So, after my second fitting, the more I look at my dress, the more it looks unsophisticated and unflattering to me, rather than simple and elegant. I don’t have the time or money in the budget to get a new dress, and it’s not like I hate it. I’m just second guessing myself… Since there’s nothing I can do to change it, I am hoping that some patented Hive positivity will knock me back to being in love with my dress. Thanks, Hive! (Also, if anyone has any thoughts about whether I should do just earrings or both a necklace and earrings, I’s love to hear thoughts or suggestions)
Here are some pictures of my Pronovias Gabon (taken pre-fittings):

The dress is very pretty on you! The only thing that bothers me is that there is something off about the straps in the front of the dress to me. I think they look wider than the model’s picture.

It’s a gorgeous dress! And you look gorgeous in it!
You should just delete the designer’s picture from your mind. The model is probably 7 feet tall, super thin, well-lit, has all kind of clamps on the back making her dress fit perfectly, and then airbrushed on top of it.

I love it!! but I agree with the straps…they look loose/big…can you get them trimmed down/altered? But it does look very pretty on you 🙂

Wow, MsTerrapin! I really love that dress! You look so happy and pretty and just like a bride!!! If you choose to wear a necklace, I’d keep it pretty light…you don’t want to overwhelm the beautiful detailing of your dress!

@missAsB– The straps and bust were too big on the dress, but have been taken in so that they fit better now
@lindsay and Prncss– thanks!

I love the dress on you – definitely elegant! I think some drop earrings and a light necklace would go well with the dress too.

You look lovely! And happy 🙂 You should set up a photoshoot like that model with a fan and some lighting and have fun in your dress 🙂

Your train is Gorgosity. I love it! Honestly it’s stunning and unique, I think you’d be making a mistake by getting another dress.

Gorgeous! I love the train! I think it’s anything BUT unsophisticated and unflattering! The dress is beautiful on you but what really sets it off is how happy you look in it. You’re going to be glowing so much you could rock a flour sack if you wanted to. 🙂

seriously, it’s great. the dress is great, it look great on you… all is well! I agree that you would be making a mistake in a different dress, this one is perfect! And I vote yes for small earrings, and no to a necklace, but YES to a pearl bracelet!
