    Hi everyone.

    Am really just looking for opinions please. Me and my friends went for a walk and came across a small bridal shop in our local village. So we nipped in, I was looking for bridesmaid dresses and found a few lovely ones at very reasonable prices.. my friend picked out a bridal gown for me to try.. I wasn't looking for myself (evidently as I didn't have the most nicest underwear on or even matching lol ) and it was something I would never pick. However I tried it on n it is honestly my favourite one ive tried on to date.. I dont think I will ever get the feeling that a dress is 'the one' although I couldn't stop smiling and walking around.. it made me feel lovely.. I want to ask everyone there opinions but I do also want to keep it a secret too.. ive showed my mum and obviously my friend/bridesmaid who picked it out.. so I would like to hear your opinions.. the pic is in my album as I dont think I can post it on here. If someone could I would be really grateful..

    Look forward to you opinions and thoughts x

    Your dress is beautiful. You could always go to another bridal shop to see if there are anymore that you'd like to try but I do like that one x

    I really like the shape on you and the material, only thing that I feel is questionable is the neckline, its kind of goes in to the neck like a halter and makes you look a bit broad shouldered , not saying you are just the way the dress neckline is gives that effect.
    Just my opinion.
    Love everything else about it

    Well the lady in the shop said that she can ask the designer to make it removable. . So using press studs I can have the neck line and then take it off later.. which I thought was a really good idea as it would give a different look.x

    I think it is gorgeous and really suits your figure, I also love that they can make the top bit removable, as like you say it will give the dress two completely different looks... so you could have it on for the ceremony and then take it off either for the meal or the evening do

    That looks lovely on you, really suits your shape :-). I agree with Lana about the neckline tho, so if it can be made removable I think I'd go for that and like you say it will give you 2 different looks. And at that price I'd go for it especially if it's the one that you felt the best in xx

    Rr thanks everyone.. I am going shopping in a few weeks time with my mum and mother in law 2 be to two different shops.. so I think if I don't find anything then this may be the one..

    I did try on a lovely one at the national wedding show in Birmingham back in march which I really liked too.. (pics can be found in my album) and I said to myself that if I didnt find anything by this October which compared then I would go back to look at that one again.. its by b3rkate3x brid3 and if you brought it at the show you got 25% off.. but it was too much of a big decision..

    Its all soo confusing lol x

    It looks fabulous on you!

    Doesn't look like it needs too much altering either.

    I'd go for it

    Wow I defiantly think that is the right silhouette on you, I initially thought the neckline didn't do you justice, however I think with your hair and make up done it will look perfect. If your mind keeps wandering back to that one go for it but there is no harm in trying other dresses on too. You're going to look beautiful :) x

    Thanks everyone. . I had no intentions of trying on a dress this is why I don’t have any make up on or even tried to do anything with my hair :/

    I definitely think this is the silhouette I like the most.. I was a bit worried about the neck line and was thinking that it wasn't 'wedding' enough :/

    Thanks linzi-jo for showing you h2b I really needed a male perspective.. I have showed my h2b some of the dresses which I have tried on previously and he hasn't really liked any of them.. I think i am overly worrying about whether he will like my dress or not :/

    All you comments have really boosted my confidence.. I just want to find a dress which does me justice (I have lost over 4 stone on slimming world).

    I think I will go along to two other shops I have planned with my mum and mother in law to be and see if there is anything else if not I may be returning to try this one on again.. shame I didn't get A picture of the back as its lace also with buttons

    I think the idea of the removable neck line is a bonus

    Xx

    4 stone is amazing! If you aren't 100% sure on the neckline keep looking you don't want to get to the day and hate it. You really do look amazing, I know its hard to stop thinking of yourself as the way you were before your weight loss but your figure now is incredible so enjoy it :) x
