I think the dress is beautiful on you. 

 

Some of us just aren’t that into the princess moment. Doesn’t mean anything. 

Both marriages I picked my dress online. Both times I changed because my fhs were insistent about their tastes, too. Lol. 

Honestly I could find 1000 dresses acceptable. What matters is you are comfortable  and happy. We tend to over complcate things when we have preconceived  ideas and expectations.

Your dress is so beautiful on you bee. I never had a huge “bridal” moment either, and neither did anyone else I know in real life (and I am obsessed with weddings, huge say yes to the dress fan, and cry at the drop of a hat). After 5 appointments I got my dress off Etsy for an amazing price (I also had a strict budget) and I liked it just fine when I first tried it on. But after my wedding day, when I was all done up with hair/makeup/veil and I wore while marrying my husband, I absolutely LOVED it and still do now when I look at the photos. But to be honest, there are probably hundreds of other dresses that I would have been equally happy in. At some point you need to stick to your decision.

Firstly… that dress looks amazing on you!

and honestly not everyone has that “omg” freak out moment, some just put on the dress and it’s comfortable and they feel good in it and that’s that! It doesn’t always have to be a “say yes to the dress” moment, I didn’t cry or or freak out when I found mine. I put it on and was like “this is lovely, it’s comfortable, I look good in it, and it has pockets!!! Sold” haha! I was tearful nor was my heart beating out of my chest, I was just happy to find something that I liked, in my budget that didn’t feel like a weighted blanket!

Totally stunning.

That moment you’re describing isn’t a universal experience so I wouldn’t sweat it. Maybe you’ll feel it when you get dressed on your wedding day, or when you first see professional photos back, or not at all. Doesn’t matter. This gown is a winner on you!

Honestly I think you can do better. It sounds like you’re trying to talk yourself into it. I’d keep looking.

ellcoll :  This might be a crazy idea, but why don’t you incorporate your love of jeans? If your wedding is not formal, a jean maxi skirt, a simple but stylish top and sandals might work; just as an example:

I think it looks beautiful on you. I didn’t have a huge emotional moment either.

I found a dress I like enough. I did not have a crying moment, but it makes me happy. The only reason I haven’t bought it yet is because I am hoping to lose weight. If your budget is limited, you have to be realistic about your options. You say yourself you’re not that into dresses.

It’s a great dress, by the way. It flatters you.

It’s a beautiful dress. More importantly, it suits you.

It’s a gorgeous dress and gorgeous on you!!!! With a few accessories and your favorite person by your side putting a huge smile on your face, you will look amazing!  

(I bought my simple, satin, knee-length dress online for a steal … my wedding was everything I wanted it to be and so much more.  The pictures look fantastic and I don’t regret a thing!)
