It looks very very nice on you! Which part do you feel doesn’t look great in the pictures?

I think it’s hard with photos, especially when you’re not done up to your liking. I LOVED my dress while wearing it, and then went home and looked at the photos snapped and was like, “Omg, what did I do?”

Now I have the dress in my size and I am in love again. Just ignore the photos if they bother you, because that’s not how you’ll look on your wedding day anyway.


And for what it’s worth — I think it is absolutely beautiful on you. The natural waist and soft skirt is so lovely!

I have had the same feeling about my dress off and on.  I KNOW it’s the right one though!  I remember the way I felt and how excited my mom and BMs were when I walked out in it, but when I would look at pics I was like, mehhh…not so sure!  My best advice is to stop looking at the pictures!  You truly do look beautiful in the dress and I absolutely love the details, so stop doubting yourself ๐Ÿ˜‰ It’s perfect!

I think you look fabulous in these photos and you’re being overly critical of yourself when you get home from the store. It suits your body shape really well.

I also think that if you FEEL amazing in the dress, that will shine through on the day and you will LOOK amazing too!  Sounds like you picked the right dress to me ๐Ÿ˜€

@sweepeeslove:  I am also guilty of picking myself apart in photos.  It’s difficult not to sometimes!  And when you throw in the fact that this is something you’ll be wearing on a very important day in your life when all eyes will be on you … Well … Obviously that makes any insecurities flare up!

That dress looks fantastic on you, though.  It’s soft and flowy and romantic … Lovely!  

I hope you’ll start feeling better about your decision.  Maybe once it has been fitted, you’ll feel better about it.

@sweepeeslove:  I think you look beautiful! I’ve started second-guessing my dress, too…

I love the FIRST picture where I tried it on the sameple the first time, but then when MY actual dress came in I went back and took more pictures, and I don’t like those pictures… I don’t know what happened! I felt beautiful in the dress still, and I like the first photo, but I don’t like the rest of the photos… eep!



In any case, I think you look beautiful in your dress, and you don’t need to worry at all! If you FEEL beautiful, it will show! ๐Ÿ™‚

You seriously look amazing. That dress was made for you, and it will only look better once you get to try on your dress w/alterations. Even in these cell phone pictures I can tell you’re going to wow in this dress!

I did the same thing. I loved my dress when I put it on, then kind of hated it in pictures. Once it came in in my size and I tried it on again in person I loved it again. I try not to obsess over the pictures and instead just remember how I felt in it when I looked in the mirror. These aren’t professional pictures.

For what it’s worth, I actually think you look really, really pretty in the photos you posted, so I wouldn’t even worry about it!
