Just tell her youre thinking about it and maybe she’ll stop talking about it for a few weeks, if that doesn’t work redirect her by asking for her opinion on things like jewellery, shoes, veil etc then hopefully she be too busy thinking about something else. I love your dress it looks so nice

I think you need to ignore what she’s saying to you and tell her straight that this is the dress you love,and its what you want. The fact that you knew what you wanted but when then when you tried on others you realised actually this is the type of dress that I really like says you should stick with it. You don’t want dress regret. Good luck ๐Ÿ™‚

@alyssaC:  I think it’s cute that your grandma is into bling, but it’s your dress and you should stand firm with your look. (In a nice way of course) what are you planning to do about jewelery? Maybe you could make up for the lack of bling in that area?

ETA your dress is amazing!!

Get some blingy shoes and hair accessories and a blingy purse and maybe when she sees you all done up she will be okay with it

I would tell her straight up you’ve thought about it, and decided against the bling because you love the dress as is.  Then I’d ask her for advice on something else, ideally something you don’t have a really strong opinion about, to sidetrack her from the dress issue and make her feel important.

If you remove the flower, you could probably add a jewelled belt!

Do sparkly earrings or/and a bracelet!

Don’t let anyone (even if it is grandma) push you into changing your vision. Everybody has an opinion. You can’t listen to them all (mine included! ;)).

You will look fabulous no matter what

You kindly and gently tell her it’s your wedding and your dress.  Unless she’s paying for it, she doesn’t get to choose.

I think it’s beautiful! I wouldn’t change it at all, and I think the idea of adding some bling jewels will be great. Have you told your grandmother that you normally love bling but it was this dress and you saw it and it was just so perfect? I’d try to make sure she knows you agree with her, and it’s this dress not dresses without bling that you love.
