So I bought my dress too quickly, it was on the first shopping trip! It was on sale, and I did like it, so I didnt have a chance to sleep on it as it was either buy it then off the rack or not at all. I wish I hadnt bought it so I had the chance to try on different styles over the course of the next few months because I only tried on 4 dresses all together and they were all similar styles!
it is an A-line, and it has beautiful detailing but I think its just boring. I wanted something more WOW like a mermaid style or lace etc. I do like my dress, I just dont LOVE LOVE LOVE it! So bees….what do I do? Keep looking and try and resell my dress? Or just be content with what I have? To make it all that much harder, my nan bought me the dress as a gift, and she loves it, so I wouldnt want to offend her by reselling it! Not sure that would be an option…

I did the same as you I bought a dress on my first shopping trip and never got to properly try on any other fits and styles. I intended to, but just never made any appointments to. I also wanted a slightly more fitted dress than the A-line I got, so I ended up having it altered to be a little tighter though the hips. At the end of they day, I loved my dress and am glad I didnt spend more time/money on a new one.

@pinkshoes: Oh Im glad to hear I am not the only one lol. If I keep this dress, I also intend to alter it slightly to my liking (add a lace up/corset back, add a sweetheart neckline instead of straight) That’s what I am trying to figure out, if it’s just not worth all the hassel of finding a new dress and If I should just be content with what I have. hmmm. thanks for your reply 🙂

My advice would be to go shopping again. Try on all those dresses you didn’t get a chance to before. If you find something you love and think it’s the one, sell your other dress. But maybe you will find you don’t love the mermaid or other type dresses and already love what you have.

Do you have a photo? I’m sure it’s beautiful. If my nan had bought the dress, my decision would be made – I’d make up my mind to love the dress no matter what. I’ve gone through the ups and downs of dress regret, too. But at the end of the day, I know everything will be fine. I’ve noticed many times on the Bee that brides who are having second thoughts/dress regrets often look better in their initial dress than a second one that has caught their eye. Try not to stress. 🙂

@MalbecMe: Yeah, here is a photo
Sorry its so big! Thats the plastic bag hanging behind it and also the train is hooked on the hanger too hence the odd shape. when I tried it on my nan fell in love with it and when it came time to pay, she insisted, so I think you’re right that I couldn’t break her heart by switching it on her lol so maybe that is my decision made for me. hmm 🙁

Go shopping again and find your dream dress. If you find it then I’m sure she will understand.

I bet this looks better on you than you think! It looks like the detail is made well, like the waist ruching is in the right place and the top would make your bust look great!
I also happen to really like the plain smoothness of the skirt. 🙂

Sometimes simple is better, and if it helps, men tend to usually prefer the simpler dresses vs the flashy over the top ones women like.
