  • poll: What should I do??

    Quit being so picky.

    "The One" is a myth...just settle.

    Buy any of these (or one) and alter.

    Keep looking!

    theantianxietyreel:  My suggestion…try on completely different dress styles than princess A-Line, etc. Those are the only type you have mostly tried on because I know it’s what you think you want, but you have to give other shapes/styles a try. Be a bit more daring. I say this because you mentioned them “all starting to look the same.” 

    My dress is somewhat what I wanted in that it is backless, but I thought I would go with lace and more detail and the majority of my actual dress is satin with a little lace up top.

    theantianxietyreel:  The dress in part II is AMAZING and ALL of the ones you tried on in part 3 are incredible as well!!! The first dress in part three is AWESOME!

     

    Why didn’t you go with part II?

    banana86:  I hear you on the mermaid. I think that style is very “fad.”  I think in 10 years, people will be able to tell what era it was from lol. Some are really cute though.  There is a dress you tried on that is my favourite. Let me scroll back and I will give you my thoughts..

    That is not matronly!  That neckline is sublime… the lace is beautiful!  You look gorgeous!

    theantianxietyreel:  I have followed this thread all the way through but I don’t think I’ve posted yet.

    FOR GOD’S SAKE THAT IS IT.  That one just up above.  That’s by far and away the best (IMO), and you’ve had some really nice ones.  But this takes the cake.  That’s my favourite.

    CONGRATS!

    Love the sleeves on the current dress! You look gorgeous. You can definitely maintain for 8 months.

    No… NOT matronly at al!!

    Your friend needs her eyes checked. It’s beautiful, feminine and elegant and I love that you wear the dress, it does not wear you. It’s timeless in it’s lovliness. You won’t be cringing when looking at your pictures in 20 years time.

    By The Way I think it looks lovely with your hair down.

    Wow your dress is very different, it’s awesome! Good on you for finding something that’s ‘you’, not something that’s just trendy right now. Will you wear the sleeves for the ceremony and reception or go strapless after the ceremony? I’m really happy to read your update, it’s so nice to see a happy outcome 😊
