Yup, I picked the dress that noone likes over everyone’s favorite. People judge a dress based on their own tastes, or especially here from photos that can often be deceiving. I always knew a trumpet dress wouldn’t work on me for various reasons when it was said and done, and I was right. I wish I had bought the dress I loved five months ago, I would’ve had enough time to make modifications to it to make it just perfect. Go with your gut feeling – there’s no reason why you should “suck it up”. The only opinion that matters is yours and you know how you want to look better than anyone else can.

Well, if it makes you feel better… I didn’t really like it. lol. Not my taste at all.

I am a two-dress bride as well. I bought one that my mother loved, my friends loved, etc. but that I didn’t love. I let their feelings sway me in my decision. It took me almost 6 months to realize that I was very unhappy with that decision, then another month to work up the guts to tell my mother.

In the end, I now own a dress that I love. I am much happier, and surprisingly… everyone likes the new one better. I showed Fiance a pic of my original one and he was like… “Ew.”

You have to do what makes you happy.

I think people’s natural inclination is to approve the wedding choices that you’ve made because they think it will make you feel better, when in actuality you really just want honest opinions. 

I wouldn’t listen to her…I think it’s most important how you feel about your dress, not anyone else.

I’m sure he’ll love whatever you end up with! If it makes you feel any better, my fiance has read over my shoulder in the past when I’m on WB, and anytime he sees a girl worried if her fiance will like her dress, he gets all heated up and says that he’ll love it no matter what because how can he not? 

He’s definitely assured me that when you’re walking down that aisle, your fiance will just be so happy to see you and he’ll love the dress no matter what! 

And I think it’s great that you’re going to find a dress that makes you happy – it doesn’t matter what everyone else thinks. In the end, you’re the one who has to feel great in the dress!

Aw, it’s really hard when your family fall in love with a dress you don’t. I’ve had a similar experience this week, although I haven’t bought the dress yet, and it does make you feel really blue. However, if it has taught me anything it’s that you will look the best in the dress you love the most. Your family will then love it because you shine in it. Definitely choose a dress you love, that’s all that matters!
