So I am BRAND new to weddingbee but I am hoping that the bees can make me feel better…My “planned elopement” isn’t until Ocotber however I am a planner be nature and profession so I’ve been planning since before I got engaged. I have ordered my dress, bought several items from etsy and ebay (jewelry, flip flops, garter, bride tank top, etc., etc.)..basically amost done planning since it will just be my FI and I eloping on St. John USVI and then honeymooning. I am having buyers remorse on almost everything I have purchased..totally doubting myself. Is it normal to doubt your purchases? Maybe I just need to stop looking at other dresses, etc.! Would attach a pic of dress but haven’t figured out how to do that yet

Welcome to the Hive! I questioned everything I bought also. I think what helped me was printing out my “vision” for the wedding and having it in my purse with me at all times. I used almost everything I bought, and I loved how it all looked together in the end, but I had to do mock ups and keep referring back to my pics for reassurance.

@tksjewelry: Thank you for your quick reply..totally stressing and driving everyone around me crazy 🙂 so really helps to have some perspective from other brides. I think I uploaded a pic correctly..not my best pic but you get the idea..
I am trying to keep eveything in mind according to my vision and I think in the end all will be ok but in the meantime I am still doubting my picks. Just feel like I jumped the gun on buying some things and should have looked around more..this too shall pass..lol

Looks great on you. You are not alone in doubting your choices. I still can’t decide between a few garters on etsy because I know I’ll have remorse if I don’t think it through completely. It’s just crazy for me to STILL be thinking about it. So I applaud you for making the decision and being done with it. Keep doing that.. It’s great to just decide and not think about it. It will drive you bananas if you do!

Your dress looks lovely on you. doubts are normal – with so many choices out there. but I’m sure that with your choice of a dress, your other choices will be just as fabulous.
