I think the dress looks great. You can accessorize your dress with a nice sash belt and a nice necklace. You can call the dress shop and ask what kind of dress it is I am sure they would know. I think once you try your dress on again you will love it just like the first time you tried it on. I think its common for people to feel like they have dress regret but keep in mind there was a reason you said yes in the first place.

I think your dress is beautiful! I recently went through dress regret and it has to do mostly with the fit. It’s one size to small (preowned) so once it fits I’m sure I’m going to be thrilled! I think once your dress is tailored you will be thrilled too!

FutureMrsTillison2015:  It’s really important to remember that bad pictures in poir lighting with dress that’s not properly fitted will be wayyyy different than the real deal. Even my original trying on pics of the dress I wore are just “meh” but on the day I felt like a million bucks! 

Have you been back to try it on again to remember why you loved it?

I have to say, you don’t look happy in the picture.The style seems to really emphasize your hips.  Your figure seems to be a lot like mine. I’m somewhat shortwaisted with narrow shoulders and wide hips.

For me, I find an empire waist stiye works best or something with a natural waist and no detail across the tummy/hip area.

 I think you haven’t found your dream dress yet.  I say, take a trusted friend and go shopping again (are you frends with a “fashionista”?) Try on heaps of different styles and let your friend give you objective feedback.

Its not my style, but its lovely on you.  My only reservation would be that detail across the hips.  Phone them up and ask?  For future reference, I would not buy a dress after only one try.  I am going back to look at my favourite for second try tmw and they will take my measurements, but even then I will sleep on it for a couple of days.

I love your dress on you – I think you look great! I do agree that you may want to look into accessories for your dress – maybe a sash, or try on some different veils.  All of this being said, if you’re truly not feeling it when your dress gets in, then you should definitely look around for something else. 🙂  We don’t want you to be unhappy with your dress on your wedding day!

I love your dress, and once alterations are done and you add a sash I think the dress will look amazing on you.

I think the dress looks great. I picked my dress at the second shop I went to and I felt the same way initially. I kept flip flopping about loving it and just feeling ok about it. My seamstress made it look better than I ever thought it could and when I tried it on at my second fitting, those feelings of regret went away completely. Make sure you have a good seamstress. They can fix anything and it will end up looking just the way you want it to. Best of luck!

I think a style that draws the eye upward might work well for you. Posting some suggestions.

FutureMrsTillison2015:  It’s a beautiful dress! I think to make the top a bit more flattering you might consider altering the neckline so that it’s a less severe sweetheart. Imagine just cutting the tops of the sweetheart down a little, but still in a sweeping sweetheart angle. I think it might draw the eye more to your face.

First of all, it is a beautiful dress and I don’t think you should have any regrets until you see it on yourself after alterations. When the dress is too big it tends to look different and you start doubting why u fell in love with it in the first place. But i honestly feel that after it’s altered you are going to see how beautiful it looks on you 🙂 dont have regrets darling. I think you are going to make a stunning bride 😉
