On their dress that is..
From the first trip I went shopping for my dress I have had regret and it’s still there.
I have 80 days until my wedding and I go in two weeks for my first fitting and I can’t help but feel like I am settling on this dress I have. Do I like it.. yes. Do I love it.. no.
I am NOT a dress person, so by any means I don’t think I’ll honestly like any dress, but I should atleast love my dress right? I am having a difficult time picturing myself on my big day so I just keep telling myself it’ll be okay but I have this fear that I am going to dread my wedding pictures because of the dress..
Mind you I am plus size and very uncomfortable in my own skin and that plays a huge roll in this feeling I believe. It’s down to where I just don’t care about the dress anymore and I know it sounds harsh but oddily enough I am okay with that because I am not marrying the dress.. I’m marrying my best friend.
So has any other bride had really bad issues and feelings like this and ended up with their dress regardless of how badly they felt about it? If so.. could you post pictures of you on your wedding day? Did you feel completely different about your dress on your special day?

I settled. I bought my dress from a low quality replica site and just wasn’t right (too short, poor fitting, not quite like the photo). I didn’t think I had the time or money to replace it before the wedding and my mom convinced me that it would look fine. I didn’t love the dress, but I figured “what the hell, it’s just a dress” and went on with wedding planning.
After the wedding when I saw the photos I was so sad. The dress looks awful and it’s not at all like I imagined my wedding dress. I don’t have any printed photos of the dress and I still have major regret.
Obviously you’re not me, but based on my experience, my recommendation is to make sure you are really happy with your dress and if not, try to find a way to alter it or buy a new dress that will make you happy. Some cases of dress regret can be solved by trying it on again or minor alterations, so I’d suggest trying those first. If that doesn’t work, consider major alterations (if possible), or look for something preowned, off the rack, or rush ordered. You only get one wedding dress

I am plus sized, and I had a difficult time finding a dress. I definitely feel as if I “settled,” but I did and do love many of the beautiful details of my gown.

I was unconfident and didn’t have any family to go with me.. I also just picked something that I thought was flattering. I didn’t want anything too unique or too different.
If I could go back in time, I would of gone for something like this:
I ended up with this:

I don’t know if i “settled” persay but after watching too much syttd Inwas expecting more of a choirs of angels singing moment. I never did find a dress that changed my life or anything but picked one that everybody said was pretty and I did really like some of the details. The dresses that I had in my mind didn’t start coming out until after my wedding so the ruffles werent quite as prominent as the image I had in my head. It’s rough being such a fashionista that the dressdesigners are behind :p

I am settling. Beacuse of budget. I saw my dream dess… that was 5x my budget. I didn’t get to try it on and left the store almost wanting to cry…
now that I look at my dress in pictures I’m like ugh! I keep hoping its just that the dress doesn’t photograph well.. i feel great in the dress and its beautiful
but you can tell close up how cheap it is and you can’t tell the detail if your too far away it just all looks like a marshmellow.
I took pictures of every other single dress and slept on it this dress I just bought- I think after 20+ dresses you kinda give up.
