    I think that dress looks wonderful on you! I'm probably going to have a similar design for mine.. perfect for a beach wedding!

      Galit - your dress is phenomenal!!! I love love love the back of it! I know you had fallen in love with a super expensive dress at Kleinfeld's, but this one is amazing. Your dress needs to make you happy, and $4000 in the bank would certainly make me happy - lol. I'm sorry that your sister wasn't as excited about it as you were, but you look beautiful in it!

          Your dress is gorgeous!!!!! I wish I could pull off a sexy, flowy dress like that!

          I had the same problem, only, I didn't want anyone to come with me to look for dresses but my mom & sister really wanted too. So I picked out 4 dresses that I really liked, one that I really loved, and they came and every dress was, oh, thats nice and that ones pretty. It was so frustrating!!! After that whole experience I was so mad, I said screw it, bought a beautiful dress on ebay at a bargain price, got the dress and its absolutely gorgeous, and ended up thinking about the dress I really wanted day & night, I ended up back at the store and bought it, now I'm just waiting for it to get here and I'm so excited.

          So, if you love this dress (and I think you look stunning in it) just buy it and don't worry about everyone else's opinion, it will drive you crazy!!

              Tammy, I tried the dress in the store with a veil, and you are absolutely right - it totally hides the back. I haven't figured out exactly what I am going to do since it is part of a jewish ceremony to wear a veil. I might just try to find a really sheer veil and then take it off ASAP. Is there such a thing as only wearing the veil that goes over the front without the back piece?

              Ann, that totally helps! I think part of my worry is that I will regret not spending the money, but it helps to hear from you (as well as the other already married girls) that on the day of, the last thing you were worried about was the dress.

              To everyone else - thank you SOOOO much! What would I do without all of you?!?! The back of the dress is my favorite part... getting married on a beach is the best possible excuse to be a little sexy on my wedding day and i love it

              For right now, I am going to stick to my guns and stand by my dress... I just know that FI will love it as much as I do, and in the end, thats all that matters. It's def not the dress I thought I would end up with when I started looking, but I really do think its perfect for my wedding (plus the jew in me can't pass up a $500 Reem Acra dress)

                  That is a really pretty dress. For what it is worth my sister gave me the same tone with my dress. I don’t care. We both have different tastes and if you love it then buy it because you are the one that will be wearing it.

                    Galit I am not saying this to make you feel better or b/c I am a nice person. I am saying this b/c it is the ABSOLUTE truth. That dress looks amazing on you! It is so fabulous, you look stunning. If you look this good in it now, imagine how great you will look in it when you have your hair, make-up and jewelery done!

                    I also have a sister so I completely understand where you are coming from. However, I think your sister is probably comparing the dress to something she pictured on you if you were having your wedding at Temple or somewhere like that. It probably still hasn't fully sunk in that you are getting married at a beach destination and not going to wear a poofy cinderella dress. Not that there is anything wrong with a poofy dress but you know what I mean. You like this dress b/c it is a bargain, beautiful, and perfect for the beach weather.

                    Once she sees the whole thing done up she will be so happy for you that she will love the dress. Trust me.

                      I LOVE that dress on you!!!! Seriously, it is stunning - the back is soooooo beautiful. Perfect for a beach wedding. Maybe your sister was just thinking more traditional. Honestly, I think it's PERFECT and one of my favs I've seen so far.
