I think it looks fantastic! And once it’s in your size I think it’ll be even better. The neckline probably needs to be more accentuated – sweetheart – but I think you chose well πŸ™‚

x-infinity-x:  In all honesty  I love my dress but I do not feel like it is the ‘one’. I wanted something with long lace sleeves but couldn’t find anything similar, so I chose a dress that suited my figure and I liked the look of. I’m sure that on the day though once our hair and make up is done nicely that it will become the ‘one’ for us both πŸ™‚

2 things –

Sleeves can sometimes be added in alterations, but this does not look like it would be great with sleeves &

Sometimes our mental image of our wedding doesn’t change with the wedding planning. My wedding was always either going to be beach elopement or winter wonderland…it is neither. The dress also was not one that I could have imagined, but it seems fitting for my newly hatched day!

I’m trying to think what you think could be wrong with it.

All I can think of is that the sweetheart neckline could be more heart-shaped? It could be more fitted at the top too? And you could put more glamour into it with a slimmer silver belt? Or a constrasting bow or flower? Think Vera Wang πŸ˜‰ Accessorise with whatever’s your style πŸ™‚

I love it and I think it has some sparkle! I think it’s a classically beautiful dress that you will look back on and love!

I like it, although the belt gets lost in the lace of the  dress. From pics it adds more crumply bulk.

I think it’s beautiful.

I love my dress. I can’t imagine a more perfect dress for me. The first time I tried it on, I thought, “well, this is probably my one of two favorites I’ve tried on.” Later, I kept on trying on dresses that were like it. When I went back to try on more dresses and had that one out as a comparison, even as I tried on dresses that I really liked, when I saw that one hanging up it was, “oh, there’s my dress.”

So, I didn’t have the tearful, “this is the one,” but it definitely is the one and i love it.  I think it may just take time to sink in for some of us.

I agree, its not always a this is my dress moment!  I have liked lots of things about several dresses but not one is “perfect”.  So I am just going with the closest to perfect dress!  I think that happens with more brides than you think!  All of the wedding reality shows and junk make us all think we have to have that emotional freak out moment, but not all of us do:)  Your dress is beautiful, makes your figure stunning!

So, I am biased, because I think we may be dress twins! But it is BEAUTIFUL on you! So I didn’t have that “moment” either and my dress couldn’t be more perfect for me.

Very classic and beautiful on you! But I totally understand your “not the one” feeling. I didn’t get that feeling with the one I chose either, but looking back at the photos of me in it, I now love it more and more every time. I too wanted something more “blingy” than what I ended up with, but I always complained about the beads hurting my underarms when they were at my sides, so that made me turn away from the dress I liked the most. In the end, I know that I will be 100% happy with the dress I chose, and the more I look at it, I understand why I went with it. It’s just that I didn’t get that initial feeling. I always go with the gut!
