I had a hard time choosing between 3 dresses as well.  First, you have to try them all on.  What you see on a model may not be what you see when you are in it. 

What helped me was envisioning myself walking down the aisle.  If you know what song you are walking to or type of music (classical for ex.) play that.  Close your eyes, envision yourself that day with the music playing, walking at your venue down the aisle towards your groom.  I literally had a picture of each dress up on my monitor, after I had gotten the vision in my head I would open my eyes and look at one dress.  I repeated the process for each dress looking at a different one each time and it was crystal clear which dress should be mine.

Sounds a little crazy but it worked for me.

YEP.  I can’t decide between 4 dresses.  I already bought/own them all and need to do some reselling soon. 

 

I LOVE that first one you posted however.  Are you not able to find a store that sells that brand in person?

Where is the first dress from?  What prevents you from being able to try it?

I just decided one day that I would go make a decision and buy a dress, and I did.  I had tried on too many dresses and was getting anxious…so I just stopped and bought a dress.  I love it!

OP… I don’t think you could ever truly be content and satisfied with your dress choice unless you try on that dream dress. Sucks that you would have to pay $50 to do so, but I think that’s alot better then to buy a dress then decide you can’t stand it and end up having to buy a new one.

@boynamedgirl:  How much is the dress that you love?  Is it worth the $50, and would the $50 go toward the cost of the dress if you did like it?

I just went through all of this.  I had a dress that I really wanted to try on with the same scenario, it would cost $50 to order, and if I didn’t buy it, that money was wasted. I just didn’t want to take that risk.  So I tried on dresses with similar silhouettes and found that they didn’t suit my body type anyways…

So I went on a rampage, trying on 160 dresses.  Narrowed it down to 3, then ruled one of those out.  Then found another to throw in to the mix…then just kept eliminating until I was down to 1.  THEN, decided I still wasn’t sure…so I made ONE MORE appt.  I thought surely there was no way I’d find anything better and ended up finding something completely different than my dream dress AND the dress that I thought I was going to get.  

My only advice is if you aren’t 100% sure…keep looking.  It gets frustrating, and tiresome, but when I finally tried on that last one, it clicked and I”m glad I didn’t give up.  🙂

Let’s just say I had my eye on the Wtoo Hera, however it’s not in stores yet…SO, I went and tried on some dresses..I bought a dress, but would have NEVER considered it based on how it looked on the model online, but on me, it looks great. I am right there with you. I had dozens of dresses and sillouhettes picked out, but when I actually tried some on, it was a big no. I’d go try some on and see what makes you shine:) Mine is similar to the third one:) It’s called the Enzoani Dabra. However, in the back of my head, I am worried I’ll change my mind:( I am just very indecisive and I think I would have done this with any dress..Love all three though..They are each very different too!

I tried on dress #1 and, while it is beautiful, I ended up choosing a dress that retails for about $1,000 less.  I agree with the PPs who said you need to try on the dream dress to know if it really is your dream dress!  You may love it on you, or not, but at least you won’t have to wonder.
