Ok so i need help from you girls! Ok here is my dress story:
I went to a bridal boutique and tried on two dresses and had a minor panic attack. I was with my mom, mother in law, and two bridemaids. I did not fit in the sample sizes and felt horriable about myself trying on dresses. Plus the dresses were so heavy and the constulant had to pin me in the dress. Overall horriable experience!
I am self consious of my weight. I have gained 30lbs since college 4 years ago. If I could loose 20 lbs I would feel so much better about myself. But loosing 20lbs is going to take some time. My wedding is in December 2012 so I dont have time to loose weight before I buy a dress.
So with that being said i wanted to go back to try dresses on right away because I didnt want to assocaite trying dresses on with having a panic attack. The next day I went to David’s Bridal with just my Maid/Matron of Honor. I loved David’s Bridal because they had my size that I could try on … no squeezing into a dress the time. So i tried on several dresses and ended up falling in love with one so i bought it! I was all excited about it.
Until …. i told my mom I bought a dress. She was so upset that I went with out her. I had sent her pics and she said she didnt like it that it made my hips look to big. I was devastated. So i told her lets go back to Davids and ill try the dress on for you in person which we did. She still wasnt impressed so i tried on another 500 dresses! I tried on a dress simliar to the first one i bought and she cried. So i made myself fell in love it with it to please her and ended up switching my dress.
So you would think that would be the end of my story. Nope …. a couple days later regret started to sit in and i realized that i loved the first one and switched to the second one to please my mom. So i went back to Davids by myself and changed back to my first dress. When I had it on again I knew it was the one! I loved it so much, i felt great in it, it was light and sparkly!
So the problem now is one thing my mom said was i think you rushed into buying the dress and i cant stop thinking did i? Should I have not bought the dress from davids bridal and waited and tried more on at a boutique again? I am posting pics of the dress. Let me know what you think!!!!

I think your figure looks awesome in this dress. Was she caught up in the cut? Or was she just upset that you chose without her?

You look great. It’s your dress, not anyone else’s.

if u love it. then it was the right decision.. the fact u have gone in three times and still love the dress u bought means it is the right one..
i had/have major dress regret. i bought my dress the first day i went shopping.. got tricked into buying in because of stupid policies. i thought if i tried it on again during the next appointment i would get over the dress regret but the store had sold the sample. so i had to wait 6 months for my dress to come. tried it on two weeks ago. and took it home. still having feeling its not the right one but everyone else is reassuring me it is.

Your dress is beautiful and fits you well. I think your mother was just upset she couldn’t share the experience and was taking it out on the dress, so-to-speak. If that is THE one then you need to keep it.

I think mom went in wanting to hate the dress, because she didn’t help you pick it out. This dress hugs your curves beautifully, and you will be a stunning bride in it. I’m sorry your mom is making this difficult for you.

Honestly, it sounds more like she was upset that you picked it out without her than that she doesn’t actually like it. I think you made the right decision switching back (it looks amazing!) and I’m glad you had the guts to do it!

so beautiful! i love that dress on you – maybe she was just hurt that you didn’t go with her to pick it out – perhaps you can be sure to let her go with you to pick out shoes or other accessories and that will help her to love the whole look?
