How many do you have? I’d suggest that you STOP LOOKING, lol. Because you’ll always find something that looks better…and second-guessing is no fun.

I  REALLY love the first one. I think you should really stop looking and just be happy with what you have because theyre gorgeous.

Hon, those dresses are all gorgeous on you.  At least explain what you don’t like about the dress. “Hate” is a strong word and it seems weird that you would try it on in one scenario and love it enough to buy it and then hate it hours later. Plus, they’re all kind of the same: sort of a mermaid silhouette (well the first one’s more of an a-line) and lace with overlay. If you are going to do more shopping (which I don’t recommend, but if you are–) then STOP buying the same dress! And DON’T allow yourself to buy the dress on the same day that you try it on–give yourself a week to think it over.

Are you sure that you’re not expecting too much? Some brides expect to meet Jesus when they try on “the dress” and sometimes that just doesn’t happen. At the end of the day, it’s just a dress: it doesn’t do your dishes, it doesn’t give you a raise, and it’s not therapy. Make sure that you’re not holding these dresses up to some fantasy of “the perfect dress” that doesn’t exist.

“I just wanted to have people say “wow” when they say me in my gown”

Remember they aren’t seeing the whole package! On your wedding you’ll have your hair and makeup done, be in a beatiful venue, etc.

And also remember that nobody else is as emotionally involved or cares about your dress as much as you do. So don’t take it personally if they aren’t dropping their jaws and ooh-ing and aah-ing when you show them a picture or try it on for them.

Both dresses are beautiful! I thought “WOW!” when I saw both of them.

@TurkineseBride: Ah–well, the “wow” thing is kind of abstract, so perhaps you are holding the dresses up to too high a standard. Some things to remember:

-There is not a single bride in history who did NOT ‘wow’ on her wedding day.

-The “wow” factor is the sum of the whole picture, which goes beyond the dress–you’ll have your hair and make-up done, your veil, shoes, proper lingerie, and you’ll be elated because it’ll be THE day. When you wear the dress at home, it’s not the right occasion and YOU are also probably not all done up which can affect how you think a dress looks (this is why they always tell brides not to look too schlubby when shopping for a dress!)

-There are lots of ways you can “wow” the guests: you can have a skirt that is 10 feet wide or a train that is 20 feet long. Or your dress can have pyrotechnics. Or it could be completely sheer on top. All of these would be “wow” but not necessarily in a good way. In other words, the best “wow” factor is when a dress makes a bride look and feel happy to be HER; NOT when she tries to impress other people. So change your conception of “wow” from something that is right for you, not impressive to others.

if you use a coriline or petti coat under the dress for the first 2 dresses shown here it will make wonders on your dress
