i said yes to the dress 1

i said yes to the dress 2
I said yes to the dress! I'm on the fence on if I should get the veil in the picture or not. My family said it takes away from the beauty of the dress. Also my family wanted me to choose another dress and they weren't really happy with my dress choice which is making me second guess if I chose the right dress. How do you guys think look in my dress?
Also how many dresses did you try on before you found the one?

    I think your dress is beautiful! It’s all about what you want to wear on your wedding day. I do see how the veil can take away from your dress. You can try on diff veils and diff lengths to see what you like the most with the dress.

    I tried on about a few dozen dresses and unfortunately, I never found the one. Fh and I talked and we decided to go a very casual route bc we both agreed that a formal wedding was not "us."

    Thank you! and yes I'm going to look at different veils, my consultant told me that the veil in the picture was a match for that specific dress.

    A formal wedding isn't for everyone, but I'm glad that you guys were able to come to an agreement. It probably was less stressful.

    I think it looks amazing on you! I went to 2 different bridal shops when o was trying on dresses. I didn’t find one at the first shop, but at the second I immediately knew it was the dress when I put it on. How many dresses did you try on total?

    Congratulations!! Beautiful dress! I agree with previous comments, try on a few other veils. I love the detail on the one in the picture, but if you think it takes away from the dress detail, maybe try on a few veils that are a little more plain so that the detail on your dress stands out?

    That dress is gorgeous! I honestly think the veil is nice too, almost like an extension of your dress but you don't have to bustle it you just take it off.
    If you feel glamorous and beautiful in it and it fits your style/ budget, GO FOR IT.
    I made my own Franken dress, so clearly trying on lots wasn't my solution. 😂

    Beautiful!! I’m team veil allll the way. My dress is a similar silhouette and open back. And you’ll take it off after pictures anyway, so most of the time you wouldn’t have it on.

    Thank you! I was thinking about only wearing the veil for the ceremony and taking it off for the reception, and lol.

    Thank you! That's true. I'm not changing my dress for the reception, so people would have a chance to see the dress without the veil.

    I think your dress is beautiful on you and I love the veil. The key is that you have to love it and don’t listen to other people. Maybe try on a few more to make this is it. I just went this week with my daughter and she tried in 8 dresses and picked her dress in 48 minutes. She just knew when she put it on and we all cried that it was the one. I hope you find the perfect dress for you.
