You look beautiful. The dress is so elegant!

You looked beautiful!!! well, if he had a preference he could’ve stated it earlier.
Men are butts, let’s be real. They don’t know the difference between a line, mermaids or ball gowns. I’m sorry he was too honest, for what is worth I think you look beautiful!! Hopefully he brought you flowers or a chipotle burrito to make up for his mistake.
guys are buttheads! i dont care if my man thinks its ugly he better lie lol! you look gorgeous and what do some guys know about style anyways,
I can’t believe all the women bashing this poor man for falling into the trap of answering a question honestly. He thought she was beautiful, just not the dress. He didn’t understand that she saw the dress as an extension of herself in a way. A man wouldn’t think, “She doesn’t like my tux. She doesn’t think I look handsome.” It didn’t occur to him something like that might happen in a woman’s mind. That doesn’t mean he is insensitive or stupid. He’s just not a woman. Go figure.
Where can I join the line to give your husband a slap?
Seriously what is wrong with him? The dress is gorgeous and suits you perfectly.
If you wearing a ballgown or a particular dress was so important to him, he should have told you beforehand. If he wasn’t prepared to do that, then he should have kept his mouth shut.
It’s the same as girls who expect their men to buy them a particular type of engagement ring, don’t tell him of their wishes and then get annoyed when he isn’t psychic. Surprises are all very well, but if the thing being bought is that important to you, don’t leave it to chance.
What?! Is he insane?? You look beautiful and that dress looks perfect on you! I can’t imagine a dress that would suit you better. All that matters is that he thought YOU were beautiful and that he’s thrilled you two are married now. Sometimes guys are a little bit too honest without thinking of a womans feelings. You are beautiful!
Good thing he wasn’t the one wearing it!
… Seriously, you looked beautiful! How did YOU feel? Because your pics make me think you felt pretty darn good! 🙂
Leajon: I love the alterations you made to the dress! I think it looks great on you! I hope you felt beautiful that day and don’t let him make you feel otherwise!
My Fiance is clueless when it comes to clothes. I’m slightly concerned he won’t love my dress (just found it this weekend!), because it isn’t white/ivory, its got a bolder lace than most dresses have, etc… I love my dress almost as much as I love him, but when that day comes, I could wear a potato sack and be just as happy. I can see the happiness on your face in the pictures!! No dress will ever compare to someone who is so radiantly happy!
Oh my gosh you look incredible!! This actually happened to a friend of mine, she got married and looked absolutely stunning but her husband told her that her hair looked messy and when she walked down the aisle she “didn’t blow him away” and he preferred other looks. I think hers was worse because she didn’t even ask for an opinion. She was absolutely gutted and cried a lot about it but three years after the wedding and I asked her about it and she said she no longer cares as she’s realised he always is painfully honest.
Honestly I LOVE your dress. Truly. It’s gorgeous and unique and simple all at the same time. It looked awesome on you, so don’t even think about that any more–there’s no question!
As for your husband…dude. Men! I cannot believe he said that, but then again, I could see my husband saying something like that (because he too can be an idiot). Sure, maybe you shouldn’t have asked, but come on, why wouldn’t a guy just say, “Everything about you was so beautiful that day!” and be done with it? I’ll say it again: men!!!!
Try to forget his comment. Give it time–when you look back on the pics in a few months you’ll see that we’re all right– you look amazing!
I feel like guys are getting a bad rap here–anyone could say unintentionally hurtful things without realizing the impact they can have. This isn’t a ‘guys are stupid’ thing as much as a ‘someone didn’t think before they spoke’ thing.
Anyway, I’m getting off track. You looked good, OP. I’m sure he didn’t care one iota about the dress on your day. He thought you looked beautiful! Take comfort in that and don’t dwell on the dress.
You rolled the dice by wanting to surprise him with the dress. He didn’t get to tell you what he preferred, and you’re not a mind reader. You got this one wrong (at least for him It won’t be the last time someone gets something wrong but that’s the chance. It’s just part of life. It’s not horrible. It’s just part of trying to surprise people.
I cant speak on how to get over this, or why your husband was a dolt and told you that. You did look stunning though! Beautiful!
