I made a mistake just now. I looked at dresses online after deciding that I do love my dress. I posted about my dress delima last night here http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/dress-27
Now I’m falling in love with all of the other monique lhuillier dresses. I need to stop this! Here’s a stock photo of my dress (which is also monique lhuillier) that I’m pretty sure I love. Maybe I’ll put her on again just to give me piece of mind!

It is gorgeous. Remember guests are not out there studying dresses (well most lol) so they are not going to be thinking “oh she would have looked better in style 4455” or anything like that.

Stay away from the websites. Just stay away. I remember your post earlier on today and it was amazing!! If you keep looking, it won’t ease up what you are feeling :/

You must stop looking! 🙂 I exchanged my dress for another after I had too many doubts about my original dress. I really love my second dress, but every time I see other dresses I have to tell myself “I already have a dress and it’s gorgeous! stop!!”
I actually did have a love/hate relationship with my first dress – well, more like “it’s okay”/hate. I started having doubts right away after I bought it (in the parking lot!), called and changed the color from ivory to white, and then stressed until it arrived. When it arrived I tried on the dress I ordered plus “the other dress” and made the switch. I’m glad I did… but I’m so indecisive and wishy washy that I don’t think I will ever be 100% completely sure with anything! (I’m going through the same thing with cake toppers, and that’s a lot less important! haha)
It is hard to stop looking though when it seems ads are all over the place and I’m naturally curious as to what other brides are wearing. 😉
Unfortunately wedding dresses are beautiful and there’s so many styles you can really get confused and start second guessing yourself!
By the way, your dress is beautiful. 🙂 And it’s yours!! I’m sure you’ll look absolutely beautiful on your wedding day and your fiance will love it!

I know, I know. I must stop!
@sugarpeach That’s when I started to doubt my dress too! For me it was because everyone gave me a really hard time about the color (the cafe color looked nearly brown in the salon because of all of the white, white dresses). My mom nearly cried, saying that she always imagined me wearing white. I think of that and it makes me cringe. I try to remember that it’s a lovely shade of ivory and nothing close to brown.
…and now I think I need to put it on yet again to remind myself that I do love it.
