    I am getting nervous too! Abou everything really. my dress is pink and I worry that I should have gotten a dress in ivory. I’m also scared that the dress will be too heavy and hot if its  a hot day. I just keep reminding myself that I picked the dress for a reason!

    I’m nervous for two reasons: 1) it hasnt been altered yet and that scares me and 2)I’m scared I’m going to get hot and sweaty in it 😡

    I’m not nervous about my choice. I’m nervous that the actual gown will not fit and give the same shape as the sample. Mine has an internal corset and a specific waist cut that is different than 99% of gowns I’ve seen or tried on. But when I tried on mine in the boutique, it gave me a different overall shape in the waist. I’m hoping when mine arrives and is finished being altered, it will have my desired shape.

    I’m getting nervous because it is supposed to be shipping in the next couple weeks, and I really just want to SEE it again, and try it on, and then get the alterations over with so it’s off the checklist!  Man, it’s been months since I’ve tried on a wedding dress.

    I’m nervous that it’s not going to fit correctly, even after alterations; that it will be unflattering; and that it will be too big to bustle and I’ll be miserable wearing it.

    I just found out I’m pregnant about a week ago. And I’m super nervous about getting in to my dress when I’m 5 months pregnant. I’m literally losing sleep over it. I still love my dress, just hope it fits & doesn’t cost a fortune to get it let out.

    I am totally nervous! I worry that it is too plain and that I could have chosen better, but I know in my heart of hearts the dress reflects me as a person, and will be what my FI will be happiest to see me in 🙂

    I’m getting really nervous now with five weeks to go. I think its a lot of pressure to be under as there’s so much expectation from everyone else about the dress. It’s hard not to get swept along with it all.

    I have about 3 1/2 weeks left to go.. I am definitely nervous!  Thankfully it’s a corset, so it’ll fit fine, I just worry I’m not going to like it when I put it on the day of!

    Too late now!!  haha  🙂

    I’m a little nervous.  I bought the sample dress and I know that the stock photos are made to make the dresses look fantastic and show off every minute detail…but I sometimes look at the picture of the dress with me in it and think “It will never look as crisp and bright as the stock photo.” Then I remind myself that this is my dream dress, I will look perfect on my wedding day and I need to stop over thinking everything.

    I’m worried about getting alterations done in time – if it comes in on the “no later than” date, I’ll have exactly one month!

    I’m ggetting nervous because I’m having mine custom made overseas, where our wedding will be. AWe figured it may be a little impratical to ship it back and forth for fitting. So I’m only going to be able to fit it less than 2 weeks before the wedding. I wasn’t nervous about it at first but I made the mistake on reading up on last minute dress horror stories.

    I had dress regret and with 3 months to go to my wedding– I got another dress! It was honestly because of Wedding Bee, haha! I saw so many gorgeous gowns on here, I started to hate my dress, so I made the switch and I couldn’t be happier! It was an expensive decision, so I would only do it if you can afford another dress; most dress shops will not refund you for your first dress, even if it never left the shop and was never altered (my situation).

    There are so many ways to dress up dresses with accesories– sashes, jewelry, boleros, maybe you could play around with those?
