It’s pretty…why are you regretting it? Does it not feel like you?

I have always loved that dress!!! Even from years ago when I seen it advertised on a billboard outside David’s Bridal…It’s very pretty and princess like.

It’s a very pretty dress and it will look gorgeous on you but if you don’t feel comfortable in it, then I will try to go back to the store and tell them you’re having a change of heart about the dress. Tell them you intend to buy a dress from them but changed your mind about the style. I know exactly what you’re going through because I was in the same situation as you! Please don’t settle, you will not be happy unless you’re comfortable! Besides, you are not being picky, you’re just being specific and it sounds like you know exactly what you want! 🙂

Good luck!!!!

I’m petite too (although not as small as you!) and, while I think it’s a very pretty and fun dress, it may be too much for a tiny girl. You want to be wearing your dress, not the other way ’round. I had second thoughts about the first dress I picked and I was trying to reason myself past it. My mom convinced me to take my second thoughts seriously and figure out what they were trying to tell me. We went shopping one more time and I found a great dress about which I haven’t had a single second thought. You should not feel at all silly or self-consious in your wedding gown. Trust yourself: if your doubts continue, you haven’t got the right dress! Resell it at a bit of a loss and find the one that feels just right. -JB

P.S. I think you may have bought the dress because it fit perfectly. After trying on many dresses that were way too big on me, I noticed I’d be much more excited about a dress that actually fit. It’s hard to get an idea of what a dress will look like if the sample is several sizes too big. It’s got to do much more than fit you, though. If you’re not excited about wearing it, it’s not your dress

Wear what makes you comfortable and is right for you.  Don’t settle.  If you think you will be uncomfortable in it all day this may not be the dress for you.   Go with your gut.  Have others seen it?

Yeah, I tried that one on too… it’s an easy dress to get “lost” in, and I’m 5’8″ with a, ah, sturdy bone structure!

I was in your exact position, so I can totally relate! I tried on my “old” dress (my Future Mother-In-Law picked it out for me, too!) a couple weeks ago and my friend snapped a few pictures of me. I do have a new dress, now- but when I showed Fiance the pictures of me in the old dress, and his comment was “Wow- you look really really uncomfortable.”.

I have to echo what others have said- wear a dress that makes you FEEL good. If you feel self concious in the dress, that will communicate itself in the pictures whether you want it to, or not!
