Since August me and my fiance have been wanting to get married and we finally decided with or without money we’re doing it. We orginally just wanted a small thing nothing fancy but of course telling the parents they wanted it all. And now I’m constantly being asked questions about things I hadn’t even planned for and trying to make them happen to make everyone happy.
The only thing I looked forward too, was having a beautiful wedding dress because that was the only part that really mattered to me if i was going ot have to go thru with the whole thing. But then the day came for my appointment and I realized there was no time to get the dress of my dreams and apparently also hard to find a dress that would fit to try on. I know I’m overweight but I didn’t think my weight would really keep from trying on some of the real dresses I liked. So in the end I had to settle to try on what fit and because of this, nothing made me feel beautiful nothing is what I wanted. So after an hour of trying on dresses and feeling worse about myself I settled for a dress that my mom and sister smile. i told myself I orginally didn’t want to wear anything special so I might as well just go with something they really liked. But having to settle on the one thing I was looking forward to is making me miserable, and just wish everything was done with. And I’m trying to not care, trying to say it doesn’t matter, but it does.
The dress was off the rack and so far i’ve only paid $200 for it, which I will lose if I decide to cancel it. But my wedding is Dec. 15 of this year and I don’t know if there is really time to find anything else. Also, my mom doesn’t know how I feel about hating the dress and I don’t want to disappoint her seeing as how she really loved the dress I currently have waiting for me.

u look beautiful, it flatters ur figure ur rack isnt bleeding out u look soo sophisticated elegant and simply beautiful… look in the mirror again sometimes it takes that second look before u actually feel it, maybe adding a sash or another element will give it the spark your looking for… if worse comes to worse try to resell it

I think it’s pretty (and could easily be dressed up with a beautiful sash if you’re into that sort of thing), but what’s important is what YOU think. Since the dress is the one thing you really cared about, I feel like you should look for something else that you love.
It is a bit late to order a dress at a regular boutique, but somewhere that will let you walk out with a dress right now would work! For example, someplace that has sample sales or Vows (bridepower.com) or some online stores.

Thank you all. One thing that isn’t really getting seen thru the picutres is how much bead work there is on this dress. Mainly because I had to take a picture of the picture with my phone.
The whole dress is covered in beading. And I have been told to accessorize but I’m not quite sure how to do when if feels like there is already so much going on with the dress.
Here is a link to the dress from the designers website.

Don’t think I’m saying this just because you wrote that you had trouble finding it and you settled, but that dress is so beautiful on you. It looks like it was made for you and accentuates your body. It’s lovely.

Like PPs said, you look gorgeous!!! Your curves are amazing in that dress! But…. that being said, if you don’t feel comfortable, look for something else. This is your day and you should feel beautiful!!!See if you can try on gowns in the store and purchase something Preowned. That will save you loads of money plus you’ll have it fairly quickly! Good luck!

Wow I really love the dress. I understand your concerns and feelings (I’ve had them too) but you really look beautiful!

I think it’s a beautiful dress!
If you really don’t like it, you’ll probably have to buy another one off the rack because there won’t be time to order it! But really, this one is very pretty!

Just another voice echoing the same opinion – that dress looks bangin’ on you!!! You look beautiful and truly, there is nothing I would change about it.
However you should FEEL good on your wedding. If you don’t feel as hot as you look (and you look amazing!!) in that dress, maybe look at other options. What would you change about it? What kind of dress did you want?
Re: timing, that does make things complicated. J. Crew orders dresses and they come in within a week. I dont’ know if you like any of their dresses, but it’s an option!
