    No. There is no such thing as too different. Stop second-guessing yourself and looking at other dresses, or you’ll end up being a two-dress bride. :p Chillax, lady.

    #1 Being different is Great! not bad!

    and a lot of people chose the mermaid style dresses and to be completely honest the only reason I never tried the mermaid style on is because I can’t pull it off – my hips are too big and it makes me feel uncomfortable!

    If you look great in your dress and feel great in your dress – when it comes in in december you will fall in love all over again!!!

    I agree, Chill out, I think the gown is gorgeous. And unless you were wearing an orange camoflauge printed gown with purple feathers, I really don’t think anything is “too” different.

    And now that I said that, I’m almost certain that I will find someone wearing that combo…

    I think it’s lovely, and I think you will love it even more when you see it in December…absence makes the heart grow fonder!

    Crap!  I misread your poll question and voted no, thinking that it was not too different, not that you shouldn’t wear it!  (So I’m the lone dissenter, but only by mistake!)

    It’s a beautiful dress and I’ve seen a lot of other brides on weddingbee with mermaid/fit and flare dresses.  You picked it for a reason–just remember how it made you feel when you first tried it on.

    It doesn’t look unconventional to me at all:  it’s strapless, white, traditional shape, traditional length, common neckline…. If your anxiety is around looking UNLIKE others too much…. well, i wouldn’t worry! If you love it, if you look pretty in it, if you feel good — of course you should wear it.

    Your dress is beautiful and I’m sure you look gorgeous in it! Stop worrying about it. I have also seen a lot of other brides on weddingbee with mermaid/fit and flare dresses.

    A lot of people go through this… but if you loved it before and thought it was right then don’t second guess yourself.

    I think it’s a gorgeous dress!!!

    I don’t see how this dress can be “too different”.  It looks like a bridal gown to me– and a lovely one at that!  If you rock the fit and flare style, I say don’t change it!  And I know it’s hard not to look when every other thread on the WB has pictures of dresses, haha.  ๐Ÿ™‚

    oh my goodness no its gorgeous!  EVERYONE gets this same dress anxiety.  you havent seen the dress in MONTHS, you wont see it for months, and new lines are coming out.  I even doubted my dress, and when I put it on again I fell in love 1000 times over.  Id suggest going abck to teh bridal shop and putting THAT ONE ONLY back on. Youll get the same feeling, trust me

    It is a gorgeous dress, and I agree it’s not unconventional.  Though, in my opinion, there is no such thing as too unconventional!  Then again, I wore several ballerinas tutus as my train ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I was expecting something totally different after your post–I think your dress is very pretty and not all that unconventional.  I know a lot of brides are choosing the mermaid style these days.  I think we all have a little dress anxiety at some point, but if you love your dress, then it’s the right one for you! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Beautiful dress!  I think dress regret is totally normal, but yours is not all that unconventional!
