Don’t beat yourself up! I’m sure you looked great. The pictures you posted aren’t great mostly because I can only see you from the neck down, but it’s never as bad as you think it is! And I don’t bother comparing yourself then to yourself at your wedding. Just try to focus on the things you like about the wedding pictures. Or don’t even look at the pictures and remember what an awesome day you had. The memories are way more important than the picutres!

I’m sorry you don’t like your pics. I do see the difference you are refering too, in that you looked more sucked in with the smaller dress. but I bet when those professional pics come, you will still look lovely, and be glad you have them to remember your special day by.

I see what you’re talking about but to me the salon dress looks too small and not in a “sucking you in” way, more like a “I hope her boobs dont hurt too much” way. I think you looked beautiful on your wedding day.

@Jamersss:  The difference is really minimal, is that the only thing you didn’t like? Were you happy with your hair and make-up? If so, don’t panick, I’m sure you’ll be happy with most of you photos ๐Ÿ™‚

I can see the difference but ONLY because you pointed it out. I bet with how in love you are with your new husband, you were absolutely radiant and everybody thought you looked gorgeous. I think you do ๐Ÿ™‚

Well………i wasn’t too pleased with the make-up and the hair!!!!!!!!!!! They were done by a cousin, who’s a professional so i hadn’t the heart to tell her i thought it was a bit too much..i did rehearse the hair (and in the end it was nowhere near that!!!!) but not the make-up..funny, don’t recall anyone saying “you’re sooooooooo beautiful!!!!”..but i do recall my aunt seeing me transformed into a bride and crying sooooo at least for someone i was beautiful indeed  (and i know my husband loved it, so it’s what matters). As for the photos, well, above the weird hairstyle and the strong make-up, it’s the love and happyness that truly shines so i try not to think about it Tongue Out

I’m not really seeing the difference you refer to, the pic of you at your wedding isn’t at the same angle as the one at the bridal salon, so there would be differences in your appearance from different angles, Your dress fit you beautifully tho, so I wouldn’t worry.

I had the same problem with the pics from my second wedding. I was in such a state of bliss, until I saw the pics! Why the hell no one told me about the degree of back fat present – I will never know. Maybe you can do what I did – I went a few months later and had portraits done dressed in all my wedding finery. At least I could pick out the poses I liked and I had some pics I was happy with!
