I’m having a very small wedding of 15 or so people, and I got a dress which is perfect for a small wedding, but wrong in my head and heart for how I envision myself as a bride. Can I have a big, fancy dress with the tiny wedding? Or do I need to compromise the dress to fit the occasion?
I ordered the dress yesterday and was up all night regretting my decision. I am going back to the bridal shop today to cancel the order, and I have some other options I tried on, the one I love being the “big, fancy wedding dress”. Just wanted to get some opinions. I know I should probably just listen to my heart, but would like to hear from all of you anyway.

Go for the big fancy dress, IMO!

Of course you can have the dress of your dreams, why not?
I’m having a private elopement (just me and my groom) and I’m going all out (dress, veil, shoes…etc.)
Go for it!

My thoughts are, it could just be you and your FI and you should wear your dream dress. If you want a big fancy wedding dress, go for it. I don’t think you need to compromise because the occasion is your wedding!! Cancel your order and get what you want!!

Its the same for older brides, second time brides, pregnant brides, etc etc etc.
There are all these ‘rules’ that are utter crap imo.
Where what you want, whatever that may be!
