I agree with MissPumpkinBarry, as long as you like it who cares! Don’t read the Dress/Gown Threads just in case… 😉 Love your dress, you will be gorgeous on your wedding day I’m sure! I wore a gown that was not a popular dress so I could have felt like I chose a reject, but I loved it and got so many compliments and am happy with my choice.

I decided to avoid the dress threads for a couple of months because i was having similar concerns. I kept getting dress regret and I knew, in the long run, that I had to love MY dress, even if it wasnt everyone’s favorite. I figure, I fell in love with it for a reason. When I tried it on, I felt special. There may be another dress out there that is better for me, and MAYBE its within my budget. But, I could wonder and say that about the guy I am with too. I’m just not willing to put myself through that dress anxiety anymore. If you love it, then its perfect, and you will glow. Besides, most guests have NO clue what dress styles are “in” right now, so they dont know the difference.

None of the people on the boards know you, yours style and how your dress will look and feel on you.   Would you care if a few people in another town didn’t like your dress?

Seriously, if you love it, no one else matters!

So I went back and looked at some of your posts, and I LOVE your dress!  I haven’t seen any bad posts about this dress, but then again I haven’t actively seeked threads about this dress.  I think if you feel gorgeous in it, then nothing else matters!

Let me asssure you that 99% of the people on the bee do not hate your dress.

Probably 98% have never seen or commented on your dress.Only the totally insensitive would make a comment like that.

Why would you care what somebody else thinks? And a stranger at that? Their tatse may be completely out to lunch.

too bad if they don’t like it. It’s YOU wearing it and if you love it then the rest is history. Fact is we all have different styles therefore it’s inevitable that some bees won’t see what you see in your dress, just as you may not see what they see in their’s. The only important thing about choosing a dress is how you feel in it and if you feel amazing the deals done! wear your dress and wear it with confidence!

No offense, but going by your posts, maybe internet boards aren’t such a great place for you to be right now if they are making you cry and feel insecure all the time?

Beyond that I don’t really know what to say. There’s no need to care about what a bunch of people who don’t know you think of you, your dress, or anything else you’re doing. If you put it out there, you kind of have to brace yourself for thoughts and opinions you may agree or disagree with. That’s the whole point of a forum.

I went back and looked at your posts because I was curious about what dress you could have chosen that would be so horrible that 99% of the hive would hate it. Well, imagine my shock when I saw that you had posted a beautiful dress! I expected something really ugly, but instead, I find a picture of you with a huge smile rocking a dress that looks made for you. 

Even if you’ve read some negative things about your dress, remember that everyone has different likes and dislikes. No matter how popular or unpopular a dress is, there there is always someone who can pull off it off and look fantastic in it. And I’ve never once heard of a dress that the groom has hated when he saw his bride in it. 

I don’t know what has been said about it, but I wouldn’t worry about them or take them seriously. You look beautiful in your dress and it obviously makes you very happy if the smile you’re wearing is any indication….That’s all that matters.

I also went back to see this atrocity, only to find that I voted for that dress in your poll!

I love it.

and btw only 64% didn’t like it, so lets not exaggerate.  And who cares if 99% didn’t like it anyway? R u marrying these bees?

you just ooze happiness in your dress (i HAD to go back and look) – and really that is all that matters, if you are that happy just trying it on, just imagine how beautiful you will feel on your wedding day – Everyone has their own opinions, try not to let it get to you. I had horrible dress regret, not because of people hating my dress (though i havent met a single person with my dress…wonder what that says about it?) but just seeing all of the gorgeous dresses on this site, its hard not to second guess your decision. Its your wedding day, wear what makes you feel good.

I love your dress! So what if a bunch of other brides have it? Probably NONE of your guests will know that, and it will completely knock their socks off. You look gorgeous in it; it’s a gorgeous dress; try not to think about what WB posters say about it.

That said, I do agree with KatyElle. Maybe wedding discussion forums aren’t for you. It’s really not good that it upsets you like this. Plenty of people plan their weddings without using discussion boards. Make search engines your new best friend!
