the day after i was super excited!i still am i love the dress.

But if you are not sure maybe go back to the store and check again? I guess you could still change it? When is your wedding? Do you have time for the procedures as you say the dress is too small? I bought my dress 5 months before the wedding and was just happy about it so id you are not happy go back and try more.

crackktheskyy:  yup, completely normal. I freaked the day after buying my dress and started looking online at others. Eventually I found a couple dress twins and seeing my gown on some other people just made me realize why I bought my dress to begin with. Don’t worry! Once it arrives, you will love it!!

i know what you mean… but its probably fine.  I love dresses while im in the store.. but when i get home an look at the pics, i dont like them anymore… cell phone pics are just not reliable!!! i dont think they capture the true essence of the dress sometimes…

Im sure its lovely

I just bought my dress on Friday and questioned my own decisions shortly after. I am the type of person that always questions myself about things, so I guess I shouldn’t be surprised. But I went in the closet and got the dress out (it was a discontinued model and I took the one right off the rack) and I think I like it even more now than I did when I first decided on it. Some people will just always be that way, and if you’re anything like me, you will grow to love your dress even more when you see it again!

crackktheskyy:  Haha, yeah I am sure about marrying my fiance but pretty much everything else I have to reconvince myself about for some reason. I guess just because it’s such a big decision and you never know what else might come up in the future. But trust your own judgment…you chose that dress because it was your favorite, and what they look like in pictures is not the same as what the dresses really looked like on you. I have some other pictures on my phone as well and kept looking back at my second favorite. But I know I loved the way the dress I chose looked on me, so I just have to tell my mind to stop trying to confuse me!

I did the same thing! I didn’t cry or have any of those feelings they talk about where you “just know” this is the one. I was torn between 2 and couldn’t decide so I went with everyone elses opinion.  I loved the dress and they told me it was being discontinued so I felt I had to but it that day along with all my accessories and was felt happy with my decision until the dress finally came in. Now I still keep going back to pics of another dress I loved and questioning if I made the right decission. I love this dress and I won’t be upset if I do wear it but I wish I’d taken more time to think about it and went to at least one more store. Everyday I compare pics of the 2 I liked best and have searched for other girls in my dress and the more I look the more it grows on me and I’m happier with my decision. There’s a reason you chose that dress. You obviously loved it enough to buy it so I wouldn’t regret your decision too much. I’m sure when you put it on again the original feelings will come back.
