Honestly, if you love it, and you know you love it, just consider yourself lucky! I tried on more than 15 dresses and I still question my choice. Also, dress shopping wasn’t really fun in my opinion. It was exhausting and I didn’t think to bring water/snacks the first time.

@jll10:  If I were you, and really wanted to try on other dresses, I would maybe consider having two gowns incase I found another I really liked. Or, try to sell the one I purchased at Davids Bridal. The only reason I’m saying this is because you got your dress for a very reasonable price. If it were more expensive, in the $1000 range I’d say stop right there don’t take another step! 

Shopping with your mom is important, so I would go… but be warned that you may fall in love with another dress and be stuck with the battle of figuring out what to do with the other one. And if you can’t sell it, every dress you try on, tack on $400 because that is the extra amount you paid for the previous dress.

@jll10:  If you love your current dress, stop shopping because you will only second guess yourself.  Take mom shopping for her dress to wear at the wedding.

@jll10:  It’s a mistake to look at other dresses after you’ve already purchased one!  It WILL give you dress regret!

That said, I couldn’t really avoid looking at other dresses after I bought mine.  I had dress regret right up until the wedding day.  But I felt great in it on the day and my DH loved it, and the photos turned out GORGEOUS!  So now I feel better, LOL!

I never hated my dress, I just kept second-guessing myself.  I think if you really don’t like your dress and feel bad in it, then you probably should change it.

Yes do stop shopping.  You love your dress and keep it that way.  There are too many dresses out there, there is always going to be a better dress somewhere.  dont get dress reget

The biggest mistake we do is say yes to a dress but keep looking at other options afterwards, this tends to create dress regret. If you love the dress then there is no need to try on other dresses.
