Feeling blah about 2nd Dress fitting...(and engagement shoot previews!)

So today was my second dress fitting. i thought my dress was coming home with me, but i guess they need to adjust the bustles a bit. I really wanted to feel bridal and special and really wished my girl friends could have come with me... i needed the enthusiasm! But my mother, god mother and her godmother came with instead. My godmother had not seen me in the dress before. So after some fussing (wrong size petticoat) i manage to get in my dress. i step outside in my shoes which also arrived, and i didnt get much of a responce from anyone. i mean mom has seen the dress on now like 3 times so i guess her responce was to be expected, she was fussing with the dress and stuff. (fluffing it out.) my mother's god mother has also seen me in the dress once (whether she remembers or not) and pretty much smiled and approved... i was just disappointed with my god mother's responce... she just didnt seem to have one. she said it was simple and pretty and then was fussing with her phone. 

So i decided since i was there that we finally needed to decide on a hair piece, since i was all dressed up, had my veil and my necklace and dress on... so they all picked out a hair comb which was beautiful! but after wearing it for a while i was afraid that you wouldnt see it, only at certain angles. I've loved the headband look for a while now so i wanted to try a hair band on. the lady of the shop picked one out for me and i tried it on, and decided thats what i liked better, it made me feel sparkly and happy and kind of princess like. So i had a very brief moment of feeling bridal staring back at myself in the mirror. Everyone else just seemed disapointed with my going with the headband...and i guess that was the final straw to my buzz kill. i wanted to be happy and excited that my look was finally coming together... why wasnt anyone else happy for me? :( I mean its even affecting me now that i think i dont like the headband cause the pearls are too big? bulky? i dunno... So i'm sharing with you girls because i want some happiness and enthusiasim! (and to make it better i finally got some preview shots from my e-shot and will share at the end of this... but please tell me what you think!)

So the hair piece everyone loved (i loved it too, but i wanted my hair piece to be noticed... so i didnt like that you can only really see it from one angle)

and then the hair band, (note my lack of enthusiasm... i was trying to teach mom how to use my phone as well as trying to chat with people... but really i was just upset that no one seemed very enthusiastic about it.)

A brief moment of happiness

and the final look, before i finally took it all off... (again i have such a non enthusiastic look... i dont know why i feel kind of blah about things at the moment)

I realise now i didnt take pics of my shoes. hahaha! So tell me ladies.... what do you think? is it too much? are the pearls in the hair band funky? do you like it? 

....so check the reply for some non-depressed pics from my e-shoot preivews... but seriously tell me what you think about my look!

Oh, i am sorry that the people you brought with you were not very helpful. Sometimes the people we need to pick us up actually are the ones who make us feel worse. Thats why you have PW.

But, I like the pearl headband i think it looks better than the hair comb.Get the one you want/like.And you look so pretty with the look altogether.  Your engagement pictures are beautiful you cant tell that your feeling under the weather you both look really happy. I love the second one the best.

Your day is not to far away try to focus on what makes you happy.

 I agree with zeuster.

The pearl band is very pretty and your engagement photos are lovely (I also love the second one!)

Your day is going to be great, you have put a lot of work into making it special and it really will be xxx

If you like both you could always wear the head band for the ceremony and then change from the headband to the hair piece for the reception...try not to let anyone bring you down during this time.  Everyone around you may not be as excited as you are during this process.

I remember when I was planning, my family couldn't visualize everything about my wedding/reception vision but once they saw how the ideas and DIY items came together they were very impressed and enjoyed every minute of it.  Your idea of what you should look like and how your event should be is what matters to you and your FI. 

BTW I LOVE your engagement photos...this is my fav!

 Love the pearl headband!!! The ladies are right, and it's kind of just how it is. Nobody will be as enthusiastic as you, but that doesn't mean they aren't ecstatic for you. But your look is beautiful! And amazing e-pics!!

 Thanks so much ladies! I knew you were the ladies to turn to for some uplifting advice. I know not everyone is as excited as me but a little enthusiasm couldn't hurt. Lol. I guess I'm the type of person who feels silly getting all hyped up by myself and feeds off of others emotions. :P I just need a bridal rush or something. Lol

The headband is fantastic!  I like it much better than the other hairpiece.  Your dress is gorgeous and you look great in it!  I'm sorry they weren't more enthusiastic for you, I am sure when the day comes and they see the whole vision come together and you are wearing the only white dress around you will get the reaction you are hoping for!  Next time you go for a fitting, make sure you explain to those going with you how disappointed you were this last time and how you feel like you need the boost.  I am sure they will give you the support you need, there is nothing wrong with asking for it.   BTW, your E-pics are gorgeous!

First I have to say, you look gorgeous and if I were there you would have heard me gasping and shrieking like a girl (which I don't do often). The pearl headpiece looks stunning, especially from that front view, which I think is the look you are going for. I say stick with your gut, this isn't about making them happy it's about you and your DH!

 

Also LOVE your e-pics!

 Thanks ladies! I guess I'm just entering a change phase in my life and I'm second guessing everything. We did but the headband... But like I said in second guessing moving out, living with him, for ever. Like will it last? Will our stupid arguments send me over the edge... But then we have wonderful moments and then I think everything happens for a reason and everything will be ok. Am I crazy? Cold feet? Normal?

 Totally normal! I'm pretty sure I had dress regret about 67,945 times along with second guesses on just about everything I planned. Its normal! That said, go with your gut, everything is going to be great because in the end really it's about you marrying the love of your life!
