I’m sorry you don’t love your dress but I have to say that I do! I’m totally with your family. It’s just exquiste.  Can you fall in love with it? I don’t know but goodness it’s GORGEOUS!

1. That dress is GORGEOUS

2. I also walked out on my dress the first time (similar lace and tulle skirt to yours actually!). I tried it on for fun becuase it was pretty but it wasn’t what I was looking for. The more I looked at the style I had in mind and the more dresses I tried on I realized that nothing compared to MY dress. I tried on a few more that were similar and then went back to try the favorite on again and just decided that nothing was ever going to beat it. THAT was my dress, and I didn’t really want to take it off. There was no magic moment, no tears, no butterflies and it did have to grow on me but in the end, that was it, I was ready to stop looking.

You look like a doll in this dress, so pretty. I also love what you said about these special women helping you pick it. To me, that’s more important than a tv idea of “it”, and it seems a lot more real. 

You look beautiful and bridal, I say yes to your dress:-)

It’s very beautiufl!  But you have so much time to shop still!  If you have any doubts, keep shopping around and then wait to make your decision until you feel like you’ve exhausted the possibiltiies.  And try on lots of styles too – even things you think you won’t like; you just never know what might look amazing!  Then when you finally make a decision, you’ll know for sure that it’s the right choice.

That dress is stunning! It’s one of the most beautiful I’ve seen, and let me tell you, I’ve looked around a lot.

That said, if you have a lot of time, there’s no harm in looking. You’ll probably try on dresses and think “well, it’s nice but it doesn’t compare to that second dress” and then you’ll know it’s the perfect one. (Speaking from experience. I bought a dress on impulse because it looked so good on me, but I’m second guessing it a bit since I’m one to usually take a long time to make a decision, so I’ve been looking at other dresses just in case but nothing really comes close to my dress.)

Are you a crazy person because that dress is flawless, it’s one of the most beautiful dresses I’ve ever seen. But yes, lemme tell you that I never LOVED loved the dress until literally my wedding day. But I was so happy on my wedding day that I put the dress on and felt more beautiful than I’ve ever felt. So yeah, I kinda learned to love my dress

The dress is stunning!! If you don’t love it, though, I’d say keep looking. Maybe you can try to shop with them again so it can still be sentimental? even if they love it, I’m sure they’d want you to love it equally!

I agree,  the dress is absolutely GORGEOUS and so are YOU! That being said, all that matters is how you feel about it. Do you feel beautiful and comfortable in it? Can you see yourself walking down the aisle in it?

Not everyone gets that freaking out, crying, feeling weak in the knees reaction to a piece of clothing. I sure didn’t. I can’t picture myself EVER being all gah-gah over ANY material object. Maybe thats how you are too?

That dress is GORGEOUS and amazing!!! I need to know the designer / style number! 


Sorry you aren’t feeling it! I think people thing there is going to be this insane moment, but it’s not always like that.

The dress is beautiful & you look stunning in it!

I purchased my dress on 4/13 & the next day I started questioning it because I kept looking at other dresses online wondering if I made the right decision. After that day, I stopped looking at other dresses and I’ve started loving my dress more & more since I didn’t have that original ‘I love this dress’ moment. 

I’m not sure if you’ll start to feel the way I did…but you truly look great in that dress!
