So I have some dress regret and it’s not that I tried on before and all that. I ordered my dress online.the dress is beautiful. It is very well made and the quality of the material is so luxurious. However, I don’t like how it is pictured. Firstly they sent me swatches and I chose a nice dusty pink. When I got the dress it is pink pink pink. I matched the swatch against it and it’s the exact same thing. I just didn’t imagine it looking so pink. Also, the material is shinier than I liked.
Now, I got exactly what I asked for from the boutique (one in England) and so it’s totally on me. Maybe it’s my lighting, but I’ve tried it on a couple times and just don’t like how it looks when pictured. It wasn’t costly but more than I wanted to pay and my sister helped me pay for it. I would be so embarrassed to say I don’t like it now. I may more than likely go with it, but I’m wondering for you ladies who experienced dress regret, what did you do? If you stayed with your dress, did you regret it?
Thanks for the feedvacj.

Eh, I didn’t love my dress. It’s fine, it’s pretty and it looks good on me but I would pick something different if I did it again. Ultimately, I still loved my wedding day, I love my wedding pictures, and I just don’t think it’s a huge deal that I wasn’t thrilled with my dress. And I still got tons of compliments on it and my husband loved it!

Maybe not a popular opinion on this site…. but I didn’t LOVE LOVE LOVE my dress and I wore it anyways. It was consignment and fit perfectly without alterations, and I felt good in it and I liked it, but was it my “perfect” dress? No. It was the right price and I liked it. I don’t regret my decision, but I am also not that picky and I’m not the type of person who has been dreaming of a certain dress forever.
My dress was quite tight and from some angles, I didn’t think it was the most flattering in photos. If I had been able to find one a bit more forgiving that I liked, I might have bought it instead. That said, I’m thrilled with my wedding photos, etc.
Only you can make the best guess know whether or not you will regret it.

I had it custom made and love it but now and then I wish I’d chose a different color. Sky blue is my favorite so went with that but then I thought a dark peach would have been lovely. One day Fiance says, “I really like yellow.” in my head I’m like dangit yellow would have been awesome. 🤗 Just have to be thankful, keep my priorities straight and not get so emotionally vested in a piece of clothing. Its just a dress. If it looks good to you and on you its a winner.

Yes, this exactly. I wore mine, had a great day, liked how I looked, had great pictures and DH loved it. But looking back, I’d have chosen something different.

I think this is fairly common. With so many new dresses coming out each season and so many dresses available to begin with theres endless options. I really like my dress, but I don’t know tha tI love it. I haven’t worn it yet, I’m hoping I learn to love it in the next 4 months. But if I don’t, does it really make a difference? I think whatever I picked I would have second guessed it.

I see. I’d do some trying on again and see how I feel about it. I HAVE TO HAVE to end up liking it some how because I’m not buying another dress. I don’t hate it, just some aspects about it I hope could have been different. I’m glad to see that people stuck with their dresses.

Due to a combination of finances and location, I’m going with a dress that I’m not totally in love with – but I like it enough. It’s not what I had planned, it’s not my dream dress – but do I want to spend a fortune (dress + import customs) on a dress I wear for a few hours? Nope. So I will wear the dress I have, which is nice enough and makes me look like a bride, and it will be fine!

I actually wish I wore a different dress. There were multiple dresses that looked great on me and honestly looking back at pictures from the bridal salon I probably should have chosen one of them. It’s fine though, my dress did fit nicely and I do like the pictures a lot. I was afraid of my dress being too “poofy” so I ended up choosing one that wasn’t as flattering on me. It looked nice, don’t get me wrong, but I looked quite a bit better in some of the other ones.
