@ellascissorhands:  I really, really mean this–I love this picture.  I love your dress, I love the acessories, and I think you look great!  I also often have a very negative reaction when I first get pictures back.  I know what I am uncomfortable with about myself and so I always look at those things first and they tend to cloud my view.  I often have a very different view of pictures of me after even a couple of days, let alone a couple of weeks.  I hope that you come around to your photos, because this one looks really nice.

I’m usually just a lurker, but I had to log in to say…. I think this picture is gorgeous. You look timeless and elegant.   Having said that, I’m very sorry that you’re so upset. I understand that feeling of disappointment. I think you should put your pictures away and focus on the good parts of the wedding.  Maybe journal your happy memories, ask your friends and family to tell you their favorite parts of the wedding, talk with your husband about the funny, endearing, happy bits of your day and don’t look at your pictures!  Take them out again in a couple months and I bet your perspective will have changed.  Good luck and congratulations on your wedding!

We are our own harshest critics. I saw the picture and thought your dress and jewelry are awesome. You are the one who put the spotlight on your arms and chin. I do it to myself all the time.

I love your style. I also agree with a PP that we are our own harshest critics

Remember that you won’t always feel this way about your photos. Whenever I look at old photos I used to hate, I’m surprised by how great I looked.

You look beautiful! And I’m not just saying that to be nice, I don’t post on here that often either and I felt like I needed to log in to make sure you understand that you looked gorgeous on your wedding day! 

We are our own worst critic. I found myself analyzing my hair, body, makeup, etc. in every picture and then realized that I was being silly and stopped. I think everyone does it!

Don’t be silly, you look amazing! I didn’t see a double chin at all! I look bigger than you, and I’m going to flaunt my dress, flattering or not! Just think of the good things, like the fact that you are a married bee! Congratulations lovely 🙂

In all honesty I really don’t think your arms look big at all! I feel like all (or most) of us women are kind of self conscious about our arms to begin with. I don’t know exactly what you’re referring to with your chin – looks normal to me…I don’t see a double chin.

I love your dress! So classic and sophisticated. I love dresses with straps!

@ellascissorhands:  I see you as a classic bride in that photo. Sorry, I don’t see what you’re seeing at all!

I think that you look beautiful too!. I love your dress- very Audrey Hepburn! But the only problem I see in the pictures is that you look a little sad. I really love how you wore your hair and short veil. Very pretty.
