I am wondering if anyone has gone through this already…when I have shown people or explained to people what my dress looks like (although I have shown minimal people since I want it to be a surprise) I have been met with negative feedback. I get that not every style is for every person, but just because its not what someone else would choose doesn’t mean it’s not right for me. It’s been causing me to rethink my dress!
My dress is a little on the trendy side, the Pronovias Benicarlo. It is a dropped waist with a sweetheart neckline (feathers around on the neckline) with a ruffled skirt and corset back. Is it a bad choice??

I think your dress is super cute and unique in a good way! It may be a hard design to accurately describe with words, so maybe that has confused people a little bit. But it is beautiful!

I think it’s a fantiastic dress. People who really care about you will think you look good in anything.

Don’t let other people’s reactions get you down! My dress has a similar skirt and on another thread I saw someone say it looked like vulvas (ouch!). I’m still wearing it because I love it and I don’t think it looks that way at all. Plus I’ve seen professional photos of it and it looks fantastic. I love your dress on you! I think you made the right choice!

Dont’ doubt your dress because others are insensitive enough to express their personal displeasure with your choice. I too have had negative feedback about my dress but, I love it. It was important to me not to look like just another cookie cutter bride – indistinguishable from the rest. If this is the dress that YOU love, then the people in your life should support you on your decision. This is YOUR wedding, not theirs and you are not asking them to wear it!

I think your dress is probably just hard to describe without it sounding like a hot mess, but it’s very pretty. I’d just stop telling anyone.

The first time I saw you post this dress, I was stunned by how pretty it is! A lot of people don’t like my dress, but as long as I like it thats all that matters. In the end, you’re the one wearing it, so its your choice!

The dress isn’t my style, but the fit on you is stunning! If you love the dress, that’s all that matters!

@abbie017: Took the words right out of my mouth.
Everyone has different styles. This dress looks fantastic on you. Good choice!

It honestly doesn’t matter what other people think about it. If I were you I wouldn’t tell anyone any details about it; people have always got something negative to say.

I think it looks great from that picture… what’s throwing me off about your description that you give people is feathers around the neckline. When I read that I was prepping for some awful feathery in your face sort of crazy and trendy dress so maybe that’s whats throwing people off.
