If you don’t love it why did you pick it? I think you need to love your wedding dress and if you don’t it doesn’t matter what others say about it

iscnrr1331 :  the only person who can make you love the dress is you, but it looks really good on you. Nips in at the right places and makes your curves look fantastic 🙂

Once again, an OP describes herself as looking hideous and you scroll down to the photo and see that she actually looks amazing. It happens so often. I wish we could all drink a magic solution that makes us happy with our bodies.

Girl, you crazy!

Congrats on the weight loss!  That is not an easy feat.  You said you wanted to lose 30lb but honestly it doesn’t look like you need to lose any more weight!

I too don’t comment a lot on dress threads because dresses are so personal but I have to say your dress is beautiful and looks awesome on you.  Rock it!

“Even though I’ve lost 23 pounds all I can think about are the imperfections I see (back fat, arm pit fit, stomach bulge) where I didn’t lose enough weight” 

Lemme throw this out there to you and everyone else (including myself bc I constantly need the reminder lol) – When you look at other people or their pictures, do you notice all their imperfections? Not likely. Sometimes when I look at pictures of myself, I think “Ugh this” or “ugh that” and then I realize I absolutely don’t even THINK of looking at other people in pictures that way so they’re not looking at pictures of me that way. And double or even TRIPLE that for when I’m with them in person. So I have to remind myself that even though I hate my arms, nobody else even notices that I have them.

I assure you that dress definitely has wow factor. I’m only looking at the pictures and as soon as I opened the thread I gasped and went “Ooooh!” outloud at work.

Seriously – you look drop dead gorgeous in this dress. Don’t let your nerves get the better of you! I am not the type to give out false compliments. You are rocking this dress to the max!!

It honestly looks perfect, and you will be gorgeous. We are always more critical looking at ourselves. I think that’s human nature. Best wishes for the wedding.

Like PP have said, you DO look stunning! 

With that said, I just got another dress because I was dreading wearing the dress I already bought.  I was making myself crazy and sick about it, so I can not imagine how you are feeling so close to your date.  What do you see yourself wearing or looking like that day? What does this dress not have that you want?

I don’t see the sense in trying to convince you to wear that dress, if you really are uncomfortable in it.  I see you got your dress at Kleinfeld, are you local to NYC? I know someone who’s entire engagement was 3 weeks and she got a GORGEOUS dress off the rack in NYC.  Would you consider doing that? The Bridal Garden is a bridal consignment shop and you can get really, really good deals there with a small budget.
