Just wondering people's thoughts?
daughter has a very pale pink dress for a family wedding next month, although the dress is lovely it makes her look a bit pale and washed out.
i am happy enough to fake tan her but hubby says no!
what are your thoughts? Is 11 too young?
i could take dress back but it was an ordeal finding one she would wear to begin with.

I think 11 is a bit young personally, more like 13 I would be a bit more comfortable doing it. It is up to you though, everyone's different x

Thanks for your opinions Lauren, hubby said 13 too, it's not something I've given alot of thought to but was a bit shocked by hubby's reaction.
I may just return the dress save the drama and look for an alternative.
yes i think too young

What are you looking for? Can we help?

Thanks CP, I was thinking its not really any different from painting her nails but seems my judgement is a tad off, glad I asked, I kinda thought it was H doing his over protective dad bit!
This is the dress Lauren, it's more a nude than pink but she loved the netting underneath. They have it in blue too but not in her size, have been checking daily on the off chance.

It's a lovely dress. I wouldn't say she looks too washed out in it on that photo.

Am I just bring super pernickety then? My mum agreed that she looked "peely wally" as she would say.

Ah I think she looks really sweet in it. I think your over worrying, I don't think I would notice a child looking washed out. It's a lovely dress x

Will she wear her hair down? I think it would look much better with hair on her shoulders, it's only round the back area she looks a little pale x

Her arms and legs have got a lovely colour to them, it's obviously where she's worn a t-shirt and her skin isn't as exposed to the sun that she's a bit paler, but I agree with lauren, if her hair is down, you wouldn't notice this so much.

Yeah plan is to wear her hair down and curly, thanks ladies! I maybe need to take a step back and relax. I'm sure you're right that noone will think that and I'm just over thinking x

Just relax Hun, she looks like a pretty little girl and when she is all ready to go she'll look lovely x

Aww thanks Lauren, I think I worry too much what others will think and you know what family can be like, I just want us all looking our best!

You'll all look fine. What are you wearing?
I agree with the others, I wouldn't use the false tan and she will look lovely.
