I see so many posts about this topic, so I was wondering if almost everyone experiences this at one point or another…
My experience: Bought my dress at DB the first (and only) time I went dress shopping. Loved it. Went home and had started to feel a little regret because I wanted a white dress and it only came in ivory. Went back to pick it up after it got cleaned (it was off the rack), and fell in love all over again.
How about you?

@LadyBear: Actually, my experience was similar to yours. I bought my dress, and after about a week it sunk in how different that dress was from what I had originally been looking for. There were so many freaking beautiful dresses out there! It wasn’t regret in the sense that I wanted to get a different one, just stress that I should have picked the runner up.
And then I went back to see it later, and each time I fell a little more in-love-again, and then recently I felt so sad when I dropped it off at the alterations shop.

I did too. I bought my dress the first day I went shopping. My (then) fiance got teary-eyed when he saw me in that particular dress, so I bought it (yes, I took Darling Husband shopping with me!). Once my dress got in, I brought it home and kept trying it on and feeling remorseful about it. I felt like a big, white blob! There were no other family members around to reassure me, so I was majorly second-guessing. My husband kept reassuring me that it was beautiful. I hated it up until the moment my alterations were done. Then I was head-over-heels all over again!!

Yes, yes I did. And I wasn’t expecting it either. It’s only when I saw it on a bee’s blog (she called it dress doubt disorder DDD) that I realized it was pretty common.
I picked out my dress the first time I went dress shopping back in the fall. It was totally different from what I had on my “list of favorite dresses”. When I tried it on, and felt emotional, and I could see myself walking down the aisle to marry Fiance with this dress. I was beyond happy about my choice… for a few months. Then, watching too many wedding shows, I started to get doubt…what if my dress looks cheap, what if I sweat through it, what if it’s not comfortable and I look awkward all day, etc. I went through a bunch of on-and-off doubts, until, it actually came in a couple of weeks ago and I tried it on again. I got the same initial love feeling, “it’s perfect for me” and that was that. I’m fine now. Thank goodness because with less than 6 months to go, I have other things that need to get done!

Yep. I bought my dress pretty early on and I started to get antsy while it was being made. Once it came in and I got to try it on again I remembered why I loved it in the first place 🙂
