You are the one getting married and if you love the dress (obviously since you ordered it), don’t let anyone bully you into changing it. No matter what you pick, someone will hate something you pick, and you will lose your mind trying to please them rather than being true to yourself and what fits who you are.

OMG, how could anyone not like that dress. Its beautiful… a classic! 

I know its hard not try to make everyone happy but (exp. your mom) but remember its one of few times in your life when you can be selfish and not feel bad about it. 

Tell you mom “I know this dress my not be your first choice but i love it and this is whats going to make me happy on MY wedding day.”

Or you can play devils advocate and veto everything she trys on for dresses for your wedding just to show her how it feels.  hehe Tongue out

 

By The Way our wedding are one day apart! Whens the shower?!

I can’t believe she said that! Especially about that dress!! It’s AMAZING. seriously, a total dream dress. Very classic and elegant too so I have no idea why she wouldn’t like it… Just ignore her and wear YOUR dress to YOUR wedding

Your dress is absolutely gorgeous.  Don’t let her spoil anything for you. Hopefully when she sees everybody’s reaction when you walk out, she’ll see how beautiful you are.

NO EXCHANGES!!  Its a classically beautiful dress!!  How can anyone NOT like that dress?!?!

My mother went dress shopping w/ me – the 4th dress I tried on (which is what I ended up w/) was the one she told me I HAD to have!  She was dead set on it – but I wanted to try on other dresses.  So we went to another shop and literally every dress I tried on (like 20) she turned down because she was so set on the other dress.

Hey this is my reception dress!!! I wore it to my wedding on Monday.

I ordered it as a backup with one month before my wedding, somehow it made it in time, finished alterations, and I ended up wearing it because my brother who saw it the day before liked it the most out of the three dresses I had. The other two were Vera Wang and Lazaro. I’m sooo glad I wore it, I felt very pretty and comfortable in it and got lots of compliments. I kinda wish I’d worn that for the ceremony too.

What does your mom not like about it? It’s such a classic dress I don’t see how anyone can “hate” it. I think she just has a problem with you not liking her choices and is being passive aggresive about it trying to make you feel bad.

I went the opposite route of what you’re doing, I wore it with a VERY full crinoline and wore it almost like a ballgown or full a-line, it had more a wow factor for me that way. Here are some pics (and your mom better not hate these Tongue out)

That’s a gorgeous dress and so romantic! I don’t know why your mom does not like it. I know that emotionally it’s not fun for your mom not to love your dress…You should say, “mom, I love this dress. I want to marry Fiance in this dress. I know that you don’t like it, but I hope that you can be happy about for me at least.”

That dress is stunning.  So, it is not what she want, but it is your wedding.  Wear the dress and feel beautiful in it.

Your dress is beautiful. Do not let anyone pressure you to do anything including your mother. I know exactly how you feel. Without me asking, my mama has tried to plan everything about my wedding. Two days after my engagement she bought me a ten dollar yard sale wedding dress that was hideous. I bought my own dress online that I love love love and she hates it. Her comment was it doesn’t look bridal. I also got the comment that it’s your wedding etc. Earlier this week I made the mistake of confiding in her that I was scared I would have to get another dress because I’m not losing weight like I thought I could. Okay honestly I’m lacking confidence. My wedding is in April and need to just lose a little between then. Now, she’s bought me another yard sale dress that is according to her beautiful. I haven’t seen it as I’m out on the road. I asked her who makes the dress and from the information she gave me I think it’s really a prom dress. Thanks mom.
