freaking out... Did I choose the right dress? Too poofy?!

Recommended Posts

I really like it! I got a maggie too and was worried about the poof too...I'm not gonna wear a poofy underskirt though so its not as big. They always try to make it huge on the model!

I think you chose a beautiful dress. It is NOT puffy at all! I don't think you should compare your dress to others on the site or worry about it being a DW. If you Love it, it will show when you have it on the day of!

I want to first say congratualations and happy planning. Second that dress is amazing I am getting married in Jamaica and I have a some what poofy dress as well and I don't mind because when I put the dress on I new that it was the dress. If you get that feeling when you put that dress on then your problem and the answer to all your questions should be solved. It's how the dress makes you feel. I hope you go with your choice above. Good luck

Beautiful dress and not too poofy, are you unsure because you are still looking at other dresses or because you are really not sure if it is the ONE.

 

If it's just that you are looking at other dresses then don't, problem solved.

 

If you are really not comfortable in the dress and you are really unsure that it's not the one, then maybe you should try on other dresses to compare.

 

What ever you decide I am should you will make the right decsion in the end.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!

 

I feel so much better!!! I purchased this dress and its paid in full! I think the biggest thing was I also tried on the Ireland dress way more beachy and flowy and everyone in the store was freaking out and loving it and I didnt like it, granted it was 2 sizes too small and I couldnt get the full picture. But I did keep going back to this Harriet dress and I loved it!!! I think the only weird thing about it is the material its an organza like but very different almost a unique tiny box pattern up close.

 

But Im going to see about the taking a layer of toile(sp?) out underneath and not wear that darn poofy petty coat underneath it adds way too much. I also ordered my veil which they had in stock but Im wondering if the veil is part of the issue Im having!!

 

thanks everyone for your support!!!! I love this forum!!!!!!!!!!!!

Aww Sweetie!! It's a beautiful dress! And i don't think it's too poofy at all!! I would have to agree with the other girls. It's your wedding, and you should wear whatever you want to wear! There are tons of dresses out there. But, when you know it's the dress, you can definitely feel it as soon as you have it on. I think being drawn to this same dress every time, is a sign..

I think the dress is absolutely gorgeous and not poofy at all. I had intentions of getting a dress that was very beachy, flowy, light material, etc...and ended up with the exact opposite. My dress is very poofy...way more than yours, and it was just what looked right on me. Sometimes you have an idea in your head of what you want, but what looks good on you might be different. What issues are you having with your veil? Are you not sure that you want a veil?

Ooh! It's stunning....and not poofy at all, if you want to know the truth! I think it's chic and sophisticated, and is completely DW-appropriate!

 

Your situation of being unsure is like something I went through. I went from thinking that I had to have a clean and simple "beach-y" dress just because I am getting married in Jamaica, which pretty much meant nothing too frilly or princessey. But then after we bought my first dress (which was just a very simple strapless a-line), I had a major change of heart after being inspired by some of the other BDW members that had more traditional "bigger" dresses, and now I want to wear what I've envisioned myself in all along since I was just a kid -- I want a full skirt (probably with some kind of pick-ups), and a real train, not to mention a chapel-length veil, reaching all the way down to the ground! Maybe that's why I am going to be a 3 dress bride though: I will still be wearing the 1st dress (after it's shortened to tea length) for my AHR, my 2nd dress was bought specifically to do a TTD (for $75 on eBay), and now I just want to lose a little extra weight before I purchase the 3rd gown, which I'll be wearing for the ceremony (and for our 1st dance at our AHR)!

 

The bottom line is you have to do what feels right to you; if you want a poofy dress, WEAR ONE! If you love a dress that hugs your curves, WEAR ONE! And if you love the dress you showed us (which is the best of both worlds, in my opinion), then go for it and WEAR IT! You'll hear this a million, zillion times but, IT'S YOUR SPECIAL DAY! Do what makes you feel like the most beautiful bride in the world...

 

Good luck wink.gif

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
