Some things you need to accept to avoid being hurt/upset in the future:

No one will be as excited about your wedding as you, ever.  It is up to you and your Fiance to plan the wedding, not the bridal party.  If they offer to help that is one thing, and if you need help you can ask, but they are not required to help plan/do DIY projects etc.

I know you seem to have gotten off to a bit of a sad start planning, but hopefully going forward you can adjust your expectations of what your bridal party is for.

As for the dresses, I think it is fine to try on many styles, take pictures (lucky the salon even let you take pictures without purchasing!) to get a feel of what you like.  Sounds like the salon you went to wasn’t a great experience.  Ask friends/family/coworkers what salons they recommend and read reviews online to try and find one that will be a better experience.  I think the first dress is a more flattering shape on you.

ETA: saw you posted another dress, I like dress 3 as well on you!

is that anya bridal? i went there and tried on dress 3 as well. so i do love that dress the best on you. im in atlanta too, maybe we should get an atlanta group together to start doing things because i dont really have friends here either. i had to do all my dress shopping with Fiance. you shold try Bel Fiore in marietta, thats where i got my dress and i loooove it and their customer service was much better to me than Anya, if you want to PM me you can and at least you can have someone to talk to about it 🙂

@JJSoon2bwife14:  Yea you will soon learn people arent as happy as you are, but thats what we are here for,

in regards to dress I like 2, on you, inregards to the weight… I think you look amazing, I love the definition in your back, and your shoulders

I think you will look amazing on your wedding dress, and please never forget your fiance’ sees you every day and he loves the woman you are the size that you are,

now if you dont like something change it but dont beat yourself over it!

and the cousin well she was the moody one,

@JJSoon2bwife14:  love love love the first one!


A very wise person warned me before I started planning that I will never get what I give to others. So, when the girls who I helped plan their big day were lacking in the support area, it was the reaction that I expected. You mentioned that many of your friends aren’t married – there is a good chance they are jealous of where you are at in your life. When my best friend got engaged a few years ago, I was a bit of an ass (looking back) simply because I was so sad about not being close to that part of my life yet. 

I’ve done most of my wedding stuff by myself (some help from the amazing Mr.) and I’ve actually prefered it! I’m able to do things on my own schedule, and I don’t have to hear anyone’s input into what they don’t like 😉


Big hugs girl! Just keep your focus on what’s most important – marrying the man of your dreams 🙂
