IF you don’t LOVE it then try to sell it and find something else.  DO you have the money to buy something else even if this dress doesn’t sell?

sharoonbear my suggestions would be:

*letting the pintucks on the left side out so that side is closer to the ground it may not still hit the ground but it be closer.

*instead of having 3 pick ups on the right see if they can change it to one of some sort (there was a pnina tornai gown on say yes to the dress the other night that had a great pick up on one side to show off the detail of the fabric underneath. i think something similar to that would be great for this gown. and the asymetrical look would be wonderful on you!

this is the best i could find but there is a gown that is similar to yours that is exactly what i am thinking i just cannot find it. and have the pick up be further over on your side.

*the sweat heart neckline is stunning on you! but it needs to be taken in. i think once that happens you will be going WOW! my girls look fabulous!

I think it might hit the floor when you take it down, since the left side does.  Having said that, if you want a new dress, you should definitely see what you can find before giving up.

Try David’s.  My plus size friends have had really good luck there, sometimes even off the rack!

That’s a sucky situation!!! ๐Ÿ™ What a bummer!

Could you have the dress altered to be more your style? Change the neckline or hemline or detailing, add straps, etc.?

Or if it is the dress in general that you don’t like could you sell it on a website (maybe preowned wedding dresses) or ebay, and then take the money and find a new one?

6 months should be plenty of time! Especially if you go to a place that sells dresses off the rack or as samples…then you can have it right away!

Whatever you decide, I hope you will find a solution that makes you happy!

I do think it’s a pretty dress if that is any consolation to you.  You look lovely in it.  Like the other posters said, perhaps you could sell it and use that money to purchase another.  Good luck  and hugz.

 I don’t know what you see but I think you look amazing. On the other hand do what you need to do to feel beautiful on your wedding day.

I think it’s a lovely dress and it does give a very pretty silhouette!  You have fabulous curves in it! 

Maybe the consultant didn’t make you feel confident about it and rushed you, but I think you look absolutely amazing!

Instead of splurging on a new dress, take it to a good seamstress and she what she can do to make it fit more your style.

I honestly think you look absolutely beautiful and couldnt imagine a better looking bride! I think you are a little put off by the sales person and the overwhelming sales pitch. I am sure with the right shoes and hairstyle, you will feel as gorgeous as you look.

You’re going to look great. The bees have given you some excellent advice. I think the pck-ups need to be let down as well. The dress is beautiful. Especially the top. Gorgeous!
