I went through the same thing.  I had my dress option narrowed down to two choices, and I ended up choosing the one that was NOT the dress I stared at forever online and thought I would get.  I did at times miss the dress I didn’t choose, especially when I saw other pictures of it, but I was ultimately happy with the decision I made.  I found that any dress envy or doubts I had usually passed rather quickly and I am relieved I stuck with my choice.  I just chalk it up to the fact that there are so many beautiful dresses out there, but we can only have one…it’s just the way it goes!

I’m really starting to feel like most brides go through this, even just a little. The important thing is just to remember why you chose the dress you did! 🙂

I think this is completely normal.  I has serious second guessing right after ordering.  It happens.

As soon as I tried my dress on again, I had no doubts about it.

Oh gosh, me too! Same thing with me! Two dresses, but…you can only wear one, right? Don’t fret!
