Was making a decision on a dress difficult for you?

I really thought that I would. I’m awkwardly shaped in that I have a very small bust but quite large hips and bum and thighs, and I am SO particular about what I will and will not wear. But strangely I really didn’t have any problem with my dress. I tried on three dresses in one shop, picked one of them and that’s me done. I know if I went into ten shops I wouldn’t be able to choose, so once I loved a dress I just bought it.

Yes! You probably just want everything to be perfect so you second guess yourself. I think it’s totally normal. Look until you just know, you will get there eventually 😉

I thought it’d be a much bigger task than it would be because even though I am a very decisive person I have my moments where I can spend hours in a store holding a picture frame debating if I really want it or not!

I didn’t even step foot in a dress store and bought mine on eBay. I just took my measurements to make sure I ordered a dress that was at least relatively close to my size. After a couple weeks of just browsing dresses I came across the one that I purchased which I fell in love with as soon as I seen the picture! It also just happened to match my measurements perfecty so it was a no brainer.

@CLK198711:  I actually lucked out. I started looking early bc I wasn’t sure I would find anything for a while… But I ended up falling in love with the very first dress I tried on! I still tried on others but they didn’t compare at all. However after being on here Nd seeing how many people have dress regret it made me glad that I’m the person that once my mind is made up I’m done. I’ve seen other dresses that are pretty but never went trying on more or seen anything I like as much.  but if you aren’t 100% sure maybe keep looking until you are so that you don’t end up regretting your decision later 🙂

I had a difficult time. In fact I didn’t order my dress until 5 months before my wedding because I couldn’t decide.  I really wanted a fitted dress & they did NOT look good on me at all! I don’t have hips so I don’t have that shape for them. So then it took me forever to find a ball gown that I liked & that looked good on me!

I had an amazing consult so no. I only went to one store and four hours later I bought a dress. I brought photos, talked about my wedding and where it was being held. The consultant took my ideas and went off to pull dresses that matched and I was allowed to browse and pull dresses. I had a no pile and a yes pile. When it was over we went back to the pile of dresses I really liked and found the one I loved! It actually differed the second time around. There was one I had loved previously that I liked less once I tried on another one I loved. Also, they asked me tons of questions about what I did and didn’t like about the dress, etc. 

I’d say go back and try them on again.

Ha, yes! I’m still trying to decide and my wedding is in less than 7 months. I’m torn between two styles and I’ve posted on here asking for advice. I’m detail oriented, so I have a hard time seeing the actual dress and get wrapped up in the details.

@CLK198711:  I think if I had more time, I would have been. But we got engaged in December and planned our wedding for this July. There was no question that what ever dress I chose was going to need alterations… so I was consistantly told in no-uncertain terms that I was going to need to purchase my dress by the end of January in order for it to get here in time and have the needed alterations.

I purchased the first gown I fell in love with and stopped looking.
