I reallt like your dress!  And you don’t look flabby at all, you look amazing and I think the dress is perfect for a beach wedding!

from a bride thathas had dress reget…my advice is wait and go somewhere else and try on some others ๐Ÿ˜‰ you can always go back and get it…or find it elsewhere, but buying then regretting stinks.


It is beautiful though and looks really good on you ๐Ÿ™‚

First off, you look great. I lovvvvee the back of that dress. To be totally honest, though…I feel like the front needs something. Since you’re having a beach wedding, maybe a really fun, chunky coral or turquoise necklace would make it pop. Or a different belt could be an option too.

I would say 2 things.


The dress is amazing on you, but that’s MY opinion- not yours.

You didn’t love it, you liked it a lot, that’s how I read it- with that…


you should go try on a few more somewhere else so you can either realize that IS THE ONE or realize it is not.

I say this because I had a dress in mind *the one i bought* but had to try on like 12 dresses to convince myself that I loved that dress because it wasn’t as ‘weddingy’ as I believed it should be.


Basically I put myself through hell instead of just trying the damn thing on- however it made the last dress (the one I got) that much better.

i also don’t cry a lot and I cried, the gay bestie cried and my super NON emotional bridesmaid cried.

My mom also said I looked beautiful, which I didn’t even know she knew that word!!!

I would suggest you try a few other dress shops so you cna compare. Personally, I decided on my dress after checking out the competition and sleeping on it.

I think it is really cute, but you should definitely look around more

Sleep on it, for sure.  You’re not in a time crunch, nor is it the last one they have, so if you don’t have an “I can’t live without it” feeling, keep shopping.

IMO, it’s a beautiful dress on you, and perfect for a beach wedding, but if you’re feeling meh, it’s not the one.

I think it’s a pretty dress and it looks lovely on you. Having said tha, I don’t think it’s unique enough to buy without looking at and trying on other dresses first. You can always go back to it!

I’ve been to 3 different places so far in and in each one there was one or two that I loved but I’m waiting for the “moment” that this is the dress and I haven’t felt that yet.  If you’ve only been to one, I would try more and keep this in the back of your mind to return to if needed.

Love the back of your dress, but listen to your heart.  Go out there and try a few more dresses on!  You have time — find something you really love!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Hi! I too went to DB as my first trip to see what styles looked good on me. I liked one dress, and the others i thought were horrible. I say go to more bridal places. You dont have to chose right now. And with your budget, there are many more beautiful dresses!

I think the dress looks good on you, but really cheap and bad on the model.  I find most model pictures to be awful, though.  I suggest looking around — go to smaller, local salons as well — and see what else you find.  David’s Bridal is not the best you can do!  It’s not even always the cheapest.
