Did they know it was your dress when they said they hated it or did they just think it was a random dress?

Try not to get too upset, I’m sure if they seen you in it properly and they could tell how much you loved it then they wouldn’t have hated it, or at least said it. 

Everyone has different styles, all that matters is you love it! I’ve gone to weddings and if I seen the dress on a hanger I would have hated it but it still looked gorgeous on the brides! 

I think most people have some level of doubt before their wedding, there are so many beautiful dresses! I’m sure this one will be perfect for your day and you’ll feel great in it when you put it on.

That dress is BEAUTIFUL and will look amazing in a castle! So regal! 

There are too many options out there and it’s tough to only get to choose *one* dress. Leading up to our wedding I had insane anxiety over the dress I picked, and actually bought a second (replacement) dress. Guess what? I ended up doubting that one too right before the wedding, but luckily it was too late to get another (lol). I am so happy with the dress I wore, and actually think the first would have been great too. I would say do yourself a favor and try to stay away from photos of other dresses until your wedding. Yours is seriously stunning, post pics post-wedding please!

Your dress is absolutely gorgeous. Don’t let other throw you off! I also really don’t think you need to worry about “matching” your venue. I promise you no one is going to be paying attention to if everything fits a theme or if the dress matches the venue or the flowers etc. All that matters is that you love the dress and feel wonderful in it.

A picture can be totally different than how the dress looks on. I’ve been like “Nah” seeing a stock photo and then loved the dress on a friend.

If you and your fiance loved it, wear it!

It’s a stunning dress! I had doubts too, especially when my sisters weren’t as enthusiastic as my mom …but it was perfect day of when the whole package was put together. ❤️

 The dress is STUNNING and would be amazing in a castle. I picked out my dress alone and sent my mom and sister pics of it plus other dresses to throw them off as well! They both disliked the dress I chose. However, I knew that I loved it so that’s all that matters. Don’t let them bring down your joy!

IF the only reason they don’t like it is because it’s long sleeved and will be too hot, don’t even think about them.

sweetwedd6711 :  Girl!!!!!! I know I’m a stranger online but PLEASE listen to me…DO NOT CHANGE YOUR DRESS!!!! It’s soooo beautiful, I was expecting some boring looking dress but then I scrolled down and saw that and was like “what!!!”…girl forget what your sisters think they probably are jealous lol, this is YOUR day!!! Take it from me, the dress is BAD!!! (In a good way, if you know what I mean).

If you want to change into something more comfortable to dance in for the reception that’s a thought too, that’s what I’m doing. 🙂

If I rejected every ring my sister “ewwed” at, I wouldn’t have a ring. Or I’d be wearing my mom’s ring, which is studded with many dull diamonds and shaped in way that my friend said it resembles a wrestling champion belt. The ring I chose is in production now, but I did get a couple pangs of doubt. ESP when I showed my mom the CAD, and she responded with a photo of a very different ring I had sent her a while ago and, “What about this one?”

Having doubts about a dress, ring, etc is normal. Society puts so much pressure to have everything perfect, but there’s no such thing as perfect of The One. Your choice is what you make of it. 

Part of a loving sisterly relationship is dropping the filter now and then. One person’s “eww” is another person’s treasure. That dress is classy, elegant, and beautiful. I wish I had the figure to pull it off. You went with your gut, and yours is the only one that matters. Perhaps your sisters were expecting you to wear a poofy princess dress. Your dress is more modern princess. It looks like something Kate Middleton would wear.

Your sisters aren’t getting married, YOU are. YOU and YOUR fiance love the dress. This is YOUR wedding. See what I’m getting at? It only matters what YOU think about the dress.

That dress is insanely gorgeous! It’s so unique too with all the lace cutouts. And it will be November – long sleeves will be fine. They have cut outs and that material doesn’t look all that thick.

But seriously – that dress is breath taking!

Well it certainly looks stunning on the model.   Trust your fiancé’s judgement over your sisters
