- Wedding: March 2013
So, if you were following my posts, I still haven’t received my original dress, but I had massive dress regret and ordered a David’s Bridal dress that I saw on another bride and loved for less than $500.
I received it today and tried it on at home. I don’t have any pictures, because it’s nearly impossible to take a picture of yourself in a wedding down, and I don’t have anyone to help me.
I have to say, I really liked the dress. I felt kind of sexy in it, which I don’t feel in my dress… or at least I don’t remember feeling in it. I have so many conflicting feelings, I just don’t know what to do.
But I don’t think I can keep it, because I feel suuuuuuuuper guilty. I feel stupid that I didn’t try on a cheaper DB dress to begin with, because I sort of wish I’d found this one first. I feel guilty for spending so much money on my original dress. I feel guilty for not liking it more. One of my bridesmaids picked out the original dress I wound up buying, so I’m afraid if I don’t wear it, she’ll be offended. I had my mom, my MOH, my FMIL, and two other bridesmaids with me when I picked my original dress and I picked out this DB one online by myself. I didn’t even have anyone to take a picture of me in it when I tried this one on.
Anyway, I think I am going to return it, because I think I’m losing my mind and obsessing about this whole thing way too much and I have a dress coming in that cost twice the amount of the David’s Bridal dress, so really, what business do I have getting another dress… but I liked it. If (god forbid) my dress regret doesn’t go away, I will come back to this DB dress… so I guess we can consider it a back-up.
I reeeeeally hope I love my dress again when it comes in. This is such an awful feeling. I feel like I’m committed to it, because I spent $1,200 on it and I’d never be able to get that much back, but I’m really nervous I won’t love it again.
I could cry over how much this has taken over my life. I feel so stupid.
