Would you rather...have a dress that looks amazing in person but so-so in pictures, or vice versa?

If you had to choose one thing about your dress would it be that it photographs well, or looks amazing in person? Is this something you considered when dress shopping?

    Amazing in person! I want to look my best on my wedding day and for the people we love the most who came to celebrate. A photo is just a photo.

    Probably not a popular opinion, but better in photos. Those will last forever. Also, I'm convinced that on my wedding date I will look SO GOOD that I could wear a potato sack and still be stunning, so maybe I'm not the best person to ask, haha

    Same. There were a few dresses that I tried on that I liked but ultimately decided against because the details that I liked I realized probably wouldn't even really show up in photos, since I was having trouble seeing them in the photos I took when I tried them on. It's also why I decided to keep my dress in the moscato color I tried on instead of ivory, I was worried that the details I loved about it would be lost without that contrast.

    I never really thought about that but I’d prefer amazing in photos. Yes it would be a bummer knowing it only looks soso in person but pictures last forever and I plan on having photos everywhere I can place them!

    Preferably both! If I had to pick, amazing in person. I'm going dress shopping on Sunday so I will keep this in mind! Haha

    That's tough. I guess better in person since I'll be looking at it all night and we aren't going all out for pictures

    Amazing in person. It would be nice to it look amazing in person for years to come, but if I don't feel beautiful on our day, I'm always going to remember that and regret it.
