I really think you should keep the dress, HOWEVER, it will probably bug you knowing that your Fiance hates the style. I imagine you will probably go with a different dress, but if you love the one you picked out I think you should definitely keep it 🙂

Keep the dress. Guys think they know fashion, but most of them can’t remember what you wore yesterday. More than likely he will forget what this dress looks like before you’re married and he’ll love you in it. Also, if you love this dress than he can get over it. You look awesome in it.

So I went to another bridal salon on my lunch break and tried on Maggie Sottero- Rosamund (well I tried on a bunch of dresses by a bunch of designers but only liked this one). It’s everything I wanted in a dress! It’s blush, it’s romantic! They can even order fabric from the designer and make a matching bolero that will cover my tattoos for the ceremony like I wanted. It feels age appropriate (I’m 35) and there’s nothing controversial about it (like ruffles everyone either loves or hates). I am totally confused now lol. I know with about a doubt Fiance would love this. I didn’t cry like I did in the other dress but I love it!
(love the applique)
I plan on dropping some lb’s before the wedding but the sample was a 10 and fit pretty good.

Truthfully I like your second dress you tried on much more. However, I am going with my original thought when going to reply.
Keep the dress you love. He never saw the dress on you. I’m not saying the grooms opinion doesn’t matter but it also doesn’t matter. You get to wear what makes you feel like a princess! You choose!
My groom voiced he didn’t think he would want me in a ballgown type dress. Guess what dress I got. A ballgown. Did I tell him? Nope. Will he love it come time for the wedding. Absolutely. I know he will.

OMG… the new dress. You’re a knockout. Please compare the two pictures… Plus I honestly thought you were early 20’s to choose a ruffled Disney dress (that also means you look super young!)
I think you should so buy that Maggie Sotero dress and I bet your fiance will love it too. (Admitting perosnal bias: I love lace, hate the original ruffle theme)

It’s beautiful! I think you should keep it. I would have killed to find “the one” when I was dress shopping! Thats a big deal, you should definitely stick with it.

When it’s you in it and you’re all done up and bridal he probably wont even notice it or could even love it on you.

Wowwww! Your new dress is also so beautiful! You look so good in both dresses! .. Honestly I think you couldn’t go wrong with either one, and if u think ur Fiance would be partial to this new one then why not get this?

Love the new dress 🙊 I know you shouldn’t change it on principle but the new dress is a stunner, your Fiance jaw will drop when he sees you. And the ruffle dress looked a bit too 90s to me.

mrsbrizz2017: Wow, the new dress is a total stunner!! You will look beautiful in whichever you choose….I don’t think it’s necessary to cry in the dress to know it’s the one though!

mrsbrizz2017: you didn’t cry in this dress. That says it all.
The new dress is stunning and you look great in it, but I still don’t think it’s you. It’s traditional and I don’t get the impression you are a traditional person.
Who cares if you’re 35? You don’t look it. Besides, it’s about how you wear the dress, not how old you are – it’s about whether you have the confidence and attitude and sense of fun to pull off a dress like the first one. And I think you do.
ETA: I just went back through your old threads and the one with your little boy and the dress clinched it for me.
But then I found that your dream was originally for a blush dress. If that’s the case, if the new dress really is your dream dress then go for it. But forget all about the age appropriate thing or your Fiance hating the first dress because those aren’t issues.
ETA 2.0: I also feel compelled to churck this in as it has the ruching and trim of your first dress plus the blush of the second. It’s by Essense.

clairebbbear: Who cares if she didn’t cry? That’s not the bottom line of dress-buying. She was on her lunch break with no family or friends there. Truthfully I cried wearing one of the first dresses I put on but did not cry when I tried on my eventual wedding dress – just grinned like an idiot.

i like the first one more, it is more flattering. the one in the tv show was ugly, yours doesnt look like that in my opinion.
