Do you have a photo of the front?  From the back, I think it looks beautiful on you!

Honestly, I think that dress looks really nice on you. It’s so, so pretty and the veil is amazing.

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.

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!
