Bees…I’ve really screwed myself up. I’ve made a complete mess of the dress process.
Here’s how my dress mess went in a nutshell:
Bought my dress first time out shopping – loved it.
Started second guessing myself.
Fiance accidentally told me he didn’t like sash or ruffles – both on my dress. I panicked and bought a second dress that was way more classic and simple thinking he would like that better. (Maggie – Josie, I posted it a couple days ago)
Have really tried hard to like the second dress I bought, and it’s a beautiful dress, but it just doesn’t feel right. I feel like I could do a lot better.
Now, my first dress is hanging in my closet trying to be sold, my second dress should be coming in, in about a week or two – and I’m not feeling either one.
My wedding is 4 months away – can’t order another dress, not enough time.
Broke down in tears to FI and spilled the whole thing, he of course told me to wear whichever made me feel better.
Went back to the salon and tried on my second dress that I’m waiting for – they reassured me that when it comes in in my size it will be much better. I’m trying on a sample 8 sizes too big that’s been tried on and starting to droop a bit. But I’m not so sure.
I want to start all over again but I can’t of course for timing and money. I feel sooooooo lost and confused, and sad because I don’t feel like I’m having that ‘dress’ feeling or experience. It’s all become a big mess. I want a new dress but there’s no time.
I don’t know what to do. Wear the old dress, the new dress or find a totally new one. I hate that I now hate my dress journey. :((

@Sunshine09: Can you post pics of either?, perhaps we can reassure you, I know that getting honest but positive feedback totally boosted me.

Do you have pics?
Maybe you can sell both the dresses. As for timing, it’s not too late. My wedding is the same day as you and I just purchased (rush order) my dream dress last weekend. I had second guessed myself after falling in love with a new dress and decided to do what made me happy. I know I made the right decision.
You should do whatever makes you happy no matter what. If that means a new dress, do it!

Do you love your 1st dress?!?? If so then thats your answer, you chose that first one for a reason. I promise you when your FI sees you in that dress he wont care, he will think you are beautiful and Im sure he will also think the dress is perfect!!! He wont even see the sash or the ruffles he will only see you, so it really doesnt matter what dress you pick. Just go with what you love!!! He will love it too and love the way you look in it 🙂
Stop dress shopping and dont second guess yourself!

@Lyndzo: Date twin and location twin! Where did you buy your dress??? The rush order – you’re in Milton?? I’m in Toronto! When will it be coming in for you? Most stores I’ve checked can’t get something in in time for August.

I agree with pp – was the only reason you don’t like your original dress because your FI doesn’t like a sash and ruffles?
My dress ended up being completely different to what I thought I wanted and I wasn’t sure if my husband would like it but I loved it and it made me feel good.
On your wedding day there will no other wedding dresses to compare with yours – I am so sure that your FI will be amazed at seeing you and love it no matter what you wear! So long as you feel good it in that is all that matters!
