I purchased my dress 5 days ago. It was one I fell in love with in pictures and the first I tried on in the store. I didn’t have an Aha! moment. I thought it was comfortable and okay at first, decided to set it aside, and continued to try on dresses. I tried on maybe 10 and then went back to the first dress. I still liked it on me and, like I said, felt extremely comfortable in it. I was with my mom and sister. I’m not sure if they were pressuring me to get the dress or if I ended up talking myself into it because it was a fabulous price. All weekend I felt semi sick to my stomach. I barely tried any on! Should I have continued to shop? Should I have had some magical moment? Have any of you experienced this before? I never make decisions well…I’m always very indecisive. Help!

jsicam: I felt exactly the same as you when I got my dress, some months later I decided I needed to keep looking for that ‘right’ dress and after trying on many more, I finally found it and I was so relieved. The dress needs to be right!!

When I was shopping for my wedding dress years ago, I don’t think I really had that “Aha!” moment. In fact, I had my dad choose my dress in the end, because I couldn’t choose between my top 3 choices, haha. I think finding the “right” dress for each person is different! If you’re not feeling it, then you should likely keep trying on dresses and see if you can find one that gives you your moment! Could you call the store you purchased your dress at and ask them if there’s anything you can do?

jsicam: I went to Davids Bridal and tried on probably 20 dresses. Some were pretty but there wasnt that fell in love with moment. So I went online after then tried to figure out the actual designers I liked. I liked the Stella York collection but there was something about this Alfred Angelo dress. So I wanted to look at the store that had Stella York first. I went there but pretty much looked around and didnt try on one dress because nothing jumped out at me. So I go to the second store. Found 3 dresses, the second one I let myself try on was the Alfred Angelo dress that I secretly hoped was as great on as it was online. I started crying and did the “oh my god this is beautiful” and didnt want to take it off and really had no desire to put on the 3rd dress but I did it anyways. Needless to say it didnt compare. I actually worry that after the dress is done in December I will end up convincing myself that its okay to just “get used to wearing it” and ill be prancing around the house in it and Fiance will catch me. I looked a lot online when it came to rings and dresses but both times I got fixated on that one ring and this one dress. I was definitely a skeptic and thought that I would end up with a pretty ring or pretty dress but not one that I felt so strongly about. That was the long story.. short story- keep looking you will find it.
