I think I made a mistake-- Wedding Dress

Recommended Posts

Hi BDWers,

 

I need some honest opinions and I know that you all will give me your true feelings in a constructive way. Please know I appreciate it in advance.

 

Anyways, I went to pick up my dress today. It made me feel sick to my stomach. I've been worrying for months that I picked the wrong dress & I didn't know if it was b/c its so much fun to look at all of your dresses or if something is really wrong with my choice.

 

When I tried on the dress today I wasn't in love. Don't get me wrong-- I do love the dress but I just am thinking that its not the dress to make me look fantastic. Please take a look at the pics and let me know what you think about it's style and me. Keep in mind that I'm short (5'1")-- does the dress make me look cut off?

 

Thanks so much for all of your honesty and opinions in advance!

 

Love ya-- H

It's a beautiful dress but I can see what you mean about looking "cut-off". Is the dress going to be altered at all or is that the length it will be? Are you wearing heels? I do think it looks good on you though!

Ok, you asked for an honest opinion. While I think the dress is very pretty, I think it does cut you off, as you say. I think that there might be a better dress for you out there. Plus there is nothing wrong with having two dresses!

I saw this dress in every bridal magazine I bought and I do LOVE it, but ... you're right. I think it does cut you off quite a bit in the front. The back looks stunning, but the front looks a little off. I think I would keep looking if it were me. smile03.gif

Well I think the dress looks great on you, and I happen to love that dress in particular. It might appear more cut off, because it needs to be hemmed. I think once it is hemmed it will look alot different. But if you are really not loving the dress, I say go for 2 dresses. I had the same thing happen to me, and then I went and found another dress "the one" for the ceramony, and then will use that dress for the reception.

Yeah I agree with the pp. I think the only reason it looks "cut off" is because it isn't probably hemmed yet. I think you look beautiful & it's a gorgeous dress, but if you don't feel like it's THE dress, then you should definitely keep looking...good luck!

Honestly - thats an incredibly sexy dress and I can see why you picked it.

 

From the back I think that it look amazing! very sexy, and I think it elongates you with the vertical line down your back

 

From the front - I think you are right it does cut you off a little, I think it is a combination of the bulk of the straps and the length of the dress

 

That being said - I would look at your options for altering it as I think with some creative changes it could be the 'one' :)

 

Here would be my suggestion - dont touch the back - but make it the feature of the dress. Cut off the bit at the front making it strapless (the bit still goes up the front and bust, just finishes at the top of the dress. I would get straps made out of the ivory fabric that goe from the back of your neck (connecting it to the top of feature up your back) and have the sraps connect the the outer edges of the bustline (essentially turning it into a halter). You would also need to shorten it. The white halter would elongate the dress at the white will travel up to the top of your shoulders insted of cutting off at the bust.

 

Anyway, thats just my suggestion but I'm no steamstress!! Hope it helps anyway - just something to think about - maybe it is the 'one' and you just haven't digged deep enough just yet :)

You asked for an honest opinion, so I will give you mind. It is a beautiful dress but I think that it does cut you off a bit. I absolutely love the back though!! Why not try to have it altered a bit, I am sure it will then be perfect. I know how you feel, I went to pick up my dress last week and have the same problem... good luck to you, I am sure that whatever you choose to do, you will look amazing for you bid day!!

    • Hello, I am getting married after 2 months. I and my fiancee were searching for a beautiful spot for our pre-wedding photoshoot. And finally, we have selected Algonquin Park. We have decided to do some adventurous activities there. In the video, we would like to show our moments of trying adventures together. Especially, hiking and canoeing. It would be really fun. We have found a suitable trail for hiking in Algonquin Park. Had anyone tried hiking there? What would be the estimated amount for it? Please do share it here. Thanks!
    • Anybody getting married at the fives beach hotel in playa del carmen in 2020? I'd like to connect with others as we are experiencing some issues and misinformation with the karisma transition. Hoping we can all help each other!
    • Pronovias Pria Wedding Dress. Sweetheart neckline with beautiful soft lace detailing throughout. Low lace back with button detailing. This dress falls beautifully on your silhouette and is so comfortable to wear. Bought a size 16 for my big hips, but tailored it to fit more like a 12-14 (in street clothes I'm a size 10). If you're looking for a destination wedding dress that won't make you sweat all night, this one is for you! I absolutely loved this dress and will miss never wearing it again.  Alterations: Ribbon empire bow on belt at waist was removed and replaced with a sparkly applique. Train was removed. More pictures are available. Paid $1400 Cdn, asking for $500 - it's in good shape (looks like new with no markings!) and has already been professionally cleaned.
