    @lazy:  That’s what I think, he won’t notice it’s the same dress that he said he didn’t like 14 months prior to his wedding. Unless he’s incredibly tuned in to women’s fashion, and then he would be gay and not getting married to OP.

    This is dress is adorable on you, OP! But I would caution you to wait a while, take your time, do more looking around unless you ust want to have dres shsopping DONE.

    Given what Fiance has said about what he likes and doesn’t like, maybe you could look for a dress that is similar but more toned down e.g. a slightly lower or more sheer illusion neckline, simpler lace, but otherwise the same silhouette and style (which In My Humble Opinion really suit you).

    Something like this (by La Sposa) maybe?

    I don’t get an 80s vibe at all from your dress when you wear it. It looks more 50s/early 60s to me – and that’s totally a good thing!

    @JenBabe:  honestly. being super honest here — you look stunning! your waist, so tiny, and it’s just so sweet & romantic. perfect for what you’re describing.


    i was a bridal consultant at one time and i know that once you have “that feeling”, it’s hard to find it again, if possible. this dress will speak for itself on that day once you get all dolled up! 🙂 


    you will look stunning.

    It looks way better on you than the model! I don’t think the dress suits the look of the model. I know that they choose models because they’ll look good in “anything”, but I think when it comes to wedding dresses there are certain types of dresses that are “meant” for certain body types and looks that people have. It suits you.

    It looks amazing! He is NOT going to remember what dresses he said he didn’t like and he will think you look gorgeous no matter what you wear!

    It looks like it was made for you!! You look radiant in it 🙂 He may not have liked it on the website, but no worries when he sees it on his bride-to-be! And you’re right, it is perfect for that time of day!

    @JenBabe:  i think its a beautiful dress but you have your FH opinion in mind too you have plenty of time to keep shopping and see if you fall in love with another dress.

    this dress i’m sure looks so different from the catalog picture i’m sure he will fall in love with the dress just Caz your wearing it ; ) if you do keep shopping dont show him a thing lol if i showed my FH my dress i can bet he would not like the style of my dress but it doesent matter hes going to love me being in my dress ; ) pick what you love and dont show him hes going to love the dress no matter what how can he not its on you!

    It’s tradition that the groom not see the dress before the wedding for a reason. I’d buy and wear what dress I want. He’ll find your beautiful no matter what.

    I LOVE it on you! Seriously it looks awesome! The model picture is much less flattering so I can see why he wasn’t crazy about it. You might want to wait until closer to order like has been mentioned just so you don’t end up with dress regret, but I love it!

    It’s gorgeous! Don’t show him anything – buy what you love. It’s your dress!! Believe me – when he sees you that day he will love your dress no matter what it looks like, because he loves you!

    He’ll love it on you. I think it was a foolish move to show him those dresses.

    It’s a totally different thing to see a dress in a picture than to see it on a real person. I wouldn’t mind showing the picture of my dress to my Fiance, because I know he wouldn’t be able to picture it on me and it would still be a surprise to see me in it :D. I think that the personality of a person makes the dress look how it will finally look like. So even though your Fiance didn’t like the dress in the picture I’m 100% sure he will love it on you, because it really looks stunning! In fact I think the dress suits you better than the model.
