Dress not have the wow factor you wanted?

Recommended Posts

Hey Ladies,

 

My wedding is two months away now, and I find I'm waning on my dress.  I tried on a ton of dresses, and I was flipping through all of the pictures, and my dress is still my favourite by far!

 

I went for a fitting, and two of my BM's (my sister and my best friend) and my mom came with me.  They all live out of town, so hadn't been to see my dress or anything yet. They were all looking for dresses too, and especially my mom was feeling kind of stressed about it, feeling self conscious about her body.

 

Anyways, I came out in my dress, it had been altered so it actually fit this time and...nothing. It was very anti-climatic, I was disappointed.  The only person who even seemed to notice was my Nana, who took a picture (and I think shows it to everyone she sees now).

 

These aren't usually selfish or self absorbed people, although I know they were all trying on dresses too, but I feel like there should have been some reaction.  Two of them are super prone to crying during events like this, and like I said, nothing!

 

Is it my dress? Am I reading to much into this?  I didn't think it bothered me (this was about 2 months ago).  Now I've moved to Alberta (and my dress is still in Manitoba) so I can't even go try it on and see how I feel, and I've probably spent a few hours on Kijiji looking at wedding dresses for sale in my area. I can't afford to go get a brand new one (since we just moved, bought a new house, I'm not working yet, trying to finish school etc.).

 

One of my bridesmaids is being super helpful, and we're plotting a new flower and such for the dress - but I am just not feeling it.  I hope it's just a fleeting moment of dress doubt.

 

Anyone else experienced this?  Thanks for listening!

Here is my dress. It really is what I wanted, fitted top, skirt for frolicking, nice and simple without all of the gems and crystals.... and yet.   Gah!

If the dress is what you wanted that is what matters the most!!! Who cares what other people think as long as you love your dress. It is your and your FI day, do what you want and don't worry, on your wedding day everyone will awed when they will see u :D

It looks great!  Go with your heart, did you cry or have those feelings when you saw yourself in it?  That's what matters!  :)

I think your dress is stunning!!  I think that you need to go with what your heart it telling you.  And don't go by other peoples reactions.  You need to go with how you are feeling about it.  I think if you fell in love with to begin with then its probably the right dress.  Maybe it would be worth while going to a store to just try on a few dresses to make sure it really is your dream dress.

Thanks Ladies. I think I needed to hear it from a few other people to believe it.  :) I do wish I could go try it on to re-assure myself.  It'll just have to wait!

Avens,

 

Did u feel wow and aw~~ wearing this dress? if yes, then just ignore others' reactions, becuz it is not their wedding day.

If no, they you must ask yourself why.  Bottom line, do you like yourself to be in this dress?

It looks light and easy-breezy...exactly the criteria I was looking for when I bought my DW dress.  And you look stunning in it.  I think it was a great choice!

I think it looks beautiful! I agree with others, you have to follow your heart.  I had the same problem, ordered a dress had major dress regret and went back and tried it on two more times and both times it did nothing for me.  I decided to change my dress and absolutely love my dress now and couldn't be any happier.  If you can try it on again, I say definately do that.  If you feel beautiful in it and you can picture yourself walking down the aisle in it then I wouldn't worry about their reactions :)

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
