So I love my dress. My mom came around when I sent her another picture but I’m not sure she’s convinced. So far random strangers on the internet aren’t loving my dress and I’m a little worried that FH won’t love it (I know exactly what he’ll say when he sees it). I haven’t actually bought it yet but I adore it, I love it, I’ve been dreaming about it for weeks and I finally tried it on tonight. Did you care what others thought when you found the one you love?

What I really cared about was that I loved it and that DH would love it. Everyone else was just frosting 🙂

I do care about what other people would think about my dress, but I also think is YOUR big day, so you should wear a dress YOU love. Of course you can listen to your mother thoughts and sugestions but don’t make that ruin your choice.

@Amaialoca: My mom has come around and does like my dress, i had to get a good angle of it and the sample is a little too small for me so it doesn’t look quite right.

I don’t remember caring too much, but luckily for me, when I found my dress, the only person with me was my mom. She absolutely loved it.

@Cory_loves_this_girl: it’s funny, because I have a feeling FH will make fun of it, I know how he’ll describe it, he’ll probably say it looks like toilet paper, but he’ll also comment on how great it makes my chest and butt look. He really doesn’t care what I wear as long as it shows off the assets 😉 – (tastefully)

@Rubbs: I was alone, I think if my ‘entourage’ had been with me instead of via text they might have had a different opinion.

It was a -10 on my “Give a shit” meter.

I didn’t care AT ALL. I trust myself, and it’s not like I was looking for anything unusual. My mom knows this, and isn’t really picky, so I would say, “This is pretty!” or “I don’t like it!” and she would just nod and tell me that I look beautiful. Haha I love my mom.

@MsGinkgo: I was scared because DH had REALLY strong opinions on wedding dresses, so even though I loved my dress and thought he would too, I still had a little fear. He still talks about how much he loves my wedding dress to this day.
I think as long as you are confident in your dress, he will think it looks great on you!

Total honesty? I didn’t care if people thought my dress was pretty, I just cared that they thought I looked hot in it. But that’s how I am about clothing in general, and how I feel about other people’s wedding dresses in general too (whenever somebody asks how their dress looks, even if I think the dress itself is hideous but it makes their body look amazing, I say go for it, lol)
I have totally supportive friends and family who understand that it’s not about their personal style preference and sat in the room while I tried on dresses and didn’t say a word other than “shut up you crazy bitch you do not look fat” until I was in the dress I would buy and I said “okay guys, now I really need to know, I think I’m going to buy this one, let me know if for some reason I shouldn’t” to which I received a resounding “finally, duh, buy it”

When I put it on, the other dresses paled in comparison, and I knew the FI would love it, because, my bum looks good in it, and whenever I wear something strapless he always says how much he loves when I wear strapless stuff, because it shows of my shoulders.
The most important part for me though was how much I loved it, and I did, but everyone else’s very positive response has made me even more and more sure about it. 🙂

Phfft I already know that some people don’t like my dress but their opinions don’t matter to me.
Ok, with one exception being my mother – she doesn’t like that my dress is red or has a dramatic skirt or is low cut. She wanted me to wear something more demure and understated, which are two adjectives that really do not describe me or my style at all. But, at the end of the day, we both recognize that I need to be the one who is happy with what I’m wearing and my gown is EXACTLY what I want.

I want FH to like it, but other than that, I don’t really care what people think of it.

@MsGinkgo: Pic of your dress?
