had no anxiety, and I firmly believe every bride should feel that way when they find the dress because if not, you’re going to regret it the day of.

Well done losing the 70lbs. That is absolutely fantastic. You figure is lovely. Show it off!

I did not have the cry moment. I just thought that of all the dresses I had tried on the one I chose looked the best on me. As you mentioned, comfort was a big thing and that was pretty high on my list when looking for a dress. I did not want something that I couldn’t move easily in or have to adjust all afternoon. If you love your dress and are comfortable in it then do not second guess yourself. Be proud of your new body!

You look amazing and that dress is beautiful. I never cried when I found my dress. I loved the way I looked in it and I was comfortable moving around in it, so I bought it. It was the 2nd dress I tries on, but I had a very clear idea of what I wanted before I went shopping so it was more of a confirmation of “yup..this is it” more than some huge, emotional revelation.

 Bee you look amazing! that dress is stunning on you! I never cried when I had my dress on either. It also was the only one that had all the elements that I pictured. If your gut is really unsure then keep looking if you have time. otherwise stick to your decison.

Congratulations on the weight loss you look amazing! I did not have the omg this is it and cry or have other people going omg this it and crying like say yes to the dress. I picked one dress and then when I got home realized I liked another very similar dress better after looking at pictures and ended up changing my mind. I went back to the store to try the two dresses on and a few extras to make sure I picked the right one. I also second guessed my self because I thought I wanted something completely different so I had to get over that in my head. That dress looks amazing on you. Did you try on lots of styles? Were you comfortable in it? Was there something you didn’t like about it? If your not sure about it call the store and see if you can try on some more dresses on. You may find something you like better or it will help you feel more confident you picked the right dress.  I think it’s hard we build up this dress for a lifetime you go shopping it’s overwhelming and frustrating and you get home and you have second thoughts. But I think it’s all normal and not everyone cries when they find the dress.
