Hi, I wrote a PM to you. Sorry this is long. I just really want you to get this message. I am about the same size as you, only a little shorter! And I had the same worries. It is wonderful that you are in PA, as I ordered a dress on-line from “Rowan’s Bridal” dba “Keepmeinstitches.biz” from PA. Hopefully you can actually go there and try on gowns. The gown I bought was amazing!! (And so was the price!) I am so happy that I took the chance and ordered my gown from them on-line. You just need the right gown!! I felt absolutely gorgeous on the day my daughter got married. I am so happy I bought the gown from them. I only had 2 months to order, so I reviewed their policies, got professionally measured locally, then called their customer service to make sure they had the gown in stock and to have them help me order the right size. I do not have any ties to this business, and I am just telling you this because I am/was so happy with their service and the product!! I’ll end by attaching my photo. Contact me if you wish!

As I get older, I am so happy that I look more and more like my mothEr, not just physically, but because of her wonderful heart. And more than anything, I hope her heart in me shines through the most. When I was a kid, my mother was the most beautiful woman in the world to me. As the years have gone by, that has become even more true as I realize how strong and kind she is. I am sure that your daughter feels the same way. To little girls, our mothers are our first standard of beauty. It’s also the first time we realize that love is more beautiful than our weight or hair color. I am sure the love shining on your face will radiate regardless of what the scale says, and you will be a gorgeous mother of the bride.

Dear Mama, I feel your pain. My daughter told me a year before the wedding she wants me in her pictures. I have been battling with a a 70 pound weight gain and have avoided all photos of me for the last 5 years. I knew it was important to her, she is beautiful as I used to be and she is very thin, I look like a refrigerator next to her now. I tried to lose weight and people said the same things to me about the glowing thing and looking beautiful on her day. I knew the day wasn’t about me , I wanted to lose weight but I failed. I lost a little but when the wedding photographs came out , I was disgusted. Her husband didn’t post any of me on Facebook and I am ashamed. I was a beauty queen in high school and people want to know why I was not in the photos. I guess I am so vain I cant let people know what I look like now. My daughter told the photographer not to take a lot of photos of me at my request he must have thought I was an idiot. I am very depressed today, I feel like a failure in life. Being fat is NOT OK No matter what anyone says! Photos tell the truth and for me it wasn’t pretty!
i was even offered a chance on the show The Confident You.. But it may have been a scam I turned it down.
Unless you are overweight and battling with diet and exercise all your life , you have no idea how hard it is. People say well stop eating so much and walk every day. That doesn’t work for me. The
only time I was successful was 10 years ago when I went to Lindora , exercise every single day for
1 hour with cardio and weights and personal trainer and ate practically nothing. I lost 65 pounds in 5 months then slowly gained it back and more.
I have a terrible metabolism and those blessed with good ones should thank God everyday!
My suggestion is try very hard to lose some weight., if it is important to you how you will look in the photos. I have a full round face and when I smile big I look like a moon.. I am sorry I am just hating myself today.
I hope your daughters wedding turns out wonderful . My daughters photos were absolutely beautiful as long as I wasn’t in them!
I am sorry to be so frank , but fir me being fat is no blessing!
My suggestion is, try really hard to trim down ome
