The first thing that my mom asked me when I got engaged was what kind of dress I wanted, and I said THE BIGGER THE BETTER. I wanted a big Cinderella dress, or at least I thought I did. So the first time I tried on dresses they were all big. But all of a sudden I no longer want one anymore, partially because when I asked my Fiance what kind of dress he sees me in he basically described a mermaid style dress. Aside from him saying this I didnt want a big dress anymore 🙁 But my mom sister and one of my bridesmaids are in love with this dress on me……IDK what to do I am soooooooooo confused!!!
sidenote: bees this dress wasnt in my size so the fit is a little off

That dress looks AMAZING on you and if you love it, go for it! When your Fiance sees you in it and how beautiful you look, nothing else will matter

First of all, I love this dress on you. You look amazing!
Second of all, go with what your heart tells you. If you love the dress, go for it! If it’s not, then keep on searching. Don’t stop until you find what makes your heart truly happy. As for what your fiance said about what he sees you in, don’t worry about it. He will love you in anything, and will see only you, and not the dress.

I think the dress looks amazing, but go with one about which you feel 100% positive! If you’re unsure, don’t buy it yet. You have plenty of time to find the perfect gown. 😛

I think it looks like you have an amazing figure that would look good in something more fitted. I personally do not care for princess poof dresses. But if this is The Dress, then go for it!

@Mrs. aMAYSing: It’s beautiful! I LOVE big ruffly gowns too. I’m in the same situation. My Fiance and my pops both prefer something fitted. I purchased a dress last year that’s more fitted, dropped waist, but I can’t stop thinking about the other dress – big w/ ruffles. Ultimately, I think you should get the dress you LOVE & feel great it; otherwise, if you buy/settle on a different style, you may always be thinking of the big cinderella dress. Regardless of the dress you choose, your FI’s gonna love whatever you wear on the big day. Buy the dress YOU love.

Wow, you look amazing!!! Very beautiful!!
I went through the same thing when I went to get my dress. Each one of my bridesmaids had an idea of what kind of dress they wanted to see me try on, for that same reason I chose not to take my mom ’cause I knew she was going to do the same thing. What really helped me was the worker at the place I went to! She brought me sooooo many different styles; she would tell me to walk down the “isle”, which had mirrors on every side and feel the dress and look at myself walking in it! Although all the dresses were beautiful, there was only one that I felt was the ONE! It did end up being a puffy dress and the first one I tried on!
Maybe that could help you too, seeing yoursel walking down the “isle” in different dresses, but overall, listen to your heart !

go with what you love. I am the same as you. the shop where i bought my dress knows me as the “the poofier, be better” girl because I kept saying that over and over again. and they laughed when i brought in my own ebay-bought hoop skirt to put under my dress.
Fiance is amused by me and calls me his little disney princess. he would love to see me in a slinky Pnina dress with the *twitch* see-through bodice and everything… but he loves me and he loves seeing the smile on my face more than anything.
I have no doubt that your Fiance feels the same way about your smile. he will love you in anything as long as you are happy.
