@sunny_days:  Your Mom can go suck an egg. lol. That is a lovely dress and not common (I have never seen it before!) Keep your dress, enjoy your day and pray that your mother grows up one of these days.

Your dress is beautiful and looks beautiful on you, it looks like it fits perfectly,it is definitely not cheap looking or childish, I think it is beautiful, elegant and timeless, I love the little cap sleeve it looks really delicate.  I am sorry about the situation with your mum mine is the same but on other things in the wedding.  You have made the right dress choice it is your day X

@sunny_days:  WOW. I adore your dress so so much and would love something just like it. I’m sorry that your mum is giving you a hard time. In reality though it is your choice. It’s YOU wearing a dress on YOUR wedding day.

This is one of my favorite dresses I’ve seen so far. It reminds me of Snow White.

Your dress is perfect! I think you made the right choice by buying what you wanted. She was making the decision all about herself and being selfish, when she should have been supportive and happy for you! Don’t regret it, it’s beautiful!

That dress was MADE for you. It is stunning and so, so beautiful. Plus it’s WHITE, just like mum wanted.

Honestly, your mother is acting like a 2 year old and throwing a tantrum at the moment. Do NOT give into that child. What do you do when children throw tantrums? You ignore them until they stop. I would honestly stop talking to her about the wedding completely and wait for her to ask questions. She no longer deserves to be included. How many parents say “I just want her (my child) to be happy, that’s all I ask”. She is clearly not following this line of thought.

Your dress is gorgeous! It looks beautiful on you!

remember it is your day.. The most important thing is that you feel comfortable and happy on your day..

Your mom will come around.. I don’t think she’ll still be that mad when she sees her daughter walking down the aisle.. She’ll just feel happy and pround even if you were in pyjamas! Lol

Maybe she is just trying to have her way or prove herself as much as she can before the wedding..

If you are happy with your choices then forget about everything else.. She’ll come around don’t worry:)

Best of luck! 🙂

@sunny_days:  I think it looks wonderful on you! It’s YOUR wedding & if you don’t go with what you want & rather what makes everyone else (in this case mum & co) happy… You WILL have regrets… I had hiccups too with what people thought my wedding should be like or should have included! End of the day IT’S YOUR WEDDING!!!! You are doing this for love, not to make others happy! It’s you & your man 🙂 CONGRATS By The Way 🙂

Stunning dress, love the cap sleeves with the sweetheart neck.

I have a complicated mum too.. my hairdresser said it well after one incident: “Parents. Sometimes they just need to be kneecapped.”

I hope things with your mum improve. In the meantime, enjoy the love and support from your Fiance, dad, and the others around you.

I love love lOVe that dress.  I understand that right now it reminds you a little of the drama your mom brought to the experience, but that will fade. You should wear the dress you really want and she can suck on it. Sorry, but she sounds very difficult in general, and if I were you i’d keep her as far away as possible. Weddings have enough stress without the addition of mom-drama!!


You look gorgeous in that dress!

I adore that dress and you look stunning in it. Your mum is cray-cray, on this matter anyway.

Can you post a photo of the other dress so we can say how much better your dress is?

@sunny_days:  I think it’s a lovely dress! I’m not normally a fan of ballgowns, but I think it looks lovely, classy and elegant on you!


I think at this point your mum is being really unreasonable, and rather than indulging her in her temper tantrum, any time she makes a comment like “you don’t care what I think anyway”, just go “right, okay, never mind then” and move on.
