    Honestly, your wedding is so far away. Keep the one you have for now and wait longer before looking at new dresses. Since you love looking at them, you may love another and buy it, but then hate that one down the road. You’ve got lots of time.

    It;s a beautiful dress, but if you really don’t love it I’d consider selling it and looking for a new one. You’ve definitely got some time.

    Yeah, you have so long until your wedding that you should probably just start over.  To have dress regret over a year out is hard to hold off.  Plus, you’re probably right about your dress not going with your potential venue choice!

    It’s lovely but I agree, you probably won’t be comfortable wearing this at the beach. If I were you I would get a different dress.

    I would get more of your wedding plans set in stone before I would think about the dress. Once you have your venue set and know exactly the feel of your wedding go back and try on the dress and go from there.

    Don’t worry-the investment is not thousands of dollars (luckily!) you can always sell it and get a new one, and the dress, I agree, definitely does NOT suit a beach wedding.

    Go dress shopping by yourself a few times, and take lots of inspiration pics with you!

    Knowing how back and forth your plans have been I would wait on the dress!  You wanted a backyard, then something at a reception hall in georgia…and then you said destination!  Make sure you’re set on that first, and that your fiance is finally comfortable getting married before you finalize anything!

    I don’t think that dress would work very well with a beach wedding, but it sure is pretty.  You’re wedding is still over a year away so I would keep looking and see what else is out there that would work better for a beach wedding.  And I wouldn’t buy a wedding dress until you know where you guys are getting married or at least not until you’re set on a specific TYPE of wedding.  Make sure YOU love the next dress — they can be expensive and you don’t want to keep buying dresses.

    I’d say hold ono it until plans are set in stone, then try it on again and see how you feel. If you still really, really want a different one, then sell this one and buy a new one.

    I say get a new one… but not yet!  Enjoy looking at dresses until 2013 hits, then start shopping in earnest again.  With that much time, you should be able to find a good deal, particularly on something light and flowy for the beach.

    You’re clearly lukewarm about it, even from the beginning. If you really loved it at first then got cold feet, it would be a different story, but it sounds like too many voices got in the way of your own. So I have no problem saying this is probably not the dress that will make your happiest on your wedding day.

    You have time to look around a bit and not make any solid decisions. Maybe a dress you love even more than the too expensive one will turn up. Once you’ve settled on a venue, you can look into buying a new dress (do this part first), then selling the one you have (maybe to your sister since she loves it so much?).
