This dress looks fantastic on you, I checked out the other post and actually prefer this one over any of the others. But if you won’t be happy with it you need to follow your gut.

I think this one makes you look STUNNING. I also liked number 3 and 5 in the other thread, but this beats them out by far. That being said, maybe it is “too much” for your personality?

I also like the style of the ballgown on you better than the others but maybe this particular dress isn’t you. I think you should try on other ballgowns or A lines and find one that you feel is you.

I agree with him about #5.  It’s my least favorite.

 
I much prefer the more traditional styles of the fit-n-flares.  I think the ball gown he chose is  very trendy and will eventually look dated.  I just don’t like the shredded look on the skirt.
 
I think both silhouettes look great on you, and it’s really a matter of preference/personality.
 
Maybe you could look at other ball gowns and find something with your fiancé’s preferred silhouette but a more classic style?

I think you should buy a dress that you love.  Since you and your fiance have different tastes, maybe it’s time you leave him at home the next time you go dress shopping.  You can tell him that it is bad luck to see the bride, and you really want him to be surprised!

I think the ballgown looks stunning on you! Ballgowns are so classic and I think a lot of guys still have that image in their head when they think of brides. I love fitted gowns as well, but I personally went for a ballgown. I think that it shows off enough of my figure on the top, and I really don’t want everyone staring at the outline of my butt. 😛

Buttt all that being said, you need to feel comfortable in what you’re wearing. I’m sure that he will think you look beautiful in whatever you choose!

I am a HUGE believer that FI’s soooo do NOT belong in wedding dress boutiques! LOL! They just complicate and over-complicate. You need to get something that YOU love. His heart will skip a beat on your wedding day, when your entire look is pulled together, no matter which silouette you choose. But, to answer your question about that dress in particular, I think it’s absolutely GORGEOUS! That dress in particuliar has always been one of my favorites.

@Dell79:  aww girl why did you bring your Fiance dress shopping?!?! That has BAD idea written all over it.

Get WHAT you love. He loves you for YOU, not because of the dress your gonna wear on your wedding day. I do think that dress is beautfiul but I have seen it SOOOO many times on here, my sister even wore that dress for her wedding last summer. Are you going to feel comfortable in that dress on the most important day of your life to come?!

I’d imagine that he’d love you in no matter what you were wearing once he sees you walk down the aisle.

I agree with FI!  I think the ball gown looks beautiful on you.  I think you should try something like the Amsale Tyler or the Watters Austin.  It’s got that great top and a more A line skirt without all the frooff.

All the dresses look great, and you can really pull this one off! However, get what you love – he will love you when he sees you in it!  If you always envisioned yourself in lace then get lace if that’s what you love!  

My Fiance was very adament about what he wanted my dress to be like and I considered his opinion, but ended up getting something very different than what he said he would like.  I know he will love it anyways!

Oh, you look absolutely stunning in this dress! But you should choose the one you want and that makes you feel most beautiful. When he sees you walking down the aisle, his first thought will be “Wow!” not “Aw man, she picked THAT dress?”
