Awww I feel you; I always see new inspiration for dresses…but I just remind myself of how fabulous the dress I picked out is, and my desire to try on a million more dresses subsides!

I saw my dress online at Davids and bookmarked it.  When I went into the store, they gave me the catalogs to see what I liked.  Without realizing it, I picked the same dress in both the regular sizes and the plus sizes (I didn’t know they were the same dress).  I guess I knew at that point that that was the dress for me.  Good luck with your decision.

rol769 – Hah! I’m glad your decision became clear so easily! For me, I love my dress, but I love looking at other dresses too 🙂

My wedding was 3 months ago and I loved my dress, but I still drool over dresses I see (here on WB, on TV, in magazines, etc).  🙂

What’s weird is that my style continues to evolve, so now there are new dresses that I wish I’d get an opportunity to wear… Oh well…  I loved my dress.

My dream dress was a Jim Hjelm dress, but 1) Nobody sells Jim Hjelm in Hawaii and 2) Knowing the prices, I most likely wouldn’t have been able to fit it into my budget.

Every time I see the dress I get sad, but then remember my dress and love it.  But there will always be a special place in my heart for that Jim Hjelm dress.

I was lucky enough to be able to afford my dream dress- it helped that I only let myself look at websites i could afford! Also, I looked at SO MANY dresses before picking mine! Now I try to limit my exposure to other dresses, besides weddingbee boards, giving advice. But every time I drive past a bridal salon, a piece of me wants to go in and try on more! So I totally relate to you 🙂
