- Wedding: April 2012
I need help.
I feel like I am second guessing my decisions so much it is driving me nuts.
The story is – I have just relocated to a foreign country with my fiance, so wedding planning etc are done without my core support group physically with me.
One of my girlfriends were here on a biz trip so we went dress shopping together and I picked this dress. It was the 1st shop we went into and the 4th dress I tried on. I fell in love witht the dress and I suppose it was an impulsive purchase as the excitement of ‘THIS IS THE ONE’ rushed to my head!
As the wedding date draws closer (2months away), I am getting these doubts and have been sending pictures of my dress to other friends (girlfriends, gay friends almost everyone), and I am getting such mixed comments. Some say it’s so pretty, some says the I shouldn’t wear a bolero, some say my veil is too understated, one even commented that the satin fabric of my dress seemed too stiff? I feel like I can’t win.
I don’t know what I am after here, but you lady bees are brides to be or just married too so you have a better eye on wedding dresses. Please be honest with me, if it’s hideous at least I still have time to get a new one.
I just want to feel confident and beautiful on my wedding day.
Dress is bought from Rosetta Nicolini, it’s called Adrienne. Have a look at the link as well because it shows the train, my pics taken do not show train at all: http://www.berketexbride.com/wedding-dresses/adrienne
Bolero was custom made by my tailor – who I wasn’t familiar with since I just moved here, power of google I guess.
So I suppose my questions are:
1. Is my dress hideous?
2. Is my dress old fashioned / out dated looking?
3. Does my bolero go with the dress? (I am really not confident about my arms, thus need to cover up)
4. Does the veil go with the dress? It’s a single tier, chose this because it won’t cover up the beading details in the back or fight with the train.
5. Is the whole veil + bolero combo too much? Should I just wear the hair band shown in pic?
I am an utter mess right now, please help me :(((
Looked at all the real brides pictures online and wedding bee gallery, everyone’s dress look so gorgeous, I feel like why did I pick this dress??
