It’s normal. I had dress regret and luckily for me was able to exchange it. At the end of the day if you don’t love your dress look into options off exchanging it or selling it online to help pay for a new dress.

@apolkadot:   I tried on the dress you’re lusting over and in person it looked very cheap and awful.  The one you bought is similar but looks great and not cheap at all!  I would sick with what you have!

@apolkadot:   The top on the dress you purchased is much prettier!!   I’m not sure if second guessing is normal or not.  There are a lot of threads about dress regret.  I haven’t had a moment of dress regret (knock on wood) – but I tend to fall in the “not normal” category.  LOL

I had some doubts, feelings that I rushed into the decision, etc. But those went away eventually because 1) I’m changing the neckline and beading of the dress to better fit my vision, and 2) once I got into the nitty gritty of planning everything else, any concerns I had over the dress took a backseat to food, music, flowers, etc. Doubts are perfectly normal, don’t rush into buying another dress yet!

@apolkadot:  I think the first dress looks great on you! I might have a biased point of view here though because it’s the dress I got. 🙂

I didn’t have any dress regret.  I got a sample and decided in like 10 minutes to buy it and then had it shipped to my home.  I was worried I would have dress regret, but when it arrived and I put it back on, I knew I had made the right decision!  

 

I think the dress you got is 5000 times better looking than the dress you can’t stop thinking about!!!  In fact, I wouldn’t suspect it as a DB dress, except I can tell you are in their dressing area (lol).  The dresses are SO similar (the ruffles) and I LOVE the train on your dress.  What is it about the dress you want that you like more than your dress??  Perhaps you can do some alterations to your dress to give it the “oomph” that you are seeking?

I second guessed my dress, then ended up hating it so I order another one…now I’m much happier with it!

@apolkadot:  Read your reply, and I think that the dress you got would fit in very nicely with your theme of Casual Elegance!  (nice theme btw!)  

 

I definitely second you seeing the dress you like more in person and seeing the fabric and how it feels/is made.  In the end, you need to get the dress that makes you the happiest!

@apolkadot:  YES! My dress that I am currently waiting on is my 3rd dress. My first was a simple, actually, bridesmaids dress from David’s Bridal. My 2nd was a look a like that I made myself and just could never make myself fall completely in love with because I kept seeing the little flaws in it. My 3rd was made a by seamstress that a friend of mine knows in another state. She is awaiting the final payment to send it to me, but I must say it is the one!

You’re dress is GREAT! I think you’re making a mountain out of a mole hill. You have a beautiful dress. The dress your lusting after is very simple and would probably not make you happy ultimately. It’s your wedding – you should feel a little fancy and sparkly.
