So, most of us have those moments where we put on a dress and immediately love it, or at least debate whether or not it could work. What dress did you try on that made you think “Aack! Get it off me!” Post a picture! It’ll be fun to see our different taste as one bride’s absolutely not the dress is another’s OMG! The Dress! Some brides look fantastic in dresses I could not wait to get off. So, without further ado, here’s the dress I liked the least on me, David’s Bridal 6280. It’s way too poofy for me, and it’s currently on sale for $349 if anyone loves it!

I’ve seen this on other brides on the Bee and they look beautiful in it. I felt like a marshmallow. The consultant was like “This is a Maggie Sottero” and I remember thinking “Am I supposed to know who the hell she’s talking about?!?” Needless to say I knew nothing about dress designers going in, lol

Oh man.. I never took pictures of the bad ones. Totally should have though!!
Like you said, they weren’t ugly dresses- just not my style or didn’t look good on my body

All the mermaid dresses I’ve tried on–that silhouette makes me look like boa constrictor in the process of digesting an elephant, in a bad way ;).
Also a short dress I tried on. I actually love short wedding dresses, but they’re just not for me. As the very kind lady at the boutique tactfully tried to say, “you don’t really need a dress that makes you look younger.”

@Looopy: I actually like the way this dress looks on you. You look like Venus emerging from the waves!

Now, I have to say – this dress is BEAUTIFUL. But it was definitely not the dress for me.

@StellaK: Haha, thanks! I think it’s the way I’m holding my hands… like I’m trying to kick my way to the surface. I also didn’t like mermaid silhouettes, but I never described their look quite as eloquently as you just did… hahaha!!!

I wish I’d taken a picture of me in this weird ball-gown number. I really did look like a toilet-roll-doily-cover. I also couldn’t walk. Shame, because the dress was GORGEOUS on the rack!
