    Hell yeah I have! I had 4 dresses at one point. My issue has mostly been my FH’s family… they want me in something really traditional and “bridal” where I want something a bit more unpredictable that suits my personality. I’m down to two dresses now and am having both altered for a last min decision – my wedding is in three weeks.

    I know I’m not the only one – but I wish my dress experience was more of a fairy tale than a sh*t show! 🙁

    @Obow:  Too funny “shit show”  My FI and I were just saying that and how to avoid it for our wedding.   I too have dress regret x2 but I’m all out of $. I said if I win the lottery I’m getting a third gown.

    I was having wishy-washy dress regret when I first purchased my dress but I’m over it.

     

    Whenever the thought of regret started creeping into my head I just thought “Nobody cares – I’ll still be beautiful and I picked this dress for a reason- this is not that big of a deal.”

     

    Now I’m pretty much over it.

    I bought 2 dresses… and am on the verge of buying a third because I am stressing about both of them. I have fittings for both next week, and if I am still stressed, I know I will end up with a third. 🙁

    I brought my first dress and immediately regretted it. Brought a second dress…had a few wobbles about it not being the right one….but every time it’s physically on me I fall in love all over again and KNOW its my dress. 

     

    It sucks tho… So much feeling of uncertainty drives me nuts!

     

    i tried mine on again yesterday so iIm all excited as I’m a million percent sure its the right one for me 🙂 yay!

    @lil_possum:  No 3 selling or changing now only 3 weeks left.  It is a nice gown I just have to try to focus more on our marriage instead of trying to make the wedding perfect.

    I purchased 3 dresses! I wore the 3rd dress to my wedding. Currently selling the first one in a bridal resale shop and the 2nd one is just sitting in my son’s closet.
