She chose this one.  She saw it online and liked it for a while but when we went in to look she saw another one and decided to go with that without even trying this one on.  There was buyers remorse when looking at the pics that evening.  We went back the next day and this time also sent pics to all sisters on both dresses.  Everyone liked this one better and she liked this one better as soon as she tried it on.

Interestingly, everyone in the store liked this one too.  For the first dress the person gave a long speech about the most important thing is what the bride thinks on her special day and she should block out whate everyone thinks and choose for herself.  LOL  Nobody gave compliments or anything.

When we went back they all came by and said they loved this dress and it was beautiful and even some customers said they loved it.  This time the same sales persomn said it was beautiful.  She said the other one was more traditional and this one is more modern.  

So that’s the code.  If you hear a long speech, your seller doesn’t like it.  LOL  If she thinks it’s beautiful she’ll just tell you.  Why not?  

And for others they don’t want to hurt feelings either so a good strategy she found was to have them choose (e.g. 1 or 2).  That was most helpful.

I don’t know that l would care at all what the vendor thought, though would listen to any suggestions. But too many opinions is never a good idea to my mind, whether they are there or are being canvassed. One or maybe two trusted people, like a sister and that’s be it in the unlikely event of my buying another wedding dress lol

Ooh here is mine! Honestly, I was very anxious about choosing a dress like this because I prefer to hide my body but I thought I wanted the whole flowy thing and I tried on so many and they all looked awful on me so I just said feck it and tried something different 🙂

I’m really glad I did! I got it taken in but I think it might still need a wee bit of altering. Dress is Everpretty and the veil is JJ’s House. The veil was straight out of the package here so I know it’s VERY crinkly, sorry! 

Wedding is….. June 2021! Can’t WAIT! 

 

PS excuse the horrible backdrop, my house is small 😅

@Waytooexcited:  Wow you are gorgeous and that dress is amazing and complements you amazingly.  You have nothing to be anxious about. Also, you remind me of Eowyn from the Lord of the Rings movies–who is beautiful and a badass.

I bought two dresses- the first was the crochet bridal dress by self portrait and the second was from Etsy. The reason this happened was because our plans drastically changed from a normal wedding in a barn/industrial venue to an intimate Scottish elopement (isle of Skye, September 2021). 
I knew I wanted a more ethereal and romantic dress rather than a super modern, minimalist gown. The dress from Etsy is backless and has a high neck, voluminous sleeves and long train (which got gloriously muddy during the day). The dress was a bargain (around £300 plus some modest alterations).  I wore the self portrait dress in the evening- didn’t feel like dragging mud and sheep poo through a restaurant!)

@Waytooexcited:  HOLY COW this is GORGEOUS!! I LOVE it! This is exactly what i wanted too, simple and elegant, no lace, no beading (on the front, the back i didnt care). I went with a different dress but I probably would have picked this if i saw it!! I just posted mine on the “show me your casual full length dress”

@bpositive:  I just went and had a peep at it-your dress is epic, I would also wear something like yours but I wanted at least a little cover on my arms! Yours is a braver choice 😅❤️ it’s nice too that we can fully see your sleeve with it, the shape of the straps makes a nice feature of the tattoos and the simplicity of the dress compliments it so well
