I actually love that dress on you! I understand the feeling your having, I had it too. There’s nothing wrong with the dress but it doesn’t feel 100%. I would see what accessories do for you, if you really wanted to you could go to a dress store and see what they had to buy of the rack or sample sales.

As soon as I saw your photos I thought WOW! I love your dress and you look gorgeous in it so prolly just your nerves talking. It reeally accentuates your amazing figure so dont understand how you’re not happy with it? I think just relax and stop worrying! I havent seen any bad response on here, i’m sure EVERYONE will think the same – that you look bloody amazing in the dress 🙂

The wow factor of the dress is YOU. Seriously, you look incredible and have the hourglass figure alot of people dream of! The dress is stunning.

You look absolutely beautiful. Just seeing your pics makes ME have dress regret.

iscnrr1331 :  You fill-out that dress quite nicely, with commendable curves.  You can accent your gown with a strand of pearls, or pin a garland of smal flowers along the bust line.  And congratulations on your 23 lbs gone.  You will look gorgeous.

You look so gorgeous in that dress. It’s sexy and elegant–plus it *totally* has the wow factor. I absolutely love it.

 

That being said, I totally get where you’re coming from. My first dress was a gorgeous couture number with beautiful beading, but it was way outside my budget. The dress I settled on was simple and gorgeous, but it’s hard to get the first one out of my head. My family also said that I wear theirs dress, rather than it wearing me like the first one. I don’t have any helpful advice except to say that I understand and I hope you find some measure of peace on your big day. No matter what, you’ll be absolutely stunning.

Oh what a harsh self critic you are! I doubt there’s anythng I can say that will convince you that you are utterly stunning in that BEAUTIFUL dress. It truly looks like it was made for you with your gorgeous hour glass figure.  Most of us would love to look even half as good. Hope you can look beyond your dress reservations to enjoy your day and I bet that in 5 years time you’ll look at your wedding photos and think ” What was I on about..damn good!!!”

I think something other than the dress is causing all this angst.  Could something else be stressing you? 

Wear the dress hun. You look beautiful! Not a roll or imperfection is in sight.  If you want wow (which I truly think you already exude) then add a sparkly belt and/or head piece and jewlery. If it’s not in the budget to buy check rent the runway. They have awesome accessories that you can rent and return.

After your hair & makeup is done you’ll feel and look even more amazing.

Remember the dress is one aspect. The big picture is you, your hubby to be, and the lifetime of blessed awesomeness that you will spend together.

You look like a bombshell. The dress is really spectacular. I remember seeing a bride try that on in Kleinfeld while I was getting my gown fitted. It’s stunning in person. The ruching pattern and the silhouette would be ruined if you added a belt. So do not add a belt!

 I don’t have advice, but I think your dress looks AMAZING. I’m saying this as a person who is not a fan of mermaids. You look fit, and sexy without being provocative. This is a WOW dress. You’re going to knock everyone’s socks off, seriously.
