Dress not have the wow factor you wanted?

Recommended Posts

I totally agree, it is a beautiful dress and it looks amazing on you.  Perfect for a DW.  My dress is not anything that I thought I would pick and I am never sure how I feel about it because honestly I don't care about it that much.  Necessary evil for a wedding IMO, but I also know my body isn't perfect.  So if it makes you excited it is all that matters

that is a beautiful dress! I agree, if you had it at home, you would probably look at it all the time and feel more excited about it.

 

What about accessories and shoes? Have you picked all that out? Those would jazz up the ensemble and maybe give you something else to focus on :)

Avens-

 

I don't think you are alone in dress doubts...I just decided yesterday that my dress I had bought and paid a $270.00 deposit on was not for me.  I think the problem is, is that I had another dress in mind from the get go.  I am now going to order my new dress on netbride.com, and I am super excited about it!

 

I think the difference between us is that everyone gave me that OH WOW factor when I bought my original dress, but I didn't feel that way.  I bought it because everyone else thought it looked great.  I didn't feel that excited about it.  However it sounds like you liked your dress to begin with, and you are doubting it because you didn't get the response you would have liked.  If you love it and feel great about it, then I think that's all that matters. I took my mom and sister to look at my new dress today, and they certainly didn't give me the same WOW factor that I got the first time.  But I'm excited about it and that's all that matters, and if you are excited about your dress, you should be happy.  By the way, it looks great on you!

I think the dress is really beautiful, its too bad you didnt get the reaction you wanted. I think it might be natural to think maybe you could have picked a better dress? I sometimes wonder myself because it was actually the one and only dress I tried on ( I put it on every now and then to reaffirm its awesome)  But I personally think your dress is very flattering on you and there is no reason they shouldnt have been wowed. Maybe they were waiting for your reaction? Like you know how people think u should cry when its THE dress?

Thank you everyone who offered your kind words and made me feel better.  The dress really was perfect, and I knew it as soon as I saw it again!  You guys are the best!!  The pictures are slow to come in from friends and family ( well we just got back yesterday, maybe I'm impatient :P).  Here's the best one I could find thus far!

Sorry, I should have clarified as my comment was rather random...there have been some brides (including myself) on BDW trying to work out whether or not if the bride wears an off white gown, it's ok for the groom to be in a white shirt.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • 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
