Totally natural!

Has it come in, yet? I freaked out after buying my dress… But the second it came in, I fell in love with it all over again!

@Manda613:  I don’t even have my dress yet (and I really ought to …) and I feel I already know I’m going to have dress regret. Every day, I see a new dress that makes me think: Uh, I really REALLY like this as well…

And as for SO – he likes “clean”, no frill dresses. Well … Let’s just say not gonna happen. With every dress I wonder whether it’d stille be at least somewhat acceptable to him haha.

I haven’t had any dress regret BUT I also took my dress home the day I bought it.  From all the regret articles I’ve read it seems that the waiting period between buying and when it comes in is the most dangerous.   

If you don’t have very specific issues with your dress I’d say wait until it comes in and I’m sure you’ll fall right back in love and it will be beautiful.

@Manda613:  I haven’t bought a dress yet but I hear it’s TOTALLY normal. My MOH had dress regret after she bought hers, but it soon disappated. My advice? Stop looking at photos of dresses online if you haven’t already!
