I def. think all of you look better than the models. I also think it’s because it’s the dress! It makes you happy, and smile and glow. The model puts on thousands of dresses, it’s not special to her, so…they look sad, haha. I also think some of them look sickly thin.

OOOO I LOVE THE IDEA OF THIS PAGE!!! Seriously it is so much nicer to be able to see the gown on someone else! The models NEVER do any justice for the gowns!!! Here is ONE of my gowns I am deciding on! I have gotten mixed votes on it from friends and family….it is still in the maybe pile! 🙂 My mom doesn`t like it :(

We definitely have some gorgeous bees!  and real life is way better than staged up photos and lighting.

We may not have somebody airbrushing us, but I think the bees here look absolutely amazing!

I can’t wait until a few more months pass and I can add to this thread!

You are all so pretty!

Bought mine for 470$… it’s a Mori Lee.  This is the biggest savings since my venue and catering fees are through the roof!  I love it.  And I only tried on 5 dresses.  I like mine better than the model  … it’s hard to say though b/c I like the pictures of the model too:)  we shall see on january 16th what the final verdict is!

I honestly have to say that I think the dresses look better on the models, because they show the detail and are just photographed better. In person they never seem as beautiful as in the perfectly lighted and touched up photos. Heres mine!

Yay!  Everyone looks awesome in their dresses!  Here’s my dress ad/real person comparison.  Please keep in mind my dress is unaltered and unpressed. "Wink"

What a fantastic thread! The difference between the actual dress on a "real" person and the model is striking. What I love most is how thrilled most of the brides look- you can tell it’s "the" dress.

My dress (Melissa Sweet Reverie Eze) has two pics on the website, one from the runway show, and one from the ad campaign. I didn’t really like the dress from the pics and overlooked it while I was searching for dresses online. Once I tried it on, however, I knew that I had found the perfect dress for me!

I was just telling Fiance yesterday that I wish they had these pictures in magazines. I think it would save a ton of time if they did.

Mine!
