    Hah I think you’re being silly! I didn’t even notice until you pointed it out! The dress looks great on you plus you saved a fortune so I think you have a win win situation here. Everyone always obsses over minor details when it comes to their wedding dress….I know I did. Stop stressing πŸ™‚

    I think it looks beautiful on you, but if you will be worried about it I suggest going and trying on different dresses. You never know you may end up falling in love with your original dress all over again.

    Love it Love it Love it!! Then I noticed the repeat pattern – but that’s only because you pointed out. It’s lovely on you though!

    It’s a beautiful dress, and I only noticed the subtle pattern after you pointed it out.

    Lace is supposed to have a pattern, lol. If it didn’t, then it would just look like cotton or some other fluffy material. You can see the pattern in the Monique L’Hullier dress too. I think yours actually looks nicer (especially with the belt).

    Your dress is lovely, stop worrying! πŸ™‚

    i voted for this dres in your previous thread and i still love it…i think it’s a great version of that ML dress for a fraction of the price. i don’t think the “pattern” of the lace takes away from it – tons of lace dresses have a pattern like that, and honestly no one is ever even going to notice it. i can’t even see it in the second picture, only a little in the first.

    I like a little texture/pattern in lace.  If it bothers you sooo much, it looks like you’re going to have to hem the dress.  You could ask if little bits of the extra lace could be worked into the ‘spaces’ to interrupt the repeating pattern.  I don’t think you need to go that far though, the dress already looks lovely on you.

    Also, I have to close this screen now because I’m afraid the ML model is going steal my soul with her stare…maybe she just has you in a trance “buuuyyyy meeee” Smile

    I actually love the pattern! I think it’s unique for lace. But if it bothers YOU..then that is something to think about. But I love it!!

    Did you get married?  If so, which dress did you wear?  What size are you and would you consider selling your dress if you still have it?
