@sleepyhead22:  If YOU like it that’s all that matters. I think it’s definitely “a lot of dress” but that’s what you were going for…she could have been more tactful about it.

I know what you mean- the one negative comment always sticks with me too! Ignore her, you look really beautiful

If only you had responded with “Wow, that’s a lot of rude!”

Don’t let her comment get you down, you have a gorgeous dress which you love, so that’s all that matters.

I wouldn’t think too much of it – it’s probably the kind of tactless and thoughtless comment I myself might have made before I understood how incredibly overwhelming and stressful this whole process is! Don’t let her get to you – you love your dress (and it is the best of both worlds!), but like everything else in your wedding you won’t be able to please everyone, so it’s best to just block them out and do things your own way πŸ™‚

A totally gorgeous dress! A wedding dress is special; it’s not like a normal dress!

I think the side photo is “a lot of dress” but from what it sounds like, I think thats what you were aiming for in a sense right? I would have just responded with “a lot of dress?! awesome! thats exactly what I was going for! sweet!” tell her yes you can remove a few of the layers of tulle and then you will give them to her so she can shove em in her mouth to keep her from saying such dumb things.

@sleepyhead22:  Ummm I think that is a pretty typical sized skirt.  I certianly wouldn’t see it and go “whoa! that’s a big dress!” and I’ve only been to about a dozen weddings.

It is a lot of dress.

If you like it, keep it.
