Yes, yes YES! We are here for you, sistah! The hive NEVER tires of this sort of babbling. Why? Because we are in the same boat! Bring on the dresses!

YES! And my friends/sister were sick of it within the first week of my obsession. Luckily I discovered the Hive because the Bees are never sick of it. 😀

Gosh, you sound like me, but don’t give up, because you wouldn’t want to get dress regret like I did.  Even just after a month or two of dress shopping, my Fiance and mom were tired and just wanted me to get it over with.  In some ways, I was like, oh ok, I’ll just pick whatever and not bother them with it anymore, and so I agreed to just have the earlier wedding.

Big mistake.  

Don’t let your family/friends stop you from searching.  I think that added pressure of them wishing you’d just find a dress makes it harder on you.  It did on me and in the end I had big regrets of just settling for one.  Just take it easy and be persistent.  Best of luck to you!

Uh, yes!  I’m constantly looking at designers websites and looking at all the dress posts here on the bee.  Everytime Fiance asks what I’m looking at I’m just like, oh ya know, wedding dresses.  As soon as I think I have it narrowed down and call stores they don’t have the dresses in stock that I like!  So frustrating! Then it’s back to looking again.

Somewhere, somebody posted that “no one is as interested in your wedding as you”.  I know this for a fact because A)I am a mature adult B) I am a professional bridesmaid.  And that is why we have WeddingBee–because other people are really interested in our wedding and we don’t have to torture our family/friends.  If I had a 7 year old around, I would take her to every bridal shop because she’s the only one that could handle it.  I love looking at dresses so keep it coming!  However, I think you need to go try some on!

I’m right there with you!! I know my friends all think I’m crazy but I just haven’t gotten that ‘feeling’ yet. I have tried on well over 120 dresses….thats right..one.hundred.and.twenty. Ridiculous!! 

 

Good luck!

All the online/magazine shopping I did made me go crazy too….my best advice is to go try them on! Its so much easier, and some dresses look amazing in pictures, but don’t work with your body type/skin tone/etc. Good luck!

Forget boring people over the dress! wait till youre boring them with chair and linen choices, and centerpieces, and ceremony readings…..

If I didn’t have the internet to vent it all on I’m sure I’d have an ulcer from trying to save my family and FI by keeping in all my OCD bride thoughts.

Oh my gosh, I am OBSESSED. I do the same thing. Look at dresses constantly. My “favorite” changes every single day. It gets frustrating because I wonder if I will know when I have really found “the one?” Or will I just be so obsessed with dresses that I will never feel like it’s the one?
