    I think it looks really good on you, and isn’t incompatible with the theme you’re going for. have you tried tying a sash on it? you have that  in all your inspiration pics, maybe that would make you like it a bit more.

    @jbeath1:  Frnakly, I like your dream dresses better. Not a fan of the diagonal and I think its a trend that will look very dated in 2 years time. But then, I am old, boring, and classic! ha ha.

    But that said, I do like your dress because it’s got pretty chiffon and I think it does nice things for your figure.

    I don’t think you look very comfortable in that picture…and you’ve been doubing it ever since you bought it.  I say at least go and look at other dresses.  There are many other ways that you can pay tribute to your Grandma.  I really love the first inspiration picture.  BTW you should totally make a poll.

    i think your dress looks nice on you but if you don’t feel beautiful in it, it may not be the one.  you deserve to feel beautiful on your day.

    I think you look great in that dress but I don’t see the resemblance to your dream dresses. Also the fact that you have been doubting for months is the real problem.. You need to feel like the prettiest girl in the world that day and if you have doubts then you won’t feel that way. Keep looking till you feel s comfortable is my advice!

    I was definitely in your shoes about two months ago. Once I bit the bullet and started looking at new dresses…I found the one almost immediately. And I felt infinitely better.

    I would trust your gut on this one and go looking at other dresses. 4 months is a long time to have just superficial dress regret, you know?

    If you are doubting you are doubting for a reason.  Trust your gut and go look at other dresses.  I think you need to see what else is out there.  It sucks (I also bought a dress and began to doubt it 24 hours later) but it happens and you move on.  It is better to find a dress you love then to look at all the pictures in the future and hate the way you look.

    I like the dress you have, but if you don’t love the dress then I think you should go try on some other dresses. You can commemorate your grandmother in other ways on your wedding day, like maybe having a pink crinoline under your dress (to support breast cancer) or a photo of her attached on a charm to your bouquet.

    I voted add a sash because I think you could find a beautiful, affordable one on etsy and if you add a little crinoline under it, it will poof it up and be close to your inspirationg pictures. I think it’s a lovely dress on you.
