I think it looks great on you. It’s a really pretty dress, and you got a great deal!

About the cap sleeves, do you like them? To me, they are not sitting right and maybe that’s the problem!

I’d go with this dress, it really looks great! I wouldn’t have said anything if I didn’t think so!

The lighting looks different (softer) in the first pic (I assume this was taken when you initially bought it?)… I think the harsher lighting in the second two pics is making the material look super shiny which is probably having an impact.  I think it looks much nicer in the first pic.  If you’re having a pro photographer at the wedding I think you don’t have to worry, your pics will come out right like the first pic.

I think you look great. I don’t know if you had an extra crinoline or something in the first pic? It does look a bit more floofed out but that could be because they were selling you the dress so they were spreading it out for you so you could see what it looked like that way.

I agree with prettyflowers.  I would chalk it up to bad lighting and maybe the camera.  I think it looks great on you in the first pic, but not so great in the other pics because the fabric is looking ultra shiny.

I think it looks really good on you. I will agree with the others, lighting is everything!

I would never guess you were that short looking at those pictures….I think that dress looks amazing on you and actually gives you height!

I think that dress looks fabulous on you and I can’t tell that you are that short.

I think it might be the bustle. When the skirt is all spread out like in the first pick, I would think you were short or anything. The bustle appears to tuck in some of the pick-ups in the second pictures, so while I think it still looks great, I can see how you might percieve it as cutting you off there. (I think mentally we expect the dress to keep flowing out, but then it juts sort of stops, so maybe that is tricking your eye?) Philosophizing aside, it is a beauitulf dress and you look great in it. Maybe when your hair is recolored and you have some makeup on, go back and take some pictures in better light to reassure yourself?

I agree that somethings not right with the cap sleeves. They arent’ suppose to site like that. I think the dress fits your body great & makes you look amazing. I’d actually loose the Cap sleeve or wear them up off the shoulder how they usaully are.

Its really pretty – you look awesome! Nerves are getting to you… if you truly dont like it, then buy another and sell one or both – no sense hating it forever and having regrets.
