29 days away and kind of stressed. I’m feeling self-conscious in my dress.

My wedding is 29 days away. I’m waiting on things to arrive and my bustle alteration to be done. I’m having anxiety about how I look in the dress. I have not been able to find a bolero or shrug cover up to go over it. I have bought two and they don’t look good with my dress. The store does not carry my size. I am a size 22. I have an 8 month old baby and have not lost all the weight. I am overweight. I have some blemishes on my skin. I’m running out of money, actually, out of money. I’m excited for the wedding day, and to be married to my fiancé, but am totally done with the planing portion of it, as in I’m tired of chasing after vendors and worrying about finances and how I’ll look in my dress. I know that my fiancé will love how I’ll look and finds me attractive, but I’m just feeling overwhelmed.

    You look beautiful in that dress!! I don't think it needs a bolero with it, it looks more feminine the way that it is! I am also a bit self conscious in my own dress even though everyone tells me they love it. Just remember that your fiance will think you are the most beautiful person he's ever laid eyes on when he sees you walking down the aisle and that is all that matters. Smiley heart

    First off, you look amazing! But I get it. It's stressful, especially with a young baby! If it helps at all, just know that this feeling will pass and you'll look back one day and not stress over it. I'm a size 22 in bridal also! I totally understand the feeling, but I think you shouldn't wear a shrug. You look so good!

    Girl you're perfect the way you are!! that dress makes your curves look bomb and you're smile steals the show! are you planning to wear a necklace at all? I think it would totally streamline your look and pull everything together.

    Remember people are at your wedding because they love YOU and your FH, they could give two craps about what you're wearing!

    Aww, I am so sorry you are feeling this way!! You look great though!! I think we all get self-conscious through this process... not knowing what the dress looks like when it's fit to size, with how we plan to do our hair and makeup, plus accessories.. the downside is never having a chance to see it all together until the actual day of!! It's so nerve racking! But you got this!! And you are going to look FABULOUS!
