so the time has come to pick out my dress but after trying on several dresses I feel more confused than ever. I’m also having problems finding the dress and listening to everyone’s conflicting opinions. I figured your opinions could really help me in finding the one. What do you think of this dress on me? My only hesitation is that I am very small and this dress is very over the top. Can my body pull it off? Am I wearing the dress or is it wearing me? I would love your honest opinions.
Thanks in advance!!

I think the dress looks great on you! Keep in mind it’s not hemmed (I’m assuming you’re short too?) so maybe the excess volume of skirt is making it seem like too much for you. Personally I think it’s great!

I think it’s beautiful! It does look like it needs to be hemmed up a little bit, but other than that I love it – the skirt isn’t so full that it’s overpowering, but it’s still enough to add some fun and drama.
ETA: Ha – looks like Pinkmoon and I think alike!! 🙂

I’m not crazy about it. This dress looks pretty trendy, are you sure this is what you want to see when you look at your photos with your grand kids? It looks good on you as far as shape goes, I’m just not fond of the frayed petals.

I love it! to be honest with you it looks better on you then the print model. I actually tried on this dress and since I have a short torso it looked really bad but on you it looks perfect. I love it!

This is my dress so I’m totally biased 😉 I think it looks great on you and it’s not “wearing you”, you are wearing the dress! Try on some other dresses if you’re having doubts but I saw definitely keep this as an option!

@IzzyBear: I love the dress!! I think I’m going to take your suggestion and try on others to compare. Hopefully that will give me the answer I’m looking for. If nothing else lives up to this one, then this one will be THE ONE!!

@Futuremrskgb: That’s what I did. This was the first dress I tried on my second time shopping and I fell in love, but I continued to try on more dresses just to make sure. Nothing else compared so I knew I was making the right choice! It’s always better to try on others now so you won’t have any doubts later. Good luck and let us know how it turns out 🙂
P.S. don’t you hate how the pictures don’t do it justice?! lol

I love it, I love dresses that are the opposite of simple!

@Futuremrskgb: Unless the dress is super crazy poofy, which I haven’t even really seen yet, I don’t agree with the “dress wearing me” bit. My Aunt said the same thing to me. I mean, the models are tiny, and they wear them. They were designed to be dramatic. They’re not SUPPOSED to be a dress that you can wear to just anything.
Don’t worry about the dress wearing you. Unless it’s just a poor design, you’ll always look good in it as far as that goes.
I think it looks nice on you ^_^

@yanamari: you are totally right about the dress having to be special. It has to have the wow factor. I think I just need to wrap my head around the fact that its MY wedding, I should stand out. It will take some time for this idea to sink in. Lol

@IzzyBear: When is your wedding date?
are you bustling it? If so, what does it look like bustled.
I couldnt help but look at the picture of you in your dress: STUNNING!! If I get the dress I’m going to have a white belt instead of the sash as well.
btw it looks so much like a Lazaro!
