I had dress regret big time.  I was getting frusterated with finding a dress.  I finally found one that I thought that I loved and bought it.  Then I saw a dress online at DB that I couldn’t stop thinking about.  I ended up going to try it on and fell in love with it so I bought it.  I am really glad that I did because Darling Husband said that I looked amazing on our wedding day.  When I showed him the other dress he didn’t like it as much as the second one.

I had dress regret because when I chose my dress, I just wanted to be done with the dress shopping (I hate shopping).  Eventually, I came around and started liking it again (never loving it), then I had to sell it because it got too big.  I ended up getting a dress that looked totally different, and now I’m totally in love with my second dress.

I went through the EXACT same thing! Took 2 weeks to feel better about the dress. I purchased a blush colored one, and the color is freaking me out just because it’s not “pure white” (which is silly anyway). When I put it on, it feels “right” even though the color is untraditional. I am pretty pumped to get married in it, and I bet you will feel the same way about yours!!

I regretted my dress and bought a different dress. I’m glad I bought the true dream dress which is sooo different from my original dress.

I am going through this right now! I bought the this dress


then i freaked out because the ivory looks yellow and I was worried people would comment about my boobs and stuff (even though on me it didnt show anything) and I was worried about sitting would the boobs open up and look bad in pictures! So after a week I changed my order to the WTOO mimi but I have seen so many brides in this dress now I am worried I wont like it when it comes in. I kind of wish I would have stuck with my original decision but it is too late now. I am also worried that the wtoo taffeta will look cheap compared to the Mikado on the Jim Hjelm dress. I think I would have looked original in the jim hjelm one because I havent seen anyone where it. But I am trying to make my decision work in my head but I am constantly looking for different dresses because I am stressing.

I feel the same exact way. I liked a lot of dresses but never really loved a specific one. We went dress shopping 5 or 6 times and at the last store, I just made a decision because of timelines – I was tired of shopping and felt like my mom and sister were annoyed. It is nothing I dreamed of (tulle, lace) but was really flattering on my figure. I am putting alot of pressure on myself for this to be the PERFECT, best ever dress! I am really stressed about it and am going at noon to try it on again – if i dont like, I will try to sell it and buy another. Best of luck to you.

@Hocwing2:  Seriously I think you are me haha I am experienceing the same thing! I feel like everyone is annoyed with me. My sister says I am not trying on the right dresses (she has not been able to go to any store with me because of conflicting schedules). But I have tried on everything!! The only thing I havent would be very vintage dresses but I can find those anywhere honestly.  I just settled for a dress and I keep trying to convince myself its one dress not that big of a deal but I know it really is to me and it is like an internal struggle. I havent even told my mom yet because I feel like she will kill me!! Let me know what happens for you!
