If it wasnâ€™t white you wouldnâ€™t know it was a wedding dressâ€. You know what, he was right. While I love every detail of my dress and think it reflects my personality to a â€˜Tâ€™ it never gave me a bridal feeling which is a pretty important factor to overlook. And after having this conversation and trying my dress on again I knew I couldnâ€™t were it on our wedding day. Any-who, hereâ€™s dress #2, not sure about the veil or the sash, but the dress is a definite keeperâ€¦
Gorgeous gown. You look resplendent. I say go with the sash! I like the extra pop it adds. I love lace- its timeless and elegant. I'm curious about the first dress too! Post a picture. What are the odds! HAHA once we became engaged and I would look through bridal magazines and ask my fiance his opinions he would say "I'm not saying anything because I don't want to stop you from your dream dress with my opinions and if I say I don't like it I don't want to break your heart." Once I got my gown- I actually did show him the pics of all the dresses I tried on- with the exception of "the one" and I asked what he thought and he refused to say anything because he was worried if he nayed a style close to my choice, he would offend me. He also refused to look at them for a very long time. And he will not say anything when I watch SYTTD because he thinks I'm trying to bait him into commenting on a dress similar to mine. He is convinced I have already shown him the pic because he thinks its one of the ones I didn't pick. What are the odds that he would comment on your actual gown? That's insane! But I'm glad you found an alternative you love even more than the first. What will you do with the first gown? Will you sell it? Or use it for a TTD? Or change into it for the reception?
