Hello ladies! I need some major opinions. First off- let me say that I am a very indecisive person. That being said, I may or may not be having dress regret :(. I love the dress…I’m just not sure I love it on me. Theres just something about it….I don’t know. Anyways, I brought it. It’s mine. I’ll make it work. So here is where you guys come in! I”m going to post 2 pics (neither of these are me in the dress, so I apoligize if you happen to be one of the photos 😉 ) I like the pic with the ribbon at the waist. I think it’s fun and flirty, and gives it the little something I feel its missing. My mom on the other hand gave it a firm “Nope. Don’t like it.” MOH/sister says “its ok.” I know…I’m pitiful. Its just a stinkin ribbon right?! Well did I also mention I’m a perfectionist? 🙂 Advice appreciated in advace! [attachment=1529171,192858] [attachment=1529171,192859]

I didn’t see any photos but I understand your frustration. I’m indesicive too and easily swayed by others opinions. I’d try both, don’t ask your family for opinions and then sleep on it. Then thing about your wedding and see which option pops into your head. Which one fits you, not your mom or your sister. In the end, just remember like you its just a stinkin ribbon and once you decide it won’t seem like such a mountain of a decision. just one of many many little decisions that build up to your wedding. (This is a do as say not as I do post because I’d be spinning like you)

If you love the ribbons, do it! As the previous posters said, its about what you love, not your mom or sista! 🙂

I don’t like it very much without the ribbon. With the ribbon, it’s really cute.

The ribbon really gives you a defined waistline and looks more proportional on your figure!

I like the ribbon. It adds some visual interest, and like PPs said defines your waist.
I think if you don’t, you’ll regret caving in. You are the one wearing this dress on your wedding day, not mom or sister.

Love the ribbon, like previously stated it gives you a defined waistline and is really flattering. The dress is beautiful either way but I think the ribbon really looks amazing on you 🙂

Love the ribbon, and it makes your waist look even smaller!

Before reading your post i looked at both pics and automatically loved the one with the ribbon! It is much more flattering and gives you a waist.
If your mom doesn’t like the ribbon is there a way you can shop around and find one (maybe another style or fabric) that you both like!?

I like having something at your waist because it really defines your waist. but i’m not a fan of that particular ribbon. the dress already has so much going on that the addition of the bow really makes it too much. plus i think the style doesn’t match the rest of the dress. I would try to find a sash/belt that doesn’t have any loose hanging pieces.

I agree with your mom on the firm no but I am in the minority…lol I like the top picture much better.
The other thing is in the top picture, the friz in the skirt starts a little lower…I think it looks better that way.
