Dress remorse is totally normal. Totally. But you need to take a step back and look at yourself objectively. You look gorgeous, that dress is gorgeous and you do NOT look huge. I don’t even think that it would be in your health’s interest to lose 15#…I believe that would put you in the underweight category….which can be as dangerous as obese!

Wow I think you look stunning! I had the same moment of panic after purchasing my dress, but I honestly think you look great (and your waist is sooooo tiny)!

@MonAmi: are you serious? you are not huge at all! Such a perfect figure. The dress looks ABSOLUTELY GREAT on you. Don’t think too much, I give you some confidence 🙂

Girl, you are gorgeous! I actually want to ask you what kind of veil you are using – i love that one!

Ladies, you all are so sweet. Thank you all for your input. i’ve always been very insecure about my hips, but you all have relaxed my worries. I have so many more questions, but I will save it for another day and thread.

@pengoala: I really have no idea what type of veil it is! But thank you! I love my veil!! It was prettier than I remembered. I’ll go look at the receipt and bag the veil came in to look for the info.

You’re tiny! I don’t see hips from hell. I see ample chest, tiny waist, trim arms, healthy glow, cute smile, and some LOOOOONG legs under the poof only a bride can wear.
Now, I DID have to find a second dress, and it has made me actually excited about the wedding instead of constantly thinking “why can’t we elope?” So if you happen – HAPPEN – to run across a dress you adore, makes you act like a five year old on a sugar high, and completely changes how you think about your wedding, go for it. If not – you have a dress. It’s rough to find a new one. It’s hard to sell a dress and harder to return it. You’re gorgeous, your dress is flattering, you’re marrying the man of your dreams.

Umm so I’m looking at the dress receipt, and I saw that the dress was going to be an off-white color. Mine is all white. Now I am wondering if I should say anything or just suck it up. Would the off white make that big of a difference? I forget why we all agreed to get off-white. I’m so confused now.
@pengoala: I am not sure what the veil is, but the receitp says it is an LI 5177VL. I googled it and nothing came up. I can ask the ladies at the store. They will for sure know. 🙂

@MonAmi: I would die to have your dress. Seriously, you look absolutley gorgeous. I think every bride has a little remorse right after they purchase their dress and then try to find a reason to justify their remorse….you dont look big AT ALL…period. Simply devine!

Ohmygosh. You are beautiful! You have a figure to die for, and your dress looks a-MAY-zing on you!! I’m not trying to compare, but for the point of reassuring you, I’m a solid 5 inches shorter than you and would be the happiest gal in the world if I could get down to 145 pounds. It’s not really my place to assume anything about your body composition, but just looking at your picture, I really can’t imagine where you’d be able to lose more weight. Your arms are slender and your waist is tiny. Even if, for the sake of argument, your hips were disporportionate to your body frame (I don’t think that’s the case, by the way), the beauty of your dress is that it conceals that. What’s emphsized is your lovely hourglass figure. Plus, you look so happy!
Everyone is her own worst critic, but we’re here to tell you that you look fab. Trust your original decision!
