@jennyinstereo:  I like the dress you bought better than the other dress in the picture you posted of yourself.

I think you will look great, and after alterations it’ll really start to feel like your dress.

Not sure if this will help or not, but try to put things into perspective. You’ll be wearing this dress for a FEW HOURS. You spent within your budget and you found something that looks good. What more can you really ask for? Your guests will see a beautiful bride. They won’t fixate on all the small details the way you are. You’re marrying the guy of your dreams and he will love you in any dress. That’s what matters.

I love the dress you bought!  I like it more than the other one you posted.  I also think your jewelry will be great with it.


Where did you get your necklace??  I love it!

@jennyinstereo:  The dress you bought is beautiful and I am sure you look great in it! I think once you get the dress and play around with some embellishments like a belt or sash, you will feel a lot better about it! And the jewelry you are looking at would look amazing with your dress! I also agree with PPs that once you modify it to how you want it (sash or belt, jewelry, veil) and get it altered to fit you perfectly, your outlook will change! 🙂

I’m sorry you’re feeling sad….but being honest I like your purchased dress more than the dream dress!  It’s lovely!  I think if you give yourself some time to let go of the dream dress, you’ll then have the chance to fall in love with your real dress.  And…..it’s harsh to say but it’s only a dress.  In either of these you will look gorgeous so (in my opinion) it’s not worth breaking the budget.  

I ran into a similar situation during my planning, and luckily the line that did my dream dress had a less expensive line that had a very simiar dress.  At first I was a bit bummed, but then I really loved my dress and had no regrets, and the extra money went to other things I really wanted.

are you keeping the sash a lighter color? i think if the sash is darker it draws attention to your waist and it looks harsher. a more natural nude or lights color wont have that negative widening look. ive always been told to look slimmer avoid horizontal lines/ patterns. to look taller use paralell lines/ patterns
