Did I make a mistake? D: HELP!!!!!!!!

I got my dress back today.  It fits like a glove, the lenght is perfect, and I was totally in love.


When my friend took a picture for me to send to my cousin out of state, I realized there was something wrong.


Now, I'm not exactly a skinny mini....I'm very curvy, and a little chubby.  That's not the problem.  The problem is that I have linebacker shoulders.  And the size of the girls doesn't make them look any smaller.  When I see the dress in person it's very flattering, but in pictures I have massive body builder shoulders.  I don't look feminine at all....everything is perfect but my shoulders.  I was had to have straps, because the girls are quite large, and have a mind of their own.  Every strapless dress I tried on wouldn't stay on.  So I got these twist straps with a V neck....I just....I'm devestated.  Is there aything I can do to minimize my shoulders? When my hair and makeup is actually done (I'm really sick, no makeup, hair in a mess) will it look better?  Will wearing a veil disguise it a little?  I've always been so self concious of my shoulders, and now, in my wedding dress, it's the only thing that's not perfect.  My wedding is in March...It's too late to get a new dress because I already altered it.  It's so bad I'm actually considering ordering a different dress and just letting it be a little long.  But I don't want to waste the money I already spent on the dress, even though I got a great deal.  I'm so heartbroken....I'm probably overreacting but seriously, this is the most important dress of my life.  I'm totally and completely desperate. HELP! What can I do!?

It is beautiful on you! I know how you feel though I don't like my shoulders and arms. Like you said, you just need to embrace it. You are beautiful and everyone at that wedding is going to think so too! It is the perfect dress for you. You have the right figure it for it. It fits in all the right places.
