I can’t figure out if I should stop looking for dresses or not.
I’ve posted about the dress hunt a few times. Once I found a dress that I loved at David’s Bridal. But I wanted to make sure I went to other stores, and I did. I then found a Casablanca that I love as well. I put up a poll, and the Casablanca won. I know if I had to choose right now I’d pick the Casablanca over the David’s Bridal dress. (Fiance said bad things about the David’s Bridal dress, and when I picture myself at the wedding now, it’s in the Casablanca.)
I can’t really place my finger on it, but something just tells me I should keep looking. It’s not that I don’t love the dress, just that I have a case of “what if there is something better.” I don’t want to keep dragging my MOH’s and my mom around though.
I am going to a store this weekend who carries the Casablanca and includes alterations in the price of the gown. The intention is to get measured and order the dress. Should I look at the other dresses just in case? I can’t decide….

I saw on an episode of SYTTD that most brides will only stop looking after they have found The One. Meaning if in your heart you know you aren’t through, then you aren’t through. Not until you have completely decided that you are Done.

I tried on tons of dresses (w/o any real intention of buying since I had so much time). I started leaning towards one dress in particular, an all lace trumpet style Allure. It was GORGEOUS, I loved it when I tried it on, but I didn’t cry, I didn’t feel like this was it, plus I wanted to try on more. Well the more I tried on the more I felt like I would be going with the Allure dress. But then I tried on MY dress. I totally had THE MOMENT it was amazing! My mom asked me if I liked it better than the other one and my response was, “what other one?”. My point with this long post is that you should never settle. I didn’t think I was going to but looking at the situation now, I would have settled with the Allure dress. If you can honestly say to yourself this is my dress with the casablanca than go for it. But IMHO I think you should keep looking (or at least go back and try on the dress again for more insight.)
