What will break your moms heart is if you wear a dress you hate on your wedding day.

Trust me, I had same issue and I was so scared to say to her and when I did she was like find another dress! I said are you sure? and she was like are you serious it’s your wedding day I wouldn’t want you to feel any less beautiful than you should on account of me. The conversation was a bit more loving than I’ve wrote but in simple terms she wasn’t the least concerned about the fact she bought it she was only concerend that I would b happy.

What is it you don’t like now?

sundance :  Your waist looks so good and this dress, enough though this isn’t the final fitting, gives your body such a lovely shape and makes you shoulders look really delicate. I don’t think the bottom looks to clingy. It looks stunning on you 🙂

Oh the dress looks beautiful and you look divine in it.  It’s not your standard strapless number. It has a bit of flair and wow factor with the more unique cut to the skirt. I can see though that it may not compliment a pregnant belly. I think that is the best way to explain to your mom the need for a new dress. It’s a shame though as I think you look gorgeous in that one…but how YOU feel is what matters here, not my view

I think it looks nice enough to wear for one day.

Like you, I too had a majority satin dress, and I too hated every pic of me of me trying it on. None of it looked nearly as good as what I had pictured. I even had three different fittings where nothing was actually done to the dress, I just didn’t like how it looked and thought somehow they could “fix” how I felt about it. 

The day before my wedding I was convinced I made a terrible desicion and would hate my wedding dress pictures for life. 

On my actual wedding day, once I got the dress steamed, after all hair and make up was done, guess what? I felt so damn beautiful!! I thought I looked like a movie star! And the professional pics turned out so much better than all the pics I took. 

Satin is a tricky thing. You look a hundred times more beutiful than you think you do.
