Aaaw I am sorry you feel that way about your photos, I know I hate a large number of mine because of the back fat rolls and the close ups of my face are hideous, but luckily I have a few that I love and these are the ones I have on my wall and show my friends. do you love any of the photos? Like you said, they aren’t everything but still totally sux to feel that way ๐Ÿ™

I totally understand how you feel. I am afraid of my wedding photos, because I really just never look as good in photos as I feel that I do when I look in a mirror. I think what you are feeling is valid.

That said, I am sure you looked gorgeous on your wedding day!! Really. Is it possible you are being too hard on yourself? (I am very guilty of this myself!)

@ConnecticutDryad:  Hey!  I know it is hard to believe, but I guarantee that no one else “saw you that way.”  I bet everyone saw a gorgeous, beaming bride.  We are always WAY harder on ourselves than anyone else.  Not a little, either, a LOT.  I am serious, no one else was looking at you for your flaws ๐Ÿ™‚

If you are willing, I’d love if you would share a few pictures with us.  Sometimes you just need an objective, outsider look!

@ConnecticutDryad:  I’m that way, too. I have to be very, very, very conscious of my chin in pictures. I was the heaviest I’ve ever been on the day that I got married, but ya know what? I was fat when my hubbie met me, I was fat when we got engaged, and damn I was fat at my wedding. My husband fell in love with me while I was “fat” and he thought I looked amazing.

I’m sorry you feel this way…..I’m right there with you. I looked at mine and cried. My face is chubby, i’ve always hated my teeth, and it was a breezy day so all of the outside shots have my hair all over the place ๐Ÿ™ we can be miserable together.

I am afraid of this as well, my wedding is about 10 weeks away, just started working my butt off to lose as much weight as possible with eating right and exercise before my wedding gown alterations which are 5 weeks away. I’m the heaviest I have ever been and I hate my double chin.

We are our most critic, I’m sure you look beautiful!

HUGS! I can totally empathize with you on this (in other photos, i’m not married yet) and it is so hard to see ourselves as beautiful but I bet you truly were a gorgeous bride!
