So I thought buying a dress was just like finding a man… once you find the one, you can’t even see any others! I’m like that with my Fiance (haha!) but I’m so not like that with my dress… with only 5 weeks til my wedding! Any other brides out there feel the same way? Like maybe they didn’t try on enough and aren’t completely satisfied? I still see other dresses and am really sorry I can’t try them on.
Any married bees that went through this and ended up happy on their wedding day?? Anyone still regret it after the wedding?
Here’s me in my dress. For some reason we didn’t take a photo of me actually from the front during this try on, so this is the best I have. I know it is a really pretty dress and I loved it for a long time before we actually bought it, but for some reason I just can’t get over the feeling that it doesn’t look as good on me as I would like. This is really killing me right now 🙁

It’s not a great picture for getting a good look, but from what I can see, I think it looks beautiful on you. Also, once your hair and make-up are done, it will make such a difference!

I think it’s really pretty. Is there something specific you’re not liking about it? Maybe if you tell us specifically what you’re not so into we can give suggestions on options to make you love it again.

I think most of us get a bit of dress regret just because there are so many gorgeous wedding gowns out there but you look amazing in your gown please don’t have dress regret. You look wonderful!

Stay off of here bc it makes it worse! I think if I wasnt on the bee I wouldnt have feelings of dress regret! Funny thing is: I’ve tried to go look at a popular dress on here but both times the shops couldnt find the sample! I took it as a sign!

@S.Elizabeth.G: I guess I think maybe it makes me look hippy, or that I should have gotten a dress with ruching on the waist to make me look thinner. Or maybe an empire waist. I don’t really know.
Thanks for all the positive comments everyone! I really appreciate hearing these thoughts.

I think a dress can look great on someone and you still not like it. Sometimes it’s just not for you or your personality… if you aren’t into it, find something that you LOVE!

I love your dress, it actually look sorta like mine. I think the issue lies in that you don’t think it looks “as nice as you would like” on you, so the problem is probably that you are not happy with yourself for some reason. I don’t think another dress would change this, because that is a whole different dimension than “just” a wedding dress. Be happy with yourself (as cliche as that sounds) and you will love your dress more. You wanted it for a reason. And for the dress regret: I never regreted my dress, it was the one the second I put it on! But do I wish I could try on other dresses: heck yeah! All day long, every type of wedding dress, just to see what it would look like! Don’t worry about it too much, it looks great!

Congrats !!!! You are getting married soon !!! I think because of the Internet and being on the bee it is very easy to get caught up in the bigger better newer dress!!! And that can cause a little regret for some of us though the way you felt in the dress and the magic that made you choose it will still be there when you finally get to wear it on your special day !!! You look beautiful look at some of the before and after pics of other bees as you in your dress in a change room vs you in your dress glowing with happiness on your wedding day will never make you regret it !!!!!

@nativedesires: I think you’re totally right…. I really shouldn’t look at any pictures on here, I doesn’t help. And I also will try to remind myself of what you said when I start feeling down…. It’s all about the fact that I’m getting married, and I’ll probably be so excited/happy on the day I won’t be worrying about if I should be in a different dress.

I think your dress looks really pretty. I’m sure on the day, you won’t be thinking about it at all. You’ll look and feel beautiful and no, it doesn’t make you look hippy at all.

It’s easy to get dress regret if you’re out looking around, so STOP LOOKING! You wouldn’t keep dating after meeting Fiance, right? Plus, your dress is lovely!
