    Yes, I kept looking.  I dont have dress regret, but I also dont believe my dress is THE one.  My dress is ‘good enough’ for what I care to spend on a dress for a few hours of use.

    I bought a dress as soon as we got engaged online but when I got it I hated it… like without even putting it on hated it. So.. I sold it

    Then I shopped on DB online for a few months and then found the dress I wanted… 4 months later I was able to try it on and then bought it.

    After that I didnt’t look anymore and even watched how much I looked at & rated/helped other bees dresses b/c even when you have “the one” if you keep looking the grass begins to look greener on the other side… so

    I didn’t look anymore 😉

    I’ve continued to look, just for fun, but considering what a tight budget I was on and my modesty standards, I’d be hard-pressed to find another dress that I love more than the one I’m wearing in four weeks!

    I answered based on my second dress purchase. i bought one, had major dress regret, sold it and bought another. once i had my REAL true love of my life, dress, i did not ever consider trying on another one. BUT whenever i went to the bridal store to look at shoes, jewelry, for fittings, whatever, i would always browse the dresses just for fun!  i never once doubted my Jenna though.

    I am like the two other girls….I bought one and am trying to sell it. It has only been a week or two but I KNOW my new dress is for me. But i think I will stop looking just in case! I cant afford another one!

    My option isn’t on here.. I kept looking  (online, didn’t try any on) when I was having dress regret but my continued search reminded me why I loved MY dress.. the other ones didn’t compare.

    I love looking at wedding dresses 🙂 I love my dress, but it’s still fun to look at others!

    Haha I went shopping ‘just for fun’ after I ordered my dress, I even posted a thread about it too! And then so many bee’s told me to stop LOL.

    I am 150% positive that my dress is THE ONE. I’d been in love with it for a year from a b/w newspaper ad before I ever saw it in person. But dress shopping is just so much fun 🙂

    I absolutely continued to look at dresses (I think part of my issue was that I bought it early and 5 months had passed since I had seen it in person…which leads to doubt)-

    I actually now have two dresses (yes I got a second one) and I will decide which one I’ll wear by August (although I think Im going with the second) and then I will sell the other.

    I never thought I’d be going through all this craziness!

    I try to keep myself from looking at dresses often because there are so many styles I find beautiful and it makes me second guess all the time…i have NEVER been this indecisive in my life.

    @WineAndCupcakes: WOW I admire your ability to keep trying dresses on!

    I wish I could do that- it was my favorite part of the whole wedding process.

    @pink.sequins: lol!

    @Evie19: I can *ONLY* justify it by the fact that I think I want a reception dress b/c mine is seriously like twenty pounds – I don’t think I can hold that up dancing all night LOL!!! But then all I want to try on are big poofy dresses. Not what I need in a reception dress hehe

    Yup, kept looking and that is how I ended up with four, ok really only two long ones and two short ones for the reception.  Crazy I know!  But with my second long one, I actually did try on more than several after I had put the deposit on it and I still love MY dress the most.  I think the saddest part about the wedding being over is having no excuse to try on absolutely beautiful gowns.

    After I ordered my dress, I would look at pictures of the model in my dress and swoon over how amazing it was… never had any desire to try on other dresses. I was sure that was it. I felt smug.

    Then the dress actually arrived to my house. It needs alterations, but even after those I think it might not be the dress… it is GORGEOUS… but perhaps not the most flattering on my body.

    So today I went and tried on another dress. Aaaand I think I might sell mine. Oops.
