@Future MrsB: can i just say you look absolutely beautiful and i can tell how happy you both are so please dont worry!!
also, i am a size 18 up top, 22 at the bottom, and my fiancee is smaller than me, i was worried about looking fat, losing weight etc etc… but i came to the conclusion that my fiancee loves me for ME and he will think i am beautiful anyway.
plus, my gown makes my waist look smaller so YAY!
here is a photo of my fiancee and i… (note the cupcakes hehe)
and here i am when my dress arrived in the mail yesterday…
curvy and proud i say girls!!! 😀

I’m completely terrified of this too. My Fiance is a lot smaller than me, and even though he loves all of me, I don’t want to look back and be disgusted with how I look. The really scary thing is that my chest is SOO small. Most plus size women have big boobs, but not this one! 🙁 Everything I wear, my stomach pokes out more than my chests, which makes me look bigger. I don’t want that to happen in my gown. Also, I am prone to sweating, especially when I’m nervous or excited, and I will be both during my wedding. I don’t want that to ruin my make up or hair. I’m excited to get married, but scared to think of all the things that can go wrong, which I tend to do A LOT!
However, we all deserve to be loved and I’m happy to know that you all have found that special someone as well. Congrats ladies! 🙂

OMG. It is so nice to see I am not the only one stressing about this!!
I too dread the FB pics since people always seem to tag you in pictures from the WORST possible angle, making the worst face, in a sitting position while mid sentence. LOL
I can completely relate to all the gripes as well as the words of wisdom and encouragement. I am just beginning to plan my wedding (I got engaged on St. Patrick’s Day! YAY!!!) and I know when it comes time to figure out pictures I am going to FREAK.
I am going to try to remember the great pearls of wisdom on here and remember to love me for me, enjoy my day, and focus on what is really important- like marrying the love of my life! <3
(But I am still going to stress about double chins like no other!! LOL)

Hello! We had our engagement session yesterday (23 days before our wedding) And just HAD to report back here. I’ve only seen a handful of our pictures so far and I love love LOVE them! Every fear I have has completely disappeared.
We wore matching The “My Last Name” Bunch tee shirts, black running pants with white stripes and black and white Chucks. I can’t believe I’m going to post this but here you go….
This is just a taste our photographer sent me tonight. I know I’m hiding behind my Fiance but in others I’m not and I STILL love them! Please excuse my flat hair, it started drizzling toward the end. This picture alone brought me to tears. Every doubt I had about myself disappeared. I can’t express how relieved I am. Bring on my wedding dress, I’m so going to ROCK it!

@MarryingAmonkey: That pic is awesome! I’m sure the rest of them are too, and I’m glad to hear you got over your dread that way. We are having an engagement shoot in May or June to “practice” because I have always hated pics so hopefully the same will happen to me and I’ll shake off the nerves.
And look how proud and happy your Fiance looks, love it!

Date Twin! We only have 19 days left. I feel the same and I agree talk to your photographer so they can prepare posing positions and such. You;ll look beautiful!
