I don’t really think the train is THAT long, and it bustles like a dream!  I think as long as you like it, that’s all that matters.  My husband’s family pretty much had zero reaction when I showed them a picture of myself in the dress, too.

Please, love your dress. Don’t let other people second guess you. I remember that I always used to get teased about how I dress (read:old fashioned) well, guess what, now Mad Men makes it all right to dress my way! I love your dress, you love your dress. That’s all that matters Laughing

Well first of all a father is bound to say “oh that’s nice” he’s a GUY. ANd sisters are always jealous. Don’t let anyone change your mind. And there’s no doubt, your fiance will LOVE it…he loves you and it’s a beautiful dress. You look gorgeous. Be encouraged and just shake thier comments off…easier said than done I know.

No, I wouldn’t be upset about it, but then again I have a “screw you” attitude when people disagree with me, so that could make a huge difference.

Perhaps it was not what they envisioned you to be wearing, but the key phrase there is that YOU would be wearing it, not them. As long as you love it and think your Fiance with love it, then try to let the other stuff slide off like water on a duck’s back!

@BridetoBe101610: I know what you are saying. My mom wasn’t all that thrilled with mine when I showed it to her and it really hurt my feelings. I love love LOVE my dress, but it still made me think “Maybe I should keep looking” when she was like “It’s ok i guess…” 

All that matters is that you love it. Your fiance is going to think you look amazing in it!

Aw don’t let their comments influence your opinion.  They probably just expected something different.  For the record, I think its beautiful and looks amazing on you, and the train is so nice!  Maybe they are used to something totally different??  What you chose is in style and beautiful, don’t listen to them.

I think your dress is beautiful! I didn’t show my in-laws my dress because I am afraid that they will tell FH how it looks (he wants to be surprised). Plus, it didn’t really matter to me what they thought since they weren’t paying for it.

I think that it is a beautiful dress and looks lovely on you.   They may have expected another type of dress?  Men don’t tend to make a big fuss, or express much.  That dress is simple and elegant, and when you have your hair done and your jewelry on-you will totally rock it!!  Don’t sweat it!  You will look amazing on your wedding day!!

The dress looks gorgeous on you! And if you love it that is all that matters.

 

The *only* thing i see is that you don’t look happy in the photos. Could your FI’s family be reading off that and thinking YOU don’t like the dress?

 

A photo of you smiling in it (or them seeing you smiling in it on your wedding day) could make ALL the difference.

I think that dress is Beautiful! It looks so nice on you too! There is something about weddings that makes people think it is okay to tell you their opinions even if they arent the nicest. Ignore them. If you are happy that is all that matters!

If you love your dress then don’t second guess yourself! I think it is beautiful and suits you perfectly 🙂 I KNOW that many people will not like my red and black dress but I ADORE it and I know my FH will and thats what counts. I understand wanting to please people but remember it is your wedding and you should wear what makes you feel beautiful! And it doesn’t matter if you spend $20 or $20,000 on your dress as long as it is what makes you happy!

That dress is beautiful and much more with you in it.  People have their own expectations and ideas of what a dress should look like to them.  I would not worry about your fiancee he will love it.
