@kris325:  I do not think you look pregnant!!! Some people are just ignorant and think that if someone’s doesn’t have a perfectly flat stomach, they MUST be pregnant. Ignore them and their rude comments.

Firstly, AWESOME JOB ON THE WEIGHTLOSS! Secondly, you look stunning, and not remotely pregnant, she’s just mega rude. And thirdly, Can you think back to before you lost the weight? Imagine how amazed you’d be at how awesome you look now, had you known then that you’d be this thin on your wedding day?

Those people can shove their unwelcome speculations up where the sun don’t shine.  Some people.

I think you look fabulous!

I don’t think you look pregnant. Further, I don’t care what you looked like, that was not a nice thing to say and not the time or the place! I’m sorry that your relative felt the need to cut you down. I think you look absolutely stunning though!

What in the hell makes someone think it’s okay to say something like that?!  So offensive. You look great. I am 5’7″, 125 lbs and given the right posture and meal, I can easily look 7 months pregnant. It happens to the best of us, but if anyone calls me out at my wedding I will not be as classy as you were about it.

I was expecting something a lot different from what your pictures look like. You are beautiful. You do not look pregnant. You look like a woman with a womanly figure. Marilyn Monroe, Christina Hendricks, etc. I might be tempted to send a card to Rude Person, saying you are sorry that they lost money while betting that you were pregnant, but thank them for sharing with you that they need lessons in socializing with human beings, and accompany it with photos of said gorgeous women listed above, as well as a book on things not to say to a bride. 🙂

And I should add, I do not think you look pregnant in any of the photos you posted…. even the one that you thought proved that you looked pregnant.

That is seriously awful. I would have told her she’s nothing but an overgrown mean girl and should be ashamed of herself. And then of course she would turn it around and say you’re overreacting. You can’t win with some people. I think you looked great so try not to let one rude person ruin your day!

You’ve lost 90lbs and your godmother still said that? Tell her to learn some manners ASAP 

 

honestly? People gossip during weddings. They just do, it’s not worth your energy to even think about it. Maybe she told you because she was hoping you’d let her in on a “secret” but there’s no excuse for rudeness.

 

Normally, I’d say be the better person and ignore her but in this case, I’d be tempted to slip an extra note into her thank you card and say something like how her comments made you feel bad after all the effort you’ve put into losing weight…really guilt trip her on it.

Agree with the PP here, you look beautiful, not pregnant, and man is she rude for saying that!! 

 

I was in a similar situation, lost almost 100 pounds as a teenager, and was left with a lot of loose skin and stretchmarks and weird fat pockets…. I don’t know how many times I was asked if I was pregnant, maybe 5 at least, typically by mean drunk boys in college. It was the ultimate insult for sure, after working so hard to loose the weight in the first place. I don’t think people know how hurtful it is to say that to someone, or how long that insult resonates in someones head. I have had surgery since, but looking back on the pictures from college, I looked amazing! I can’t believe I let some dumb drunk losers make me feel otherwise.

All I see is a normal, womanly body. You looked beautiful. It would certainly get to me, too. It wasn’t my wedding, but, a friend made remarks while were were hanging out about the shape of my stomach. It made me very self-concious and embarassed. I’ve even had people who don’t know me in real life say shit to me about wearing a bikini because they thought my hipbones (which are set very high and end above my navel…odd right?) were flab in pictures. How rude…

You don’t look pregnant. In all honesty you look NORMAL. By that I mean that even some of the skinniest girls on the planet have a “pouch” in that style of dress. I think it was very rude of those guests to be betting on a pregnancy.

You look beautiful in your dress! I definitely don’t think you look pregnant at all- can’t believe anyone would have thought that.
