This isn’t my dress (though I did love it, it was double my budget!), but for comparisons’ sake:

@eocenia:  Haha yeah, that may have happened. After our wedding day, I went back and showed him that model photo and said “Do you remember what you said about this?”  And he laughed. πŸ˜›

I love the fact that most of these dresses look better on a real person than on the model. I bet that’s why they put the models in weird poses! Smile

 

Here’s mine:

@pengoala:  I definitely did that with my Fiance, and he said he didn’t like it.  I said “tough shit, you’ll like it because I’m wearing it on our wedding day!”  I know he’ll forget all about that on the day, and he probably wouldn’t even recognize it anyway, because he’s a guy! Smile

Wow! Everyone looks amazing! Just goes to show that you HAVE to try on dresses even if the professional model photo doesn’t inspirer you!

I have a fitting (hopefully my final) tomorrow, so I can post my pics then, because I would have never tried my dress on based on the model photos. I am slender, but have a very boyish figure and would have never imagined myself in my forming fitted gown! But I love it and it makes me look like I curves!

@eocenia: unfortunately shoes is not an option, Fiance is only 4 inches taller than me! haha. i think it will be ok though, she showed me how she would do the hem to make sure it still fell nicely. i’m sure ll update pics one everything is altered.

@eocenia:  yeah for some reason the Martina models all look weird. And the stock photo of my dress looks awful! The skirt looks all stiff and yucky. I would never have picked my dress based solely on that picture. I don’t even like the way the skirt looks in the picture of me in it, which is why I always post the picture of it hanging on my bed (it really shows the softness of the skirt)

@confettiegg2000:  UGH. That dress is hideous on the model! You look amazing! The difference is uncanny! 

@mrswestcoast:  “Y’all look way better than the models! Just sayin :)”

That’s because everyone wants to be in their dresses! It’s THE gown we choose instead of getting paid to look bored in it. πŸ˜›
