    No, I've been madly in love with my dress since day one!

    Yes, but eventually I got over it and fell back in love with my dress.

    Yes but now I go back and forth from loving it to hating it...sometimes over it, sometimes not.

    Yes and I never got over it. I still hate my dress today.

    I never had dress regret…I’ve always loved my dress from the first time I saw the sample hanging in the store. I did have a little dress envy after seeing so many beautiful dresses on here but I never stopped loving my dress.

    I walked into the dress store saying NO FLUFF, FOOF, or FRILLIES. I had my heart set on a mermaid or fit and flare with flowers. I tried on a few lace gowns, didn’t do it for me. I tried on a few mermaids and realized there was no way I would be able to dance. I felt like satin and pickups weren’t my style. I started feeling kind of frustrated until the attendant handed me this dress with a drop waist, asymmetrical hem, flowy bottom and a single strap. I was pretty skeptical because of the fluff on the bottom. As soon as I tried it on I realized it was everything I wanted! Our theme was Elegant Country Spring and this was perfect!  My mom said well I say we just ring that one up and call it a day! Love at first sight for both of us that’s for sure! I’ve never seen anything else like it and it was a hit at the wedding. I get my professional pictures back this weekend, can’t wait!

    I originally wanted a sexy little mermaid gown but after trying on several, I just didnt get that “bridal” feeling. I tried on a dress with a huge ballgown (which I was totally against) but it definitely made me rethink the tight silhouette. I realized I wouldnt only get to wear a huge dress like this once in my life, so I may as well go for it. The dress I chose was the perfect compromise between a mermaid and ballgown, slim to the hips, then into a full a-line. I love my dress and even though sometimes I see other brides on here and think, “wow, that could be pretty too”, I feel like I made the best choice for me and have never regretted it! (And as far as the “trendy” aspect of the texture/flowers, Jackie O had huge pinwheel flowers on the skirt of her wedding dress for her marriage to JFK, and people still look to her for wedding gown style inspiration! Wink)

    No dress regret here! I only have teaser pro pics so far and you can’t really see my dress, so I attached a mirror pic I took after I was all ready too. 😛

    I’ve posted mine on here so many times…which probably answers the question!!! I’m just sad that I only got to wear it for one day! I still get butterflies in my tummy just looking at photos of the dress. It was everything I dreamed of.

    I was literally about to create a thread asking brides why the dress regret?!?! If you love your dress, then that’s all that matters! There shouldn’t be any doubts when you fill out that form & get measured, and if there are, keep looking. 

    The only time I was upset over my dress was at my first fitting. It was absolutely huge on me & I didn’t see it the way it eventually looked (after it being taken in 3 times)…

    @LadyElva:  I’m sad you didn’t get dress love on here! Especially because when I scrolled down and say your dress it made me go, “Whoa!” I normally don’t like dress with color “stripes” (wrong word, but I can’t think of what I meant) but the bodice on your dress really makes it! It’s really fun and I bet it suits your personality to a tee.

    No dress regret for me! Madly in love, might be a bit of an overstatement, but I love my dress and have never looked back.

    I tried my dress on first, tried on 2 more, then asked to put the first dress back on. Here she is! We’re making it a sweetheart neckline and pulling it in tighter around my booty 🙂
