Can you post some pictures here?  Sometimes you think that you didn’t look great in the pictures but others might think differently!

I think posting a pic on here will help you get over this fear. I am sure you looked amazing. Some people just dont take good pictures though…

Post and let us tell you how amazing you look! ๐Ÿ˜€

There is no such thing as an ugly bride. You are ebing your own worst enemy, your own worst critic. I bet everyone else thinks you looked stunning.

I bet you looked fantastic but I do understand. I have a hard time looking at my pictures too. I decided against making a quality photo album because of it.

@freckles5672:  I totally understand how you are feeling.  We actually have an inside joke about how unphotogenic  I am.  (My beauty can’t be captured on film, lol)  But you know, people are always telling me that I am beautiful.  Some people don’t photograph well, maybe you are one of them too.   You are beautiful whether or not you photograph well.  We should have a thread where we are post our least photogenic pictures, it might offer some perspective.

I’m so sorry you are feeling this way, but I just checked your dress pics out and think you are just *lovely*. If you look at recaps as much as I do, you know that the bees come in every height, size, shape, etc., and to me they are all breathtaking – who doesn’t look good in a big white dress with a ton of make-up on ? I am a wrinkly, baggy, glasses-wearing, braces-on-teeth , hair-graying, scarred lady of 47 and even *I* looked pretty darn good on The Day. Post a pic and let us tell you how amazing you look!

Oh, @freckles5672: , I’m so sorry that you feel this way. I, too, had a peek at your previous posts showing your dress options and I think you look radiant and so happy, that it would be impossible for you to look anything but beautiful on your wedding day.

I think many of us are hard on ourselves when we look at our own photos – we are our own worst enemies! When you look at your own photos, you may see all the bad things, but honestly, when other people look at them, they will notice things like your smile, your dress/veil/flowers etc. They will not be looking at those things that make you feel unhappy!

When I looked at my photos, the first thing I noticed was my arms, but other people probably wouldn’t look twice at that.

If people are pressuring you to post photos, I would pick the ones that contained detail shots of the wedding and perhaps one or two from far away. That should keep people quiet for a while at least!

I just looks at some pics you posted in your previous posts, and I see no possible way that you could not look beautiful.  I am so tough on myself, too.  We really are our own worst critics.  I am sure you look wonderful.  I would love to see some of yours, because I’m sure you look far better than you are giving youself credit for.  Cheer up! ๐Ÿ™‚

Ok let me just say that you are extremely pretty, to the point where my ego would be damaged standing near you, add to that a beautiful wedding dress and there is NO WAY you could be an ugly bride, show us those beautiful wedding pics!

@freckles5672:  Yeah, I checked out your dress pictures too.  You are so far from ugly it is ridiculous!  You are very pretty.  I would look like plain Jane standing next to you.

That is negative self-talk going on in your mind, and you can be sure that when it goes like, “everyone ______________, except for me”, it is a lie.

I would encourage you to share the photos with your friends who are asking you to post pics. They’re requesting to see photos because they know you are and looked beautiful on your wedding day. Accept their compliments and ignore the negative thoughts that are likely to cross your mind – they’re not fact and they will go away.
