How the afterglow fades after a few days. Saturday I made a last minute trip home to try on wedding dresses.
All in all, over the 2 weekends I went dress shopping we estimate I tried on 30-40 dresses.
I *thought* I wanted a v-neck, lace, a-line dress … but I tried on a fit & flare, silk taffeta, embroidered and swarovski beaded dress and felt amazing in it.
Should I keep looking, or will I just the confuse the issue, should I stop. I am so confused, I have until mid-november to order the dress.
I see myself adding a lace bolero to get my lace in, and to add a bit more coverage, I think it will look really cute. I am just not sure, and worry that trying on more dresses will just confuse the issue further.

If you want it and you LOVE it and it is perfectly you, then get it. Dont look anymore.

in my opinion, if you love it you should just go for it. if you keep looking you’ll just end up confusing yourself!!

I completely changed what I thought I wanted when I started to try on dresses – I went with what looked best vs trying to track down what I thought I wanted that looked as good. If you still have time, try some more on at different shops to see who offers the best deal (as long as you’re having fun) and also give yourself some time to mull it over as well and figure out what you want.

I tried on the dress I ended up buying 3 times…and it was super helpful to do so. Could you try it on again to make sure you’re still in love?

30-40?!? Damn, girl. I think you should stop trying on new dresses. You’ll just confuse yourself. Instead of trying on new ones, try the potential “one” on again and see if you love it as much.

Go with your heart and get the dress. Heck, I tried on 2 dresses, knew I found the one and then stopped and then freaked out that I missed out on the “bridal” experience. Seriously, it doesn’t matter. Only you know what you want to wear for your wedding 🙂 And 30-40 dresses is a lot!

Your post says it all . . . you “felt amazing” in the silk taffeta fit & flare. You didn’t mention that you felt the same in any of the other (many! 🙂 ) dresses you tried on.
I agree with the pps to go back and try the dress on again.

If you had only tried on a few dresses or found several that gave you a great feeling, I’d say maybe keep your peepers peeled. But you saying that you felt amazing and think its “the one”? Go for it! Youve already tried on enough for htis to be a well informed decision.

Stick with the dress. I know you had an idea in your mind of the dress you wanted, but the fact is that you felt amazing in that dress, and that’s really what matters most. Don’t doubt yourself!

- Wedding: August 2009 - St. Thomas of Villanova Church & the F.U.E.L. House
I searched and searched after finding the dress I loved — and six months later purchased the same gown, which I wore for my wedding. Look if you’re indecisive or want to try a wide range of styles. But if you’re 100% sure it’s the dress for you, order it…and STOP searching!

- Wedding: September 2010 - Casa Real at Ruby Hill Winery
I’m extremely indecisive and bought my dress 3 weeks after I got engaged, on the first day dress shopping. I probably tried on 20 dresses that day. I regret buying my dress so soon now. I have had many doubts and just wish I had taken my time with it. If you’re not 100% sure, then look around some more. You have until mid-November!

I voted for the third option because it sounds like you need more time to clear your head before making such a big decision. I would advise taking the next couple of weeks (since you have time) to really picture yourself on your wedding day. Then, I would go back and try on the gown that you think is the one and see if it is still the one. 🙂
Stick with the process even though it gets REALLY frustrating and confusing…this is the only time in your life that you will get to do this so enjoy it and take your time 🙂

So, just to update: I have decided to go try on some more dresses this weekend. I focused my initial search on a-line lace dresses, so I didn’t try on many others, I am going to go in this weekend more open minded and try on a bigger variety (as well as more fit & flare dresses) just to make sure. If my the end of saturday the Sophia Tolli is still on the top of the list I will call it done, and order her.

I think you should go for it and purchase the dress. I’m sure you tried on dozens of beautiful dresses. If this is the one you keep thinking about and compliments you the most then it is the one for you.
