So, I have been through a lot with my dress. It was hemmed 3-4 inches too short, which the seamstress said that it was ok to be that short. I had major issues with the shop and trying to make that right, and they were very wishy washy about what the were doing with my dress. This issue is all over, and they have fixed my dress, and my mom currently has my dress.
All the pictures I have of my dress is badly taken, so the dress looks awful, and I have only seen it once in person after the shop fixed the hem, and for the majority of the time the bustle was up. So in my mind my dress looks horriable.
I have been trying to tell myself that my dress is fine, and I haven’t really given it a good look. etc…
Well yesterday, on my way to my horse stables from work, I started to freak out that my dress is a disaster. (When I freak out I tend to have a pretty bad panic attack) I couldn’t think or breath… I talked to my mom and she assured me that my dress was beautiful, but I am sure that my mom would tell me anything I picked out is beautiful. I called my FI, and he said that we could go to my moms house (1 hour away) and try it on.
I came home right away, and off we left to my mom’s house. I tried on my dress, and it looked perfect. FI even looked at it (which he wasn’t going to do before the wedding, but it made me feel a lot better) and he loved it.
Has anyone ever had the same feeling, even though their dress is perfect for them?

I had second thoughts a few times. I knew I had ‘that’ feeling when I tried it on, but after so long not seeing it I was afraid I made a mistake. But it was perfect 🙂 I’m glad you feel better now!

i can! i had serious dress regret – i cried to DH so many times about it – i liked my dress enough but i wasnt sure if i tried on enough – i kept seeing dresses that i loved more. when the wedding day came though i almost cired when i put it on – i had to fan tears away from my face – i really really loved it.

oh dear, that must have been difficult with the alterations, pleased to hear it’s sorted now! And that you can now be confident in it!
My dress hasn’t been altered yet, so fingers crossed it’ll be ok (when I last tried it on it seemed like I might not need any…) but it’s ballerina length and while it is really what I want I went through a lot of dresses to make sure. I ended up awake in the middle of the night the other day panicing big time I’d made a mistake. I had to remind myself that it was the 2nd dress I’d tried on and even after another 30 or so I couldn’t stop thinking of it…it has to be the right dress!! 🙂

Many thanks to all of you. I am glad that I am not the only one who has had second thoughts. I did feel so relieved when I tried it on last night.

So great that your dress is all sorted now and you are happy with it….
I am 4 weeks out and had some major issues with mine also (long story for another post) I am freaking out on a daily basis that it is going to be awful and unfortunately it was mum’s screw up – I find it hard to talk to her atm as I’m so angry. I am flying in for a fitting this weekend and try to sort problems out…… fingers crossed it works out as your seems to have.

I’m sure it’s gorgeous, but I know how you feel!
I bought my dress early because my mom bought it for me when we were shopping and we both loved it. I’ve since read bees badmouth the style of dress, and seen dresses that I think are more beautiful, but the pictures I have of me in it are great, and I feel like it’s perfect for me when I’ve worn it at my fittings (and I feel beautiful wearing it).
Just try not to overthink it. 😉
