SaraJeanQ: it’s a fair point. I don’t think people should expect to cry – I didn’t – but if you get a feeling for one dress that you didn’t with any other, I think it’s normally a sign.
That said, I think OP should try on her first dress again, alone, and see if she still has the same feeling when her family is not there.

Honestly, there is nothing wrong with your dress at all; it’s beautiful!. In fact, this style seems to very popular among brides nowadays. At the end of the day, however, it doesn’t matter what dress you wear: your husband-to-be is going to think you’re absolutely beautiful.

I’m cracking up right now. I just showed Fiance these 3 pics and asked if he loved or hated any particular dress shape. In all 3 pictures he said he liked the trumpet/mermaid. He has no idea he picked the same shape in every one. He thought they were different lol. I’m not solely going to go off that, but I will definitely take it in to consideration.
The tears the 1st time were definitely somewhat related to the group I was with. It was my mom, my friend since age 4 and my bestie. They’ve all been waiting 34 years to see me in a wedding dress (and probably thought it would never happen at some point lol) so tears were pretty much guaranteed from them. That was the first big white dress I put on. All the dresses I tried on before were “colored” because I wanted a colored dress. They picked the white one out of a catalogue and pulled it themselves. I came out in it and thought I looked beautiful and skinny. They all started saying “she’s gonna cry!”. I said “No I’m not”. Then I got overwhelmed by all the “she’s gonna cry!” and “yep that’s the one” comments. And I cried and every one cried. I tried on two more ugly dresses and we left. My mom sent me pics of myself the dress all week. Some of which made me teary again. I think the biggest thing about that dress that moved me to tears is that I looked thin and I looked like a bride! That was something I had kind of almost given up on ever happening. I’m pretty uncomfortable and sad about my current weight so an outfit from Ross that makes me look thin, could potentially move me to tears TBH. I have a pic of me in a certain dress after I lost weight (after my first child) and I cried when I saw it. Not trying to take anything away from the wedding dress or reaction but it’s worth noting. Here is is…. lol
I cried in the ruffle dress a second time when another brides grandma told me I looked beautiful in it. I definitely want to try it on again. I can’t wait to do so this Sunday! I think it will tell me a lot. Today the salon was virtually empty and the consultant didn’t try to sell me on anything. She just let me do my thing and helped only when I asked. It was just me and the dress. David’s Bridal is usually a zoo. That alone creates different feelings. Though I’m confused now, I’m glad I tried on something that fit my vision today. If I didn’t I would have always wondered!

im0502: lol! All I picture now is Donna marrying David in that dress (90210). I think that is something I wasn’t sure about. I would prefer something timeless that I won’t laugh at myself later for wearing like 80’s puff sleeves. The ruffles do not at all feel timeless or classic (or romantic really) though I don’t mind them when I have the dress on. That dress is fun. And I’m fun. But how “fun” do I want to be on my wedding day? I’m not sure!

mrsbrizz2017: for what it’s worth, in the photo you just posted of yourself, I can’t even tell you’ve apparently put on weight since then. I’m not just saying that. That’s how well the wedding dresses suit you – the first in particular but the second also.
Your FI’s reaction also says to me that he loves your curves – no matter what you might think about your figure – and wants you to wear a dress that shows them off. So no ballgowns for you!

mrsbrizz2017: Love the Rosamund!! I tried it on too in that same color. I fell in love with the top because it was just sooo comfy to me. It was my runner-up but its the only picture of me in another wedding dress (besides the one I purchased) I still have in my phone so I can still look at it once in a while.
–You look GREAT in it!! I’d go with that one, but I’m a little bias lol

What I’ve learned is that everyone’s taste is SO different especially on wedding dresses. At the end of the day, despite all the negativity, do YOU still like the dress? If not, I would definitely change it. If you still love it, then it’s fine. However I do think timelessness is important. My taste from 5 years ago is already super different. I dont want to get something just trendy now.
You should be able to shift the deposit to another dress?

mrsbrizz2017 : I think most men don’t understand wedding dresses. I watch four wedding and say yes to the dress all the time with my fiance. He has yet to like any of the dresses we have seen. The wedding dress is about you and how you feel in it. So if it makes you happy, you should wear it (:

mrsbrizz2017 : To be honest, when people say they want a timeless dress, I dont think that really happens unless they are getting a dress that looks like something from the 50s. Then I guess you could make that argument. Puffy sleeves were 80s. Satin in the 30s. Who is to say that the next decade will bring back sleeves, then all sleeveless dresses will be dated!
And your fiancee won’t remember. Mine cant remember to take the trash out…every Wed. I can’t imagine yours will recall a dress he half saw on a TV show that he probably didnt want to watch in the first place. 🙂
Keep your dress!

You are one frickin’ beautiful lady! Geez. He’s gonna spaz out when he sees you in that dress. It’s far and away perfect.

When your Fiance sees you hes going to see all of you & think your beautiful. Were the ones that really notice the dress & if you love keep it! If you dont love it DB will exchange for another dress regardless of what the receipt says. I did it 4 months after I bought the first dress with no problem.

did you make a decision on that dress?
I’m sure it will be beautiful!

I would stick with whatever you love. If you want to keep searching for the blush dress, go for it. If you want to stick with the one you have, which is beautiful, then keep it. It’s your dress and you’re the one that has to feel beautiful wearing it.
As for what your Fiance said, I’ve watched episodes of Say Yes to the Dress and Four Weddings with mine and he’ll say in one episode, oh god that’s a hideous dress and then he’ll see the exact same dress or one very similar in another episode and his reaction will be positive. I don’t think guys notice as much as we do. And if he really doesn’t like the ruffles, he may not even notice on the wedding day because he’ll be too caught up in how much he loves you, how beautiful you are and how happy he is that you’re his wife.

I agree with PP, your FH is marrying you not the dress, but really that dress is gorgeous! He hasn’t seen it on you, so you can’t really assume he doesnt like it on you because he sees it on someone else. Perspectives can change 🙂 In person is always the best way to judge something than online or on TV.

princessbee1991 : dreamy2017 : lovingbrideforever : amyd223 : tiffany7 : Thank you guys so much. I just couldn’t get over it and ended up cancelling it and buying this Maggie Sottero. I love both dresses so I don’t have any regrets but I’m a little dissapointed I let other people sway me so much because I really loved how I felt in it. Here’s the final pick.
