    I would go try your dress on again.  I started having dress regret so I went back to the store and tried it on again.  Once I remembered that why I loved it the regret went away.  It wasnt the dress I regretted, it was that I didnt get to shop as much as I would of liked.  I also waited till a few months before my wedding to shop.  I did feel pressure to find a dress quickly, but it doesnt change that I love my dress.

    I voted to go to that other shop you were talking about. I find scratching the itch always helps whether it’s for a wedding dress or a craving for deep fried spring rolls Laughing

    But also go back and try on your dress again. We all tend to have a slight nagging worry about decisions we’ve made under pressure so at least you can clear the doubt about whether you really love the dress or not.

    2nd, in case you really do decide the dress is not you… well, can you get store credit for the deposit you’ve paid? There are loads of pretty dresses on Oncewed and Preowned… no to mention, there are no end of threads here about Bees getting their dresses from China with good results.
