Why not buy a dress like you just described for your reception?  Of course, don’t go spend an arm and a leg for it.

Why don’t you try buying more of a long bridesmaid’s dress in white or ivory. This way you won’t look overdressed compared to the guests, and it will still have a sort of traditional look, but more comfortable.

I feel kind of the same as you.  In general I never wear white/ivory or any light colours, and never got that “Oh my god, this is the one!!!” feeling about any dress.  At the end of multiple shopping trips I just kind of picked one.  I’m hoping that on the day, just the significance of the dress, and the happiness of the day will make it work for me.  But honestly, no, it’s really not my favourite piece of clothing I’ve ever owned, and the industry really makes you feel like that’s how it SHOULD be.

Me too.  I guess I couldv’e tried on more but I don’t think I could LOVE any dress long enough til my wedding!  I’m much more excited for other aspects of the wedding!

I agree with you. Im not raving about my dress.. but its nice enough to wear and the dress itselfs is  reallybeautiful. Im just a little bit shy about being in the spot light and thats what im worried of that I would be able to pull off the look of the wedding dress.

However mine was only 1200 and Im hoping having the dress having it altered will make it a little more exciting for me:)

I was the same way!! I chose my dress bc it was gorgeous but if i had had the time i would have tried on a million dresses. none of the dresses i got were THE ONE, i just found one that i liked more than the rest. And anyways i dont think i would have ever found the one. On the wedding day however, i got a ton of compliments and i absolutely loved my dress because it was my WEDDING DRESS!! sooo i was sad i had to take off my dress bc you can really only wear it once.. and this is coming from a girl who had such a hard time finding a dress i loved. Its normal to feel the way you do, and on your wedding day you WILL love your dress!!

yeah mines just not sitting right at the top… it had the wierdest neckline – like a choker with lace.. I hated the dress when i saw it on the rack, it wasnt until the sales lady said get it altered without the neck choke so it sits straight across that I actually loved the dress. so i cant wait to have that altered. Also its built for a girl with big ta tas and there is a lot of room, so it needs to be altered there 😛

Mine was the 4th dress i tried on, Im glad I got it early but sometimes I wish i tried on dress after dress 😛

One of my friends had a beautiful dress, it was the first one she tried on (because she couldnt be bothered looking for more).. she looked seriously amazing, but she was never thrilled or over the moon about her dress whatsover.. each to their own!

I’m glad I could make you feel better.  It was ridiculously hard to walk into a store full of beautiful gowns, with my mom and bridesmaids, who were expecting me to have that moment, and just…. not.  I feel like a spoiled brat every time I had to tell them I didn’t find anything that floored me.  I’m generally very easy to impress, and LOVE things when I love them.

I am kind of regretting my dress choice… I loved it when I tried it on… then a few weeks later I was thinking I should have shopped more (I bought the 3rd dress I tried on).  Then I went to go pick it up and put it on again and fell back in love with it… and now that I haven’t seen it in a few months I am kind of hating my dress again.

I’m sure once I alter it I will feel better about it, but last night I seriously woke up at 2 am in a panic thinking that my dress was terrible and that maybe I needed a new one…No more “Say Yes To The Dress” for me, that’s for sure!

ehhh I guess I could say I’m not excited to wear my dress, not because I don’t love it, but because I’m way more excited about the whole day than the dress itself. I did not cry when I tried on wedding dresses and picked mine. When one of my bridesmaids heard this she said, “Maybe it’s not the right dress.” My response was- it’s just a dress. I just would never cry over a dress. It does not represent the wedding to me and I am not emotionally attached to it. I’ll probably even sell it after the big day! (gasp!)
