Hi all, I keep thinking about my wedding and after getting my pictures back I just feel really disappointed with my appearance. Every time I see another bride on social media I always feel terrible at how I looked compared to them. I know that’s not what matters— I had the best day with my Husband but now looking back I just get so upset whenever I think about it. Anyone else experience this?

    No, I stay off of pintrest plus I never wear any makeup while 99.9% of brides do.

    Social media can have insecurity impacts on people. I recommend you limit your exposure

    Nearly everyone is their own worst critic as far as appearances.

    Aw, anything in particular that's bothering you? Dress, hair?

    We haven't gotten our full wedding album back yet and I am absolutely petrified that I'm going to hate how I look in like 75% of the pictures -- but that's only because I had a super stressful day and I know you could read the anxiety on my face.

    Try not to let what you see on social media affect your self image. You have to remember that much of social media is fake. I am sure you looked absolutely gorgeous. And I bet your husband thought you were the most beautiful woman on the planet. That is really what matters.

    Totally agree with everyone! We are our own worse critics & social media does not help!

    Yes i definitely agree with everyone here! I do the same thing to myself when I look at social media. Take breaks from looking at it, it is really helpful! Also social media is mostly fake and toxic!

    Honestly, I'm sure you looked beautiful. We are our own worst critics! It's easy to criticize yourself. Sometimes our expectations are too high too and it's completely unattainable because we want to look "perfect." I know it's hard, but try not to let it consume you.
