@MamaMegs721: I’m going through the same thing. I am already a 2 dress bride and I made my final desicion before I had my weding theme and before I feel in love with lace, natural waist, and scalloped sweethert neclines. *sigh*

So I’ll tell you and myself to breathe and try and remember what made us fall in love with the dresses we picked. No matter what we are going to look beautiful on our wedding days. Wink

ME TOO! I’m super easy going. ALWAYS said that I’d get a cheap dress, even a white bridesmaids dress because it’s just a dress… but now that I’m planning a wedding, I’ve gotten the wedding bug and I feel myself overthinking everything and spending every spare moment thinking about the details. I have to step back and take a break.

It sounds to me like you’re a maximizer- you have a gorgeous dress but you want to make sure it’s THE hands down, absolutely best choice on this planet for you for your big day, but you haven’t gone through enough and eliminated enough dresses to KNOW that you found that dress.

So my advice to you… few things. I think that when it’s your wedding day, and you’re getting ready, and you’re excited, you WILL be feeling and looking beautiful. The dress is seriously stunning. It’s romantic and glam rolled into one.

I don’t know if this is sound advice (lol, sorry), but if you really can’t stop thinking about it and it’s giving you anxiety, let yourself go to one more big store and try dresses on. You can always buy a dress off the rack, or buy a used dress on the recycled bride sites. That way, you’ll get the dress in a matter of weeks and cheaper too.

But then you might be stuck with a 2nd dress. But it’s just money, you can always make more money, right? And maybe you can sell it. And plus, there’s tons of 2-dress brides out there.

And remember…not every bride has that “I put the dress on and cried and I’m so thrilled to wear it on my day.” It doesn’t happen to everyone- not everyone has that connection to their garment.  And that’s ok! You just have to be confident and feel great in your pretty dress.

Anyway, I think you’ll find that you did make the right choice, you just might need to try on a whole bunch more dud dresses to know it 🙂
