Aww I’m sorry!  Have you tried your dress on recently (or a sample)?  Sometimes all it takes is another in-person look at the dress to overcome dress regret.

If you’re absolutely sure you’d much rather have the other dress, talk to the store to see how much it would cost to order it in time for your wedding, and if it’s financially doable then go for it!  You can sell your other dress later if you want, or be a two-dress bride.  (Wear one dress to the ceremony and the other to the reception.)

Ugh, I hate dress regret. I am also feeling a bit wobbly right now – I think I have total wedding dress burnout. It seems just plain cruel to make a budding bride wait so long between choosing and wearing her dress. I am sure this is a cunning ploy by salons and designers to make brides buy two dresses due to indecision. The whole process stinks!

Could you post pictures of yourself in your dress, so we could all tell you the lovely things you need to hear right now? Smile

I am currently in a similar situation and I know it could be really upsetting.  Personally, I think you look like a knockout in your dress.  I feel like maybe you would find that the 2nd dress won’t flatter you quite as well if you tried it on.  Good luck but seriously: you look hot.

What about wearing one for the reception and one for the ceremony? :/

 

You look HOTTT in the first dress! I don’t get which one you already bought, though.

I feel like your dress is beautiful on you and different. I feel like the dress you think you’d rather have has been done a million times.

 

Something about the lines and neckline of your dress is very timeless to me and I think you look amazing!

I absolutely love that dress, and it is extremely flattering on you. You also look extremely happy with it in the picture, and you look comfortable. If I were choosing one for me, I would go with the one you purchased over the one you have “fallen in love with,” although they are both gorgeous. I feel like the second dress has too much fabric and you would be tripping over it.

That said, if you don’t like the original dress anymore, then you don’t like it. You need to wear what you feel best in. Check with the store to see if they have a return policy on your original. Sometimes they charge you a restocking fee, but will take it back as long as it has not been altered. 

There are so many websites out there that brides use to sell dresses they just don’t want. I bought my dress from oncewed.com from a bride who had decided that the FIFTH dress she had purchased was the one! Do you have enough money to front for the dress you really like while you wait for someone to purchase the original dress back from you?

The dress you bought is a LOT more dance-able than the other one you saw.  You’d be dragging around a lot of skirt all day in that second dress!  Personally, I think being able to move about and enjoy your own party is very important!

I’m having the same problem….it is not a good feeling.  I want to love it so bad but didn’t like it today when I picked it up, I think I’ll fall back in love though.  Hopefully!  I’m such a people pleaser and don’t want to upset my mom, who bought my dress.  But it’s not like she made it and/or picked it out!  She (like  your parents I’m sure) just wants me to be happy.  Whatever decision you decide make, just make sure you’re doing it for you!! Good luck!

I actually prefer the dress you bought over the dress you saw at the store. The top of your dress now is very similar to the other. The only difference is the store dress has pick-ups on the skirt, which I am not a big fan of anyway.  The pick-ups require A LOT of skirt to look good and I think it would look overwhelming on your petite frame. When I look at the picture you posted, I see only the dress. I don’t even see the model because it is hard to find her with all that material. As a bride, you want to wear the dress, not have the dress wear you.

I think you made the right choice. Your dress now is classic, timeless and hugs your curves in all the right places.

I think the dress you bought is gorgeous!  You look great in it and I wouldn’t change anything about it!!!  I can see why you feel for the second dress though!  It is beautiful, but your dress is just as beautiful!
