Not.At.All.   I thought I wanted sleek, satin, sexy…. I ended up with ruffles and A line and beading.  Hmmmm

I thought I wanted a slight A-line all satin with beading… but I ended up with a princess dress ball gown with a tulle skirt and NO beading!!!!!!

So yes that happened to me! But now I couldn’t imagine having a dress like my original vision!

Not at all!  I wanted a beautiful, flowy, chiffon or lace dress.  These were my two favorites:

And I walked out with this one, and it’s perfect!

Nope, I was imagining lace and A-line skirt… ended up with sleek silk satin with zero embellishments in a trumpet shape!  Tongue out

The dress I got is what i have always wanted!  i love it but now I am second guessing what i always wanted!  I think its just natural to look at other dresses and like them because they are beautiful but chances r if you put them on they would just be that, a pretty dress!

nope…and it’s probably a good thing too. if i went with what was originally in my head, i’d have looked as if I had just walked out of a renaissance faire!

When I first first started shopping, I didn’t think I would be into lace, but I knew I wanted something that really hugged my curves. One lacey dress later, I was hooked. I only tried on lace mermaid dresses after that.

Totally natural to have buyers remourse. My dress looked nothing like what I wanted/envisioned but it worked out. The dress i bought was built for my body type.. the other ones didn’t look as good or make me feel special.

Not at all. I thought I wanted an empire waist dress in silk. I ended up with a more form-fitting dress A-line dress in satin. But I love my dress so much! I can’t wait for it to arrive in June.

NO! It was the EXACT opposite of what I wanted…I had always pictured lace, very simple and I ended up with NO lace and lots of tulle!! SO not me.
