@MsGinkgo:  Oooh, what a pretty dress!! I love the light, flowing layers and the twisty frayed bits at the bottom. I adore things like that!! And once the hips are altered to fit you better, it will be super flattering and lovely on you!

ETA: I would definitely replace the belt that comes with it though. I think a blush or other pastel color, wide silk ribbon belt would look amazing, as would a belt like this (from BHLDN):

@MsGinkgo:  It is totally normal and on your big day you will feel amazing and will laugh at the idea that you questioned your decision. I promise!

As for the pulling at the hips have you checked with a seamstress to have it let out?

@MsGinkgo:  I think what you are feeling is normal. Just remember, you LOVED it when you bought it, and it wasn’t a quick decision – you tried it on three times and still loved it. So continue to love it! 🙂 It looks great on you – you made the right choice!

@MsGinkgo:  Ah so problem solved! It is a beautiful dress. When you are all dolled up you will realize exactly why you bought it.

I love how light and airy it looks! Very flattering. 

I’m sure you made the right choice, you did try it on 3 times. I think it’s completely normal to think that there could be another dress out there, but honestly you are rockin’ this dress!

@MsGinkgo:  BHLDN has a variety of extremely pretty ribbon belts, but they are what I think is obscenely expensive for just a belt! One could make something like that belt, or others they have, for $25 and some silk fabric, silk ribbon, and beads. 🙂

@MsGinkgo:  This is completely normal, I have gone in and out of dress regret with my dress too.  Once you have the proper size and laterations done you will love!  I had huge dress regret when stock photos were finally released of my dress.  They were horrible.

I went to our new DB UK store specifically after seeing this dress online and tried the dress on. I really liked it but was put off by my friend not liking the dress and the way it was finished.  I think because it is a bit unusual some people aren’t sure.  I have to say that seeing you in yours makes me want to go back and try that one on again!

Here is a pic of me in the dress if it helps:
