Not my thing, but if you like it, then keep it.

I took my mother dress shopping with me. She hated the dress I bought. I told her to deal with it, put on a pair of sunglasses and haters gonna hate strolled out of the store.

You don’t need to impress anybody but you.

The dress is gorgeous on you. If your gut feeling was that it was “the one” then roll with it.  I’m pretty sure my Mum and a couple of my BM’s don’t like my dress but I dont care.  It’s my day.

Yeah, I had a very similar experience. I went dress shopping with my Future Mother-In-Law and one of my  bridesmaids, and I suggested a dress that my Future Mother-In-Law said “No” to without me even trying it on (because it has colour – the horror!!). I tried it on a week later with just my mum present, and I loved it! I daresay many of fiance’s more traditional family won’t like the fact that it’s not pure white, but I love the dress, as do my family, my bridesmaids and my fiance.

that is super pretty! i think everyone can be critical when its not their dress. i think if you love it then keep it because what you think  is the most important thing ever. you dont want to look back at pictures and think “wow i really wish i went with the dress that I loved instead of everyone else”

Unless your sis/MOH is wearing the dress, she doesn’t have to love it-only you do.

Chances are you will  never find a dress that everyone loves, so go with the one you love. Your day-your dress.

I agree with a PP, it isn’t my thing/style either but you have to wear it and feel great in it. You do look very good in it!

You will NEVER find a dress that EVERYONE loves. Remember it is your wedding so do it how you and your Fiance want including dress/tux, accessories, everything. I’ve learned that pretty quickly but everyone has had something to say about all my plans.

Your sister is crazy! You look gorgeous in it. If you feel it’s “the one”, then it is.

Don’t let anyone else’s opinion of your dress bother you!  It is your dress after all.

This reminds me a lot of mine– and therefore I like it 🙂


I’m sorry your family doesn’t know to keep their mouth shut if they don’t like something.  They should be supportive and the worse thing they should have said is “not my style, but looks great on you.”  Any comment that is more critical than that is inappropriate.

LOVE your dress and its super flattering on you! All that matters is that YOU love it! There will always be someone somewhere who doesn’t like your dress or other wedding things you have chosen for that matter! Who cares? You’re wearing it and you must feel beautiful!

I think sometimes the people that are there to support you with your dress choice forget that it’s about you and it’s your wedding.  The dress looks great on you and if you love it then that’s all you need.  Just remember you can please some of the people some of the time but not all of the people all of the time.  You found your dress now look forward to a beautiful wedding with you Fiance.

It is not my style, but if you love it, you should wear it. If it makes you feel special and beautiful, then it’s the dress you should wear on your wedding day.

Yes, I suppose it’s nice to hear we look lovely, but honestly, it really didn’t matter to me if everyone else liked it. 

What you look like in that dress is nothing compared to how you will look in your full ensemble, with your hair and make-up, veil and jewelry. You are wearing the dress, not a coat hanger. The happy glow you’ll have on your big day ensures that you could wear a burlap sack, and still be the most beautiful girl in the room.

Ignore what they say, and go with your heart.
