I love that dress! It looks great on you!

I’ve noticed that too. Some of them look really pissed off. And I’ve seen some with absolutely BIZARRE hair and veil, they literally look like bird’s nests. To me, that detracts from the dress. Happy models would make me think more positive thoughts about the dresses.

I heard once the reason why runway models always look pissed off is that if they smiled the attention would be brought to their face, not the product (clothing).  Maybe it’s the same thing for print work.

My sister and a few other people commented about my dress.  They said they never would have chosen it based on how it looks on the model, but it really came to life on a real person.  I think many of the models are straight up and down and don’t have the curves needed to really fill out my wedding dress appropriately. 

Talking to the many bridal consultants in my extended dress hunt, I heard more than once that it was more challenging for them to find more traditional dresses that looked good on girls built like models.  They said a few curves helped fill out the dresses.  I didn’t worry about the implications and took it as a compliment…  Never mind that they might have been implying that I’m *ahem* fluffy!

I’d probably be pissed if someone airbrushed my kidney off too… You look great!

I think both of you look great!

 I’m kind of amused how a large percentage of the models look like they’re 14-16 years old. What 14 year old should be wearing a wedding dress in the first place?
