    For you all that are having second thoughts, go try on your dress again! I'm sure you will love it just as much as I did the second time! 

     

    You look stunning.

     

    When I went dress shopping, I had the thought of a light flowy beachy dress as I thought that what I 'should' wear. After trying on dozen, they just did not suit me.. I looks terrible in them! So.. I tried on a dress that I loved from seeing it in books and on TV, and fell in love with it. It not Beachy at all as far as Im concerned... but I ordered it. For months I thought.. "what did I do!" but when the dress came in and I went for my fittings I was relieved to still love it as much as the first time I tried it on.. if not more!

     

    Its your day, and you should get to wear what you want and what you feel beautiful in, whether is a poofy Ball-Gown, slinky sheath of lacey vintage!

     

    DW are not the norm.. anything goes in my opinion!

      Thank you so much! Not being a tiny girl I was a little worried but it's very slimming! I totally agree with the anything goes motto. I've had so many unnecessary opinions on having to buy a beachy dress. Some are amazing but didn't fit my vintage look I was going for!

       

      Thanks for the sweet comments!

        You look gorgeous and so happy! It's a good reminder to all of us (especially those of us waiting for 6 months to see our dresses again) that we made the right choice because we made it for ourselves. I tried the 'destination wedding' lines and they are really beautiful but none felt right for me. Finally I tried on the one I had saved a picture of months ago which is lacey and vintage looking like yours, so it's not beachy at all but I LOVE it and I love wearing it. So glad you realized you picked the right dress!

          I am going princess the only thing we were worried about is my BM would look funny with sundresses so we went with a little more fancy dresses.

            I need opinions on dress colors.  I tried on dresses yesterday and all of them were a shade of ivory, until the second store, then I tried white.  I'm not sure which color will look better on the beach or if it even matters?  My concern is standing next to my fianc© in khaki and a white shirt and my dress being ivory.  Maybe I am over thinking this??

              Definitely not over thinking this.  White next to ivory tends to make ivory look yellow/dingy.  However, the photo below is of a true ivory, and many wedding dresses are not this dark.  Most are a much lighter ivory where the contrast won't be such a contrast as shown in the pic.  Alternatively, your Fi can wear an off-white shirt which is what we've decided to do.

              I was contemplating this a lot when trying on dresses as well....I always though I needed a white dress, but the ivory just looked so much better with my skin tone....in looking at pictures of other peoples weddings, I've noticed white, ivory, and blush dresses and they have all looked amazing!!  My fiance is also going to be wearing khaki suit with a white shirt (and some type of tie, but i cant decide which color lol) People are going to be so stuck on how stunning YOU look that they wont notice that your dress and his shirt don't match :)  Go with the dress you loveeee and never want to take off!!
