when i went dress shopping i only tried on 2 dresses , 1 that was an absolute no ,,,and the other i fell in love with as i walked by a girl that was trying it on ,,, i tried it on as soon as she took it off,,i started crying because it had dawned on me that i was actually getting married ,,at this point i had no idea what kind of dress my soon to be husband liked or had in mind , he likes bling ,,and we also went to a fashion show for brides and he seemed to not like this kind of bottom to dress , saying it looked like they were cabbige patch kids,,, now i’m affraid i made the wrong choice, please can i get some honest comments on how i actually look in the dress ,,, and am thinkin of perhaps haveing the store add on some bling and a bit of red perhaps,, i have already put money down on the dress so i’m unsure of what i should do ,,,,

I think it looks really nice on you. You can always up the bling factor with accessories or some sparkle in your veil.
Plus, at the bridal show, he was seeing dresses on people he didn’t really care about. I have a feeling that he won’t care what you’re wearing on the big day, he’ll be awestruck. What matters most is that you like the dress and you’re comfortable in it and you like the way you look.

May I ask, what is the dark line across the dress? Is it a type of thin belt/sash sewn into the gown?

Honestly I think it looks absolutely beautiful on you! It’s different without being wacky, and it really shows off your figure. If you want more bling I’m sure they can do it – I don;t know if a belt would be appropriate with that waistline, but here’s the one I’m getting (and love) – http://www.ivyandaster.com/collections/sashes/products/glamorama

The shape of the dress looks great on you – but is that thin red ribbon attached?
If not – that has to go. Its too thin, and its not placed right. You could get a nice, thick beaded belt that hits the right spot on your waist. Your fiance will probably not even notice the pick-up skirt on your wedding day, so don’t worry about that.
Most importantly, lf you dont LOVE it, thats the bigger issue.

You can add bling with a belt, in your hair piece, or I’m sure the shop will have some ideas.
My husband didn’t care and claimed “all wedding dresses look the same.” I know not all men are like that, but I’m confident that your fiance will be looking more at you than your dress on your wedding day and I think sometimes we worry too much what they’ll think. You look gorgeous in this dress! Personally I think the wedding dress is more for us than for our partners =)

I think the dress looks great on you. You could bling-it-up with a belt or something? I think there’s definitely potential to work with it!

Hm I don’t really like the placement of that red ribbon, it’s too low. Otherwise, the dress looks great on you and if you love it that’s all that matters! I would get a red blingy sash and put it up higher at your natural waist or right under the bust, but I think the dress looks lovely and just needs a little pop of bling! What about something like this?

The dress looks great on you. I am personally not a fan of pickups- but thats just me. What is important is that you love your dress! If you want bling, I agree with PPs. Nix the red belt completely (either way) and I’d use a rhinestone sash under your bust.

Honestly, your dress is everything I hate about wedding dresses. It looks out of fashion, I hate the pleating at the bust, the red(?) thin belt, the pick-ups are the worst kind. Nothing about it is right. You have tatoos and a killer hair style, you should be in more of a killer, cutting edge dress! Does this dress at all fit your personality?

I think it’s a pretty dress! But if you don’t absolutely LOVE it, find something else. You can always add a bad arse sash to it, to add the bling effect! Also, you can wear a veil with swarovski crystals! I bought my reception dress on ideeli.com, not sure if they are still having a bridal sale, but there were beautiful dresses on there for way lesssssss. I got my reception dress for $100 and the original cost was over 1k.
My only real advice is to not drive yourself crazy over this. I had dress regret, hence the reason why I bought a second dress. But I tried on my first dress again and fell absolutely in love again.
Sure there are plenty of beautiful extravagant dresses, but the only thing that matters is how beautiful you feel in it.
Check out the classifieds as well, I’ve seen awesome things on there!!
