(Closed) My dress came in and now I’m super insecure about it. Are pickups really so bad?

Your dress is beautiful! And I think the material really softens it up! =) And im sure the day of Steaming will help!

I dont have pick ups on the front of my dress but there are TONS in the back!!

I LOVE your dress!  While pickups are not something I usually prefer, your dress actually gives me dress envy.  SO pretty! Definitely do not let out any of the pickups!

I Love pick ups. My dress as well as my bridesmaids have pick ups. They may be the current fashion statement, but I like that my skirt has texture. If it looks good, it feels good, and you like it, then wear it and be happy! If you look back in 20 years and get a giggle out of pick ups then no harm in a good laugh. Besides, by the time you have grandchildren ready to get married pick ups may be back in fashion and they will be drooling over your dress as being super stylish again. Just worry about how you feel about it now, and for the next 3 months, not if you will like it in 30 years.

I am so glad I found this thread.  I just purchased my dress and it has pickups.  I put it on and loved it.  Then I started reading all the hatred about pickups and seriously started to freak out.  I started questioning my dress decision, started looking at other dresses; I never new that pickups were so unpopular with brides.  Anyway, after reading comments from people on this thread I feel a lot better.  They are all right, it’s my dress, I love it, feel good in it and that is all that matters.  I shouldn’t care what people whom I will never meet thinks of my dress 🙂
