I was super excited for my dress couldnt wait for it. Then i made a big mistake... i took 15 dresses tossed them in a mix and had my dress in there. I asked him to look st them tell me what he likes about them.

Ladies dont ever do this !!! He looked thru them quickly but said the dress i have is hideous. I said nothing kept cool.
A week later he found out what i did and how i know what he said. He said keep it not to dare sell it. I did have it for sale. He said it look great cant judge on some other person. However now my dress comes in next week. I really could care less. It doesnt matter now if I wear that or tshirt and shorts.Is it possible to be happy with it now. Just sucks cuz i paid 2200.00 for it and now id be fine wearing a 20.00 outfit.

    I’m so sorry your feeling this way! Have you tried the dress on since? Maybe putting it back on will remind you why you chose it in the first place. I’m sure it’s absolutely beautiful on, but you feeling your best is most important. Maybe keep it listed for sale and search a few places for backup?

    Girl! Why oh why did you do this? I’ve seen brides say they’ve done this & it backfires!
    What made you fall in love with your dress in the 1st place? What accessories will you pair with it?

    Put your dress back on. You bought it because you loved it and felt beautiful. You could imagine yourself walking down the aisle in it.

    Additionally, he's not going to recognize it as the same dress that he saw on the model/in the picture - because *you're* going to be in it and marrying him. You could even tell him you got a new dress - I promise most men don't know the difference.

    I love my dress, but based off of the mode I don't think I would have ever picked it to try on based off of the photo. I say that to say, when you pick up your dress and try it back on you will remember why you loved and picked your dress.

    What does skinny have to do with anything? You're going to look beautiful in a beautiful dress.

    I’ve probably watched every single say yes to the dress episode and FH is sometimes present when I watch. He often says he doesn’t like the style of dress that I choose for our ceremony but I really don’t care. It’s my dress, I feel beautiful in it and if he doesn’t like it then he doesn’t like it.


    Of course we want to look our best for our SO, but I want to look best for me most of all. If you’re not happy with yourself you can’t expect anyone else to make you happy. And dresses always, always look different on the models. You will look beautiful. Don’t let a couple of yards of fabric put a damper on a great day.

    I’m confused. Do you not like the dress anymore simply because your FH’s comment? I suppose if you wanted to ensure he’d like it, he should have gone with you to purchase it. Unfortunately, I think you set yourself up because if you walked down the aisle with the dress on, he would’ve said it was the most beautiful dress he ever saw. I wouldn’t worry about it. If you love the dress, then rock it. He’s marrying you and not the dress. Plus he’ll think you look gorgeous either way.

    That is SO BEAUTIFUL!!


    “Skinny” has nothing to do with anything. You got it in your size and it’s going to look great.
