Do you have a picture of yours?  If it’s fit & flare, do you think the “flare” might be a nice compromise and give that bit of poof?  I know what you mean about second guessing, I’m doing that with flowers right now based on something he said!!  It’s hard sometimes to get past what we hear our fiance or sometimes our friends & family say. But it is true that you know what looks best on you.  And when he sees you, he’s not going to be worried about the poof!!

Don’t do this to yourself!  

A few months ago, I showed Fiance a pic of a Monique Lhuillier that I liked, and he said, “She looks like a mummy. Like she rolled herself in a bed sheet.”

I showed him the same pic last week, and he said “Ooh, pretty!”


He probably just thought you wanted him to have an opinion, so he gave one.

You are going to be beautiful, and that’s all he will see.

I would be shocked if he saw you in your dress in person and was able to identify the dress as being that style. 😉 Your dress is stunning and you are going to be beautiful in it. That is what your lucky groom is going to be focusing on!

@Reeniero:   Lol sounds like fiancé   


Go with your gut! I originally picked my dres based on my fh taste and I was miserable. He does not like a lot of poofiness or very over the top wedding dress, while I am the opposite! I was unhappy with my dress bc I settled, so I got a new one to make me happy. After all it is my wedding as well


i think you should stay with your original dress, if it is the one of your  dreams! He will love it the day.  My friend told me that before she got married her hus and told her that all brides look the same, why was she making a big deal about her dress! Well the day of the wedding when he saw her for her for the first time, he said that he was wrong, she was the most beautiful bride he had ever seen.  Your fh will feel the same no matter what dress you are wearing 🙂

@MrsRayner:  Keep your dress! After looking at the photos, I think your trumpet/fit and flare dress has a big enough skirt. I thought you were wearing a sheath dress or something. Your FH really would not be able to tell the difference between a ballgown skirt or what you have! I also prefer your current dress to the ball gown you posted. 🙂

I bet that when he sees you in it, he’ll think it’s perfect. (And honestly, with the volume in the ‘flare’ of your dress, I bet some guys wouldn’t even really know the difference between that and a ball gown, sadly… haha.)

Your dress is beautiful! He’ll realize how much he likes fit and flare when he sees you in it.

youre dress still has thefull skirt, it’s just dropped waist and it looks gorgeous on you. I’m sure he’ll be floored when he sees you.

Keep your lovely, fit-and-flare poufy dress, and go read that thread Zouave posted! Honestly, as long as your the one in it, he’s not going to care. And the dress is big enough on the bottom to slide into the ballgown catagory for most men!

OH PLEASE! DO NOT LISTEN TO THAT MAN. He hasn’t seen you in the dress you picked out yet!

I agree with the previous posters… Dudes don’t really know, and in the moment I think they only see “their bride”, the dress is secondary. and your dress is GORGEOUS! Go with your gut, lady!

The dress is for you to wear. And he will probably forget all about the TV show…. For the love of peanuts…. don’t let him see another one! LOL
