OP what does your 1st dress look like?
OP what does your 1st dress look like?
I think the +60 likes on the first post saying it isn’t flattering says a whole lot.
One thing I’ve learned from wedding planning is that there’s no such thing as objectively right. Everyone has different opinions on what looks good and what doesn’t (i.e., the “help me choose which dress” threads where the vote is split but commenters are convinced that one dress it perfect).
I think the dress itself is awesome, and I would love to be able to pull it off. I think the OP probably knows that because it is not as structured, there’s no way it will provide the same hourglass shape as the old dress.
Sometimes you want a dress that isn’t the absolute most flattering.
ETA: And what I mean by not most flattering is that we could all be in ruched, corset mermaid dresses that give us a banging shape, but there are lots of other considerations that go into it that make us choose something else, like comfort, venue, and uniqueness of the dress. I don’t think it has to be the MOST flattering dress you try on for it to be the right dress for you.
Unfortunately, the dress is not flattering on the OP. I saw the picture of the other bride wearing it and didnt think it looked good on her either. Its just not a good look.
OP what does the back look like? Does it come up high just like the front?
I really loved your Pnina and I’m usually not a fan of her gowns. It gave you such an hourglass shape. I thought you looked so happy in that dress. The Lazaro, while unique, makes your silhouette look like a rectangle and I think the horsehair trim on the tulle skirt is so wide it distracts from the beautiful lace and beading.
I too think that the original is more flattering. Do I love the original? no. Do I love the new one? no. Does that matter at all? no!
What matters here is what YOU want and what makes YOU happy.
Everyone has different taste, some more unqiue than others. My own mother has said to me when we were out shopping “thank you for bringing me but at the end of the day all that matters is what you want”
Yes, I do think that most brides want a dress where the guests will say “wow, that’s beautiful, what a stunning bride and great taste!” but so much of that comes down to your confidence, your smile, etc. People remember the good time had by alll and being there to see that commitment between you and your husband. You will remember how you felt, you will look back on your photos and be happy. Consider this when making your decision.
People always have their opinions. We often seek reassurance for the choices we make. But at the end of the day, it doesn’t matter what others think! I posted a poll on here about my dress regret and while the majority of people agreed with me, I think even if they hadn’t, I still would have made the same decision. Dont let others sway you or change your mind or you’re just going to end up with dress regret again.
Stick to your decision and rock it girl! Lazaro makes some super unique and amazing dresses, and you know what you want. Besides, you said it yourself, it needs some altering, etc. You will look amazing on your big day, no doubt about it at all!
Is the zipper in the front?
The top says beachy boho with a twist of 1960’s mod, and the bottom says modern, couture bride. All together it is a very unique gown and if it makes YOU feel like a bride then that is what matters. I chose a gown that wasn’t the most flattering style for my body too, but I felt so amazing in it I can’t imagine choosing something else. I think your smile in your photo says it all and I can’t wait to see the final look! As for the veil, this gown is so edgy, maybe you could even just find a really interesting hairpiece instead? I think a halo style piece of hair jewelry would really mix the boho and couture feel of your gown and look incredible with it. I recommend erica elizabeth designs, I got mine from her and I adore it! Much more worth the money than a piece of fabric IMO. I’d check out this website for some ideas! http://www.ericaelizabeth.com/products/bridal-headpieces/?view_all=true
I liked the photos you took with your grandfather in your first dress. But I have to admit you do shine in this dress! It looks lovely!!!
It’s your wedding and your choice but your first dress was far more flattering, and at least 93 other people think so based on applecat’s post with 93 likes.
I give up on the bee… I really don’t give a damn if yall like (which clearly you don’t) my dress. I said on the second page, before yall started all the unnecessary bullshit comments, that I knew it would not give me the same shape my first dress did. A corset that is laced so tight to where you can barely move or breath is definitely going to cinch in your waist more than something that is a breathable mesh, “anyone with a pair of eyes can see that.” This dress will look completely different when it is made to be more proportionate to my height and taken in around the waist. Also, how do you know I wasn’t going to get “completely shape altering” shapewear? I didn’t like the shape of my Pnina when I wasn’t on a pedestal and my dress wasn’t touching the ground. I didn’t do this for anyone else, besides myself. And I do believe that some of these comments were unnecessary, especially when you could see how happy I was and that I didn’t ask for opinions. Your “opinions” would have been more acceptable if I would have asked “What do you think about this dress compared to my Pnina?”, but since I can read, I can tell that I clearly didn’t ask that anywhere on here. I think the almost 100 people liking the first comment would have sufficed, without everyone else ganging up and throwing in their 2 cents. Either way, I am in LOVE with my dress and will not be changing my mind. Glad none of yall are invited to my wedding so you can’t tell me in person how unflattering you think my dress is, even though you would probably never have the balls to say that to someone in person. So carry on with your bitchiness.
Also, if you like my first dress so much, you should buy it so you can have a “flattering, hour glass shape.”
And thank you for the other comments.
I don’t really think many of the comments were too harsh though. As you just got it I think many people are wondering if you really think you made the right choice and it would still be possible to cancel the order if you looked at it again in a new light.
I don’t think it’s a personal attack, more so that people don’t want to see you upset later if you decide it really isn’t flattering too you. You gotta take criticism with a grain of salt. Not everyone is out to put you down.
Edit: I am still wondering though if it zips in the front. I’m on my phone and with the way that front separates am I right? Now that would be super odd if it does.
apparently I’m the odd man out bc I honestly was not fond of your first dress. I actually love this new one you’ve chosen!
