Oh wow! You perfectly described that dress when you described your wedding – it’s the perfect balance of relaxed and elegant. I definitely think it’s the dress for the day you described and it looks like it was made for you!

Really beautiful and quite unique – I haven’t seen anything like this. You have the perfect figure for it. Your friend was being selfish. Bad day or whatever, she should have been focussing 100% on you!

Is your MoH opposed to to unique/unconventional/unexpected? I’m not.

I think it’s amazing, and perfect for the wedding you describe.

OMG it is stunning! Perfect for your kind of wedding too. Like previous people have said, she was probably just not in the right mood, sorry about that, but I am sure if you talk about it again she will be able to see your happiness about the dress and be more into it

Wow! Simply stunning! I think you have a good perspective on your friend, too. I’m glad you will be checking-in with her. I’m sorry she wasn’t super into dress shopping or supportive, but sometimes people have their own stuff going on. It couldn’t have been the dress, as it is absolutely gorgeous on you and perfect for the wedding you describe. Simply stunning- congratulations!

apresallday :  That is one gorgeous dress and it looks stunning on you!  I normally stay out of the dress threads because more times than not, the bride just wants people to say the dress looks good and many times it’s just meh.  That’s not the case here!

I’m sorry your Maid/Matron of Honor didn’t give you the reaction you were hoping for.  I was in this exact situation a few years ago.  I broke up with my ex Fiance 2 months before our wedding and I went through a really rough time.  One of my friends, who was going to be a bridesmaid, got engaged and when we went looking for dresses for her, I really tried to put on a happy face, but it was so darn hard!  She also tried on a dress that was nearly identical to mine, which was still sitting at my parent’s home, and I had to step out because all those terrible feelings came back.  I apologized to her, and she felt bad for being insensitive (she wasn’t at all, I was just an emotional mess).  My point is you don’t know what can be going on with her, and if she did break up with  aguy she really liked, going dress shopping can be very hard.
