Do any other brides question the right dress for them? Everyone sees me in a super tight, bling, modern blush dress which I do love and my mum and sister see me in a more traditional dress which I also loved. I want to feel like a bride and also wow people so feel as though I'm fitting against what people think I will have. Secondly the dress I love is no longer being made and the store are willing to sell me the sample that is in perfect condition and a perfect fit. I don't know if I'm talking my self into it as it's very reasonable and the one my closest family love! Help!!
Michelle Bairstow - Personally I haven't given a second thought to anyone else's opinions except my mums and sisters when it comes to my dress. Why succumb to what others 'think' you might wear? It is 100% your choice, go for the one you have seen at the great price then your win win in my eyes! Try not to over think it too much. X
Catherine Sherman - It's not about what other people want you to wear or expect you to wear it's about how you feel when you are in it. I was waiting for the "omg this is the one" moment which never came. I really liked most of the dressed I tried and there must've been about 30 but I got my mam & friends to take photos of me in them. When I looked back at the photos although I still liked the dress it showed they weren't very flattering to my shape. It was when my best friend had the "wow this is the one" moment that I listened as I trusted her opinion and if she thought it was really flattering to my shape and thought I looked stunning then I hoped everyone else would too. Imagine all of the dresses were the same price, which one would you pic and which one makes you feel most special. If money is tight and you don't love the other ones much more than the sample one then get the sample one, as long as you love it.
Anneka Gayle - I had the exact same problem. I fell in love with a beautiful dress and id taken my mom with me to all my appointments. Everytime i tried different dresses i kept comparing back to the one id fell in love with. I went back to try it on again and my moms comment was 'well, its just so plain. I worry your bridesmaids are going to upstage you!' How Rude! Needless to say i gave my mom what for and ordered the dress i loved. Go with what you want. It sounds as though youve found your dress x
Jill Watton - I went for a reasonably priced dress and felt AMAZING in it! I think all brides probably do once the day comes. I doubted my decision until I went and looked at it again!
I physically couldn't spend ridiculous amounts on one dress for one day.
Maria Cheetham Page - I didn't get the 'it's the one feeling' . I don't think everyone does. Try not to complicate it. I ended up going for a style of dress the my h2b wanted to see me in but I should have gone with what I wanted as I'm sure he would have liked that too. Just go for a dress u feel happy in and dont put alot of pressure on it. Good luck
Natasha Harmer - I kept people out of the dress choosing process for this reason! Obviously I went with my mum but I didn't involve anyone else as I felt too many different opinions would make things harder. You have to go with what you love, not what anyone else says you should wear. If you're not 100% sure then you haven't found the one yet, keep looking but only go with one or two trusted people, and go with your gut. Once you find one you love you'll just know its the one :)
Becky Barrett - I don't think anyone has any expectation with your dress, whatever you wear they will think you look lovely. I thought i loved massive ball gown dresses but when it came to it because im only 5ft they swamped me so the assistant pulled out an a-line dress which i did turn my nose up at but once all pulled in i was amazed at how well it fitted and how much better i looked!! It really is down to how you feel in the dress. If you love it, go for it! You may regret it if you leave it and cannot get the dress. Good luck x
Amy Mills - I think that if you're not sure about a dress - then it's not the dress! If it was your perfect dress I think you'd be ? % convinced and you wouldn't think twice.
I'd say look/try on dresses until you find that. And remember that you're never going to reach a scenario when every single person at your wedding loves your dress, because we're all different and that's what makes it fun and interesting :)
Good Luck xx
Lauren Hubbard - Perhaps the ones Youv seen aren't the ones for you. I fell in love with my dress, I went to a dress shop after I found my dress in a diff shop and everyone I tried on I just knew it wasn't what I wanted, I'd found the one and for some stupid reason was still trying on dresses, none of them came close to how I felt in that one. It wasn't what I expected I'd go for but 4 weeks after the wedding everytime I think about it or see a picture with it on i still fall in love with it. My advice, keep looking don't expect your expectations to be what you go for, try every dress you can on and believe me, when you find it you will know. Doesn't matter what everyone else thinks, go have some dress fun! X
Christina Geaves - Wear what u want.. I went looked at dresses with 1 friend... I was not planning on buying anything... I found my perfect dress... and bought it... I did feel awful not having my mum and sister there but in another way they could of persuaded me to something different the friend I took was brutally honest which sometimes is what people need
Victoria Louise Guthrie - I agree if your questioning the dresses then neither is your dress my hubby thinks I'll be in a big bling dress and that's what I always thought I would be wearing but it's not I fell for a princess dress with lace he will get a bit of a shock to not see me with all bling but never changed my mind I know my dress is my dress I brought it in 2015 get married in 8 months and still love my dress
Emmy Wilson - Go with your gut. Forget what other people "see" you getting married in - what do YOU see yourself getting married in?? What makes you feel like a bride? Regardless of what dress you choose, it's unlikely it'll be to everyone's taste, but everyone will think you look beautiful if you're wearing a dress you feel you look radiant!!!
Nicole Hunt - You can guess what everyone is going to say with this one.
It is YOUR dress! No one else's! Your close family can have their options but ultimately it's yours and you have to feel comfortable in what YOU choose!
Hope this helps. Good luck! X
Natalie Walker - It's a cliche but you'll know when you've found 'the one'. I found mine last weekend and it's the complete opposite of what I thought I'd go for but I felt amazing in it! That's how I knew that dress was for me ? I also bought the sample dress from the shop to save money, it needs alterations but the dress is in mint condition ? Go with your gut and ignore other people's opinions and expectations ?
Adele Phillips - My dress is plain plain plain plain, I tried on a dress full of bling which everyone loved but I wanted plain. So I got plain. Your relatives don't have to wear it! Also, chafage from too much embellishment ouch!
Hannah Louise Sluman - I designed my own dress. It was not traditional at ALL. when my dad saw it he laughed and cried at the same time saying how it was so delightfully me. To give you an idea, it has a white corset top with a green skirt (three tiers) that goes to the knee, and I wore it with DMs. I love it. And it wasn't traditional at all, so pft! Wear what you love :D
Rachel Barter - I went with the one I loved and if my mum sister etc liked it too then that's a plus at the end of the day as long as you love it and feel like it's YOUR dress then go for it no matter if it's a good deal or not x
Joanne Doyle - But the dress YOU love! You'll be wearing it all day and looking back at photos for the rest of your life! Trust me you'll regret it if you get one you're not in love with
Georgina Newcomb - I think if either was 'the one' you wouldn't have walked away without buying them. I think you need to look some more, try on more dresses
Louise Darling - Personally I'd say keep looking. If you are doubting it then you haven't found "the one" when you find it you will just know! Xx
Niamh Cannon - Sounds to me that you've found dresses you love but not "The One". Keep looking- it's much like finding your husband, when you know, you know!
Laura Hutchinson - You said it yourself 'the dress you love'. The decision is made as far as in concerned :) I'm sure your family will love whatever you choose x
Elaine Thorpe - U r the one who wil wear the dress. Pick the dress you lov
When both sides see how happy ad beautiful you look. That's it. Stop trying to please others it's you ad yr dress not theresy
