    i think so!!  love the beading at the top.  the question is – do YOU think it’s a wow dress?  i had to go get my dress witout my mom and sent her a photo text and didn’t get the “wow” from her either – but i still can’t get it out of my mind, and can’t wait til my first fitting in a few weeks!

    so keep in mind – photos look MUCH different than being there in person.  if you go with your crew and still have no “wow”, and YOU feel that way too, then maybe you need to switch up the dress.  but if you feel amazing in it and don’t want to take it off – then it’s meant to be!!

    Don’t worry! Once you get the dress steamed, altered, and with the right crinoline underneath – it will be STUNNING! My friends weren’t over the moon about my dress-try-on photos, either, but everyone loved my dress once they saw it all finished at the wedding.

    That dress is stunning. I tried on A LOT of dresses with other people and got so frustrated with their opinions that I went by myself and found my dress. It is YOUR dress, shouldn’t matter what they think. You fell in love with it for a reason. I’m glad I picked it out on my own, because I knew I was the one and only opinion that decided on it and mine was the one and only opinion that mattered! When I brought people back to show them after I had decided, I didn’t ask them what the thought – I just said this is the one. And I can’t wait to wear my dress!!!!

    I think your dress is beautiful! I didnt get the “wow” reaction from my family or friends either, but you just have to go with what your heart says. It looks gorgeous on you.

    That is such a WOW dress!  I bet your family/friends will feel the same way once it’s altered, steamed, etc. etc.

    Like one of the girls above say, without your friend’s/family’s opinions in your ear, what do YOU think about it?  That’s most important 🙂

    That is an amazing dress and it looks amazing on you!  I LOVE it!   I also love how it doesn’t look like “every other gown”.  You rock it!!  🙂

    This looks great on you and I have not seen many dresses like it!  Maybe your friends would love it more in person or they weren’t surprised you went with something like that.  It’s about what you like and are happy in, not what they want you to be in!!

    WOW!  It certainly got a wow from me.  I love the geometrical beading and I LOVE that it doesn’t look like every other dress in the store.  It looks great on it in the picture so I can just imagine how awesome it will be in person.  If you love it, go with it.

     

    PS.  who is the designer?

    Let me just start off by saying, I have seen that dress in person and the picture you have on here does not do it justice. Not that that is your fault, pictures usually dont. It was on a maniquin (sp?) when I went dress shopping. My mom and bestfriend begged me to try that dress on over and over again. I never did because its just not my style. I am short and full figured so I dont think it would look great on me, but it looks awesome on you. That is a wow dress and it is very, very beautiful in person. I think you picked a great dress. Maybe your friends just are not getting the full idea of the dress because the picture defenetly dulls in comparison to the actual dress. I wouldnt worry about it.
