The thing that will make the difference in how you feel is if you smile. Look at the difference between the first and third pictures. When you smile, you project confidence, even if you aren’t feeling it. When you project confidence, you will start to feel it.

The dress is actually a flattering style but it needs some alterations through the bust. It’s not just the lack of bra. When you have the bra sewn in, have them pay some attention to the neckline. You could even open the neckline up a bit. I’m not a fan of the veil. Can you try pinning it more away from your face? Show off your chin and neck, don’t let the veil take over! And girl, it is a world of difference when you’re smiling. You have a really great smile that lights your whole face (look at how your eyes change when you smile!!) so show it off!!

daniellehue:  I think you look beautiful. You have a stunning smile!! I agree with PP – I would pin your veil back a bit to reveal more of your pretty face. I do think the neckline needs alterations, not just a bra too. But girl, you look so beautiful in that dress!

daniellehue:  your dress and veil look nice on you. It seems that you could use some adjustments at the bust/neckline, but that’s about it. you also have a love,y face and smile. You will be a beautiful bride, I hope you stop worrying.

You look wonderful, especially in the last picture where you are smiling. You have a great smile 🙂 I also love the veil. Have the belt sit up closer to the bust so it does not look loose.

The other Bees are spot on, your smile makes ALL the difference, you look so beautiful in that last photo.

Your dress is super flattering in the body but you could show “the girls” off a little bit more. Opening up the neckline, just a little, not enough to give grandma a heart attack, will help you not look as boxed in by material. 

Your bouquet is beautiful too btw. I love the blue touches!

You look beautiful.   

 

At first I was going to say you needed a smile.  Then I saw the picture with your smile and bouquet and thought to my self “yup, just a smile will do.”  You look so lovely.

I think the dress is flattering on you! I think the veil is what’s throwing you off. I would go with wearing the veil in the back, as opposed to over your shoulders in the front. Also, try an updo at your next hair trial, something soft and loose, with curls falling around your face. Then see how you like your look!

Also, try wearing the small, blingy belt to directly under your bust. That will help. In those pics it looks lower than it should be. Or remove it completely.

I agree…Open up the bust a bit and as one pp said putting the belt right under your bust will be great.

It’s an awesome dress and you look fabulous in it! Everyone is insecure but I think you found a great dress that really flatters you.
