If you’re willing to cut your losses and sell the first dress, you should look.  But that said, when you walk down the isle, you know he’s going to think you look fabulous no matter what 🙂

If you can’t afford to be a two-dress bride, then stop looking!  No looking online, in magazines, and definitely not in person!  I think it is very common to have dress regret, so what you’re going through is normal.  Just remember there is a reason you bought the Christos (you wouldn’t have bought it if it looked bad) and I’m sure you look great in it!

@zoe: I just googled your Christos dress and it’s so pretty!!  I went to Glamour Closet in LA, and honestly, I wasn’t all that impressed.  They do get new shipments in all the time though, so who knows what they have there now.  I just think your dress is so pretty… I doubt you will find something better at Glamour Closet.  🙂

I too had dress regret–twice.  I know now that I should have spent a lot more time looking before buying.  You have a long time until your wedding date.  Stop looking now.  If you are 5 months out from your wedding and unhappy/unsure, then give it another go.  Otherwise, you’ll just keep doing this over and over for the next year. Having said all that–I really love the Christos!

Not to look!  If you can’t afford to be a two-dress bride, don’t do it!  You can look forever and there will always be “better” (read: often more expensive) dresses out there – yes they are all beautiful, but if you LOVE how you feel and look in the dress you bought, then don’t let the doubt creep into your mind!  Your FI will think you are GORGEOUS, regardless of what you wear!

I think I tried a totaly of 10 dresses, if not less.  Do you really want to try 100 dresses???

I love the Christos Desiree! It was one of my dream dresses, but too much for my budget. Congrats on the steal!

When I have the urge to spend money that I know I shouldn’t, I think of other things that I could buy with the money I am about to spend and what it would be like if I had to live without them.  For example, would you be spending your limo money on the second dress?  Or would you have to cut back your flowers?  Or have no cake??  Not that you would actually have to go without these things, but you get the idea.  BTW I checked out your dress…STUNNING, not to mention TIMELESS, and CHIC.  Years from now when you look back at your wedding photos, you’ll smile because you chose a gown that your daughter could wear on her wedding day!  (That is, if you choose to have children =)

not to look! I had regrets, and ended up buying a second dress that now i regret getting.  i googled the christos, and it is GORGEOUS!!! Is it an a-line? No, but it’s also not a big ball-gown either – and if you’re really concerned with the amount of poufy-ness, you can use either a less full petticoat, or if there’s some built in, remove a couple of layers of support tulle.  if it worked on ‘say yes to the dress’, i bet it would work for you!

 

i say don’t look, and know that you wouldn’t have bought the christos in the first place if you didn’t love it and you could picture yourself walking down the aisle to your fiance 🙂
