        Ooooh, I love it! Very pretty and romantic. I like the back on it too. Martin says he really likes it also. Good pick!

          Ok, so I am not a good BDW'er after all, cuz I am NOT posting pics. I put the dress on again yesterday and had some pictures taken. I like the way it looks in the mirror, but the pics are hideous. I didn't let it bother me too much, cuz I figured I NEVER like pictures. Then my mom called me this morning to tell me she had to tell me that she hated the dress. This pisses me off cuz I put it on numerous times and said please be honest and tell me, I only have 7 days to return it! Never said a peep. So I called my sister (whom I trust, sometimes my mom is just mean) and my sis isn't crazy about it either. I don't know what to do now. I honestly CANNOT post the pics, cuz they were that bad. But I don't feel that bad when I look in the mirror. I have to return it by tomorrow if I am going to. So I am unsure what to do -
          keep the dress and work on losing weight so I feel like it looks good in pics?
          return the dress and don't dress shop until I feel comfortable with my body?

          I have been getting mixed opinions from everyone. Some say if you feel uncomfortable, jsut return it, something else will come up. Others say, it was only $350, just keep it and if you find another, no big loss. (Those people must have money growing on trees!) But I really do like the dress, just not in pics. And that totally matters, so I am stumped. AHHHHHHHHHHH!

            If you love the dress, then you should keep it! You are the one getting married, not your mom or sister. I know how much those opinions matter, but have they told you why they aren't crazy about it? Were they expecting something more traditional and princessey? I think the dress is gorgeous and perfect for a DW. If you felt good in it, then you should wear it! Good luck and keep us posted on your decision.

              I think it's a beautiful dress, so I can't imagine it looking bad on you. Explain more what YOU don't like in the pictures (not your mom or sis)...

                To be simple - I look like a whale. But I always think I look big. I know in reality I am normal, but I always think pics look horrible, which is why I overlooked it yesterday. But then to hear my sister say that it didn't look good either, that is what makes it real. My mom has a tendancy to be mean to me and always tells me I am fat (hence my self-image issues, it's always been a problem). I know I am not fat, so I am not looking for reassurance there, it is all in how I perceive myself when I see pics. My sister asked if I would be comfortable with the pics when the wedding is over, since that is all I have. From yesterday, I'd say no. But I really do like the dress. And the price is right. But I would hate to feel bad on my wedding. I am rambling.

                  Well, I certainly don't think you're fat and I am certain you don't look like a whale in it; but, I know what I think isn't the issue. If you're really really not comfortable with how you look in the dress, you should return it. It's your wedding day and you want to be happy with yourself and feel good.

                    I agree...you are FAR FROM FAT! There's no way that dress looks bad on you. Maybe it's just the cut you don't like. If you don't feel comfortable showing us pics you probably won't feel comfortable walking down the aisle in it..just a thought.

                      Umm, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but if you don't like yourself in it in the pictures, then it probably does not look so good. Photographers can work some magic, but not make you go from hate to love. So, I don't think you should keep it. You will have lots and lots of pictures taken of you in your dress on your wedding day, and you need to love how it looks or you will regret it forever.

                      I really think you should send it back and look for a dress that you love on you right now. Not if/when you lose weight to make you happier, RIGHT NOW!!! This way if you lose weight it will only look better, and if you don't, who cares because you love it on you RIGHT NOW. Does that make sense?

                      I just want you to be happy and not regret your choice. And I think $350 is a lot of money to just spend on something you will never wear.
