I’m second guessing my wedding dress which I know is totally normal. I like my wedding dress but I know I could love one more. The wedding is a few weeks away and so I know I can’t get another one. I got it from davids bridal. It was the first dress I tried on, and everyone loved it. I tried on 7 other dresses but they didnt compare to the first one. Now, The more I look at my dress the more I start to pick it apart. It’s a very very simple dress and now I wish it had more to it. I have a sash for it but I think I might want to get something else. Any suggestions how to add more to my simple dress? Did you or have any of you second guessed your dress? If so, what did you do? Thanks! 🙂

Honestly, you look lovely in it, and it’s such a classic style. You’ll never wince looking back at your photos! I see a lot of room available for some great accessories. Maybe a dainty and sparkly set for the ceremony, and then a great statement necklace for the reception?

It is a beautiful dress and it looks really flattering on you! I love that belt!
Not that you need to, but it is possible to still get a dress for May. I had some serious dress regret, found a dress I really loved and just bought it off the rack this weekend, 5 weeks before the wedding, getting alterations done ASAP.

@Valeriemariaaa: I think this is normal! I was also a DB bride, and even though I loved my dress, as time went on I started to worry that it was too plain. Remember that your hair and makeup will be done on the big day, which will make a big dfference. I also added a sparkly earring and necklace set that I found on Etsy, which really helped! I know this isn’t for everyone, but I got a little bit of a tan before the wedding (nothing too extreme, just a little color) which really made the white dress and silver sparkly jewelry POP.

@Valeriemariaaa: I would go for a statement necklace, but that’s not a style everybody enjoys though. Your dress is ”simple” enough (in its shape and fabric) to allow you to have fun with accessories, so if you think a simple, discreet necklace will look too plain, by all means have fun with statement items if it’s more your style ! Wear colored shoes ! etc.

I agree, the dress is beautiful on you.
I don’t have any advice for you because after almost 3 months of ordering mine I’m still second guessing my choice. I wonder when my dress comes in May if I will hate it. It’s so the complete opposite of what I thought I would buy. Felt rushed to buy it. And it’s not a cheap dress either!!
I feel your pain. One thing that did help me though, I had my hair and makeup trial a few weeks ago and I really loved the way I looked all glammed up. I tried to envision myself with that face and hair wearing my dress and the more I think about it the more I realize I just might love how I look that day.
Once you get dressed up and you’re in your dress you might feel 100% different.

@Valeriemariaaa: My dress is really simple too. Sometimes I second guess that it is too simple but, that is just my style. I am dressing it up with a dark gray sash and perhaps a lacy bolero.
I do think the dress looks beautiful on you. However, I also see that you are in CT. If you really want to try on other dresses that will be ready for you wedding, I highly suggest going to Vows/Bridepower in Mass. They bring in designer dresses and sell them off the rack at seriously reduced rates. I bought mine there and took it home that day. You may also realize that your dress is the perfect one for you!

Thanks ladies! I definielty am going to wear a diffrent sash and a necklace. Sadly, I wont be able to get another dress because the wedding is in March. We are already married but my husband is in the military so we were never able to have our wedding infront of family and friends till now. I was limited on dresses becuase I planned this wedding in a little over a month. So I had to find a dress right off the rack in my size with minor alterations. I do feel better now about my dress. I think accessorizing the dress is the answer 🙂 Thanks again!

@Valeriemariaaa: Also a DB Bride here! I agree I would switch up the sash I tried on the same sash the white on white didn’t do it for me but when I swapped to a bolder sash (I went with a champagne/tope color sash) I was in love. I think you’re having the same problem the sash just disappears like it’s not even there. I think the dress it beautiful on you and the perfect statement necklace kind of dress!

I agree with the different sash – try something else and see if you love the dress more with that simple change. I regretted my first dress the minute I got it…I ended up finding the dress I loved to death and knew it was the one and never looked back. People joke that I went through so many dresses, but I wasn’t bridezilla, I just knew it wasn’t what I wanted – it was what other people told me I wanted. Be sure you make the decision for you. 🙂
